Fish Expiriment

Here's an experimental fish animation I've been playing with. Both are nested loops. The big one swims a straight line, and the little one has a motion guide steering him around.

Nice. Nice. Nice.

How are you at working with OPA's?

Other People's Assets.

By the way, I, too, was told once that I would go to the moon. Sometimes I appear so out of it that my mother tells me I look like I'm on the moon...

Oh Namo, this is really fun!

Thanks, strayg, Maybe it's my years at the tropical fish shop coming back to haunt me.

Boodababy, forgive my ignorance, but I don't know what Other People's Assets means. (There's a lot I don't know)

Hey thanks, Mari,
I didn't know you looked at this blog. You're the cookie crafter, right?

Thanks Linda,
I had no clue these would be such a hit. I almost didn't publish them.

Assets: the artwork, illustrations, symbols ... all the material (some of it already completely created).

I do a lot of animation work for people who can hand me illustrations and very rough story boards, but couldn't begin to animate.

I think this is something that could be marketed. People in nursing homes, etc., could have fun animations like this to look at.

Hi Boodababy,
So far I've only animated my own stuff. You must be a pro if people are throwing assignments at you like that.

Hi Stray g.
Thanks for the suggestion. I'm flattered that you think it's marketable. :)

Nicely animated fish. You might want to experiment with moving the crosshair that hooks up to the guide line so it's at the front of the fish, just a thought.
