Up Chuk Duck (Pilot)
progress post #09

Here is the animation for the scene below. I have removed the object(s) on the shelf as to not give away any plot.

Mike said...

GhettoFab said...

lovin the movement! cant wait to see more!

ryan said...

james and fab: thanks guys! :)

mike: I've divided the pilot up into 4 chunks. I'm still working on the first chunk which is around 88% complete. Each chunk is roughly 2 minutes in length.

Mike said...

any chance you can post it in parts?

ryan said...

Nah, I want to release it as a whole.

I'll continue to post animated clips every now and again, though.

NICE RACK!!!

When turning the head, it's natural to blink. This could also be used as an anticipation for him to stare at what is on the shelf. However, I'm not entirely sure about the context of this shot. It may well be that he's so scared of what is chasing him that you want him to emphasise that with a hard unblinking stare even when he turns to the shotgun [ oh, did I say shotgun...]. So don't let what I said eat away at you in your every waking moment. Which it will.

Danne8a said...

Nice animation! Im curious to the final thing.

Do you gonna clean them up? Or are you gonna use these animations?

Mitch L said...

Hey you animate in flash. Do you know why the export for animated gif's give problems?

Like you see these strange selections here.
gif animation

bog & danny, thanks!! :)

mitch

Do you gonna clean them up? Or are you gonna use these animations?

I'm just gonna use this animation. It's too much work to clean up in-betweens when you're doing a cartoon by yourself. (At least it is for me!) :P

Do you know why the export for animated gif's give problems?

Hmmm.. that's really strange. It looks as if some of your lines are selected by the subselection tool.. But I don't really know why it would show up in the exported gif. I never export animated gifs so unfortunately I'm not really familiar with the technicalities.

On my computer :P

I can't just show you guys everything I've animated so far.. If I did, what fun would it be seeing the finished product?? :)

TH3DEN said...

looks awesome dude sweet head turn! are you drawing it into flash?

can't wait to see the full thing.

You have been talking about this for like over a year now and you don't even have two minutes of it done? LOL

ryan said...

th3den: thanks man, yeah i'm drawing it straight into flash with a wacom.

anon: quality cartoons take time to make. if i didn't have a job and could sit at home working on this all day, every day, it would get done a lot quicker.

you don't even have two minutes of it done?

There is 2 min 24 sec animated.

Doesn't seem like much, but when considering that the last scene I animated used 42 drawings and was only 4 seconds in length.. and the scene before that consisted of 62 drawings and was a mere 3.5 seconds in length.. it's a lot.

Mike said...

So do you still have to add color to the animation?

ryan said...

yes

andrewQuintiliani said...

Seriously funny stuff here! Kermit scares the f**k out of me, even more than the pedobear.

Danne8a said...

I sometimes don't think too many people understand the painstakingly looooong process of animation.
Ryan is a traditional animation artist and puts more drawings in one second than most animators today do!
(Believe me, I'm one of them! Especially under deadlines!)
Thanks for the blog and cool cartoons, Ryan!

What an idiot.

bog_art said...

EL GRANDE said...
