Stopping my animation career going down the toilet

video

To get my animation skills up to scratch, I need a lot of practise. So I'm going to use my character "Lard" for a series of painful animation related experiments. I'm going to start with basic movements and cycles and slowly work my way up.

AfterEffects 3D test

I've started a mad attempt to develop an interesting, dynamic opening sequence for my final film next year, and so far it's not going well... But I'll keep trying!

Time wasting - Part 4

The main structure of the book follows an ongoing business meeting, between the different characters. The presentation giving by Kreski himself, is based on a super hero called "Captain moose." The presentation of course, is never resolved.
Thats it so far.

Time wasting - Part 3

... The narrative is a bit all over the place. At any time you will be introduced to various characters and events. Time and space ill-logically flow in random unpredictable patterns.

Time wasting - Part 2

Here are the first two pages. It's impossable to read like
this so I'll give a brief synopsis of what happens...

Basically the story is a murder mystery that follows a group of various characters.

The main guy, Kreski, Is based loosely on a greasy guy who I sometimes see on the bus in the afternoons. Other characters that feature in the story include a mexican (The victim), Mr kite (who's just a bit strange), Robert Young (Who is always angry about something), and of course Kreski's disabled wife (Who doesn't have a head.)


Time wasting - part 1

My assessment is coming up soon...
So I decided to start writing a graphic novel.
