Animation WIP

I sketched a background music today.. melancholic doom metal something… have to program drums still. 

About 1/10 of the backgrounds ready now. I guess you should be able to see the setting of  the “story” from this piece. It’s one helluva gif so this might be my last update until it’s ready. It seems this wordpress doesn’t support .swf.

//Actually.. I could update this file here from time to time:   and now you’re a million miles away 

it might lag because there’s no preloader yet..

I’m doing a little animation work so I don’t have time to make any additional sketches. Instead I might upload these progress pics. Now I have the character mostly animated, without the ending scene though. I think I got the walking quite correct.. being my second try ever.

I was watching the extended edition appendices of LOTR and got greatly inspired (once again..) by the amazing concept art by John Howe and Alan Lee. In particular these isometric and bird’s view sketches of Osgiliath and Riddermark. Obviously I cannot reach the same level of detail and harmony but still I wanted to try and start from the top corner, work my way down to the bottom and see what comes out from my brains. I used a little reference on the mountains, to see how they are formed. But still just a ‘stream of consciousness'(?) or smthng.. :P

Now post-mortem as I look these houses I notice that there are some factual errors in the architecture. All of them are quite medieval and that’s good. The church is clearly Norwegian, as are some of the peasant huts, while the lord’s manor is definitely English. And there are few log barns which I’m not sure if those have been seen outside Finland… oh well.. too lazy to correct anything.. anyways, this could be located anywhere around southern Scandinavia and western Europe.

From little misunderstanding with my friend yesterday, I got this idea of actually drawing me in 2070’s. I should do a little more in depth visualization of future some day, for the very reason that it is a  _difficult_ subject. This picture has many inaccuraties. This should be a shoreline of Oulu marketplace Torinranta and the theater but I guess the water level would be alot higher by then, because of the climate change. Also I doubt that you’re able to buy this thick tablet PCs anymore, even now MBAir is thinner.. but maybe I’ll just that it for nostalgy reasons. Technology is even more difficult to predict since the singularity might be approaching any time now.. and the rise of the machines of course :D
Me? I’d still grow a long hair and listen to CMX, why the hell not?

(note that I tagged this with “winter”)

This morning I killed time in Café Saara in Kirkkokatu, Oulu. It’s right next to the city hall, and I recommend it for everyone. I’ve got to say they make the most excellent coffee and Reindeer Croissant was delicious too. This view wasn’t too good but all the seats with clear vision to city hall where taken. Shame, I’d have liked to draw it but some another time then.

No vanishing points whatsoever, I tried to draw looking at the paper as little as possible, so perspective is quite off.
