To finish up with the co-workers, we have Supergirl, who is for the woman who gave me back issue of a comic when I left the company, and a coffee drinking owl for another who I saw wear some owl earrings once.
Really simple animations. But I think they’ll like ’em.
Just a few more gifs for that last job I held. One guy likes squirrels and puzzles and another guy likes comic books. I never asked his favorite character, but Amazing Spider-Man 2 came out this weekend, so Spidey it is.
Did this over in Adobe Flash. Timing is very different than the timeline in PhotoShop. But, gotta learn somehow.
These are a few animations for some former co-workers for when I worked at at a Jesuit library for the blind. One guy really likes the ’66 Batman series so I chibi-fied it for ease and did this.
And the Head of the Organization was an opera singer and sings often in the office, randomly. Also he has a thing for rhinoceros art. So this was done up for him.
The other folks are a little harder to personify as they don’t have spirit animals that they made me aware of. Well one guy likes squirrels, so I’ll do something with that later.
I made this for my friends birthday.
She’s a kick ass drummer and artist. Her energy is always up.
Rough animation, just a few frames, in the tradition of Brad Neely. creator of Adult Swim’s China, IL. Only it’s just Blue Line Roughs, like a basic story board animatic. Drawn in Adobe PhotoShop, imported into iMovie.
Music put to the side for a while, got a gig through my sister where I was asked to a series of animated gifs. I used to make some gifs for fun for some forums, many years back. I used to use PhotoShop and it’s plug in ImageReady. I was worried when I couldn’t find ImageReady in CS 6. But a little google-fu showed me that there’s a timeline window in PhotoShop and it’s functionality is the same as what I was used to. Animating is time consuming, but I’m thinking of doing some in service to the Stunning Beeboy, and make myself more marketable in the process. I have 20 gifs to do for this gig, and I have to refamiliarize myself with what I used to know and learn a bunch of new tricks. So, here go some of my exercises and attempt.
