Man gets in car - animation doodling

video

Having learned animation through working in the industry, I’m used to focusing on results. I decided to break away from that and try some “animation doodles” - just like I doodle on a piece of paper in meetings, where I don’t care what’s coming out, and just enjoy the ride!

Strangeness. I tried in FF and in IE and it worked well on both. I'll see if others have similar problems. Care to try again and let me know?

Cute!
I like the looseness..

I'd change the rhythm of the walk a bit (so that it varies..) and also stretch the brkdn of the getting in to the car and make it a bit snappier.

* Couldn't see it in Google Reader, but it works in the blog (FF)

I agree Nir. There's much to be fixed here if it's going to be good... The whole point of the exercise though, was not to try and make it good, but to just go ahead and let it flow, see what comes out - just like you do when you doodle while talking on the phone. I have to say it was very liberating... :-)

I really like your stuffs, first time comment. Works in Safari. What program you use to draw and animate?

April said...

Cuuute!! Why the blank frames at the end though?

Doron Meir said...

Alex: Thanks dude!
April: blank frames are due to stupidity. :)
Ivanator: thanks mate - nice blog you got! I used TV paint. Check it out, it's an awesome classic animation program.

Ha! very cool. Nice and simple. I kinda wanna see the car driving off, zigzagging to the horizon :)
