Jelly Cube

It squishes! It bounces! It sticks to things!

I will be adding another one to this post just as soon as I get the frames in and all working--this one was a little too short for the needs of the class, so I did two :3

Leaf 02

The big lesson of this one is: be verrrrry verrrry careful and check to make sure that the batch scanner hasn't eaten any of your frames.

I'm missing four, here, which is why there are a couple of really really weird jumps.

Aaaand that wiggle at the end just needs fixing in general.

Guess who's taking an intro to animation claaaaass?

That's right! It's me!

My second basic ball bounce--it's meant to be looping. I was gonna put in blue and orange portals buuuuuut I'll save that for another time.

First ball bounce. Sooooo slooooow. And I think I lost a couple of frames in the middle due to the batch scanner eating them.

Pencil drop!

This line is pretending to be a leaf on the wind but it is moving much too fast--I'll probably do another of these before class on Wednesday.

Long time no post!

Sorry 'bout that. I'm back at school now, though, so I should be writing more frequently in the months to come.

In the interests of spreading the love, though, I've set up an art blog on tumblr: sparkselart.

There's just something so pleasant about the tumblr...thing. It's so soothing. And it's usually easier to upload to from different devices, so that's a big big plus.

A few recent pieces, all done on the new iThing:

Happy new year

I come bearing iThing sketches, for verily I have a new device.

Which is actually what I'm posting from right now, so we'll see if this works.

One of the first ones I did using sketchbook pro...and it shows. Sorry, fancy hobbit!Elrond. 

Started to figure out color mixing with this one. weeeeeeeeeeee. 

This may shock you: but assassin's creed 3 is suuuuper fun times. I am enjoying it a lot. 

Done using Paper, rather than Sketchbook pro. I mentioned it on fb and on tumblr, and I wanted to do so here, but didn't know whether to give it its own post or not: we had to put zena to sleep on the 27th, these were the last sketches I got to do of her while she was alive. 

Paper instead of sketchbook pro again. The toolset is less versatile overall, but there are some things that you can go straight at with paper that you can't with other programs. 

I want to do more interesting colors, so I've been doing sketches like these to try to practice. I'm going to pull these open in photoshop as soon as I get back to my computer, give them a real polish.
