other than lip sync... what is the project about?

 

Cuz theres no interesting points of your character feels very boring and generic.

 

the character is a Gate keeper, who's anoyed about people coming to see the resurection of Lazrus, case they trample all over his garden and lawn. so he charges people money to see the mirecal.

 

i had an idea to instead of the background being a garden and cemertary scene, i wanted to go more for an Audition style.

so this character is an actor screen testing to get the Part.. so in the background u might see a sign or something saying,

 

Auditions for "The Resurection of Lazrus" and perhaps a " * Rec " flashing in the top right of the screen"

 

all i have to animate is a 3 sec line of the guy saying " That will be, Ten pence to get in"

im being marked on how good the lip sync is. not the character himself or anything else.

 

but i do have ideas, research, storyboards and concepts that all go together for the project.

i feel its going very well, and couple people i showed to so far say its looking really good, that the love the character and the lip sync is going very well, that some cartoons dont even have that good a lip sync.

 

not sure what else to say at this point, if u have any more questions feel free to ask. ;)

 

below is what ive been working on so far.

Cheers :) , im glad you like it.

 

in the early stages i dont think u liked it as much. I think it all came together in the end tho.

i must say i enjoyed this project even tho it was short. I was given 3 module projects this semester to work on and this was the shortest one. so perhaps thats why there isnt "enough" work (as you said) put into it. But i have to prioritise and at the end of the day i was only asked to animate that short clip, come up with a short storyboard and some character designs, i had other ideas for the project, funny comic ideas that didnt make the final cut, that perhaps a Sheephook yanks the actor off stage at the end of the line ( cause hes no good for the part ). like i said i could have went deeper into the project, but why waste my time getting bogged down with it, when im only geting graded on the basic's ... the lip sync.

at the end of the day the foundations of a character are in place and its now something i can go back too at any stage in my life.

 

 

P.S - i realise this is the "Product Design Forums" but i know there is other content on here non-ID related.

i also love the community and the quick responce you get back once you upload some work. everyone is helping each other with ideas, crit, and ways to improve. something you might not find on other forums. so yea ... hope its still ok to be uploading the multi discipline work i upload here, weather it be, ID, Animation, Caracter design what ever im working on.

the website thing.. as gringoire already mentioned.. it's common.

 

however, if your target audience is the younger generation, and those things will work, why not use it? Then I went on and read.. the website is for a nearby city right? Hmm.. I'm not sure if that design will work out anymore.

-------------------------

 

i like them because they seem special. No anime style, or any other style that is on TV (as far as I know).

 

 

i had ment to get back to this comment, i had wanted to say that i was in discussion with my tutor and she liked it.

i think also that the nearby city its quite a rough city in the wrong areas, lot of teenage gangs, lots of Griffiti and mourals on the side of houses etc. so i was hoping the griffiti style website would reach out to these younger kids, its something they will engage with instead of thinking "Aw F*@K this website its a load of Sh*T" that they will appriciate it hopefully without them knowing they will learn a bit about the city they live in etc. Also the artwork for the website will be done in a tastefull way (no naughty stuff) that it will still be ok for young kids and even the older generation to come and check it out.

 

its more of an interactive website with little animations and sounds going on to engage the viewer, to get them involved and less on the hard facts . THIS THIS AND THIS. you would see on other goverment run websties were everything is grided out and slapped on your face as you read. with my design the user will want to delve deeper into the site.

thanks for the statment you made about my cartoony drawings, its nice to know i have a Unique style when it comes to animation.

Hay guys, been feeling bad about uploading so much Animation work and " non - Product design work " ... :oops:

 

but ive been working on my Coin Sorter project and i just did a marker rendering on one my designs.

 

i think it turned out awsome !! hopefully you will agree and for once this will prove to you all ive got the skills when i set my mind to it !!

 

below is the oringal sketch, Black "Bic Crystal" pen and outlined using, Black "Pentel liquid gell ink 0.7mm ball"

 

and the marker render created using "Tria Product design 24 set" and i white "Crayola penil"

ok... so this is a coin sorter... ? ... if it is... then what's it about... ? At least some sort of intro about it... If you want to do a project I guess you should start with gathering information about what you want to do... then you should explain how your product works... like what's it about... this is the most important thing when it comes to product design... then you should go and work at it's design... how it'll look like... People want to see what's it about when they look at "daily usage" products... then they look at the design... unlike cars which need to look good at first... Conclusion... it's a bit shallow... I'm sure that there something ingenious in your mind... but you have to take your time and show it when you really are ready... don't haste...

i thought it was mug.

 

i think you are missing something basic... a coin slot for the coins to go into!

 

Aside from that, the rendering should help the viewer read the form.

Rather it is making it look flat, cuz there is not value changes in the form.

Lights and darks dont exit. its just one flat value.

 

Also you need to work on your ellipses... IF from your top view the sorter is supposed to be a perfect circle.

Cuz right now it is reading as something more as a football shape.

 

Also the the perspective is off.

you made me 'lol' in a good way, it was a short clip, but it got me lol.

 

I am glad that you know who you are trying to target, and what will get their attention. If you know what you are doing, then your good to go.

 

-----------------------

 

the rendering is "not bad" i just think some of the transition you made from light to dark is rough and too visible. Like the black bottom part, its like.. one grey on the left, then another on the right.

 

 

keep working at it
