Dropping an animated gif your way. This one shows the arrival of an armored Marvan Heron through some sort of teleportation method. This actual shot doesn’t show up in the video, but I’m not ready with the actual shot, so I threw a background behind the animation just so it looks decent.
I like the way this turned out. I created the “appearing” effect by first drawing the full figure of the Heron, then slowly erasing segments with each frame. I then reversed the order of the frames so that the figure is appearing rather than disappearing. Let me know if you think it looks Ok. The idea is to have it look like a three dimensional character appearing out of a two-dimensional “slice” in space.
I’m working on the last minute of the video, and hoping it doesn’t take me much longer. I’m kicking around the idea of posting the rough video on the blog before I clean it up and post it on YouTube. I’ll see how I feel about that.
