this is a bullshit blog by someone who'd like to remain professional somewhere else.
Icarus flies too close to the sun and burns his wings.
Rotoscope in progress. I’d like to finish some shots I didn’t have time to add, draw more in-betweens, add backgrounds, finish animating other characters and perhaps add some simple colour. And fix the shaky camera… sheesh.
After all that I’ll call it a real ‘demo reel’ piece, but for now it’s good for what it is.
I am not going to elaborate on all the things that went wrong with this. I’m still proud of what I accomplished in 5 days.
The more challenging part was figuring out the wings, since the actor had two, stiff wing-like panels. It was fun, though.
The beings surrounding him are not meant to be human but they’re for now as a place holder for the designs I made. Will add them once I have time to fix this animation.
I can’t wait to have some extra time to finish this.
