MGGA – Introduction to Squash and Stretch – Principles of Animation – S2L3

Full Video

New Lesson – Introduction to Squashing and Stretching – Principles of Animation – S2L3. Today, we talk about one of most ill-informed concept for all art – the principles of animation, and the most important concept in it, the principle of squash and stretch. Whether you are Peter Parker, being squashed by a bunch of rubble as Doc Oc has smashed you into to and then exloding out of it, or it’s simply animating a bouncing ball that is squashed as it hits the ground and then stretches as it rebounds up, or you’re Trollette who huddles up near a fire, and then stretches forth to tease the guys, it shows intention and character in all these things.

In gaming animations, I don’t know how many indie developers obviously don’t know these important concepts to make their animations have energy and come to life, so this is a vitally important lesson for everybody to watch if they are serious about game development.

Blender Updates

As I have stated, I have been working with Blender over the past month and a half. It is a remarkably powerful program – and it’s free. I am working on creating a project to create the solar system, which is how I am going to show you the basics of Blender.

This render is of the Earth, fully textured, with an environment texture for the star fields around it.

This is the planet from a different camera angle, with some asteroids in the backgrounds, barely seen.

Here is the solar system without proper light, but the creation of the asteroid fields using particles.

This is the Earth, the moon and the Space Ship I am going to show you how to model in improper lighting.

Here is the Earth, which is very dark – due to improper lighting.

This is the Earth, with just materials, with a couple of planets in the background.

This is the MAGA ship.

This is the MAGA ship without engines and without blasters.

Some wisdom from Carl Sagan about how small we are.

Here’s some more wisdom from Carl Sagan.

I started this meme after the MAGA covington event!

The original planet placement, with all planets, with just the Earth selected, the tiny little orange dot.

The MAGA Kids Event

Full Video –

This weekend had one of the most outrageous events that I have ever witness. Some kid, who is only ‘guilty’ of wearing a MAGA hat and nervously smiling while someone beat a drum in his face, was the target of such a hateful mob of media pundits, celebrities and hateful, vengeful people.

If goodness is all about forgiveness and charity, these people have no high road, and have taken the worst road possible.

Those kids need to know there are people who stand behind them – who live a life of forgiveness and charity. We should not let them feel alone, but that we stand behind them with the truth!

Working with Blender Now

For the past 2-3 weeks, I’ve been working to learn Blender through an awesome YouTube channel – Blender Guru. Andrew is an excellent teacher, and takes just enough time to educate you on what to do in Blender to ensure you do all the right things.

I’ve gone through 5 of his videos now, one to introduce 3d work, which I could have skipped because I’ve taken animation before, using Autodesk SoftImage. They killed the software, and Blender is free, so I would rather not go into massive amounts of debt to create a video game.

The next four episodes of his show have been very fun to follow, and I can see how I am going to teach you all Blender to create some awesome effects when I create the solar system. He’s not teaching that, he’s teaching something completely different – making a still life of a plate of donuts on a table. I’m going to show you how to create a space ship and the solar system.

A radioactive donut, using a material that will allow me to show you how to make the Sun.

Just a normal chocolate donut.

The original donut without any materials on it.

A flaming monkey skull.

I can see, from how easy it was to use particles in SoftImage 6.5 compared to future versions they came out with, Autodesk planned on killing it. Blender was very easy to use to create that fire effect on the monkey head. It really reminded me of SoftImage 6.5 – a couple of clicks and a few slider bars and you could do some amazing stuff with it.

I definitely recommend Blender as the 3d tool we use to create everything we need for our games.

Vagnita Suckeesian Character Sheet

You can’t have a parody of GamerGate and Internet Drama without making Anita Sarkeesian, or at least a caricature of her, as the main enemy of the game, which gave birth to Vagnita Suckeesian.

I was inspired by Disney and other cartoon villains, like the Grinch (I’ll give you 3 guesses which emotion was inspired by him), while at the same time, looking at Anita’s way over dyed and damaged hair, which I am contemplating is going to be part of her attack style.

Vaggy, of course, is out to censor the entire Internet, cleansing it of any idea, video, blog or game that disagrees with her narrow Ideology.

Trollette Von BigTits Character Sheet

Trollette is a smart and sexy Instagram model who gets caught up in an Internet insurrection attack on /pol/ by Antifa Thugs, lead by PM JT, who wants to silence any person who disagrees with him on any of his policies, which /pol/ and Trollette have done several times.

Follow my website for Game Footage videos as I create them, and even a free preview version of my game.

Thanks for supporting my page and have a great day!

Welcome to Blender guys. One of the first things I became fascinated with when I was a kid, 7 or 8 years old, was the solar system. I imagined all kinds of adventures flying in a spaceship like Luke Skywalker and the Voltron Force, fighting evil with my lightsaber and the Blazing Sword.

Today, lets create the solar system in Blender, and the information we have on our solar system.

I’m going to show you how to delete things in Blender.

Then we are going to learn how bring objects into Blender, namely spheres representing the sun and the planets.

We are going to learn about the planets, to properly place them in the scene and resize the planet to be the right size, through translation and scaling.

I’m also going to show you how to ensure we apply our transformations so wonky things won’t happen when you attach things together.

After that, I will show how to add modifiers to our meshes, to make them look much better.

Plus, I am going to show you how to operate the side panels to quickly name things.

I’m also going to show you how to group objects into collections, so you can isolate different objects, like one group for planets, another for the scene camera and light.

And I’m going to show you how to save your work.

