Blender has a Grease Pencil tool, which allows you to draw "on top of the screen". And Blender is also a video editor. And a game engine. And it can be used to match video data to a 3D movement (matchmaking). Things just get added, it's crazy.

Any way, the grease pencil has its roots on old CRT monitors with glass screens. It used to be that animators would use water-soluble markers to draw ON THE GLASS, and then use that as a guideline, and swipe it off with a wet rag afterwards. Don't try it with modern monitors! But yeah, it can be used to just draw on the screen.


Re: the animation itself - cool stuff! I would add a bit more squish and a longer preparation before the first, long jump, so the viewer starts expecting the jump before it happens. Also, the character moves a smaller distance in the first frames of the long jump, and a larger distance in the last frames. He doesn't have a jetpack,so it should be slowing down.

That said, it still reads well and looks good. I like the secondary movement in the ears, and the bounce in his landing.

Huh, so it's a 3D model? I was sure it was the grease pencil.

Yeah, 3D models work, I made some experiments a while ago but this sure looked like something drawn.

Only critique is that it's a bit slow.

Hey, everyone. Remember me? I'm that guy that posted all that really weird art from back then. It's been a long time since I last visited this forum...to be honest I got kinda burned out.

But recent updates as well as the announcement that the campaign will be a higher priority focus has inspired me to do some art. :) Granted it's just a sketch because I don't have much time or motive to go further, but who knows? I might work on it a little more.

Looks really good Fidchell! I do remember your name.

Overgrowth Weekly will be returning tomorrow Sunday at the usual time ( http://ogweekly.com ). We'll continue to keep an eye on this thread and make collages of the new art every episode. So keep that art coming everyone!
