12-Step Breakdown


of:


A long overdue breakdown, now with an updated format that can handle animation!

You may have to roll the mouse around the middle area or go back a step if you don't see any motion. The format's still a little buggy.

Other than that, it should work just fine. If not, let me know so I can troubleshoot.


QUICK NOTES:

Click in the center area for commentary.

Click on the left or right sides of the window to go forward or back.

That's all. Enjoy.

Man from one animator to another congrats on using different methods to animate, seems like a lot of process for one person, but it's like you were saying, whilst you were doing this you were kinda experimenting. I've done both traditional and CG, but my fave part of animation is looking at the roughs of a decent sequence, definitely roughs have way more expression and lose quite a lot of it in in the cleanup process. I'll just share some of my faves, Glenn Keane on the final scene of beauty and the best roughs and Tarzan tree surfing roughs. Oh and this scene form rescuers down under you won't regret watching these you'll be inspired forever. [link]

Oh, yes! I'm HIGHLY aware of Glen Keane's work. :nod:
He most certainly won't be forgotten in my book.

The quality of work he's done (and continues to do) is plain out amazing. Especially the animation in Tarzan.

I don't feel my roughs lose much because they aren't much to look at in the first place. :D That's due to working with and getting used to a new medium, though.

Thanks for taking the time to give this bit of animation a good watch. I definitely appreciate it. :XD:

Would definitely love to hear more about the film fx steps.

The blink addition was all via redrawn eye areas? Or is there some sort of object warping? Sorry if I'm not using accurate terms, I'm no animation expert.

thatLD Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Yep. Good eye! :nod:

I drew three separate frames for the eye bat with the intention to warp them in After Effects, but it didn't turn out the way I expected.

The amount of actual warp there is very subtle. The drawn frames are doing all the work.

Alright. I'll mark you down for a film fx breakdown. Hopefully there's more requests. :D

Thanks for going through this breakdown and asking questions. :)
