A great lecture on information today and the value of craft. The information is so overwhelming in this day of age. That we see so much bullshit but Brad Frost sees this as a good thing, because we are seeing more value of really worked things. The craft behind things that have quality. See it and reflect over it, it’s great!
Breakdown time baby
Now I have uploaded a breakdown of The Orange on vimeo. It’s so freaking hard to make a breakdown. But it was fun as well many laughs at some wrong sayings. I’m just showing a bit how I did in photoshop CS4, and I have actually tried CS6 a little it’s so much better.
I’m a newbie at this old school and amazing animation genre. I’m trying to learn it and I had a friend who inspired me a lot who tried to push me to do more of it. And My projects ”The Orange” and ”Light speed car” that I have put on vimeo have gotten so much great responses and I get so freaking excited when I read the comments.
The Mellow Mustard school of knowledge #1
There are several things that I think a motion graphic designer should think of. Now I’m still a junior at design and motion graphics. But I have some things that I think people might not think of as much as they should, in my profession. As a motion graphics designer you should have some basic knowledge about illustration as well as movement of objects ...
Music is awesome.
What inspires me isn’t only graphic design. But also music, and then you think ”well duh”. But a really great soundtrack while working is very important to filter your ideas. And sometimes while working in motion graphics you can find great ideas in the sound. Movement have always sound, you can identify a movement by sound.
I love this short film so much, it’s so great. The story, the look and feel of it, it’s amazing. And the music is so good. I love the shading and the reflections in the hair. The animations are great as well. This is what Disney should be focusing on. Watch it got dammit!
I got great response on the latest image that I put up on dribbble that was so much fun. It’s a new style that I’m exploring with a style that looks kinda messy and not detailed. But it is, and it’s really hard to get that feeling. If you have seen the cartoon Dexters Labratory (new episodes) that style have influenced me allot.
It’s crazy how good looking this music video are. Not only is it one of the songs I listen to the most at the time. The video made it like 1000 times better. Great colors and lighting, and it’s telling a story. It’s great 10/10 from me.
Tips and trix
Hello fellow motion graphics peeps! I have some great tips that will speed up your workflow, at least they did for me when I discovered them.
If you hold down shift in your timeline you will get a tree of your pre-comps and you see which comp you where previously in/working in.
Mondays and heroes
Hey, it’s Monday if you haven’t noticed and I’m really tired. I was up late with my brother, I’m living with my brother because he lives close by where my new apartment is. So I’m sleeping there while I paint all the walls.
And as you can see I love DC comics and Marvel comics.
