MAP: Hands Up Report
A Documentation of my MAP: Hands up
Overview:
            First time doing a MAP animation, there were pretty much ups and downs, some of which were due to unexpected situations. I won’t bore you with the details on how I delayed the posting date of some of those stages since about 80% of the time was either due to procrastination or done earlier than expected, unless there is a significant impact to that particular stage. I’ve linked the past stages appropriately in this report, so if you want to see the animation in question just click the thumbnail.
 
Programs:
Adobe CS6 Photoshop
Adobe CS6 Flash
Adobe CS6 After Effects
 
Medium: Digital 2D Animation
Audio of Choice: Hands Up by Max Schneider
Dialogue Script: Everybody is getting low, there ain’t no stopping we!
Duration: Approximately 10 Seconds
 
Goals:
-Test out the Animation pipeline
-Do lip sync without showing the lips

IT'S ALIIIVEEE!! ::wheezes::

I finally got around to uploading this thing~ Oh man... making a comic is hard! D:

But's it's here! :D You can read it here on DA through the new group I made for it: :iconmiragecomic: or on Tapastic. . I'm also working on setting up a tumblog for it... so that will be here soon also!

Or you can read it on it's own website (Which is 4 pages ahead of anywhere else on the internet!)

Mirage the Website!

It updates every Tuesday! (Ignore the Monday on the website, I wrote that when I was young and inexperienced)

Been working on this thing for a year now... I really hope it turns into something decent :) And I hope people like it!

Now off to work! ::grabs her flying carpet and floats serenely into a dark sun, which opens its mouth and swallows her::

So... I have had this for a while but I've been worried about posting... I hope that you might take the time to check it out though, and I totally understand if it's not your thing!

I'm an unknown entity in comics and animation, and that makes it hard to find people interested in working with me (also in part because I've been a mental mess). As such, I started Mirage, a personal project, to prove to myself and others that I can consistently make a thing on time and complete it. I started posting it in January this year and I've hit my deadline every week for the last five months! I don't know if it's any good yet, but it's going to occupy my time for at least another year or two.

In addition to Mirage, I'm working on a few small animation projects to get better at animation in general. I intend to learn motion graphics, 3D modeling, and other marketable skills while doing these projects. I've taken animation classes with Disney animators and I intend to take more classes in the future.

I've done fine art, illustration, portraiture, and graphic design, but the thing I love more than all of those has been animation and comics. Though animation is definitely topping out the other things, haha.

Very soon I need to start taking on freelance work because my job is no longer 100% covering my expenses (coughHEALTHCAREANDSTUDENTLOANScough). But in order to get the kind of work I want, I need to do some "volunteer" work in the animation and game community and network. Unfortunately for me, I worked through college and didn't prioritize meeting people over getting good grades. So I don't know a whole lot of people in the industry. I kind of have to start from scratch.

And so I thought... if anyone would be willing to support me in my Mirage endeavor and in learning to animate and network, that it would be very, very cool of you.

So I made a Patreon. I'm intending to fill it up with all sorts of things, but right now it's a little bare. As I get more time, I'm hoping to start editing together speed-draws and making some fun podcasts with friends to share there.

If you would like to support Mirage and my animation projects now and in the future, I'd very very much appreciate it! It's in no way an obligation, and feel free to stop at any time. It would be such an awesome way to support my work, since the things that I so love to do are not easily marketable outside of certain job markets.

If you got this far, thank you soso much! I really hope to show you some amazing stuff in the future!

Hello! I gave you a llama because you used icon/s that I adapted for dA (blender) in the way meant to be used (thank you!! Aww). You are encouraged to keep using my icons to show which tool, software, company or social web you used in the making of a deviation, in a journal, status post or comment. No credit for me is needed, and also no need to request permission, you have the right to use the icons :) (Smile)

If you use a tool, software or social web (or credit a character or company) I don't have the icon for, please tell me.

Tips:
  • If you want 16x16 icons, you can search in my gallery by using the media menu and adding ultramini to the name of the software/etc you are searching.
  • There are currently 5 sizes: big (very few ones yet, greater size than 50x50), normal (50x50), mid (35x35, not all has this size), mini (21x21) and ultramini (16x16). There are also animated icons. Animated icons are done only on request.
  • You can also add a minus before the term you want to be excluded from the search "blender by:linux-rules -mid -mini -ultramini" will return only the 50x50 icons).
  • If you want to search by my icons you use "by:linux-rules".
  • In composed icons (i.e. icons that are 1/2+2/2 etc.. there is a blank space when you introduce the icons from the add media menu (Marvel (2012) Icon ultramini 1/2 Marvel (2012) Icon ultramini 2/2 )
    If you remove the spaces, the icons will look better: Marvel (2012) Icon ultramini 1/2Marvel (2012) Icon ultramini 2/2.
      • this tips works with every artist, you can use that to search by other artist icons or works.
    • More info about my icons
    • For suggesting any icon to me, click here: URLs to do icons :) (Smile)
    • Here is the journal for → devices.


    • poserfan has high quality 16x16~ social media icons, check her Social Media Icons deviation if you need social media icons. Please, read the description before requesting there.
    • Icon-s has high quality 50x50 animated social media icons, check its Gallery if you need animated social media icons. If you miss any icon there then you can request me.
    • blueamnesiac has high quality game consoles icons, check this Pixel Art folder if you need icons of consoles.

    TL;DR/FAQ
    • Thanks for using the icons.
    • No, I am not refering to your avatar or profile pic.
    • Yes, I know you just most probably pressed add media Aww
    • I am not asking for credit

    You're welcome;3 I've learned a few things in Blender such as creating a character, rigging, painting, creating expressions. I'm still trying to learn how to make backgrounds and render in cycles quick at good quality. Rigging the clothes are difficult too. If you ever need any advice, I could help or you could look at some of David Ward's Blender tutorials. Also, search on Youtube for some more, that helped me.

    Learning is essential.:D

    Ahhh, thank you so much!! I might take you up on that, haha. And sweet, that looks like a great place to start! I got a book on Blender which I think will also help me learn. I use YouTube for learning everything, haha. Thanks so much for all the advice!! I really appreciate it <3
