No, that is completely the wrong colour, and the things on top are berries, not flowers.

I will never know what it is.

Just got reminded of St Hildegarde and this rlly old drawing fits in with the forest theme of late, Penderecki Oak and all... (except this is so clearly the Salty Forest in Northamptonshire...)

yo your stuff is legit fantastic, nice nice work

Thankee, thankee...

Yeah, I wish I could remember the exact passage that inspired that drawing because it was o_0 amazing but like St Hildegarde is out there, and something about divine breath / inspiration (that is the etymology of the word) that really caught my imagination, and Grimes brought up St Hildegarde in an interview that was posted on that thread, and I just thought "yeah, my homegirl." Or, erm, something.

Now I really have to stop mucking about and get back to my animation project. I've become a woman obsessed. I wish I had a better tool than just Pencil (because it just will not synch to music, and won't export with music, which makes it very hard to get the drawings and the music... *together* in the way I want it to.) But I also kind of like working in very basic low-tech, it forces you to be creative to get around the limitations.

I am in SENNEN.

It is so beautiful I am surprised mine EYES have not popped out of my skull from all the looking.

This is what I see from my windows. It is HEAVEN.

Even when it rains. Especially when it rains.

I could paint this every day, the way the colours keep changing.

i love the window effect on that - that's exactly what i love about storms, when you're indoors and simultaneously feel in total awe at nature's power but also so warm and cosy.

also i only just saw the hayward gallery one upthread! lol, fantastic.

liberté, égalité, beyoncé (lex pretend), Tuesday, 24 April 2012 08:54 (2 years ago) Permalink

Indoors, with a good strong double-glazed window (window seat optional, but I has one) and a roaring fire (I has one of those two but I can't be arsed to make it go) is just about the best thing in the entire world.

Hmmm. This fire looks like a gas powered one but I can't find the off switch. If I have to go and fetch wood and kindling... LOL rustics.

3 weeks pass...

Please be kind, this is my very first attempt at animating anything.

God, it just takes forever. The song is like 4 minutes long, but it took me over a month to animate a single minute. (OK, I had many interruptions in terms of holiday, new job, etc. but still.)

It's v v rudimentary. There's a ton of more stuff I'd have liked to have added (I'd have loved for the trees in the background to move as if in the wind) but it was just too damn fiddly. I think you need a lot more patience to do animation than I've got.

Mark G, Monday, 21 May 2012 08:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

this is all digital I assume...? you wanna talk slow, I've recently embarked on a stop-motion animation project ayiyiyi

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 21 May 2012 15:51 (1 year ago) Permalink

At my current work rate doing the rest of the storyboard would take about 2 years. Which is sad coz I liked the story line.

I started it the old fashioned way, with tracing paper and ink! (the bit where the curtains blow open is hand drawn) which was actually quicker than digital but scanning it and digitising was just completely infuriating.

I can't imagine how long stop motion would take!

They have fangs, They have teeth! (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Monday, 21 May 2012 16:34 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah we've been working out the technical kinks for months, I think we have like 30 seconds of test material lol

here's the first thing I've finished in awhile

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 21 May 2012 18:34 (1 year ago) Permalink

Mayan synths! I love it!

If I'd done the animation properly (I put an image every 3 frames instead of every frame) I'd only have had 30 seconds. But I reckoned the jerkiness looked alright as it was in time with the music.

Is yr stop motion thing a music video? You might try that to stretch it out.

They have fangs, They have teeth! (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Monday, 21 May 2012 18:43 (1 year ago) Permalink

yeah I'm working with one of the other band members who's a film editor/animator, we have a dope sheet and everything. turns out I just have really complicated ideas tho lol. at this rate we will be done in 10 years

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 21 May 2012 18:46 (1 year ago) Permalink

what animation app did you use...?

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 21 May 2012 18:46 (1 year ago) Permalink

I feel really dumb now coz I didn't even know what a dope sheet was before I read that. I suppose because I'm drawing it all out rather than shooting it, I don't need to worry about camera angles and things. That sounds so complicated. Your drawings are so detailed I would love to see your animations, but I can imagine it would take forever.

I used freeware called Pencil, which I don't recommend. It's crashy as hell, it won't seem to load more than 15 seconds of animations at a time, it likes to lose layers and move things about without asking you. I ended up doing all the actual coding in TextEdit and just using it as a compiler. I then had to chuck all these 10 second blips into iMovie and add the soundtrack, and iMovie just destroys the quality - it was originally done in HD, but you can't tell that by what iMovie export. I don't think I'd do another project in Pencil, I'd like to find something more reliable. If I ever did anything again, which I'm not sure I would.

Then again, maybe I should be less ambitious and do 10 second blips that are just animations of regular drawings.

ugh that sounds pretty irritating :(

stop-motion's gonna be a lot of collaged elements for the most part, but there are some things (people/characters, primarily) that I'm going to need to draw and figure out how to animate, we'll see.

Roger Barfing (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 21 May 2012 20:40 (1 year ago) Permalink

hey beautiful art-making ilxors, i am no pixar, but if you need custom software for labor-saving on the animation, please say what would be handy, and maybe i can throw something together?

Philip Nunez, Monday, 21 May 2012 22:20 (1 year ago) Permalink

1 month passes...

Oh! I did not see your kind offer. Basically, I don't need software, I need an army of about 300 poorly paid Korean animators, or the approximation thereof.

Anyway, here is an SEA ARCH. I'm sure you know how happy SEA ARCHES make me, there was a whole thread about it once.

I HAVE THE HIRETH TODAY, REALLY BADLY.

I do not know when I will be back in Kernow and this makes me unspeakably sad. I am craving the sea so badly I can almost taste the salt on my lips.

are those salt columns? i was just reading about them

the most astonishing writer on ilx (roxymuzak), Saturday, 1 September 2012 20:38 (1 year ago) Permalink

No, they're just granite that's been really really eaten away by wind/wave action. That's near Lands End, which is sticking right out into the Atlantic with nothing to take the blow, so the granite ends up getting carved into these really strange shapes that look like odd pillars.

Wow, I wasn't aware of that area at all but the columns look very cool. Easter Island meets the Stone Forest of the Lena River.

Basically, I can't stop reading Fuck Yeah Fluid Dynamics and learning all about the crazy psychedelic swirling patterns generated by, like, Karman Vortex Streets and stuff.

(I made a little mistake in the physics at the bottom of the flow but I'm just going to have to live with that.)

Tomorrow I'm going to try to draw Kelvin-Heimholtz clouds which are the most trippy and insane weather formations that look like fractal waves.

These things break my brain, like, the physics behind them is so simple and yet WOW happens with them...

The Kelvin Helmholtz Instability (White Chocolate Cheesecake), Saturday, 15 September 2012 21:29 (1 year ago) Permalink

The Karman Vortex Street is the pattern of oscillating turbulence formed by a flow of wind or fluid over a stable object.

love the cymru painting - love how it turns something so solid in the stone into a building that's so crooked and unstable-seeming that it could be made out of bits of wood...

Orkney is full of mountains and sea lochs and megaliths and sea arches and I think I love it here, with its misty purple islands lurking in the background.
