Animated A-Z: Kiting

Quite a cute and simple one for this letter, apparently there aren’t many adjectives beginning with K! So here’s my 11th letter, K for Kite.

I wanted to try and get this looking slightly realistic with the string getting slack as the kite loses hight. It’s quite subtle but I think it works well! I only used a couple of effects on this, Wave Warp for the strings, and Gaussian Blur for the cloud.

It took me a while to figure out an idea for this one, but once I decided and got into the animation it didn’t really take me long at all, about two hours. I’ve been doing a lot more animation work in the office, so hopefully I’ll learn even more tricks along the way!

As always, thanks for reading! I’m always eager to hear any feedback on my blog, some animating tips or just general chit chat, so Tweet me if you fancy on @stephhh.

Animated A-Z: Jellyfish

This is probably the best animation I’ve done, but coincidentally it’s probably the least ‘alphabet like’ of any of the letters! It’s J for Jellyfish!

So I’m so pleased with this animation. Bonus points if you’ve already spotted the two cheeky fish! The hardest part of this animation was getting it to loop, but I managed it in the end. This is one of the few animations I’ve done where I only worked on one idea the entire time, and it came out how I imagined!

I used two effects on this, Wave Warp and Glow. It took quite a bit of fiddling around to get it flowing nicely, but I’m so happy with how it turned out. So nice and floaty!
