Cd cover and Index

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is my CD cover and index(unfinished). I have an older, 60’s styled cover. The image on the front is of one of my favorite musicians, Mayhem. I used a cursive style for the text to mentally contrast with the word “mayhem.” I used the colors red and yellow because they create a soothing feeling because they seem so similar yet a fiery spirit because of the colors themselves.

Flash Characters

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

These are the characters I made with the character creators and drew, some of them I put a lot of thought into making and some I just wanted to look kinda funny. Each of the ponies too longer because I had to edit parts of images to use in the creator and the one that seems like a 3-D model took a long time cause I had to edit size, height, clothes, colors, age, etc.

Portfolio Logo

This is the logo I made for my portfolio for Digital Art And Design: Fundamentals. The symbol is an edited default symbol made to look like it is apart of the background. The entire center is made with contrasting colors but similar filters so everything flows together but its all still clearly different.

My favorite character

One of my favorite characters is Rarity from MLP:FIM. Rarity is a very complex character and you have to think in order to understand her character. Basically, I think understanding Rarity is challenging and that makes it more fun to try and do and it makes her character better overall. Rarity has a strained relationship with her younger sister due to their differences in personalties just like me and my little brother so I feel like I can connect to her too which is important when liking a character.

Little Talks: A 20% Cooler stop motion animation


This is the stop motion animation that our group did. It is a typography based stop motion animation using the song “Little Talks” by Monsters and Men. Ashley helped in the creative process, making a design and helping it come to fruition. Nicole was the creative director and did most of the actually drawing and coloring on the images. Mitchell was the editing and animation manager, he edited the images and organized them into iMovie.

Animation Terminology

Animation – the rapid display of a sequence of images to create an illusion of movement.

Lead (key) animator – oversees a team of animators. This person delegates responsibilities and ensures the successful completion of an animation project.

Character Model – A small object, usually built to scale, that represents in detail another, often larger object.

Marquette – a small scale model.

Rough Animation Drawings – The original, first generation sketch by the animators in creating the movement in a scene.

Key Drawings – the drawings that are essential to animating a character.

Inbetweens – the process of generating intermediate frames between two images to give the appearance that the first image evolves smoothly.

Breakdowns – the middle drawings that serve as the principle transition actions between two keys.


Clean ups – where “clean” versions of the “rough” animation drawings are produced.

Background Drawing – The process of drawing the background for an animation.

Cel – short for celluloid, is a transparent sheet on which objects are drawn or painted for traditional, hand-drawn animation.

Sequence – defines which movement the viewer will see.

 

Timing out –

Rendering – the process of generating an image from a model (or models in what collectively could be called a scene file), by means of computer programs.

Motion Blur – the apparent streaking of rapidly moving objects in a still image or a sequence of images such as a movie or animation.

Depth of field – the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp in an image.

Rotoscoping – an animation technique in which animators trace over footage, frame by frame, for use in live-action and animated films.

Stop-Motion – (also known as stop frame) is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own.

Claymation – Each animated piece, either character or background, is “deformable”—made of a malleable substance, usually Plasticine clay.

Puppetoons – is a type of replacement animation, which is itself a type of stop-motion animation. In traditional stop-motion, the puppets are made with movable parts which are repositioned between frames to create the illusion of motion when the frames are played in rapid sequence.

Flash – manipulates vector and raster graphics to provide animation of text, drawings, and still images.

Shockwave – allows Adobe Director applications to be published on the Internet and viewed in a web browser on any computer which has the Shockwave plug-in installed.

Anime -a style of animation originating in Japan, characterized by colorful graphics and often featuring themes intended for an adult audience.

Rarity Playing Card Desgin

 

This is the playing card I made for the character Rarity. The diamonds are her symbol which is why those are on the card and the stained glass effect looks similar to the diamonds in some ways so it made sense to include that. The dots around the main image were added just for design purposes but they are the same color as the darker purple in her mane.
