15 FLD paper is dead, Long life to 12 FLD paper


This just to inform you that my box of 15 field animation paper is empty and now we will carry on with 12 fld animation paper. We had the 15 fld paper because I ticked the wrong case when I took the order on the chromacolor website (sorry, sorry). I know that Freya has suffered from that paper. Now it will be better as the 12 fld will be easier to manipulate: less stress, more speed, all to be happy.
Michael has nearly finished the ink and paint of scene 13 and will soon start scene 36. Sarah has nearly completed scene 31 (she gave me tuesday as a deadline). And Freya has just some final touches to add at scene 33 before to attack scene 28. Ashley will start the trace over of scene 37 tomorrow. It is all working well and we are in time according to the schedule (but not in advance).
So congratulations to all and keep the good work going on!

Happy Birthday Freya!

I was so immersed in my animation problems last week I completely forgot it was Freya's birthday. So Happy Birthday Freya! A little drawing for you.

Welcome Sarah!

We have a new member in the team!
Sarah has just join us to help with the scan and Ink and Paint.
This is great because we begin to have more and more finished scene that are ready for this stage and Michael could end overwhelmed by a wave of papers.
Ashley has nearly finished her first scene with an impressive speed (so well done Ashley) and will had completed it if the evil painters didn't have hide the drawings (don't worry we will overcome their dark purposes).
Michael have finished the Ink and Paint of sc 9 and started sc 13. I should have enjoyed to show you the result but the video is at home (anyway without the CGI plate it will look a bit silly). In replacement I post the line test of the scene on which I am working. It is pretty rough but I hope to finish it for the end of the week.
A note for Sarah: look at the first posts of the blog (in August , I think). There I explain that I would to do a montage of sketches for the credits end and I like if everybody in the team could contribute.
See you and carry on the good work!

Hello everyone,

It was a long time since I wrote the last post. Here is a little drawing from Freya conveying very well the way she must feel.
I hope she will be in full shape next week: I have a great scene to give her to inbetween (Yes, I know my interest didn't only come from my general kindness toward humanity). I have also a first animation to inbetween for Ashley: it is only one of the characters of the scene. The other one, Buddy, will be ready before she have finished this one.
It seems that uploading the linetests is too difficult for the computer right now so it should wait a little.

A little reminder: when you have finished your inbetweens and you give me back the scene, don't forget to include the field guide. If not we cannot scan the scene!

See you all Monday and have a great week end,

Hey team!

So, have finished clean-up 'pon Scenes 13, 33 and 36. So, behold, for your viewing pleasure! About to get started on a few separate projects of my own so my pace will slow a little, but am happily beavering away now on Scene 31, and a new scene I await for next week.

Enjoy :)
