Day 54- There’s Always a Bigger Fish (Animation)

I did like six characters for this post and took almost the whole day to create them, animate and add music and sound effects. The characters were done in in Adobe Illustrator and I animated everything in Blender.

Day 39- Running Rabbit (with time-lapse)

Running Rabbit

Today, I decided to record my daily cartoon character, which ended up being a running rabbit… I know, creative name for the win!
So yeah, this is just a time-lapse of me drawing a running rabbit in Adobe Illustrator.

Day 27- Martin Luther King

Martin Luther King Portrait-01

I created a portrait of Martin Luther King via Adobe Illustrator by applying a filter to a photo of King, tracing and adjusting the lines with the pencil tool and filling the shapes with darker and darker shades of grey.

I then exported each layer into an image, imported them back into blender as separate planes, animated the camera and planes, composited some particles with defocus and motion blur and, of course, exported the result into Vimeo.

There were a few mistakes that I might have avoided, such as, you may notice as the particles move by, they might blink slightly. That is a result of the defocus filter, and the threshold setting, which is probably too low. And there is also the part when the camera comes close to the images, there is a weird blur that happens around the image. This is caused also because of the defocus filter, since the images are on planes which I have made the rest transparent, the defocus filter still registers the transparent part of the plane and defocuses it as well. Thus blurring everything behind it. Oh well.

Quakecraft

Had A bit of an ear ache this morning and had to stay up… playing Quakecraft. Haven’t played Quakecraft in a while but decided to give it a go again… played for four hours straight. I only recorded like three or four games, but I was able to make this montage thing in a couple hours. Anyway, thanks to all the awesome players who looked cool while I shot them and played even though I was utterly dominating. Enjoy!

Airsoft

A two minute video on airsoft and video games (fps). Id’e like to thank all the players and especially the airsoft beebees for their dedication to flying out of muzzles, getting shaken around in the gun clips and also for the time my dog thought they looked like good eating (we found those a while after it had happened). The frame rate and general screen quality of the airsoft shots aren’t perfect, but hopefully soon I will be able to make a more dedicated video with a better Gopro. Enjoy!
