Flash Tutorials; Lip Sync Animation

The Rough Animation is done for the Lip Sync with Characters, It may be a bit fast but I'll be coming back to this eventually when I have more time but this is considered as the final piece. When I do come back to it I'll add color, better lining, and possibly a background, I just wanted to get this out of the way so I can move on to other things.

I would upload on Vimeo but the Processing and all that is literal garbage and takes forever.

Animation ShowReel

First of I have to apologize for their being no Life Drawing animation or Stubborn Triangle animation in this reel. The fact is, a couple of weeks ago my computer crashed and I had to take it to the repairs, now they told me that none of my files were gone and that's true but recently I have found out that not all the files made it out and some were gone forever including the ones above. so I'm hoping that the files are at Uni and I can make a new reel later the same day but that will go pass the deadline, so instead of posting nothing I'm going to post the reel with the files that were saved and thankfully a lot was recovered. so here it is.

Fantastic Voyage; 2D Animatic Part 1, The Skin Waste Land. (Mute)

Animatic for the first act.

Just quick and simple just to get the camera proportions and where things will be.

there is some transitions effects that i wanted to add like a fade in for the cut to the cut being mended but Photoshop doesn't allow it, if it does I haven't found it.

After the cut has been formed to create a giant chasm, the B-cells are the first to the scene acting as guards and scouts protecting the cut while the Skin Cells work to mend the cut. Two B-Cells are ordered to scout the perimeter for any Bacteria activity only to be hunted themselves.

This part will show how B-Cells are infected by Bacteria and how they infiltrate the skin.

Rendered out of PhotoShop.

Maya; Alpha Testing, Grass/Hair Follicles

Considering that I want the small hairs that is on our skin to play the part of grass I decided to try out the Alpha maps and such.
Still a ways off but I want to be able to make a field of some sort for the bacteria and B cells to run across so I';m going to have to play with the Air Fields or some other Field that can Generate a wind effect to have them sway in the wind.



These are just tests to see if the alpha works, so the color here that I made is just random to see results. hopefully I can get versions where there effected by wind, if not then I have to spend some time with the old Keying tool.
