Stop, Drop, Shut 'Em Down Open Up Shop

Oh man, so I had all these awesome blog posts planned, but shit got crazy and you know what they say- the best laid plans blah blah blah don't play Sun City.

So, almost all of the shots are in After Effects and everything is starting to come together. Here's what it's looking like so far.

Most of the shots aren't as fancy as these, I was just trying to impress people. The majority look more like third image. Man, I'm really kicking myself for not making an animatic. The shots are individually looking ok, but will they piece together well? Probably not.

Oh man, did my computer just make a goat noise? Dude, I gotta get out of here, it's 2 AM.

The colors children the colors!

So a while back I had this contest asking all of my fans to submit a color scheme for the characters in my new short- the winner would actually have their scheme used for the final animation!

I only received one submission. I blame poor advertising, which consisted of a sticky note I put on a stray dog- hoping he would you know, wander around a lot. Nevertheless, that single submission was great, though I could have done without the mockery.

Anyways so I started coloring in the characters, ran it through a bunch of filters and stuff in After Effects and this is what I got!

JK. These are the swatches I made in Photoshop to help me color, but it would be kinda cool if they looked like this. Probably would have made the past 4 months easier. . .

Color Schmolor/Corrections

If there's one thing that still baffles me, it's color schemes. I allotted 3 weeks for coloring this short, but I feel like this whole week is just going to be me trying to figure out the color scheme. It's weird because you sorta have this picture in your head, but when you slop it down in photoshop, it's just looks like weird.

Oh well, in the meantime, here's a cleaner version of a cover for the next "Shut Up and Do It" comp, though I must make a correction, this is not set in stone, it's possible another persons design might be used.
