Here’s some rough animation from the music video I’ve been working on. It’s ghost of Spoonboy! He’ll glow and look translucent when it’s all done, right now he just looks like a floating dude.
I still have to do lip sync, that’s why his mouth is looking all slack-jawed yokel for a lot of it. And the guitar neck needs to be shorter; I’m used to playing the bass so I unconsciously draw all guitars the size of bass guitars. It’s like how I draw everyone with big feet, and then remember “Oh yeah, the rest of the world doesn’t have clown feet like me.”
I tried to make the body bob to make him feel bouncy and alive, no pun intended. Guitar strumming is a pretty quick movement, and I was able to get away with (key phrase: get away with) a loop of three drawings per strum. The up stroke, down stroke, and then an exaggerated “accent” drawing, in between:
Or two drawings with an ease in between, cushioning the up stroke.
In case anyone was wondering.
Getting away with stuff!
