Hi everyone! Welcome to my site and thank you for reading! =)

I'm really happy that I can finally have my own blog! I have friends telling me not to start one and that I have no life if I start it. Hah! I find it very true! But I will not say it for sure. Cause if there's something you'll like to share and you want it to be for everyone, blogging will be the best! XD You can share it out this way... convenient! Agree?!

Anyway, welcome again and I hope you'll find your part to do one too... chiaoz!

Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes) - Edison Lighthouse Edison Lighthouse - Love Grows Lyrics She ain't got no money Her clothes are kinda funny Her hair is kinda wild and free Oh, but Love grows where my Rosemary goes And nobody knows like me She talks kinda lazy And people say she she's crazy And her life's a mystery Oh, but Love grows where my Rosemary goes And nobody knows like me There's something about her hand holding mine It's a feeling that's fine And I just gotta say She's really got a magical spell And it's working so well That I can't get away I'm a lucky fella And I've just got to tell her That I love her endlessly Because Love grows where my Rosemary goes And nobody knows like me There's something about her hand holding mine It's a feeling that's fine And I just gotta say She's really got a magical spell And it's working so well That I can't get away I'm a lucky fella And I've just got to tell her That I love her endlessly Because Love grows where my Rosemary goes And nobody knows like me Fadeout: It keeps growing every place she's been And nobody knows like me If you've met her, you'll never forget her And nobody knows like me La la la- believe it when you've seen it Nobody knows like me

My bouncing ball...

it has been a long time since i really did any 3D primary animations, and i can definitely say that it's not easy. well, not as easy as 2D animations if you're wondering. in 2D, you can just pick up a pencil and draw what you think is roughly right and if you find that there's a mistake, you can always erase and draw back again, cause it's only that one page that you're drawing on. but when it comes to 3D, you have to adjust four groups or more to get the exact result that you want. there are the Translation, Rotation, Scale Up and Scale Down. every adjustment will make different results. phew* so imagine how many times do i have to move to get what i want.

and just this few days, my Supervisor asked me to train on a simple bouncing ball. i was so embarrassed when he said that the ball doesn't look like it's bouncing and that my timing's all off! @.@"' NOoOOoooooOOo!!! so, i practiced and adjusted for more that a few hundred times to get the end result. and here it is... feel free to comment about it.

sorry andu! i have to say this.. it kind sticks to the floor alot. and comes to quite a sudden stop at the end. but i think excellent touch with the change in ball size when it bounces.

OMG! Haaaaaaaaaaaaa-NE! What happened to your....bouncing ball. HAHAHAHA! Ehemmm,....anyway. Let the senior comment la >D.

Direction of the 1st stretch dropping from the top is wrong ler.U stretch the ball too much when the ball is bouncing quite low. Reduce the stretchiness as it gets lower. Because this will determine the weight of the ball.Use a basketball and drop it and check the last few bounce, doesn't stretch alot. You make so wobbly lerr.

p/s: now I wonder how's your walking animation like >D

The Siren said...

hmmm. When the ball falls for the first time a bit too cepat la >< maybe if you make your whole animation slower as well then can see the bounciness of the ball. you get what I mean? :) Keep up the good work!

CarAndu said...

lol! thanks guys!

to Basil: it's a simple bouncing ball... which i was just testing it, but yea, it looks really rubbery. ehe... i'll try to to make it roll out of the screen. :D thank you!

to Evil Ducky: thank you senior. and you're right about the stretch and squash... they're all the same size actually. EEK! my bad! will fix it!

P.s: no, you're not going to get to see my walk cycle! blek!

CarAndu said...

thanks Byen! i get what you mean!!! mmm... so first, i slow down the fall and then make sure that the size of the bounce is different, and drag the ending. got it! thank you Sifu! hehe...