Once you learn all of this, why don’t you add the Moon, like I am in the next episode.

Thanks for watching the video and making games great again. Give me a like and subscribe to my channel for more blender, coding and animation tutorials. And don’t forget to share this video with anybody you think would benefit from a free college level education.

This Week in Make Gaming Great Again, Feb 17th, 2019

Well, things are going pretty amazingly. First, finally on Valentine’s day, Exclusively Games went online. I don’t know how many articles I have read from there. It’s awesome to finally have a place where we can just kick back and read some stuff on games, and discuss them without social justice in them. It’s perfect and everything I expected.

For all my supporters, thanks for helping me break 3400 views on BitChute. Yes, my little grassroots, lets develop video games together, channel is going for over 4000 views by the end of this month. This is far more than I expected. Like I say, share these videos with everybody you can who is interested in learning the whole of the game development process.

On GamerGate Trolls, I started to really get things done – By mid next week, I will have Trolly’s face done. When I get it done, I will change my channel portrait to the new 3d Trolly, and a final time when I actually do the texturing of Trolly. By the end of next week, I will have Trolly’s body completely modelled.

The Game Design Manual didn’t get much work done, because I was super busy trying to help my mom this week. She was doing much better, for anybody who might be wondering, but each week has it’s highs and lows because she is losing herself.

Remember, help me get my account out there for anybody in your circle that is interested in game development, including journalists who have recently lost their jobs and need to Learn to Code.

Thanks for making games great again!

Principles of Animation

https://www.evl.uic.edu/datsoupi/251/docs/12AnimationPrinciples.pdf

While video games have an amazing way to create a sense of anticipation in their users, with programmable things that will get a player’s attention to some kind of detail, again in indie games this is something that is clearly lacking.

What makes something humorous and entertaining, not only giving your player the heads up on something, but getting characters to act properly, preparing for an act, acting it out, and then the termination of the act – like winding back, conjuring a ball of fire in your hands, and then lobbing it at the enemies. When you animate powers in your game, always think about that. Think of Street Fighter, with the Hadouken – winding back and then throwing the ball of energy, or the Shepard, you’re working too hard renegade trigger – it is possible to show these kinds of events and animations in video games.

Even the power attack, that the character jumps in the air – he will probably squat down first in preparation, and then jump up in the air – the action, and terminate the action as he slams his fists on the ground.

Or Trollette, looking to the left and right – the preparation of the act – stretching her legs out – the act, and then closing them again and winking at Trolly.

Thanks for making games great again.

Introduction to For Loops –

https://www.bitchute.com/video/uecTQDBZ38VJ/

This is the second of three Virtual Coder lessons, and this is their levels to teach for loops. For Loops are segments of code where you repeat the code within it the number of times defined by i in the code – if i = 3 it repeats 3 times, if i = 10, then it repeats 10 times.

It helps reduce the amount of coding you need to do if you need to repeat the same command more than once in a pattern.

Today’s lesson goes through levels 6 to 8 in Virutal Coder, with my explanation of what this works or why it doesn’t work for deliberate mistakes.

Blender Guru’s Beginner Tutorial series – https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjEaoINr3zgHs8uzT3yqe4iHGfkCmMJ0P

Welcome to my Blender tutorial series. This is the first lesson – how to download Blender, how to install it, how to move the camera around in it and set it up for orthographic views, how to move, rotate and scale objects, how to change the camera settings for easier manipulations, and how to setup your folders to make things really easy to get at.

In this series, we are going to create the solar system, so if you want to go ahead, you should google all the planets and start a bit of an email database on the planets so we can work quickly to space them out and get the right colour for them.

Thanks for watching the video and Making Games Great Again!

This week in Make Gaming Great Again, Feb. 10th, 2019

I had both a good and bad week last week. While I want to focus my efforts on this channel on my projects of making GamerGate Trolls and creating video game tutorials and I hardly ever talk about my personal life, I feel a bit of a need to get this off my chest.

While the work part is going pretty well, I am hardly keeping it together personally. My mom has dementia. She sees people in TV as family members. She can’t do much of anything anymore, and in the past month has proved she can’t even take care of herself anymore. And the support workers who come to her home 3 times a week, IMO, aren’t even helping!

This week, in particular, has been completely shitty – a soup I made the last time I showed up, I show up every Thursday, wasn’t even put away – that’s how bad my mom’s condition is – soup on the stove for an entire week, and her helpers couldn’t even be bother to put in in the fridge or dump it for being on the stove for too long!

I’m the only one who helps mom, so it’s completely disheartening. I hope we can get her into a nursing home soon, because trying to manage what’s going on with her, while creating my video game and game development videos for all of you is getting way too overwhelming for me. But I will go on.

Despite all of that, I am still managing to create a very fruitful channel – almost 3000 views on BitChute right now. I can’t believe it. That keeps me going guys. It puts a smile on my face, because every single week I am doing better than the week before. I am so very thankful every single one of you are coming to my lessons and watching them.

This week, I will be starting my first blender lessons – about 15-20 minutes long, showing you how to maneuver around the scene, how to manipulate the objects and how to change the viewport settings – getting you ready to jump into creating with Blender.

Of course, I will continue to create a video on Virtual Coder, focusing on For Loop levels this video, and anticipation for the Principles of Animation. With some ideas I’ve been thinking of, it will improve the flow of my videos a heck of a lot, so expect them a bit faster, not that much faster, but a bit faster.

Thanks for your support to make gaming great again!
