Feeble animated colour tests


As I am very new to the 2D animated process I enlisted the help of the lovely Elodie Markwell to assist me with some colour and ink tests for my animation.. Elodie was kind enough to hand ink my pencil frames. These are just a couple of the finished colours (minus the backgrounds, they will be done by my fellow animation student Jacqui Davis.)


 Getting to grips with Harmony animation software.


Elodie doing some much needed inking. Markwell by name Mark well by nature... hahah...ugh.

I am growing in confidence with the technilogical side of the process and with more practice I can't wait to see how everything will be when it is all put together.

More updates coming soon!

Feeble running test

video

I have many tests on the linetesters at uni, this shot was a very quick one so I could sort it at home. I have completed about 4-5 shots so far... But I need to press on! I am starting to feel more confident with the method of 2d tradtional animation. I think it is starting to suit my way of working. I don't have many 2nd year animation students but I have my fellow 3rd years such as Elodie Markwell, Lauren Dorling and Jacqui Davis to lend me a helping hand where needed. 
I am also on with looking for music for my animation. I have found quite a nice jazzy piece which sounds very 1940's/50's cartoon. So this is very good. It is royalty free and I just have to credit Kevin Macleod from http://incompetech.com/
Very useful!

More sneaky peaks on their way soon!

Posters... The search for 2nd years.

After I did my presentation to the 2nd years last Tuesday, I thought I might have had quite a few people wanting to help. I remember being a 2nd year last year and I wanted to help as many 3rd year students as I could in the hopes that I would get credited in more films, thus boosting my experience. The 2nd years this year do not seem to have grasped this... perhaps they are just a bit timid.

Anyway the next plan of action to rectify this is to create posters.




And then here is a bigger version of the doodle I did for the poster... I think it shows me a happy kind person to work for. Lets just hope that reels them in!


Fingers crossed!

Feeble and Clucky Maquettes

Clucky's close up

Chesty Chicken, she has some serious curves going on... as all sexy cartoon love interests should.


This lady takes no crap from anyone!

Dearest Feeble's close up.

Trying for a kiss... I don't think he is going to get one.


But he can keep trying...
