Tick Tock O'clock


Here is a clock from my project. I like animating scenes this simple.

Almost done

Only two more backgrounds to go and a little bit of animation. Then i just have the hideous task of putting it all together. It was quite fun focusing on the atmosphere of an animation instead of the actualy aniamtion for once. Unlike my last project where i had very minamilist backgrounds and slightly more complex characters this time round i have done the opposite. Has it be fun? I would upload them now but i cant really be bothered.

After effects

I used after effects for more or less the first time. It actually helped my dull vector based backgrounds look less shit. After some little tinkering i used a few lighting and smokey effects to give the scene a little bit more depth. Take a peek at my little test.

Dull

Today was sunny and he fact i had to do more work was extremely dull. With being at my wonderful Grainger Games job the day before now meant that i had lost a day of doing real work. Trying to once again get motivated on a sunny day was difficult. I tried to paint a background using Vectors and flash and after realsing i have about as much skill with photoshop as i do with football i decided to use vectors. All the backgrounds have been drawn out now so i'm going to try and get them all coloured and correctly layered hopefully by the end of this week. Which would give me five weeks to do the animation itself. Shouldnt be to bad as there isn't a lot of it. I'm also going to probably have to do all the appropriate voice work by myself which is crap. Fucking actors.

Backgrounds Galore

Today i spent the whole of today drawing backgrounds in flash. Here are some of them. There a bit wonky, but i'll tidy it up later. I'll try
and get them coloured as quickly as posibble in the ol photoshop. Bit of a chnage from using the horibble vectors in flash.
