I just finished my third Zooniverse animation! Had to pull an all-nighter, I tried to do something smart but just choked up Flash, my weekend was spent trying dig around for the problem. My animation is raw and not completely polished, but it's done. I hope you get something out of it. :)

Here is Helen's animation (click here), we cracked ourselves up doing the voices  as usual.

I did very much enjoy that one as well. They really capture something I feel I am starting to remember.

Good good, that one is layered with meaning, it's also completely biographical. Doing the animation cured my depression because it helped me understand why I was depressed. That's how linked my art is to my life. :)

I enjoyed it very much. I am trying very hard to hold onto the light, regardless of the slip ups and pitfalls.

Do you plan on making the Zooniverse into a cartoon series?

At this point all I can afford to do is these loops (which I do for free). They are tests for the style and to build up assets for a longer YouTube release of each topic.

This way I have managed to do a new animation a month, so I'll stick to that formula for now. Plus I'm working on turning each of these animations into short comic stories as well to be released in the back of the Prophet comic from Image (Issue#22 had an old Zooniverse comic, but nothing new yet).

Ironically the only reason I began working with Richard Raynis and Kevin Alteri in Hollywood was the promise to do Zooniverse as an animation, otherwise I never would have left Australia. Now I'm back home and doing it myself without Hollywood's help. I kept my side of the bargain at least. :)

Wow.
Well, Irony can be a rewarding mistress at times, at least.

But, seriously, have you also considered posting your animations at smashnet.tv ?

I hadn't hear about smashnet until now. I had a look, certainlty worth looking into. I have set up a Vimeo account and already have a YouTube one, which I will eventually post to once I have improved the basic loop animations.

Yeah I'm working an the line-up of the Heat Seekers team in the second style which was based on Milton Caniff. I can focus on finishing the coloring now that this animation has been completed. You'll be able to see how different the Zilla series might have been. :)

*LOL* Those are both awesome! XD XD XD

I really liked the liquid effects. :) Little details like the rising level of the pink liquid being poured, or the pulsing and swirling of that liquid in the tubes behind the aliens in the conference room.... Just little details like that add some great depth! :la:

Also, I loved that little computer they were chatting with. XD How the text kind of warped as it scrolled across? Very cool. :D

Thanks for taking the time to have a look! I actually get a kick out of hinting at life or movement, little magician tricks to fake believability into a flat series of drawings.

Kinda fun. These are very old characters, so it's a whole new dimension for me making them move and giving them sound. The Chemlords are creepier than I ever imagined with their respirators puffing away. The way they type still amuses me.

Aoh my GUH-HU-HOOOSH the way they type! :iconnoeswooplz: :laughing: I just took another look.... ugh-huh-huh the way they move together so icily.... (here I'm making that shudder noise Helen made her her cartoon) :XD: I also like the finger-movements of the one in the middle. And the clickity little fingers of the Twon are fun to watch too. :D

I gotta say also, everything is drawn just gorgeously. :) All the backgrounds and textures and little structural details, the water ripples!.... and I love the color schemes. XD I guess I just didn't think about it before because.... it's so complete it's invisible! :D

*lol* Does that make sense? :laughing:
