Kristina, Megan, Sinéad and I worked as a team to create this presentation that highlight the 12 principles of animation, we took three elements each to look over and began researching into various artists and animations that covered the principles! My team worked really well! This is it!!
12 Animation Principles
This was the last day of life drawing and it was a good one! We got to spend time on one study for an whole hour, we were also allowed to use any type of medium we liked. I went for the Pentel brush pen again because I just wanted to use it so much more!!
Again I couldn’t spend time on just one piece, I went for two, I also done 2 as I messed her face up in the initial one and wanted to attempt it again. Both attempts do not look like her, but I’m happy enough with the drawings.

This is the final animation that I created for the opening for our presentation. It is just to show slightly how the game is set up and maybe played, it also shows the game field and the two characters that this game was designed around.
Within this animation I drew out every frame, till the last scene where I used photoshop timeline when I finally stopped being scared of using it. I also drew out all the backgrounds, characters and everything else. The only bit that was not created by me was the typography that Even designed for the end saying “domination”, which turned out lovely. I also edited it all and also inserted the sound. Even found the sound, but I couldn’t find her source for it unfortunately, but I believe it was from a free sound source.
I think it turned out okay, but I would have loved to been able to spend more time on it to make it a little better and it would have probably made more sense.
Tried to keep up with homeworks and to also test out a few techniques from class in everyday life. I wish I had done a lot more as I found the techniques taught extremely useful, it was just hard to find the time.
I began to type up a brief story of where this game derived from and how it was formed.. here is a little bit of the story so far!
There were two brothers, during their mortal life they both craved control and empowerment, they each seized opportunities to manipulate the weaker population into what the two power craving brothers wanted, it became a battle between the two men to see who could become the ruler of their world… But death caught them before they could finish their battle and they landed in Limbo..
They wandered through Limbo trying to find species to control to satisfy their cravings. But the land was a vast emptiness all they had was each other and their internal hatred for one another.
As they sat and slowly gave up a small character appeared through the icy ground. The two men looked at it curiously and then at each other, thinking to themselves that they were going to grab him first. But instead of their normal abrupt greediness taking control over their bodies they just looked at him.. The character walked and they followed it pointed to one side of the this huge landscape and one of the huge men walked over there, then the other stayed put…
The little character lifted his arms and flapped his coat with one vigorous swoop, it blew snow from the ground to reveal a wide open rocky terrain.. The ground started to shake and then two circular podiums lifted from either side of the field, each containing a few cages hangning from them with creepy creatures trapped inside of them … The men hit the ground with their hands and large rocky slabs that resembled similar appearances to cards grew from the ground. they suspended in the air in front of the grotesque mens… let the games begin!

Study of face
This week we were allowed to use ink and it was awesome! I was really excited as a friend and I went and bought the new pen that Michael had told us to buy and I hadn’t used it yet. OooooOOOooo new materials.
We got to spend the full hour experimenting with lines and trying to complete a study. As I am not very good at spending prolonged periods of time on just one piece I decided to attempt 2 different ones. I was nervous using pen because it is so permanent but it was still exciting, and Michael said he was happy with them, so that finished the day off so nicely!
I’m really enjoying Life drawing at the moment and I wish that we were doing more of it next semester, but I’ll just do it in my own time, to practice.
