Moving to Backgrounds...

After finalizing the characters, I have to design backgrounds....I haven't do much, as Saiful also the background designer, so he actually did a few already...

I just finished one...the view of the jetty...I try to make the view quite blur as to focus on the characters in the animation.

I also did the water movement animation, just for test....

Week 3

First session, nothing much... just consults with Josh about the Concept Pitch. and tries to finish the assignment due on Wednesday.

I tried to design my characters, finished the storyboard, and so on....

My idea for the concept pitch is making a love comedy story, which the title is 'Fishing Love'. The story is about young man who likes fishing very much. One day he decided to go fishing, and he got an idea where he's going to put a dress on the bait(maggot) as to attract more fish. Then he went to the jetty, and start fishing....But what happened was, all the fishes were laughing at the maggot instead of eating it..they found it was so funny looking the maggot in dress... After that, the maggot met another handsome maggot and they fell in love. They started to hold each other and thus Danny, the young man tough that he caught a fish. he quickly pull the rod and snap it....but he found that the bait stuck with the other young woman's bait. They looked and started to like each other...fell in love...end of the story...

Week 2: Learn to Walk

In this session, I've learnt how to animate walking movements. It's kind a fun...
Using a frame-by-frame method, I drew different position of legs. There are 4 important positions which are contact, down, passing and up.

The positions of the legs have to be suitable with the movements in real life. Then I've learnt about the function of F7, where it creates a blank frame which delete the previous drawing. I've really enjoyed this studio...Learn new things..

First Week Studio...

In the first week studio, we were introduced to Flash Professional CS4. Yeah, that's what we'll be using throughout the semester in this course. In the first session, we were shown some examples of 2d animation in Youtube. That's what basically we were have to do for the assignment....

Then we learn some of the basic movement such as motion tween. And also the functions of short-key F5 and F6. So, overall that were the things that were though on the first studio session.

Then, on the second session, we were asked to create a ball and some 'pen line tools' to draw the movement where the ball's going to go. At this stage, still using the basic movement of motion tween, we convert the movement line as a guide for the ball. And also some other stuff like onion skin, ease out and in, and try to make the ball logically bounces with the changing of shapes, stretch out and in.

This is the animation that I created after the first week studio.....
