Thanks Matt! I like your projects too. By the way, I learn a lot here, with all community…so I would like to thank about the knowledge learned.
This animation is beem made like this:
Sketches and rought animation = started with Pencil, but now only using Gimp.
Clean up and final illustration = inkscape ( layers for body parts and limbs ).
Animation, composition and effects = Synfig.
This is the fastest animation made by myself up to now. With this kind of process I had speed up the projects, and this is the focus…test and study fastest processes.
Another subject: I found a vimeo group of Synfig and made my subscription; the company Quadro-Chave too.So, lets try to populate this video group there. I think that this will be a good thing to Synfig.
Darkspace, about rocketbirds, awesome, I did not know about this. Watching the animations right now!!
Genete, no problem, We all have a lot of work everyday. Do not care about that, everything has a time to happen.
About Ninja tux, the idea is use this project as an study for the main short we are doing here in Quadro-Chave. After the end of this little short, I´ll send all the files and scripts, so we all can write little shorts about the Ninja. The idea as I told, is to use it as a study project…everything to test goes here first.
The character is a punisher, he fights the corporates, injustice and monopoly. In this first little short he is training and destroying three enemies - the publicity ( apple ), the monopoly ( microsoft ) and the fear ( people afraid to try ). It´s a parody of samurai Jack and other references.
Thanks! This week I’ll post some news. Just working hard here. I have posted in Vimeo some screencast about some tux ninja poses traced in inkscape. Take a look there. This week I’ll post here a new scene. Just two action scenes to finish the entire thing.
