Tablet get!

2008-12-13 16:28:37 by MetalMaverick

Well, went to check the mail today and sure enough there was a brand spankin' new shiney tablet there waiting for me. When I got the news I was so absolutely stoked that I never come up with a decent response. Now I have it and I couldn't be more thrilled. It even came with a few stickers as well. This is easily the best Christmas gift I've ever received. Thanks a ton Tom, you rock!

As exciting as all this is, it also means I have quite a bit of work ahead of me. The addition of a tablet has made me rethink a lot about what I'm gonna do. For starters, I really wanna play around with the idea of a new drawing style. "OMG! No more bobbleheadz!?" is what I imagine some of you may be thinking. Honestly though, I doubt I'd ever truely get rid of those, but I would like to try something new so we'll see what happens.

One idea I have in mind is perhaps a series of small cartoons involving an old photoshop manipulation I did a few years ago. The picture is on the bottom and I have a few more like it at my website.

The other idea that I've had for some time and was gonna do anyway, except now the look of it is most definately going to change. I'm planning to make a Transformers movie roughly around 45 minutes in lenth give or take. Yea I know, more transformers. Thing is, this is kinda what Transformers Mediocrity was leading up to. What's nice is that now with this shiney new tablet, I can do something I've never done before with a flash. STORYBOARD!

This project will by far be quite time consuming so I may not submit much of anything for a while, but it's something I've really wanted to do for quite some time so I'm gonna go for it. I'll post a little something later when I have something to show. Until then, I've got a new toy that is in need of attention. Later!

Tablet get!

45 minutes? Good luck with that! And congratulations!

MetalMaverick responds:

it's a rough estimate, it'll be as long or as short as it needs to be. I'd rather it didn't get too long, but what's most important is that it's done right, so if it has to be a bit longer to make it work than so be it.

congratz on the tablet, but 45 minutes!!? that'll be tough, especially since kirbhoper had enough trouble handling only 14 minutes of animation

MetalMaverick responds:

Well like him I don't plan to submit it all as one peice. It'll be broken into parts. However when it's all said and done I'd like to at least make the whole thing downloadable as one big movie.

Congratulations on getting a tablet!!! I can't wait to see what you make with it, I'm surprised that you're making something as long as 45 minutes (I have no idea how you'd stay motivated making something that long), but if you want to then thats great.

PS. About the dog, I VANT VUN NOW!!!

does this mean you'll finally draw something in another art style?

MetalMaverick responds:

I'm planning to. But again, I'd never get rid of the big headed dudes forever. So long as it still creeps people out, I'll continue to draw'em.

I still havn't recieved my tablet ):

MetalMaverick responds:

Yea but you're in Australia, so it's probably gonna take a little longer. It'll be worth the wait though that's for damn sure. It's so shiney!

I guess this means no more pencil and line tool for you then huh? Are you planning frame by frame stuff now?
It'l be cool to see a style progression. Thats what I call it. It sounds more optimistic than just "Change" big bad change. lol

MetalMaverick responds:

Haven't used the pencil tool in years. Never got the results with it I'd like when I just had a mouse. I pretty much just stuck with the line tool after a while. I'm gonna play around with this as see what works best for me.

As for frame by frame, I don't know if I'll ever go full on frame by frame. It's pretty time consuming, so I'll probably use a combo of FBF and tweening.
