Abe Animation from handdrawn on Vimeo.




  I have a folder in my computer called "The Fridge". It's a folder I put pieces of animation in that I might come back to in the future because I am either tired of it, couldn't get it where I wanted it, or had to stop on it for whatever reason. This piece of animation is something I had to stop on before I really wanted to. I animated this in about a day-- it's an old character design of a short story I've been working on for a while. I was just test driving the design, so it's nothing spectacular. Just something rough and dirty, because I can't show anything I've been doing the last months or so!
  In other news Disney has been a blast so far! As usual I can't say much except that I think everyone is going to be pleasantly surprised by the next few films from Disney! Things are definitely heading in the right direction!

matt you are going to be the next james baxter. seriously. at 25 or 26 or whatever it is you are, to be the quality of work youre doing...you are going to lead this industry into where it needs to go. i think so anyway. and i think disney is crazy for not having found you sooner.

Dude I have been follwing your blog ever since i started animation school. I am always thrilled and inspired when i see your work! Yeah i agree with Tim above, Disney is crazy for not having found you sooner. You're the next generation of young animators. Take charge.

Matt...I'm really happy for you!!! it's what you've wanted and here you are...I never thought 2D would suffer the fate everyone thought it would...it's too ingraned in not only us as artists but in the eyes, hearts and minds of the consumers who thrive on it...best of luck and I really look forward to what's upcoming!

Cool man, I didn't doubt you'd make him feel very much his own character (as per a previous comment made in passing) nice to see what direction you had in mind!

Can't wait for you to see Presto and Wall-E.

wow, I didn't realize your were my age. I figured you were older, judging by your work. Very cool animation. One thing I've noticed about your animation is that it always has super smooth slow-ins and outs and very nice arcs. It's hard to tell playing compressed on vimeo to frame-by frame, so I'll just ask: Are your 'slows' a bit longer than typical. Do your charts have thirds, fourths, fifths? Anyway, great timing contrast in your animations. Nice work.

Patrick Semple said...

hey just want to say this blog is amazing . such a gold mine. i was wondering if you could do a post on how to plan a pan or even how to do a handrawn character over a 3d moving camera. Anything would be cool.

EL GRANDE said...

Great weight man. I can really feel it. Good choice for the cut as well. It's great to see the full motion and then personalize it a little more solidly with a tighter shot of the character.

Sweet blog,
Joe y Elio
