Make Things

Make Things
Pixar’s movie, Inside Out won the 2016 Oscar for Best Animated Feature. Pete Docter, one of the producers of the film, had excellent advice in his acceptance speech.

“..there are days you’re going to feel sad. You’re going to feel angry. You’re going to feel scared. That’s nothing you can choose. But you can make stuff. Make films. Draw. Write. It will make a world of difference.”

Playing with DoInk

Here is a look at the frame by frame or composition interface of the iPad app, DoInk.

DoInk user interface

Below is the quick test of the Doink animation app for the iPad, and youTube I don’t think you can grab a more pixelated and rough looking poster frame(my apologies if you fix this later). This animation used the simple frame by frame method, but the app also has key frame based animation tools. The app was very easy to use and a lot of fun.

This cute little skull was happy in life and now happy in the afterlife.

Time-Lapse Robot Painting

I’m working on a commission painting of a robot and decided to use the Brushes App on the iPad to create a color study. One of the really cool things about the app is the ability to play back your drawing. There is something kind of magical about watching the creation of something.

Here is the final image.
