Summer Time by Soulnova Summer Time by Soulnova
It took me until 3.30am to finish this, spent the whole Sunday working on it to make the deadline. DONE!

Made as contest entry at ee-motes -> ee-motes.deviantart.com/journa…

Frame count: 165
Used layers: 288
Unused layers (dropped ideas):
43
Time spent: ~20-25 hours?

Was definitely fun to try out animating waves and practice angles with the mechanical arm.

Also needed quite some time to get the sand done the way I wanted to. A few things might need a bit more polish, but I think for the time I had it turned out pretty great. =P

With stunning, fluid, animation utilizing all three dimensions, Summer Time by Soulnova is something that you'll have to watch multiple times to find all the little details scattered throughout that make this such an awesome piece.

I'm glad you like it! Yeah, those two took the biggest effort, I think. Though every part (except sand castle) took their fair share of time. =P

I spend a full Sunday, that I had to spend on the animation, because that was just before the deadline of the contest I made it for! :lmao:

But besides that, I commute a lot every day, and I find at least 2 hours to do something on the laptop. :D

immediately caught my eye. As a former competitive volleyball player, I've been on the giving & receiving end of that spike. WONDERFUL! the sand-castle building, the waves, the diners under the umbrella, so much going on. great job!

Heh, how convenient then, to know from a volleyball player that this part is well enough animated. :D Had great fun figuring out how to animate fast objects, it seems kinda abstract at first, but as we all know, practice makes (almost) perfect! :la: And the "to the face" part, but that's just the humor bit. =P

I'm glad you like it and thanks for the feedback! :la:

I've already written down a few or kept them in my inbox, e.g. other emoticons I saw on devWATCH I wanna make myself & improve them. Those will still take some time as well, but not 20+ hours, instead probably max. 4 hours or so. =P

I am taking a day off tomorrow so I can finish some private business, then animate in peace! Silly Paddle La
