Elephant action

How awesome would this have been last year when we were doing our group film about an elephant. Hahah oh well it's still very cool the school provided us with an elephant to draw AND a lion of about 9 months old too.
This is me being very excited but scared also haha. It's a big animal, but he moved so gently with so many people around. Very beautiful animal. Anna touched his tongue haha.

Working Story reel

I'm handing this in tomorrow as my working progress.
The sound effects are stand in ones for now as I haven't recorded actual people yet, some sounds are missing still and some just need to be changed because they're really lame right now. But yeah.....I hope you enjoy it despite.
It's still my working reel however so things might change again still after this version.

Champion Dreams 2??? For the DS


Aaron has just informed me about a new Nintendo DS game where you have to raise a horse and ride it just like the Gem of my life Champion Dreams!!!! AND...........I just checked out the link Aaron gave me:

........and it would appear that Ubisoft has taken one of the characters of Champion Dreams (the American girl Ginger) and made her the main character of this game. Something I found brilliant about the screenshots on this link, were they probably have the same person translating this game into English as Champion Dreams, cause they're still making hilarious mistakes:

hahahah.......oh man. This is going to be my new favourite game I can tell. One of the things I didn't like about the PC version of Champion Dreams was the controls for when you had to clean the horse. How I wished it could be on my Ds and I could clean that horse Nintendogs style. And now they have granted my wildest dream!!!! Hahahahaha oh boy.....

Oh man...I just went here:

and read up on the PC version of their "new" Pippa Funnel game and guess what. It's just Champion Dreams repackaged. You can't fool me Ubisoft! I am one of the 2 people in the planet who bought the game. Maybe I should buy it to see if they fixed all the glitches I have previously complained about.
But I am looking forward to the DS version...and I am very serious when I say that haha.

Film Stuffs

Some rough character rotations and colour choices. I'm going to work on effects to make the peach look fuzzy and the apple shiny!!!
I like the idea of colour linework but I'm still working on getting a nice shadow effect as well. I'll have to wait and see what looks best when I work more on the layouts. I want to get some texture aspect in there rather than just flat colours like the ones I'm working with for my leica reel.

I will be pulling things together more over the next couple weeks.

Why PomerErica?

So why did I call this blog PomerErica's World...because of my unhealthy obsession with Pomeranians!!!

This is Tigger with her summer haircut. She was my dog for many years and one of the sweetest little Pom's. She passed away the summer of first year animation. I always felt bad for not being home for that...but life must be lived...or cloned. I wish I could clone her, I really do. I could have like 5 or 6 of her running around hahahah. That would be my dream come true.

I'm not sure of why I thought of her today but I thought I would share her with you.

My blog exploded

I was just adding some links when I accidentally deleted some code which made my blog explode into an array of words.
It was quite frightening. I made a new blog and compared the code to find out what happened and I managed to fix it. This incident only reminds me why I didn't continue on with Computer Science at University.

Little Big on Youtube

Our 3rd Year Animation group film project Little Big is now up on Youtube. The orignal concept was thought up by Anna Gopin. We worked long and hard on this film, but there's still a glitch or 2 here and there, but we got the whole thing coloured and composited. It turned out to be over 6 min and we just about died making it...but in the end I think all the struggles were worth it.

I have to thank Aaron White for teaching us how to colour and composite it and Chantelle Tokarz for doing the sound.

There's still a couple of glitches that we should get around to fixing at some point.

Our characters just chattin up a storm. Aaron is "Sassy Swashbuckler" and I'm "Elrica of Pomerania". So geeky....but so much fun. Edit... his character's name is Zombie Swashbuckler. haha
