DeviantArt has animators
, I had no idea!!
I just learned this, when my buddy Li (aka lhs here on DevArt) showed me the gallery of Basakward:
Which has some really brilliant stuff on it, espescially the 10-Second Club stuff, which has me very interested.
I can upload animation, and you guys can actually see what I do all day. For my first little attempt at uploading a Quicktime, I've selected the pencil test for a piece of animation that is used by HTF Studios as a part of our demo reel (the new opener, actually). The finished piece is in full color, with sound, of course, but since that's work-work, I'm probably breaking the rules even showing this. But in case you're wondering what in the HELL I would be thinking, doing pencilled shadows on pencil test animation, it might help to know that the end result has a very sketchy, hand-painted look (and was meant to). We took these frames and colored each one individually (in Photoshop, I believe), and composited from there... a lot different from the way these things are normally handled by our studio.
Anyhow, Sorenson 3 Quicktime. I'm still figuring this thing out, so if this is all screwed up, that's why. You'll need a recent version of Quicktime to view it, but even though it's 6 seconds long, it's half-sized and of medium quality, so the file size is quite tolerable.
I can upload animation... still getting over that.
For additional fun, see if you can spot where I totally screwed up the motion of the spinning briefcase. Oops. It was a small enough mistake that the director decided to allow it to remain, but it still makes me twitch every time I see it.
