I have now drawn 56 Backgrounds.
I have a few left and my goal is to finish most of them this week and start animation next week.
I will need to make a new planning obviously…
There is a few POV in the film and I haven’t decided if they will be fully animated backgrounds and characters or if it will only be a big background with pans.
Anyway, here’s what it looks like when I try to review most of the BGs:
Well done to everyone that participated, and got it right
The answer was a Night Sky but Inverted.
You can always buy the book here to help me add more production days, and actually let me finish the film.
Here is the Sky, inverted this time:
I just finished this background, and it’s quite weird, so I thought it would be fun to give a book away to someone that manage to guess what it is.
and announce it on this page on next monday.
You have until Sunday midnight!
The winner will get the book number 99, signed with it’s donkey post card and access to the deadman’s mailing list that gives access to special secret shit.
Spread the word, on facebook, twitter, google + (do people use that?), smoke signals, etc…
And if you can’t wait until monday, because you really really need to have the book, you can buy it here: Help Finance the film.
Or simply read about it. (you should buy it though)
For those of you who already have the book, It would make a good present for your grandmas, so I’ll be happy to send it to whoever you ask me to.
I finally got around editing that “making of video” I was supposed to last week.
It shows the different steps I go through to make an animation.
1) Shoot live action.
2) Choose only the frames I need for the animation.
3) Time them and place them correctly.
4) Rotoscop them.
5) Clean the drawings and shade them
6) Place the animation on the Background.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, especial one of me moving in slow motion in my living room, there you go:
