Animation Revisions DONE

I finally finished all the animation and scene revisions that my teachers and peers suggest and edited the film back together. This has taken me about 2 months but I feel that the film has improved exponentially from it. Honestly now if I wanted to I could turn the short into a real film festival. Granted, it would have to be a festival that praised films with inconsistent ugly backgrounds and no sound but a festival none the less! Now I’m finally working on the fun stuff. THE BACKGROUNDS and such. I’m currently doing layout sketches for each scene so I can have something solid to go off when I start digital painting. I’m also exploring some new fun shapes to depict the icebergs and rocks in the cave to give it a bit more pizaaas (I guess that’s how you spell it). I have a few of my rough personal sketches up in this post and I’ll have all the clean layouts before the end of the month. Thanks for checking out another installment of “The Wishing Fountain Blog” dum dum duuum.

Thumbnail to Roughdraft

This is a quick little post. I just wanted to show you guys the thumbnail of scene f_upshot and its final rough. Its amazing how useful those little thumbnail doodles are. I remember turning in assignments back in grade school with doodles all over the sides and back. My teachers would usually scold me for it but I’m glad its finally paying off for something now.

S12 Before and After Anim Revisons

So you caught me. Once again its been a little while since my last blog post but don’t think I haven’t been working. I’ve just been putting my efforts into animation and scene fixes that weren’t too easy to show off…until now! While showering I had an epiphany: why not make a before and after videos of the scenes I’ve been working on? This way you can clearly see how poor the animation was before it was spruced to cinematic gold. In this particular scene the man has just defeated the red monster and is now picking up the monster’s remains (which has taken the form of a golden coin). There will be a scene added to the middle of this scene to show the mans confident reaction to acquiring the monster coin but for now just see that the new scene has much more solid animation. Expect to see more “Before and After” videos shortly and thanks for keeping posted to my posts.
