I had to share this new release from the Blender Foundation and Project Gooseberry. I love what they’ve created here.
I had committed to this frog and princess concept early on, but wasn’t sure if I’d animate in 3d or 2d. I didn’t have a rigged 3d frog model, nor had I ever hand-drawn one. So really, the odds were stacked against me and I spent, as is my habit, the first 7 days of the month in pre-production, plus an extra 6 days of procrastination (also habit) just trying to figure it all out.
My concept for the May 2015 11Second Club is going to be my most challenging yet. The audio clip is a fairly restrained dialogue between man and woman – him saying he’s right, her dutifully casting doubt. I like the audio quite a bit and within 24 hours of hearing it, had a decent concept in mind.
It’s a terrible thing trying to win an animation contest while battling a mini-addiction to Minecraft. The bad news is, I didn’t come in first place. The good news is I have more gold ingots than I know what to do with! 🙂
Monday’s are so terrible anyway. I didn’t need anything else ruining it for me. Just Monday being Monday is usually bad enough.
