Wednesday

Tot up another 12 hours on the counter....that brings it to 36 hours altogether. S'goin well.

So, on Monday the piece was a series of moving stills or....just stills or just lines and squiggles. And by the end of the day half of it was moving around the place.

On Tuesday, it piece of was a piece of see-through moving image work...most of which I thought was...OK.

But today! Today it is a coloured, moving image piece that I think has serious potential! So far, it is only block colours with no shading, but it still looks great. I'm praying I don't have to pull an all night tomorrow to get all of the shading done, but it is probably quite likely. Still, I think it will be worth it and that is what is important....but there is the sound and documentation to do first, that is more important!

OK...so to the screenshots....O no wait! I have prepared a rather special treat for you. I have made a time lapse video of the last 12 hours worth of my life :D / :( ..... It is quite strange to condense all of your hard work and 12 hours of your life into 2 and half minutes worth of footage with a African tribe drumming session as a backing track.... Am I 'cool' yet?

"Hey, Dan! Where have you been for the last 12 hours....?"

So there you go. As you can see, there was a lot to color in, but when I got my head down and got cracking I got into. Having some back ground music helped...you can get through quite a lot of that stuff in 12 hours. I've had some right stuff on....Beatles, Duffy, Buen Chico, Miles Davis, Pink Floyd.....it has been fun because I don't listen to music when I animate...there is now point 'cause I'm concentrating so hard I don't hear it...and when the disc tray pops out after its finished it scares the crap out of me normally....and it drains CPU, which I have a limited amount of.

Anyway, enough jibba-jabba...Rock on towards the deadline and bring on the music!
