Last year finally introduced me to Inkscape, which I was aware of but never really got into. Thanks to AROS and AmiFIG i got interested in vector graphics again. I’m really a pen and paper guy and using digital art should be more of my focus than it is really. It’s of importance because it opens up a new world and much more possibilities. So my plan for 2011 is hereby ready.
Here’s two recent projects. It’s banners for webpages this time.
Tried it many times never got into it. But suddently after playing around with AmiFIG (see belov) i got interested in Inkscape again. So what to do ? Why not an own Icon-set for AmiFig !
Here’s the result :
Playing around with Open source “AMIGA” = AROS and one of it’s painting programs AmiFIG. Sketching was done in LunaPaint.
A logo I made for a friend of mine for his Facebook group. Amiga and Playstation logos combined.
So I have a main idea of what my animation will be. Nothing in detail yet. I needed to have the main character outlined in order to take my ideas further.
So this is how he looks. A bandit, yes you guessed it. So he’s probably going to rob something. I don’t have the whole picture myself yet either. I need to get somekind of storyboard done next.
I haven’t decided how I’m going to do the actual animating. Will I use my tablet or is it going to be pen and paper and my scanner. I get quite well along with my tablet but pen & paper still feels better. Time will tell.
A new year feels like a new beginning. What could I be up to in 2010 ? I’m not sure but I would love to draw a lot more than I have done in past years. I thought about starting a new animation project, and now I need a good idea. I want it to be meaningful maybe a bit fun. And I have found a program (Pro Motion) that could do the job for me.
If you have worked with animations and Deluxe Paint in the past then check out the Windows version of Pro Motion .http://www.cosmigo.com/promotion I’m sure it will be up to the job..
Christmas is closing in again. So here’s a picture from my old archive (1997) This drawing was made for a newspaper that my former workplace regularly sent out to it’s employees.
