Today was the day of my presentation of this semester’s work. The project isn’t finished yet. But it will be continued. There are still a lot of problems, though.

Walk cycle studies

posted in: PRO4, Work in Progress | 0

I’ve studied with excitement the effect of a walk cycle on my main character of my project for University (PRO4) in recent days in different variations. For the beginning scene, I’ve chosen a lightweight and free movement – a child who discovers the world with open mind and joy of nature. Below you could see my sketches of this first motion sequence. The look of the final outcome of this animated short changed afterwards. Nevertheless, it was a great experience … more

This video shows the animatic beginnings of my new project. It’s for the fourth semester at the University of Applied Sciences Hagenberg (pro4).

A new semester has started, it’s time to collect inspirations.

ThrowAway title sequence

posted in: PRO3, Work in Progress | 4

The title sequence for ThrowAway is finished. I think the character of the font fits very well with the rotoscoping. I made a frame-by-frame animation of the font which looks like writing. In addition, I have improved the first part, because the quality was not usable, unfortunately. In the review, I have decided to choose jeans and a simple top as the initial clothing. I can easily switch from the top to the dress. Our protagonist wears a yellow dress … more

I finished the color change work of the clothing for our animated short ThrowAway. For 2 weeks, we are working on the rotoscoping. At the beginning, we had problems with the equipment (Wacom tablets) and the synchronization of the brush. But after a while, we get into it. Now I completed 225 frames, that means only 9 seconds, though. Furthermore, I developed a color change of the dancer’s dress. The transition works very well, as the umbrella covering the body … more
