Gifs and Updates and Things and Stuff, also an Animatic
I found myself with a chunk of free time a week or so ago and finally had a chance to create a Rick and Morty gif. I had a lot of fun making it and tried to stick to the style of the show as much as I could. Although I didn’t use character rigs or Harmony like the show, (I do love me some Flash) I think it still turned out pretty successful:
I have also been working on a Valentine themed gif. I really just wanted an excuse to make something really gross and inappropriate for a “sweet holiday.” It took a lot longer than I anticipated to come up with an interesting way to shape all the gross elements into letters, and even longer to make them move and wiggle- but the awkward looks I got while working on this from other students in the lab made it worth it.
I think both of these gifs are a lot larger than what this site will let me post in an article, they may have to be clicked on to see them in their entirety.
I made progress on my animatic for class. The ‘drag queen’ and ‘unsociable man’ character designs have been tied down a little more and I have a draft to show. There is still a lot of work to be done before rough animation can begin, but I’m not too sure if this will move on to full frame-by-frame animation. I have a lot of stuff going on with school so this may just have to exist as an animatic for now. (It will be much more polished of course)
