Yes, I actually do something other than just lurking!
For the last week, I've been working on a simple 3D character - about the level you'd see in a current-generation console game.
Tonight, I finished setting him up for animation. There isn't much movement in this video, but every joint in his body is moving. Properly.
Now, to add more animations. And clothing.
ETA: I've gotten two additional animations done. He can now walk and run (even if the latter still needs work.) See them here.
So. I've been completely immersed in the wonderfully crazy and work-driven world of art school. So much so that I've found very few chances to write anything. I have, however, been churning out a great deal of art-type work. Figured I'd post some links to it, now that I'm finally starting to get my documentation of it online. More links will presumably follow as I upload more stuff.
The Green in Black and White
Primarily digital, though images were originally derived from a camera obscura.
An animation using iStop Motion.
My second animation, again using iStop Motion.
String and Yarn
My final animation, using iStop Motion and iMovie. It's a combination of real-time footage and stop motion animation.
Made from cardboard and skinned with photographic images of my hand printed on regular paper.
A laptop, again made from cardboard, and skinned with images of a dictionary, again on regular paper.
And that's it for now. I have other projects I've done, but they're not online yet. So I must needs go eat, and then away! Away, to Art History, to learn of old things that are sometimes pretty to gaze upon!
Note: Hawky/Cathlin's not had more than four hours of sleep a night since she came to this strange new land in late August. It just doesn't get any more comprehensible than this, anymore, folks.
"Remember, remember, the fifth of November . . ." We're five days in, supposed to be at nearly 8K words. How's everyone doing? Thought I'd post a brief survey-ish thing about it, just to get everyone talking (again, to keep the community from dying). There's another one up in my journal, for those that have me friended, but this is different, so! Onto the survey!
1. What's your wordcount at? If you're ahead, why? If you're behind, same question.
2. Is this your first year doing NaNoWriMo? If it is, hurray! How'd you find out? If it's not, how many years previous have you done it? Have you won before?
3. So what are you writing about, anyway? Show an excerpt (if you feel like it).
4. Who's your favourite character, so far?
5. Do you think your plot is going to have any huge twists? (I.E. characters being killed off that you didn't think you would, romances developing that you didn't see happening.)
6. Do you think you'll finish?
7. Finally, how goes it? Are you enjoying writing? :)
( My answers, cut to keep from getting cluttered.Collapse )
I don't know how many of you are aware of this, but the time for NaNoWriMo is drawing near!
For anyone that's never heard of it, NaNoWriMo (or National Novel Writing Month) is a month-long undertaking—basically, during the month of November, your goal is to write a 175-page (50,000 word) "novel." Said novel can be about whatever you want it to be; I've even seen some people go so far as to create story collections for it—just whatever floats your boat. The only rule is that you can't use something that you've already started—no fair picking up something that you've already written half of, typing it up, and using it as your novel. :P
I dunno how many are interested in participating, but I've done it before (never completed it), and it's fun, if you can make the time for it, and an interesting writing exercise.
P.S.—Any new people (I think I saw a couple in the userinfo that I don't recognise) want to introduce themselves? I promise I won't bite. :)
+Comments are nice
Well... here is more art of mine. It's something I'm real proud of... go behind this fake cut for it: Click it
Featuring: The Celebration Of The End Of Exams For This Week.
I got home and had to release stress into this rough recording of 'Jump' by The Faders. It's not perfect, but it's high energy and I had fun wailing into the microphone.
I come in sharply at the start =/
Line art I did last night in PS using a photo of self. Follow the fake cut.
Any and all sorts of comments are welcome, here or on dA.
