I found inspiration from a wolf mask, and I thought it might be appropriate for the slaughter scene. LRRH takes on a whole new persona. She's kind of hardcore, not one to mess with.
Hello! This is my first post on Hitrecord, discovered it on the weekend and just had to do my rendition of Fred.
I wanted him to kind of look like a toy, as the story reminded me of a kids poem, and I liked the idea of him wearing a hat to try to hide his quirks, but they just burst out the top anyway. This is a polished version, but I'll post some rough sketches of him in other views, and without the hat.
The cosmetics did it, but were disappointed.
It just wasn't all it was cracked up to be after all.
The goal of this tiny story is ...
A quick one while listening to "Yes, we're sinking" by eaneikciv which I heard from brookeduckart 's "raindrops (reMIX-02) animation . Lovely records which I kinda fell deeply in love with. haha
She said I'm heartless, so I ripped my chest open to prove her wrong.
See? In your face, bitch!
Sometimes I think with my eyes closed.
I see flashes of light and imagine the are synapses in my brain
Firing away with an idea.
Like a cartoon character with...
Update: Sadly, I lost a lot of my work on this due to a faulty drive. So mad, and so sad... So this is what it is, as-is, until I find time to return to it. I really loved where I was going with this piece, so I plan on returning to it eventually (maybe for my 500th Record?) In the meantime, anyone else is of course more than welcome to reMIX and/or continue it yourself!
So, this was my 100th RECord! And I wanted it to be special, so I put a lot of work into a BIG animation idea to complete for it…
However, a couple snags in animating and execution = the full animation took a lot longer than I thought. Time is always the hottest variable with animating, so no big surprise here, but I do have a couple other items/RECords that I want to upload on hitRECord while I am completing this animation, so, my 100th RECord is just another sneak peek of my progress so far and “to be continued…” This low-res, so I am sorry for the grainy quality and the pacing chops here and there, just keep in mind that the full-quality piece is a lot smoother.
The animation idea spiraled-off of Mirtle’s “raindrops” illustration (recently Featured) as well as time I spent diving deeper into Mirtle’s impressive, and completely inspiring, collection of work. We all adore Mirtle’s Illustrations, which goes without saying, and I think what is so captivating about each illustration is that they are so damn delicate while being executed with such strength (and I hope my animation can echo that.) The pieces have this wondering doodle quality but unlike doodles - that seem almost lost – these illustrations decide to create their own map and their adventures just screamed at me to be animated.
I also have fallen in love with eaneikciv’s “Yes, We're Sinking” audio RECord, and it came to mind as I was swimming through Mirtle’s work. Hence, the concept was born. It just swallowed me up. I had to begin working on it.
Pheew! That was a lot of rambling, but I hope I am making sense. I hope you enjoy the animation so far. It will continue it, and will carry the lil’ raindrop girl through a few more Mirtle-inspired adventures/worlds.
Saw this little bit by JGrimm, and I just thought of this piece.
The little story reminds me of something hopeful and happy being melted away, broken down. So I had some bright colors fading away, streaming away to the bottom, and the colors at the bottom are a little duller and everything.
Yup, there ya go.
