Make me up..

As part of a new project I am sketching for an animation, I am studying the quote "Nothing of me is original, I am the combined effort of everyone Iv ever known" and I hope to make a little animation over christmas (although lack of any animation software means I will have to be creative in doing so!) Anyway these are just ideas for creating a morphing character who will change with the aid of plastic surgery/airbrushing/make up to become someone who is indeed no longer original.

The sketches

Somehow in my busy student schedule I find the time to actually do some drawing, I usually
do them when I'v totally lost all inspiration for a brief so I get distracted and go back to drawing
what I love most, fashion drawings! Bad habits tend to develop from drawing from photographs so please excuse my proportions. Anyway hopefully I'm finally getting more images up on here so my blog will actually have lots of drawing on it, which would be fantastic. And Hi to my 11 followers!

The final one

So the final animation has been done, although the title may be misleading, as this is indeed my final animation but there is no sound. Which is a shame because my very talented sister Zoe composed a piece especially for the animation, which was amazing, so hopefully I will be able to upload the sound separately or find an actual version of the animation complete with sound! The final DVD is what I'm proudest of, is complete with DVD menu with images from the animation, is only compatible with Macs unfortunately. So the animation took a total of 5 weeks from start to finish, 150 drawings for all of 30 seconds. Although the film is short and shaky at times, I am pleased I completed my first animation and I look forward to doing many more (hopefully longer). So the story is that this would be a fashion film for a website or advertising purposes, and I based it on an Alexander Mcqueen dress from his 2007 spring/summer collection, in which the dress is constructed entirely from flowers. And the candle part was just part of my experimentation (see earlier post) so overall I hope to be posting a few more animations on here, so I would love to hear your thoughts!
