Tiny cupcakes are awesome

…screening at animation festivals ain’t bad either! At last count: Melbourne International Animation Festival, Blue Plum Animation Festival, AniMazing Spotlight (non-selective, but Rattie got 15 seconds of fame on their Studio Clip Reel made up to present to their contacts in the LA animation scene!)

[and to be honest, I’m getting quite tired of deleting spam, so this blog may just fizzle out quietly. I can also be found on Twitter @liebestrauma dribbling random one-liners]

Rough layout - it’s in a greenhouse.

WiP 11 Second Club April 2012

April 8th, 2012 by rach3

Fingers crossed I actually complete this and have a half-decent showreel piece. It’s quite a complicated, subtle-ish acting piece, which is new to me…but the most difficult scene I’ve ever done to date is still in “Rats” with everyone doing slightly different things. Yep. Don’t put seven moving characters in a scene.

Animatic/blocking version 2.0: I’m still working on refining the timing and the actions on the Mrs Crawley character.

Sincere

November 25th, 2011 by rach3

Short exercise, following a Jason Ryan tutorial, trying my hand at animating speech for the first time. Unfortunately, the sound quality is as good as it gets…I even reassembled it in After Effects because Flash does even weirder things to sound.

life drawing

November 20th, 2011 by rach3

First half-decent drawing since submitting my student film. Pastel pencil on bond paper. It felt good to get my hands dirty after spending 2 months drawing with a slick plastic nib on a slick plastic surface (even with a piece of paper taped to the Wacom). I need to get my drawing mojo back….

One year ago tomorrow, I met Glen Keane, very briefly, at a book signing. He asked if I was involved in animation (I had a sketchbook in hand), and I said I would love to be. So here I am, the day after the end of year screening, with a film under my belt….and the GlenArt award for character animation.

More later, when I’m a little more coherent.

Procrastination in Ink and Photoshop

September 3rd, 2011 by rach3

Sitting in a cafe with a friend, both of us procrastinating. I made a tiny ink sketch (roughly 3 by 2 inches), came home, chucked it in Photoshop and noodled it half to death.
