Animation Workshop- Hand drawn animation

I dont want to start this post by ranting, but it has to, about the useless post services that this country offers, 1st from chromacolour, in sending my order after I ordered 2 weeks ago, nice one. 2nd by the post, yes guess, I havent received the paper yet. and what is even funnier is that despite me phoning to the UK Mail to rearrange a redelivery, and the woman saying yes tomorrow will be there, it wasnt even supposed to go on the van, so another day wasted.... I can't believe how much you pay for this services and they just, excuse my expression, a piece of sh**.

Although, I didnt get the paper I managed to do my hand- drawn animation, or at least 4 letters out of 5, out of the layout pad from the Uni's shop. thanks Jackie for pointing me that.

So here's the animation:

Radio, Universe, Banana, Elephant.

Hey Rubes - you've had a terrible night, a crappy day, and your mood is not good... I know this must be nearly killing you because you want to do well and get on with your animation; get on with the essay, get ahead where you can, do the timeline, feel constructive - and try not to stress. Everything will work itself out. Worry not. :-)

Ruben Alexandre said...

thank you,Phil.
I right that what I am going to do... get some research for the essay and continue the timeline.

Hey Ruben, sucks man can't believe they could mess up a simple delivery so bad.

To give you a heads up on the animation workshop today, we animated a Rubber Ball, a Ping Pong Ball and a Bowling Ball. The challenge being in conveying a convincing movement of the respectful ball i.e. bowling ball heavy, no bounce etc. So I think you may need to get those done at some point. I will be uploading mine shortly so you can check it out for further examples.

Other than that, there are no other separate animation tasks required for next week. Except that we must be prepared with the story, character design and storyboard in mind with our current projects to discuss/work with next Friday.

Hope this clears things for you, will probs speak to you on Monday as well :)
