^ This is GREAT! Awesome work.
Flash Tutorial on how I made backgrounds.
Jon tron and PBG.
Also a really long blog post about my experiences with 9gag and memes.
I am so sorry about you having to deal with 9gag. A couple years ago the site did actually have original content. These days it's all copy and paste memes with a joke you've heard a thousand times.
I must say though, I actually really liked the Creepy Thom Yorke comic. The design for him was fantastic. Nothing against your original idea for it, but I think that since you were using the song lyrics having Yorke in made it perfect. I wish that the song's music video was what you made.
I appreciate that you actually read it. Its kind of a long read, and took forever to write to keep it objective and not whiny or bitter.
I don't hate 9GAG or the people run it. I don't like that all that much for personal experiences; I mostly don't like them because I don't like myself, if that make sense? I should've been smarter, and its more my fault. And its hard to not stay bitter when you put 30+ hours of your life into things, and you're not even rewarded for it. With the idea of compensation, they offered a "sorry'.
They wanted me to do things, but they never gave me a direction or forethought into letting me know what they wanted. And kept okaying pre-production stages, and then waited to a later stage of the process to make changes they should've done in earlier.
With the Thom Yorke comic, if you're main goal of the comic is to portray Thom Yorke in a way his fans would like; that should have been note one. Not revision four. I don't know if its their inexperience with working with freelancers, but I'm very happy I didn't go further with them.
Especially after finding out that their other original content was Happy Panty Land.
On an unrelated note; legs!
Doing that draw yourself in art styles people suggest thing on Tumblr. The only one I got so far was Megas XLR.
--- Update From New Post Merge ---
Oh, you're doing that too? I got a few myself. Although one request I got was a little... difficult. I'm still trying to figure out how to draw it. lol
You really did capture the styles well~
Makes me wish my tablet worked.
I'm still trying to work on the 'draw yourself as an Avenger' because I'm not.. Avenger material. lol For lack of better words.
This is a pretty nice milestone for me while working on ANIMEME. Up to this point I had only created and animated templates with mouth and slight facial animation, nothing too impressive or exciting. Yea, the main episodes would be made up of prominently my work, but again they're just lip syncing so it wasn't all too exciting.
I started adding more to these starting with a previous Bad Time compilation episode. I mostly tweaked a few things like the character reading Hunger Games before talking about how comparing the books to the movies will cause a bad time; or when he mentions transformers the next transition would be a parody of the Transformers scene transitions with the symbols.
Not every joke comes out the way I personally conceive them. I usually get an note back from the high up to change things. Originally I animated the Friend's joke to end with Forever Alone siting on the Friend's couch crying as "I'll be there for you" plays. Then the lights go out. Instead we went with the more on the nose joke with the DVD's.
But, for your viewing pleasure, here's an animated gif of the deleted/alternate scene!
When I'm not working on AniMeme, and when I'm pushing back Failing Upward I am working on a music video. Its super low budget, has fast deadline and is my least liked genre aside from Country, rap. I'm not huge on the concept, but money is money at the moment. I'm sure this will be that this video is going to be that video that people pull up from my past.
The top is the revised storyboard to final look of the shot, and the second is a really cheaply animated girl dancing. Instead of even FLASH animated it, I just colored the image in photoshop and warped it in After effects to give off the impression her hips are wiggling.
Do you still do commissions? I'm extremely sorry that the last time you PM'd me I didn't respond but now I have all my money in order and I'd really, really appreciate it if we could try to strike something up again.
I just want a character portrait drawn.
