Minor

well,
this is my minor project. It was completely hand drawn, and my first ever animation...
inspired by the looney toons!
I have never had as much fun animating since then. i work as a three d animator and its still not as much fun as a paper pencil work. video
the music was made by the super talented joe hillel! he is a great guy, and the most patient person i know .. also his music is threethousand times better than my animation...
thanks joe..

Naruto Title Song

video
This is one of the opening to The Naruto Shippuden series. so far its also my favorite.

on the first half, ther are some pretty slick editing.
the part where the colors come in waves and change between shots .

the second half of this opening is pure gold.
the skills of the animators are quite apparent the way they animate two intricate characters as well as the camera movement, which is is synched with the movement of the background.
there s a lot of dynamic movement, but at no point is the visual idea lost.

Heroe's Comeback



I've been to some of my friends blogs and apparently.. they do a lot of writing... so maybe there is a rule that blogs need to have some amount of text. so this post has slightly more text than the all the other ones
who knows i might just break the internet, if i don t put text in my blog.. and i don't want to be responsible for that.. so here goes.

I love to watch the opening theme s of anime. They are like animated music videos, and many of them have great animation as well as motion graphics in them, Fantastic editing, And sometimes great music. ... theres a lot to learn from watching just the opening of an anime series.

they seem to spend a lot of time setting up the animation and effect for some sequences.
The above opening is an excellent example. its one of the opening to Naruto.

At some point i really want to animate a mock opening sequence.

RASENGAN!

another one of my anime inspired animations. you d know what the title means if you watch Naruto. video

Crouch

i really regret not having a background in fine arts, because.. animating in two d is really difficult. or maybe its just really difficult for me. And though i am a three d animator, i keep practicing my two d skills. video

Anime

video

what i really like about anime is how effectively they use minimalistic animation. this exrecise is just an attempt to see how little animation is really needed to make convincing movement.

Action character _001

video

at 12 14 a.m this looks fine. i ll have a fresh look at it tommorrow.
at this point i just have the action clear in my head. so the character tempelate is ready. hopefully i ll be able to create an interesting character in to fill in the details.
And ignore the fact that he/she is in the corner of the screen right now.
