As construction material, I really like cardboard. From time to time I get the drive to immediately start tinkering around with it. Yesterday I constructed this gigantic mask and a huge smartphone as props for a selfie. Can’t wait to think of other ways to put them to use.
Guys, I’ve rediscovered Photoshop’s animation tool. Now, using video layers and onion-skinning is way more confortable to animate frame by frame. I’m not really sure what it’s gonna be in the end, but from time to time it’s fun drawing some weird objects and making them come alive.
I’ve bought some books for inspirational purposes. I highly recommend both of them.
1.) The Animator’s Survival Kit – by Richard Williams
Wow, everything you need to know about walk-cycles and character movement itself.
Hopefully, I’ll find the time to experiment a little during the upcoming holidays. Although I don‘t think I’ll ever really master this unique type of art.
2.) Cartoon Modern – by Amid Amid
This one is about style and design in fifties animation. Man, I love these artsy-fartsy cartoon drawings from back in the days.
After months of busy work in my spare-time, my brand new website is finally online. It’s wider, greener, more comfortable to manage and responsive. Let’s go to the next level of mobile future.
