Man, I haven't been here in a while. As soon as all these other experienced animators started showing up and helping other people out I kind of disappeared, sorry about that. I mainly started posting here again way back last year because it felt like there weren't that many people providing really good help, and now there are SO MANY :D
Anyways, small update: I am no longer working at Atomic Cartoons, and I'm now back at school in Capilano in Vancouver for animation. Great school. Wonderful school.
Here's one of the things I've been working on while at Capilano. It was done on TV Paint Pro in about 8 hours. We had two days to make it animate 3 actions, and I was unable to work on the first day. My actions were picking up a bottle from a table, swinging a golf club, and picking up a heavy weight.
My personal goal in this animation was to push each pose and movement as far as I could without actually breaking the movement. If you pause it every now and then you'll see a random pose that you couldn't possibly perform, but that adds to the movement quite nicely (if i do say so myself).
Anyways, i'll try to be a bit more active here, posting my three paragraph long explanations of why you should use the brush tool instead of the line tool or my five paragraph spiels about the beauty of animation. Expect to see me around here more!
And if i'm not around here more, blame school. It's always school.
