Not necessarily art, but it's something.  Recently, my brother and I decided to do some stop-motion animation tests using techniques from the producers of Robot Chicken.  A while back, StarWars.Com held a question-and-answer session with the producers, so I took the oppertunity to ask about their animation techniques, puppets used, and framerate.  I found that they film at 15 fps "hold two," which they hold poses for two frames.  Going on that and seeing as how my brother and I commonly film at 24-30 fps, we're now employing the "hold two" technique, only we're holding poses for 3-4 frames due to our higher framerate.

One of the many motion tests that were done was with one of my Daleks.  The Dalek was ideal for the motion test as unlike many of our figures, it won't fall over.  So, I set up the shot and animated the Dalek at 30 fps, holding each pose for four frames.  The frames were imported to AfterEffects and after several expiraments, the framerate was risen from 30 fps to 60 fps and a motion blur was added to eliminate the staccato effect.

This 3-second motion test is the result.


Right now, we're mostly doing motion tests to get comfortable with the animation technique and framerate.  If any other animated shorts are to be done, a script needs to be written, which then needs to be storyboarded, then filmed.

I'd say their technique works very well.  That looks awesome.

Nothing too major today, just a model sheet.  My brother needed me to design a mech and make a model sheet of it to model from.



Front and side, with arms omitted.  My brother has the angle sketch.  When he finishes the model, I'll post it.

Love your mech design. Reminds me a bit of the style Akira Toriyama used for his mechs.

My brother wanted something more Battletech than Gundam, something functional.  So, using several Battletech and EXO Squad references, along with suggestions ("Make the front like a Mack truck, but more alien and rounded"), I sketched up an angled design and then drew the model sheet.

Hey, remember that one angel pic I was working on ages ago?  I finally decided to work on it again and I got the wings coloured.  Next up is the cast shadow.

Saying it's beautiful would be an understatement.

My life is currently bears and Jojos and everything is great.

The wings remind me of some kinda bird I can't put my finger on the name of.

I love your coloring so much, you put a lot of heart into it.

Well, me, I'm reminded of the wings of bald-headed eagles, condors and falcons.

The wings were based off of an owl.  As for the markings on the wings...  Those were random, but I think also based off of an owl. XD

Not much today.  Just a random character I still need to write up the backstory for.
