Re: Richard Williams - Animation MasterClass animated line up

That's the nice thing in Mirage (and other digital animation software): it's so easy to have different characters each with its own cycle length and walking speed in one scene. I watched that trailer and couldn't help but to think: I don't see much difference any more between a perfectly executed "W...

Re: Consistency of Image Over Time

I remember that one of my first films completey hand-drawn featured a character about 2 cm high in the beginning of the film, then shrinking down to less than 1 cm over time ... It is a common mistake that everyone has to overcome. Others already mentioned several tricks to keep size and volume of c...

Re: Lehmann Pencil Test

Oh, but they are even more flooded now with thoughtful deep films from animation students - or that's what they think they made.

Re: Lehmann Pencil Test

Happens to me as well. This is plain normal. When I worked at a studio, situations like this could not happen because all of your work was under permanent observation by everyone. Sometimes I miss this immediate feedback.

Re: Lehmann Pencil Test

May I suggest some things? I haven't read the story, but I know offices (better than I ever wanted). The room doesn't need to be small in order to turn down everyone's mood. There are certain circumstances which make people feel uncomfortable in the same room. Some of those are: - have to sit with t...

Re: Lehmann Pencil Test

I could DL the WLV and play it, although it stopped several times without reason.

Overall nice effect. What's the jumpcut at 00:47 going to be?

Re: a finished scene [wip]

It's all in one layer ... but there are non-moving parts like the front leg which are just traced. I know that she doesn't work! I started with this scene exactly 2 years ago when I just got Mirage freshly installed. I cleaned and coloured it yesterday just for practice and colour testing. The title...

More testing. http://www.enigmation.de/girl1.html (330 k) again for colour combination, then for colouring stubby hair (OK). Besides the obvious mistakes in the body proportions I noticed that the line quality was not consistent. The black lines I did directly in the same drawing and level with the ...

Re: a finished scene [wip]

Yes, strobing can be a problem - of course I try to avoid working on one's wherever I could. But I noticed that in a lot of japanese animation nobody cares about that - it really is a cultural thing. For now I will leave it as it is, I plan to finish some more scenes which will be part of my next de...

Re: a finished scene [wip]

Klaus: didn't I show you? This is the big one, the one still without a script, just with a truckload full of sketches ... Of course you're right that I care a lot about technical stuff instead of just writing down a story. But it's not that I walk around in circles for days, pondering about how fast...

a finished scene [wip]

http://www.enigmation.de/hauswalkf.html (1,6 MB) This one is just another test for "the big project". I wanted to test for colours (seems to work), line quality (drawn on two's to keep line width consistent), and of course the whole character. I think I keep the eyes like this: a black spot with ju...

Re: Wondering about animation styles

There's a book about this, "Art in Motion: Animation Aesthetics" by Maureen Furniss http://www.johnlibbey.com/books_detail.php?ID=3&area=mus (Review by Giannalberto Bendazzi here: http://www.awn.com/mag/issue3.11/3.11pages/bendazzimotion.php3 ) which gives a nearly complete overview about all questi...

Re: Leopold Lehmann

OK, here's some examples of papers. The first one is from a small book printed in 1939, I just show you the exlibris on the book end paper: http://www.slowtiger.de/examples/papier2.jpg Note how the ink bleeds? This is a structured paper, a bit like Ingres. The second is from "Bilderatlas zur Einführ...
