Radial Symmetry

A bit of radial symmetric art featuring a blade/petal like design.  For those of you who do not know what radial symmetry is: It is the condition of having similar parts arranged around a central canvas. As you can see in the design there is the center origin and four identical sections. When rotated everything looks the same at all angles.

This was quite fun to make and I will be producing this on a larger scale in class. Probably in color too. Try not to get to mezmerized by the animation although its quite fun to watch.


Daft Animation WIP 1.0

Instead of posting a final product, I’ve decided to clue you in on the animation progress.  The process of creating the animation will probably take me much longer than originally expected. I’m guessing a month or two work if I want to do a really good job.

So far I’ve managed to do three out of a (re-estimated) 60 frames. This is barely a dent in the massive amount of work that is yet to come. Considering these frames are not even fully complete as the hair needs to be shaded in and the ab outlines need to be detailed. Baby steps I suppose.

Please note that the man is in boxers.  (Obviously). If you can’t handle the PG-13 nature (I suppose) of this animation, then kindly excuse yourself from viewing all posts in the category “Daft Animation”

Attempting the Impossible

Daft Hands, the popular internet video quickly turned into Daft Bodies. And this is where I want to take it to the next level. Daft Animation!

Basically  my plan is to take the Daft Bodies Form and change it into a “Doodle animation” similar to the backflip animation.  This is quite an ambitious project as it will probably take a good hundred frames to do the main movements. Considering I do not  have flash, nor do I have the knowledge of how to work with the flash program… everything will have to be compiled by hand very carefully. Grr, at my lack of an expensive adobe program.

As a result you will see a lack of doodles and other art posts until this project is completed.  Hopefully I can work fast enough get it done within a week to two weeks.  I will still continue to work on side projects though. So never fret, you’ll still get at least some dose of Jesse Talks Doodle/General art.

For now enjoy the video that I’ll be modeling the animation after:

Please ignore the undies.  That’s not the concept of this post. It’s more for a visual on the movement of the human body and how it will translate into animation.

It’s a Backflip

This is the first time that I’ve tried to create an animation.  Although that was mainly an excuse in case you think it’s utter crap.  I got a bit lazy at the end, as you can probably tell. Animation is  hard work >.<! I give alot of credit to those folks at disney who work in their animation department.  Of course, they are getting paid to that… I suppose thats a nift incentive to keep working.

Anyway this animation was the combined effort of three programs. Yay for my lack of high tech programs. At least the small freeware ones get the job done.

If you’re planning to use this animation please give credit where credit is due. No matter how cruddy the ending turned out.

My Shiny Teeth Animation

Eight hours of listening to an insanely catchy tune starts making you a bit crazy. Anyway I’ve completed a project that I’ve been working on for months… little by little. It’s basically a rough animation comprised of roughly 190 images promoting dental hygiene. Doesn’t sound to exciting but just watch the video. Hopefully it will make you smile. (For those who don’t know who sings this it’s: My Shiny Teeth and Me, Chip Skylark)

I’ll be back to doing regular videos over the next few weeks. I have no plans to devote so much time to animation this summer. I just wanted to finish up on that project that I’ve been putting off for several months. Not saying what video I’ll be doing next though…

Pinkidinki101 has sort of inspired me to look for new artists and feature them on my channel. I think that will be a breath of fresh air. (Yes, I know I’ve been doing quite a lot of Jesse McCartney videos). So if you have any suggestions on someone willing to let me use their voice/videos/pictures on my channel, drop me a comment.
