I'm trying to learn how to create logos
Which one would you pick if you were starting a clothing company?
Here are the logos that I made
Any feedback would be lovely
Main question: Hey does anyone know any good hand/finger anatomy tutorials on youtube or books I get read because i find it really hard to envision the human hand in a 3D space..... or is drawing hands & fingers something that comes naturally with practice off references?
My OLD Work/ My thoughts
I just looked through my old work and started loling out loud. the script, story and art were premature, I do love the way they are, so innocent xD
2012 Art (before I learned how to draw) 2014 art (after I learned anatomy)
That's kind of crazy, I love the passion i had for animation back in the day. No drawing experience yet such drive to make an anime xD I still remember when i was scared to post the first episode of "Kriesis" on newgrounds because i thought it blowed. Good times. I learned a lot from it anyway.
one of my favourite scenes from Kriesis ep 2 was this, made me laugh when i watched it. it's so anime but I did it like a noob xD kinda glad i left it unfinished.
K-OS is still in the works don't worry I haven't forgotten about it. The pictures on the right are actually stills taken from the episode. I've been progressing slowly on the episode because of other obligations (particularly university), and I still have a fight scene to animate :):):):), Oh how I've missed drawing fights. K-OS should be done sometime next year xD I'll give release date probably in the middle of 2015. Something I really want to do is make an anime styled opening for it. But I'll start considering that after I finish the first episode. besides I have no anime opener music for it yet.
.... now that i think about it.... i like the look of the guy wearing purple in the top left corner of that pic.... i might remaster him and add him to the series
I haven't animated in about a month and I have been wasting so much time doing nothing productive. I think it's what happens when you let stupid things influence the way you think. Oh well you live and you learn. I started animating again and I will keep animating until K-OS episode 1 is complete so it's still just about half way done but here's another pic from my anime.
seems like my art has improved once again xD I swear if i stop animating for a whole year, I will be drawing pictures like artegram on deviant art.... ok maybe not that good because my coloring skills suck.... but yh. K-OS will definitely be out sometime next year.
On a side note, I've been following RSD instructors vids for some time now.... anybody here know about RSD Julien? xD that guy makes me laugh, I love his mental state. I wonder what will happen to him
Still working on K-OS. I have it just over half way completed... well the animation part anyway (I still need to put in the majority of sounds and get Voice Actors) I am not going to give up on it. I do have a job and I also study in university too so it's hard finding time to animate. Anyway here's another snap shot from my anime.
The character in this pic is Xen (one of the main characters) on the phone to Zayne. The first episode will be split into part 1 and 2 since the file size is already nearing 11MB. But I will try to upload the full episode onto youtube once It's done too. I feel like animating this will take forever so i've decided to reveal bits and bobs of the story through regular updates. Maybe once a week (if possible) with character art design, maybe character profiles too and brief synopsis of their story arc in K-OS. so here's a test synopsis.
The synopsis of Xen's story arc:
Xen invents a device that can hack into anything with electricity running through it using an operating system that he invented called K-OS (Killer Operating System). Xen and his friends test out a device which uses the K-OS system to evalutate it's efficacy. This device was called HVC (Havoc). During this endevour the device accidentally hacks into a government network nearby and they discover an opperation called "black Inertia" set to launch in the year 2030.
and I think i will stop it there for now. I will do a better one later.
Next update will be a character profile of someone. Next week.
I have been set back a bit by shit work hours (early mornings then late nights -_-) but now I have 2 new part time jobs with MUCH BETTER HOURS!!! yeahhh!!. Anyway I Digress
The main plot for K-OS has now been fully established. I think if i execute it properly it will be an entertaining series. Main guide for first 3 episodes has been etched into my memory. Now it's just animation and voiceactors/music/sound producers that need to be filled. I will start looking for more VA's to join when the first episode is closer to completion... meh not alot more to say... Just thought I should give a little update
anyway Enjoy your holidays
This character is Ozi, at first I made him look like me because I wanted some diversity in race in my anime plus i wasn't bothered to make a whole new character XD laziness should be a sin. Now he looks like the way he is which is MUCHH better. A friend told me to make him look like sean from street fighter a while back XD I couldn't do that because of his profession (Pharmacist... well pharmacy student 3rd year) and sean kind of looks too young.
