I have been meaning to put my "motion monsters" into a collected piece. I couldn't figure out exactly how I wanted to do this... and then I found Ryan Patrick's tune "Ba Da Dop Bop Bop" and it just sort of clicked for me. So I made this edit.


::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


[Correction, it straddled Nov/Dec, and Resources galore! I did my best to add them all, there were a couple that refused to add to my resources so I connected to RECorders' portrait pics then. Please let me know if I missed anyone! This was a major organizational exercise too - keeping track of resources - pheeeeeeeeew!]



Full album of monsters here - http://www.hitrecord.org/albums/8068


And if you decide to make some of your own, or reMix mine further, please
add them to this collaboration - http://www.hitrecord.org/records/1062835

A couple snapshots of some taxidermied animals that I think have a lot of character. I'd love to see these photos used as resources/references to illustrate life back into these glass-eyed stuffed animals.

I keep imagining that these two are flirting, and sort of bashfully turning their heads after they bumped wings. I keep seeing the front one blinking coyly.


Either that, or they are in the middle of a fight where they are turning from each other in stubborness.

Not sure how this can be used on hitRECord, but I never know - you guys are so crazy creative!



For my "Intro to Metals" class, I made an Eadweard Muybridge tribute in Metals. I constructed a Copper Zoetrope and pierced Brass slides with his "Galloping Horse." This is a Stop Motion I made with the completed work.

Making a snow effect over the characters (to match the pacing and fluffiness of the snow falling in the footage) was a huge challenge on this one, but I think I pulled it off. What do you think? I also had more time today so I was able to add sound effects and dialogue to further the narrative.

I think this story would be really fun if we kept the animation to drawings that are more crude child-like renders. I did this little test with a chalkboard sort of aesthetic, but the whole animation could be child-like drawings in different mediums on different surfaces such as: markers on lined notepaper, finger paintings on newsprint, chalk on a sidewalk, crayon on coloring book pages, etc.

[UPDATE: I got pulled into 3 large off-site projects for a bit, and I can't finish this off for a few... that said, it doesn't mean that other RECorders can't take a stab at adding to this and/or finishing it ;^) Go for it!]


Here's a low-res in-progess peek #2.


I am almost done, but there are a few things I want to fix up and I am thinking about adding a couple of fun elements to play outside the borders (we will see, not 100% sure on that yet) and of course I am working on a better ending transition and an ending scene, as well as the credit treatments.


What do you think so far?

I am still learning After Effects and that is why I am doing a series of in-a-day "Motion Monsters" (Motion-tracking fun and character animating exercises) to develop my skillz, as well as challenge myself to create QUICKLY! Very therapeutic for an otherwise perfectionist that could work on a single project FOREVER and never finish it.

The idea is that I will create a mini scene and animation using characters and footage from the site, but I only allow myself one day to do so. I am going to do my best to do at least 5 a week for awhile. These will all be fairly rough and they will still need a lot of work, but to keep the "in-one-day" personal challenge I have to let go and move on.

After I get through more monsters, and feel more comfortable with the program, I then plan to return to all of these to further refine. But in the meantime I hope other RECorders have fun reMIXing and using these as resources.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

[UPDATE: I think I did fairly well keeping up with the frequency of this project - 15 monsters! - and then I had a freelance project hit down. I learned a lot in this challenge. I encourage others to try this sort of this out. Continue the collection even!]

Happy Holidays christopher.harn! I was your Secret Santa, so this Motion Monster is for you. Hope you have a fabulous Holiday Season!


P.S. Someone needs to turn christopher.harn's "Carnival Tequila" (852556) track into a Holiday Song. Not necessarily Christmas, I was thinking a tune moreso about the drinking and celebrating type; a general seasons greetings and/or a New Years tune. DO IT!

When I eventually make a final version of this animation: I am going to continue to tweak the lighting, I will touch up the track matte a bit when the man walks thru, and I think I will add more vector props (more trash, bottles, and mess to the scene.)

Make your own Monster Mashup! and contribute your monster creations to this collaboration (1073929).


This is a "Monster Mashup" MASTER sheet (1076552). Which contains ALL the parts' sheets together as well as all the RESOURCE numbers are now noted in blue for ease of resourcing the exact parts you use in your monster creations. If a part does not have a number next to it then it was an illustration I did myself specifically for that sheet and all you need to do is resource this MASTER sheet (1076552) or the parts' sheet you are working from.


Thank you for being through in your resourcing, it makes it easier for the hitRECord crew to connect the dots if your monster eventually ends up in an end-product, as well as it gives the parts' artists the heads up to check out a reMIX they inspired.


This Community RULES!!!


[[UPDATE/CORRECTION: the insect parts with the number 78556 next to them is an album number, if you need to cite individually then the legs are 544693 and the wings are 544683.]] Let me know if you find any other issues.
