Whoah, totally turned this blog into a graveyard this early in 2009! It’s been weeks since I last posted!
Swamped with work, that is why. The current animation project that I am working on requires my full and undivided attention. It’s not like any other Flash animation that I’ve worked on. It requires a lot of hand drawing and I mean real hand-drawn clean ups and inbetweens, not like my other projects where the elements are already there and all I had to do was move them around in each frame to create the animation. This project is like doing traditional style animation all over again, only done in Flash. No motion tweening, all straight animation drawn by hand. Not to mention clean up and painting too!
It’s a good thing I have a Wacom Cintiq, otherwise I cannot imagine how to do this on a regular Wacom Pen Tablet.
Now that I mentioned my Cintiq, I might upgrade to the 21UX as soon as this current one, the 20WSX, turns one year old in my possession. This model that I have was discontinued and I still have not figured out why that happened. To make sure that I am future-proof and will always have support, I will exchange this with the 21UX, which is the flagship model and will probably remain in the Wacom line up permanently.
Oh, I also must mention that I have not touched my camera for quite some time and have not taken any photographs lately. I seem to have feel into another creative rut photography wise and currently am in a dearth of inspiration. Maybe all that snow outside, which I like very much but turns everything bleak, had something to do with it.
So that’s it. I was not able to welcome the New Year here with a bang, but I still welcome it nonetheless. There are some minor stuff happening in the background here and I will update as soon as those things come into fruition. Until then, have a nice day!
