Still Animating with Some Stills to Prove It

Below are six stills selected from my current hand-drawn frame-by-frame animation projects. I have been so busy learning how to use the software and learning the basics of animation that I have neglected posting here. I am hoping to get several of the finished animations hosted online to make it easy to view them and to embed them here.

The Speaker has an oft repeated one word monologue with himself.

This Speaker has an oft-repeated one word monologue with himself his statements are given visual form as in this frame where he is talking about himself.

The Discussion

The topic of this discussion takes on the dynamics of the proponents’ emotions and eventually explodes.

The Relieved Animator

After much frustration, the animator finally feels good about his work and relaxes. This is a subjective self-portrait.

Maya Dog

This is a still from a very short test. Most likely will not be developed into a completed animation.

The Man with a Leaf to Say

Foliage is growing out of his mouth until the screen is full of vines and leaves… I am not certain what is going to happen next to him or the foliage…

Clothespin Monster

This is a still from “A Taste of Freedom” featuring a figure that morphs extensively in the beginning of the animation then as the dangerous clothespin approaches he dares to probe it with his tongue with disastrous results. There is lots of pushing and pulling, grunting and groaning and eventually he gets “A Taste of Freedom.”

I am having so much fun!! I will make a greater effort to stop by here more often with a post and report on current activities and projects.