He also said I should change Jutah but I like his look so I will keep him the way he is. besides there are alot of other characters outside my 3 main charac#ters to think about.
Finished Uni for the year... looking for a job but mean while I have some time to animate. So i can finally make some progress with K-OS. And every time I stop animating, then start again my art skills just improve a lot lol. Here's a still from the first episode. Xen topless after shower. looking out the window before yawning
Pretty basic scene.
google sketch up
So yeah I'm back for a while. I might even upload some speed arts on youtube to show you some more on how I draw. Oh and for the people still doing exams... Good luck!!!!
K-OS Episode 1 Behind the scenes test vid (don't take too seriously)
Skip to 11:08 if you want to see final product of it
Now that I got my head around video editing, I might start doing a more serious version of this every 2 weeks... just to keep my newgrounds page active while I animate the good stuff. Oh god have I've missed animating. Feels like it's stress relief from uni.
I know I'm not the best animator out there but I have improved a whole lot. I'm focusing on frame by frame human movement/interraction in this up in-coming anime.... with a sickkkkk fight scene at the end =) can't wait to animate that scene, Esitmated time for completion is around 3-4 months (don't hold me to that XD)
Let me know if you think I should do a more better edited BTS videos
K-OS is a new anime that I'm developing, it's going to be much more realistic, i'm even trying to stop myself from creating unexplained superpowers.... but you know, I still have an imagination n_n. I feel like my story writting has greatly improved since Kriesis and I will continue to improve and get better. Hopefully I can get to anime quality within a few years.
Anyways. K-OS (K Operating System) is based around student life (the main characters will either be in university or working, since I have knowledge in that area). The first few episode of K-OS is currently based around a guy called xen (AKA James shenshu, he's chinese) who creates K-OS and uses his friends (Ozi and Jutah) to test it out. I won't go into detail about what K-OS really is but this anime will be.... interesting to say the least.
I will be animating while studying in Uni, meaning that each episode will take a while to make (several months). First episode will be quite short to test this new anime style that I've worked on for so long. Other than that, there's not much more to tell, the plot and story has been written (may still make changes in the future) and.... I'm back. I'm going to hit newgrounds with a bang.
Extra info: I've been learning photoshop CS5 (which my friend gave to me) and Google sketchup (for 3d design) so backgrounds will be higher quality than before. I just hope the final swf file doesn't lag too much. My anatomy and human drawing style has improved greatly aswell..... I wonder how well I can convey realistic human emotion and interraction in this anime. Well I can't wait for the final product, it will be a fun learning experience.
Please, if you have time, check out Yuumeis work on deviant art, her online comic fisheye placebo inspired me to animate again. She's a genius in anime art. Also my friend Generations1st is starting an anime series on newgrounds too called gunfox, I have no idea on release dates but check him out too, he's a very talented voice actor and animator. I might do some animation tutorials on flash in future to test my action scripting skills (well my behavious tab skills lol) and some speed animations on my youtube page in the future
The image bellow shows some basic character designs for some of the characters from K-OS (you might notice i drew myself in as one of the characters XD)
Names from Right to left: Xen (James Shenshu), Sophy (Sophia Isa), Zayne, Mai (Mayuri Kotsuka) Amanda (Amanda pierce), Julian (haven't thought of full name yet), Al (Alden Bowman), Jutah (Jutah Vaugn), Sean (haven't thought of full name yet), Lana (Lana Aozora). There are more characters but I dont want to give away secret characters already, gotta have suspense ;)
Programs used for image: Flash 8 pro
I Hope you all are enjoying your holidays more than me, studying is so long. Merry belated christmas and a happy new year :)
Hmmm I wonder when the world is going to "end" this time in 2014
Ok so I've been out of it for a while because I've been catching up on studying and still getting use to the University of Lancashire..... studying Pharmacy :) you don't know how happy I am. This course will take up alot of time but I will still try to make time to animate my new project. So voice actors I will be needing you around Janurary times hopefully
In other news my friend is making his first 3D video game soon and asked me to design some characters for him :), when I get more information on that I'll let everyone know
he wanted me to do a black samurai and a female ninja that looked different (He didn't want too much detail on the characters so i had to simplyfy it quite a bit but here it is. let me know what you think. This helped me understand human anatomy sooooo much better.
PS. sorry about the bad quality image, I don't know how to get it to look better
I will try to be more active on newgrounds..... but no promises
