The iPad is a fine tool for drawing but I couldn't get past the size of the pens...so I ordered a small Cintiq and its pretty amazing. Much different than sketching on an iPad. Also excited to try out ToonBooms Animate! More soon!
I'm still occasionally drawing outside of work (works been taking up quite a bit of my nights these days) and using AnimationCreator to create animations on the fly. I made a couple of quick ones just because I thought the ideas were fun. Still trying to remember to just get a simple idea out and not fall into the pit of attempting a full on production. Heres what I have this time around.
It's been a while, I know. Fun things at Bungie have been happening over the past couple of years (which I can't talk about so don't ask :) ) so I've been away. Lately I've using the sweet iPad app, Animation Creator HD, to make fun little 2D pencil tests. They're not polished in the least but the app has made it extremely simple for me to make and upload them. Here's the first two videos I've made.
Happy puppy -
This was the first 2D test I did to learn the app.
This one got out of hand pretty quick. Initially it was a laughing test (because I imagine animating a laugh would be tricky) but turned into a personality attempt.
