moonboy walk cycle

why do i decide to do everything at midnight idk, heres another rough sequence i did , probly has a ton of mistakes in it but atleast im keeping the blog updated ;)


Motivation got!

Idk it hit me after doing some doodles i started on working on a scene for Sue, Still just keys and it was so much fun to do! :)


new stuffs

still rigging up Shi, trying to make the perfect symbols to make it easier to animate, mean time here is a shape challenge i did where you had to contain the face within the given shape, along with some more moonboy sketches :)



Sorry for the lack of updates, way too tied after this week's clean up assesment and closing shift at the subway, but i did a quick sketch if that counts for something lol, i promise ill work on more scenes soon! Here's a quicksletch of Slug from one of my favourite bands, Atmosphere


bus stop boxer animated

messing around with lypsinc, had some fun with it too ! Song - bus stop boxer by the Eels

so to share my annoyance here
(click on the image)

87 shots to go
also i was looking at a forum thread commenting negatively on the characters.  Sorry, i'm not changing the character designs, it's my  cartoon and i'm sticking with them, i dont plan on spending another 4-6 weeks (after finishing uni and work) to be reworking designs at midnight. I'd much rather be animating at midnight!
till the next post  :P Probly tommorow


jeremy and scene test 1

ok im officially renaming Jimmy to Jeremy as i messed up in the script and now ive got the audio with the board and theres no going back.(well there is im just too tired to do so!)

I was up till 4 in the morning breaking apart this thing into 87 shots to make it easier on myself... yeah... lol

heres my first test shot with the only character model i actually rigged up, took me 30 minutes but i wanted to show some animation on this blog finally! I dont know if anyone is even reading these posts but if you are thanks so much for taking an intrest in this! Expect more shots soon

Because I've got school tomorrow followed by work and insomnia's got me here's another turnaround i did just now, the dad will be there from the chest up so i thought i'd save some time by just designing the top half. SO THERE HAH. Zzzzzzzzzzzz


background test

Trying to do a simple vector style for the background



storyboarding's going great, i'll be finished on monday! :D



but im still missing voices and its getting frustrating
here are some panels

alsosaw the ROOM midnight showing.... MEANWHILE IN SAN FRANCISCO!!! Oh man there were probably a couple of thousand spoons thrown at the screen during it.
Made this afterwords XD


looking for musician for cartoon

Oh man it's 2 am, after a full day shift making sandwiches i cant believe I've still got the energy for this... BUT ITS SO GONNA BE WORTH IT
Ok so here's the deal,
I"ve now got 99.9% of the lines(5 lines need to be redone and are being redone) Doing the storyboard now, ive started compiling the voices together to make the scenes
BUT I now forgot I need music too! If any musician is willing to spend a bit of time to do some music for an indie cartoon i'm trying to pitch that would be awesome!!!
I'm looking for 2-3 tracks i can loop with a unique feel about them Ill explain to the person that's interested.
They will be background music to the dialogue(apart from a short intro-credit track)
but its just as important as every other part of this cartoon! So if you'd like to help out to do 1-2 little ambient (and unique) and 1 AWESOME short intro track for SueShi, the thing I've been working on for the last.....long... holyshitlong... while! Then please email me at designwaffle@gmail.com with just a couple of examples of stuff you've done and I'll tell ya exactly what I'm looking for. 
Thanks so much!
