Fooling around with computer animation.

I’ve spent the last couple of days fooling around with computer animation….this post would have actually been up last week but there’s been a lot of annoying hindrances to embedding the video, so I’m just giving up and posting an image and a direct link to the animation on Photobucket.

Boing Boing posted an article last week a kid out in the midwest who taught himself at 16 how to do animation with a lot of free tools on the internet.  I had some spare time so I started fooling around with tools and tutorials he reccommended.  It’s not as difficult as you might think…

If you notice, that’s an exterior shot of the bar I built in Sketchup.  Sometime this week I’m going to see if I can set up a few animated characters in the bar having a beer or two.

And yes, I know this doesn’t have a lot to do with sketching.

Another Bruce Timm-esque doodle.

Went to New York over the weekend…was hoping to do some sketching of building and street scenes, but the one opportunity I got was shamelessly squandered playing Phantom Hourglass on the DS at a coffeeshop.

I drew the below this morning while drinking my first cup of coffee of the day.
