Bacon Sniff Animation by moonmystique Bacon Sniff Animation by moonmystique
Piece that I animated of my group's 3rd year group film project. Don't know when the whole thing'll go online so I'll post a few of my parts.

[link]

I did the animation and the bg.
Animated and cleaned up on paper, coloured in Flipbook and composited in After Effects.

I know there's problems with it, and it was something I ended up animating in one night cause I redid what I had to begin with which I wasn't satisfied with, and we were on a really tight schedule, but we got it done on time.

Compositing credit goes to my group cause I was stuck doing my cleanup while they started putting it together @_@

Really interesting!
Can I ask you which software do you use to animate?
I'm looking for something like this, and photoshop as an animation tool it's a bit painful. I'm still waiting for a good animation plug in

This was animated and cleaned-up right on paper, scanned and then coloured in Flipbook.

Thank you very much!
For doing all this in one night I must say that you did a very good job. Poor you, you must have remained exhausted after this much work in such a short amount of time.

I'm currently trying FLipbook and seems to be a wonderful tool for coloring. This is going to save me lots of time!

May I ask you, more precisely, for the shadows?

The shadows in your clip look quite smooth (like if a Gaussian blur was applied over them) .
Until now, I have always animated my shadows in Photoshop or Flash in a different layer. This procedure is difficult and slow, because the most frequent problem is that it's very easy to lose control of the shadow (even using a clipping mask) and it gets to "Vibrate" when you test the animation, you know what I mean.
But your shadow looks perfect and not vibrating at all.

Can you point me the procedure, please?

The shadows and two-tones were a cheat for this film. They were put on in After Effects by duplicating the animation level and then changing the colour, angle and softness. In some cases it works perfectly, and in others it might look a little weird, but since it was just a short student film and got rushed at the end, I think it works pretty good 8)

Do you have any animation online? I like seeing peoples' stuff :B

Actually I have many animation examples and tests. But still need to put them all together and then upload the result.
Here you are a couple of tablet tests

Those are no big things.
Now I'm investigating for new techniques to do my animated series online. EP01 is already released, and you can see it here

THe characters I need to animate are ghosts (from Casper, to be more specific), and they are quite long to do in photoshop. That's why I'm investigating new ways of getting them done.

Here you are a perfect example (one of the series official character sheets)

DO you think that I can animate this kind of character using your shading method?
(I hope I'm not bothering you with all this stuff, I love to talk about technical stuff with colleges animators)

Cool stuff 8)
And it's no bother at all. The thing with that kind of shading is that it's the exact same silhouette as your animation so it might look funny, but for example you might be able to pull it off with a character like Casper, because his shapes are really simple. It could also look like back lighting though, since you would be darkening the part that is closest to us. Unless there's a way to invert the selection and use that as the shading, but I'm really not that experienced with After Effects to say if you can do that. I guess the best thing to do would be to get a free trial version and play around with it and find tutorials or help features that might show you all the tools and what you can do with them.
Sorry I can't help anymore than that :/

Artists are always their own pickiest critiques! :p

This is fantastic! I love your animation style - so fluid and alive! I especially like the subtly of his look from the sky to the bacon! It was slow, and had a GREAT settle in!

I really enjoy how your animation is so fluid that when there are holds, I honestly don't notice! Some animations I have seen really 'hit' the holds, ya know? Not yours!! :D

Truly, animation is a strong point for you! :clap:

How many frames was that and what frame rate were you working on? It looks fabulous either way :D I have to do my final animation film on my own, I'm totally dreading it, haha.

:iconmoonmystique:
moonmystique Featured By Owner May 4, 2009
Thanks =P It was 126 frames, I think. On twos, 24 frames a second. Some parts were on ones, actually.

I have to do a personal film in my final year 8)

I thought your group's was the absolute best for continuity, especially keeping on model! (:

I'm excited and nervous to see how things will unfold, XD;. Just hope the "lose friends" thing is just a myth. -shifty eyes-

:iconmoonmystique:
moonmystique Featured By Owner May 3, 2009
Thank you 8)

The "lose friends" thing can definitely happen. I think it's a matter of how attached people are to the film and how much respect you have for each other. It's a difficult process, really, especially when there's no director and things are decided in a voting order; some people are happy, some are not. That's how it always is, I guess. I think our group had most, if not all, people happy.
But in the end I think you make more friends too, so if you happen to lose a friend, I guess it's because you're seeing them for who they actually are.
but I would expect you to not lose the really good friends (I AM still with Boris, btw =P)
;)
