Need Your Disease


With baby number 2 only days away, I came up with a side project that I'm sure I won't have time for ;-) At the very least, it will help me to stretch my animation muscles outside of the game and work more efficiently. At least that is the hope. via Need Your Disease http://ift.tt/29i7pbQ

Need Your Disease


Not the most flattering pose, but it is actually the wind up to an uppercut. My scant few minutes animating in Toon Boom are butting up against my lack of knowledge. Trying to get the most out of the rig I made and finding out that it doesn't work for everything. I'm trying to get quicker at just drawing the pieces I need instead of trying to force the ones I already have to work. It is taking longer than I would like. Hopefully it will be worth it in the end. #toonboom via Need Your Disease http://ift.tt/291CUoh

Need Your Disease


I know you're probably sick of looking at the same wall, but I got a door on there. Slowly chipping away at this on my lunch break may have worked out. I'm really starting to get the itch to animate something again. I might have to rework my rig though. I learned so much since doing the RBMC video that I think I can get better animation if I just rework some stuff. All of the art in game will stay, but I think using some more deformers will help with attacks and flying. More to come. #construct2 #gamedev #indiedev via Need Your Disease http://ift.tt/28NQYkD

Need Your Disease


Took another swing at the tiles. Added some bricks to outline the top of the windows, cut off the bottom wood extensions so they looked like they were tucked into the building while also extending out, and I did a quick dirt blotch to lay under the brick texture. I'm not in love with it, but it is way better than I've had in the past. I think I'm going to make a door and some awnings next. That will make them feel complete and I can get back to character animation and maybe some enemy stuff. More to come. via Need Your Disease http://ift.tt/28J6jpw
