My business card (so far)

So, the theme I want to go with for my packaging is a simple bouncing ball. I think when people see it, they'll get that I'm an animator. I want to make it colorful and cute as well.

I've gone through a few different phases of it, but I've come up with one that I like.

I used a 5 color theme, and a really cute font from The one I chose was "Adelfy" free version.

Here's a preview:

It might change depending on what my professor says, but I like this one.

I have to fix it so it's the proper size and the bleed lines and everything is correct before I go to get it printed.

I'm leaning toward a 14pt. semi gloss for it. I think it'll be great.

Portfolio requirements

So, I've gotten the requirements to pass from my teacher.

1. The demo reel, it must be at least 1:30 with an animated intro and credits
2. The dvd covers, and dvd labels. I need at least 20
3. My business cards
4. My demo reel website (I'm going to use wordpress)
5. A flat book, with at least 8 pages

So yeah, I think I can pull all that off before midterm evaluation. I have one animation to finish and the others need editing. But since I don't have any other classes, I should be able to finish it all.

I'm doing, dvd covers and labels this weekend.

smoker work in progress....still.

Ok, so I've been trying to add a cough after her inhale, but to me it looks like she's eating something. I think I'm going to change it so she's drinking something instead. It wouldn't be too hard actually, I just need to finish the animation, and replace the cigarette with a straw in a cup.

Since it doesn't look like she's enjoying the drink, I'll make it an energy drink. Although I love them, they don't always go down so well...

But yeah.

Since I already did the smoke effect, I'll still use it somehow. I'm thinking of adding a little cup of tea below it, and just make it an effects animation.

New blog design!

So, I've redone my blog again. This time its a lot more personal. I made the header and the background myself!

It started with this little sketch of myself:

I took that and colored it in Flash. I added a simple background and title.

To keep with the design I made a background that matched the knit hat in the sketch.

Smoke effect

So, I've been tinkering around with effects lately, I need smoke for one of my pieces, and after a few test I finally got a result I liked.

Here it is.
