I am by no means an artist.

By that I mean I'm not an "artist" artist who's talented at drawing, had any formal training or want to pursue a career in art/animation.

My passion has always lied in writing & directing. I don't care about the fame or glory, I just want to tell a story.

But after trying to create short films for several years, I've come to the conclusion that my peers are not as passionate about filmmaking as me. Actors are amateur, locations are limiting, crew are flaky--none of my works can be properly made.

So this is me trying to learn a new skill to create my films without being let down by people who can't contribute.

No money. Time consuming.
Suicide by art.

It brings on many changes..

My first attempt at doing a background, specifically a more urban landscape. Based off this post.Pretty rough. Lot to work on.

I’m a dirty person.

Trying to figure out character design and style for simple blob people that I can use in my animations to practice easily.

Animation Homework #1: The Ball

My first disappointing attempt at the infamous “ball animation” that all beginners are taught and..my ball disappoints. Poor thing couldn’t even make it all the way across the screen, pfft.

But this alone took me probably an hour and a half mainly because I was focusing on the landscape. As disappointing as the ball is, I like how the environment assets turned out (cherry blossoms!).

I call it “After Avengers”. After the events in ‘The Avengers’, what happens to everyone? Hawkeye returns to a quiet desk job, waiting for another chance to bust out the bow and arrow.

Bored. Random sketchings. Ended up doing an image of Phoenix Force Cyclops from Avengers vs X-Men but with a mix of his oldddd classic outfit.

Here is my updated thank you to my first follower enigmatic-eli. Kinda pissed cus I spent a whole hour animating motion so that the reaper goes from one end of the screen to the other, only to find out that tumblr wouldn’t accept the GIF because it was too many frames. FFS.

First follower! Thank you enigmatic-eli!Here’s a sketch for you. Sorry it’s shit and not even animated. I have to go out to a meeting right now so I just blazed a shitty quickie in literally 5minutes. I’ll draw you something better later with animation!

I hate this one.So I wanted to move past the click and drag movement and try some hand waving and…this is what I got. The movement’s not fluid enough and I also dislike the conceptual design of the character."Sally" is supposed to be Keeva’s human pen pal/love interest. I wanted her to look a bit more trendy but instead she wound up looking like a bad !genderswap Winchester. Ughh. This is what I get for trying to freehand. Will have to do some rough sketches from scratch.

"Next stop…Earth."

Keeva can’t really fly but I wanted to do something fun to further practice my animating work. Obviously I’m still nervous to do complex stuff and only stick with small movements. This is partially because I’m still not used to/good at drawing on a tablet yet. But my time has gotten much quicker. Whereas the last post took a little over an hour, this was around 30 minutes.
