Everything looks better in Slow-Mo!

Hi folks, how are you?

This week, what about some slow-motion?
With those few more cuts, the flying kick scene is over,  I am ready to move on to the next parts.
But first, let’s take a look!

 

I didn’t use the 3D model for Gaya this time because I wanted this special shot to be in 2D. I don’t really have any reason for this though.
After finishing it, I did realise that it would have been faster using 3D for almost the same render haha.

Ok, that’s it for today, thanks for watching and have a nice week!
See you next monday, same time, same place!!

Fire Effect test 2

Hi folks, how are you?

Today, I prepared a few fire effect tests.
In the first scene you probably saw some flames but, there is a cut  I couldn’t be satisfied with.
I am talking about the big fireball coming from the sky and the flames in Shin’s hand. (Here’s the video)
And so, I decided to make a better version:

Now I have moving flames which can be used and edited (movement, color, shape…) as much as I need to fit in any scene.
Well, that’s it guys, hope you liked it, thanks for watching, have a nice week and see you on next monday!

“Stay close to me if you don’t want to get hurt.”

Hi folks, how are you?

As promised last week, today is the last part from scene 2.
Let’s watch it:

That’s it for the first time our heroes meet.
As I told you last week, I made some camera changes.
I actually realized that my camera were almost always the same, and so I decided to add a longer plan with a top view, instead of many close shots.
It adds a bit more of life to the scene, thanks to the background.

Sooo, that’s it for today, thanks for watching, have a nice week and see you on next monday!

 

StoryBoard (Scene 0003)

Hi folks, how are you?

I realised that I haven’t uploaded the next part of the storyboard yet.
In this page, we will enter scene number 3.
But let’s have a look:

bb_story_board_v3b

So, as you noticed, part of it is already done.
(For those who want to see preview videos, don’t miss the animation galerie here)
Anyway, I can’t wait to start scene three,
because Gaya and her father are going to show off for the first time in history *A*)!!
Finally some action.
For those of you who follow this making of for a certain time,
you will see the evolution from the test on Gaya’s kick I created a few months ago,
and the actual “awesome flying kick” she’s gonna perform for you guys^^
(Notice that the cameras are probably going to change, this board is more a guide than a real storyboard.)
By the way, scene two is over as I am writing those lines.
I changed the last plans but we’ll talk about it next week so stay tuned ^_-)

That’s it for today folks! Thanks for watching and see you next monday!!

Hi folks, how are you?

Today I prepared a special effect which I am going to use many times in the story.
Let’s take a look, we’ll review it after:

So, this is actually a transition effect.
But why do I need such a colorful transition you might think XD
If it’s the case, just know that in this story, there is not only one world, but “at least” two.
This other world is called: RealDream! I know what you’re thinking, “what an obvious name!” right? Well, wait and see ^^

That’s it for today, thanks for watching, have a nice week and see you on next Monday!

How to avoid the fight (by Kyu)

Hi folks, how are you?

Yesterday I had a day off so I choosed to work a bit more on the anime.
And as a result, here comes last week’s progress:

I don’t even understand how he escaped the fight… Kyu is such a stupid fellow right? haha…nothing to do with me!
Anyway, it’s been a long time since I’ve had some work already done for the upcoming week.
So here goes the PREVIEW!!!
Next week on EIEN The Animation, an awesome Special Effects is coming!!
(or a new character…depends on how I feelXD)
Ok, hope you liked it, thanks for watching, have a nice week and see you on next monday!

Shin (choku?)

Hi Folks, how are you?

Today let’s simply take a look at the (進捗/ shinchoku) “progression” of scene number 2!
This is the first time you’ll see young Shin, hope you’ll like it:

Wow guys, as it goes on, I, myself can’t wait to show you the following parts! What’s wrong with me?! hahaha!
Anyway, in order to make the collision more powerfull, I am going to add more images in the plan where the camera gets closer to Shin.
By doing so, the collision will be seen two times, but fast enough so you won’t get the feeling of seeing it two times.
For those of you who don’t get what I mean… No worries! Explanations are coming next week, so stay tuned!
Or you can watch some videos of Jackie Chan explaining how he likes to cut his shots (always better to learn from the master among the masters!)

That’s it for today folks! Thanks for watching and see you next monday!!
