Finding a comfortable and efficient position to work is hella difficult when you’re short (160cm), because all desks and work tables are too tall.
I GOT A CINTIQ 22HD and HOLYSHIT it is GIGANTIC.
The whole thing is bigger than my monitor, it’s freaking intimidating, like, I’ll have to use the stylus on it, but damn I don’t want to scratch the screen. And I found how to configure both the monitor and the tablet to work correctly.
That’s one hella big investment for my future as an animator/illustrator/something.
Something funky is going on with the eyebrows before she raises her arm, so I’ll fix that later. The next step is to add details and modify little things.
Since I was just digging through my Hirohiko Araki folder, I thought it might be a good time to bring out this ancient photo of Araki in his house from the 90s, and point out some of my favorite things about it.
- it’s the 90s and he has a CRT WIDESCREEN dude takes his movie-watching seriously
- FLORALS AND PAISLEYS I’m not sure if it’s his wife decorating or if he likes that but either way it’s kind of wonderful
- it’s interesting to see exactly HOW MUCH of a Western decoration aesthetic he’s got going on here
- yeah i know people in Japan don’t wear shoes indoors but SUIT WITH SLIPPERS IS ADORABLE
- look way the fuck off to the left, there’s a teddy bear just poking in the frame
so yeah 1990s hirohiko araki sitting in his swank as fuck grandma-decorated living room that must have cost a fortune to build in japan smiling and being adorable while wearing fluffy slippers and a teddy bear is on the sofa is one of my favorite “portrait of the author” pictures of all time.
He’s so adorable… and he writes JoJo.
A little preview of the clean lines with the hair.
I’m wondering if I should show less animation progress so people will be a little bit more surprised about the final product, but at the same, I’ve been posting my animatics for more than a year, and it’s helpful to have feedback.
Cleaning, progressing. There are little things I’ll modify, like the arms, which seem longer toward the end.
"nathan is a poopyhead"
I know exactly what the last option is referring to and I am not happy at all fasjg
i cant escape this song
I’m just confused, and google might also be referring to another Estelle.
I’ve been listening to more than 30 hours of Dune audiobooks. I might soon develop prescient abilities and go crazy.
Also, listening to audiobooks while working is fun. I listened to “Dune”, and now I’m listening to “Dune Messiah”.
I’m getting to something, and obviously, I can’t get away with not drawing and animating her face anymore, but I’m way more happy with that movement. Thanks for the feedback, guys! I may not necessarily answer, but I always read your comments and suggestions.
I may now start to refine it and maybe one day I’ll be done with that project. Well, ideally for the deadline I was given.
