Old Habits Die Hard...
So it turns out the last piece of traditional 2D animation I did was about one and a half years ago..... hmm....that really isn't good! Even though i've been working ON/IN traditional animation as an assistant, it's not the same thing, and in fact it actually kind of hindered me with this! I told myself before I started, "C'mon now Rossi, remember, you gotta work rough - keep it loose", and after a few frames in i'm already tying down stuff! So it seems this is my habit when i'm sat in front of a lightbox and it's one I've really gotta shake off If I'm going to improve my animation...
I know some animators who do animate clean, and they do great stuff, but it's not the way I want to do it :/
(Don't forget to FULLSCREEN!)
That said, I'm happy with how it turned out all things considered. I think my only gripe is I should have slowed things down in places.
UPDATE: I changed the timing slightly and gave a bit more room to breathe during the withdrawal section, and before she kicks the door shut for a bit more anticipation. I'm not going to upload it, I'll just put it in the reel.
On another note, who's excited about Titeuf?!
You know.... Titeuf......the little Fren...... Oh never mind!
I'm excited :) As far as I know it's the first 2D film in to be shown in 3D, and though I was dubious at first, I am intrigued to see the pop-up book effect!
If anyone was getting used to me posting animation tests then I'm sorry to say that I probably won't be posting anymore for a while (aside from posting a 2011 Showreel). My next endeavour is to get acquainted with After Effects....... i'll let you know how that goes :)
