With so much visual noise around us, how do we stay true to what matters to us? A Manifesto can help us realign our personal values with our business values. I finally took the time to craft one.
My character Linda is finally prepped and ready for rigging in AfterEffects using DUIK.
It’s possible and in fact quite simple to make faux 3D satellites in AfterEffects. If you know how. This piece of animation is inspired by the vastness of space and the idea of being in an orbit.
What better way to cheer oneself up than push some paint around the screen. Preparing graphics for the next part of the piece turned out to be fun and quite therapeutic. Animated texture – dancing loops – makes the text interesting by itself. Beware, your eyes can get all loopy!
I animated the reveal of STAY using flying blobs, the reveal technique from Evan Adams and generated with Trapcode Particular particles. Hopefully the amount of manual labour and patience it took will pay off and result in a visually interesting motion.
I am done with the animation in Adobe Animate and wonder how to go around colouring it.
I keep working on a little cel animation project in Adobe Animate and learn the advantages and disadvantages of animating “straight ahead”.
My first attempt at cel animation in Adobe Animate.
Many cups of coffee and hours of podcasts later I am finally done with the primary splatter for my letter morph. It’s time to move to other fun details. In the process I came up with a rather cool reveal for “STAY”. It’s gonna be very COOL!
Working on details for so long makes me lose some of the motivation but I making my way through the splatter. One more letter is done! I find my fire in planning on how to bring “STAY” on stage.
