Principles of Animation

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

Follow Through and Overlapping action is all about the laws of physics and how materials things affect each other. Whether it is long hair stretching down as you are running, being pulled by gravity, or butts wiggling as a woman steps down, or Loki’s cloak taking a few frames to catch up to him as Hulk is smashing the puny god!

Follow through is all about taking a pose or two for things to catch up as someone stops moving, and overlapping action is how things tend to do things as you start moving, falling behind for a little bit. This is vitally important to create realism in our art and animations.

Make Gaming Great Again, March 3rd, 2019

Things are going really well. I’m almost at 4700 views on BitChute – so it’s coming along quiet nicely. The weekend is always m y big days – keep up the great work guys.

This week, if you missed it, I got the following vids out –

And Animation Types –

Thanks for all the support you have given me.

The game development is going forward too, as you can see. While I have Trolly almost done, I just need to rework the hands a bit, and then start bringing in the legs and feet, so it shouldn’t take very long. I figure about 8 weeks to get him perfectly modelled, animated and worked on.

After that, for my viewers, I am going to model a head and a body for everybody, and myself.

Doing each character from scratch is just dumb. I never did that with SoftImage, I made templates for characters, but I am kinda of rusty.

It should shave so much work off of creating a character – because I’ll have a ready made body to work with. Then I’ll get right on to a female template and body.

I am learning quiet a lot though, and I’m really proud of the progress I’ve made in the past 4-5 months.

Thanks for supporting my work, it’s been a pleasure working with all of you so far.

This Week in Making Gaming Great Again Feb. 24th, 2019

What a Birthday week I had. Everything worked out like clockwork in my life, including my channel. I’m over 4000 views on my channel. When I sat down, thinking about what my targets for views, I didn’t expect the sheer amount of support I would get, I was hoping for 5k views by May. If I keep going, I should have that by the first two weeks of March, if not sooner. Thank you guys! While I’m talking about that – feel free to come over to my channel teaching game development – BitChute – https://www.bitchute.com/channel/makegamesgreatagain/.

This week, I went through –

Blender Tutorial 2 – Blender Solar System placement –

https://www.bitchute.com/video/iUeDcA1Q0llI/

How to Make Focal points in Blender –

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

Virtual Coder 3 – While Loops –

https://www.bitchute.com/video/p5pvlH1pPGpB/

And the Principles of Animation 3 – Staging/Framing

https://www.bitchute.com/video/BxayP4kkyr4s/

Development on my game has been going, slowly but surely. I have one of the main character’s face done – Trolly McPatrairchy, pictured below. The cross is an eye target, and yes, it does make the eyes move wherever I put it. I’ve got the sketches for Based Stickman done, and most of the writing is done for the characters. Within the next couple of weeks, I’ll be just drawing concepts for the game, instead of always being in the GDM so much, and it looks like 3 weeks to model a character, and I’d expect a week for texturing and 1 week for rigging the character. After that, I’ll make a Trolly trailer.

Don’t forget to share this post with others. It gets my work out there.

I know this link is off topic, but if you want a real laugh today – https://twitter.com/aja_cortes/status/1098710614057222146?s=21 – this guy is giving women advice on how to be women, and it’s just as funny as it sounds. And his name, I thought it was our favourite politician, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for a moment, but now, some guy who is just as stupid as her.

Here’s to another amazing week in Make Gaming Great Again!

This week in Making Games Great Again – February 3rd, 2019

Wow, just one more day and I start my next batch of lessons in game design. The month was a huge one for me. From about 1400 views on BitChute to well over 2500 views – that’s over 1100 views in a month. If I keep those stats, I will be well over 13k by this year’s end – hopefully more – with all the cool stuff I am going to teach you over this year.

Thanks for all the support guys, and don’t forget to remind this post and give me a thumbs up. The more support I get, the better my work will become, that’s for sure. Anybody who supports my channel will definitely get all kinds of sneak previews of game footage and even game testing my game when it is almost done. And this helps me get my Game Development channel out there, so people don’t have to spend 40k, like I did, to become a game developer by taking animation or game development in college or university.

Looking at my work load, I expect I can get lots of work done on my game in the next few months, after I sat down and planned out my weeks until May. I will have many components made for the game, including a 3d Trolly, Trollette and Vaggy. I’ve never had Trolly done in 3d yet. He’s only been 2d drawing for the longest time – since 2015. . . I guess his first official birthday will be sometime in the next 2 or 3 weeks.

But my main focus will always be teaching game development – which brings me to the next bunch of episodes that will focus on 3d and animation. I will be teaching Blender, so you might want to go to the linked website at the bottom of this text and download it today, while you are reading this. I will be teaching how to create the Solar System, and a little spaceship that will travel around in it, so we can learn all the capabilities of Blender with just learning the basics.

While you are going through my tutorials on making the solar system, which will teach you all the basics, going through Blender Guru’s beginner tutorial’s playlist will give you twice as much practice, and it will allow you to learn laterally as well – because you’re making donuts with his series, and the solar system with mine. Lateral learning is important, I was able to create most of my tutorials by learning from his tutorials. I add a couple of other parts to my tutorials go above and beyond his beginner tutorials, and only towards the end.

I’ll also be teaching the principles of animation, which I am also linking at the bottom of this text. It will give you the basic definitions of each principle, and I will go more in depth in each lesson to provide some real context and examples of these principles. These are vitally important in creating awesome video games. The more exaggerated and expressive the movement, the better it actually reads as reality, so this is a vitally important lessons, whether you decide on 2d or 3d gaming!

I’m also making going to go through a new coding game with everybody called Virtual Coder – Sumerian, which I am linking below. The more practice we can get for all these tasks the better you will get. Again, this is that lateral learning stuff – if you’ve gone through SwiftPlaygrounds and through this game, than you have twice as much practice by applying ideas and concepts.

Now, following the @thequartering here on Minds and YouTube, I know there is a bit of a discussion on the new Epic Games store, and I don’t want to get involved in Internet Drama at all, but his stance can be pretty negative. As a aspiring game developer, my games will be on Epic Games store – simply because I hope to make a little money on it. I don’t expect millions, so every penny I can save will be passed onto my customers, and used to pay my rent, bills and groceries.

I know they don’t have user reviews by default, but you can opt-in, which is probably a click somewhere – so I will always have user reviews. I invite people to critique me if it helps me improve my work. Besides, I get to be the alpha who gets to make fun of the betas on the store, who hide behind opt-outs!

Hopefully, my thoughts can help him see that he shouldn’t pass judgement so quickly on the Epic store or the developers who choose to use it, being as cynical as he is.

Thanks for supporting me and making games great again!

This week in Make Gaming Great Again, January 6th, 2019

Happy New Year guys! We’ve made it, it’s 2019 now.

I’ve been invited to a couple of streams on YouTube, one this Monday and another couple that are tentative right now, one with someone following me on Twitter another person from The New Right Network. I will let you know all the details as I get them. I’ve been thinking about some things about the movement lately. and some of it is good and bad.

Recently, I’ve been thinking about how things are going within all the anti-leftist/sjw/’progressive’ movement, especially when I see videos where one YouTuber is calling out another in the movement as a Cuck. Sure, when Cognative Thought showed a Jeff Holiday being stupid on a live stream with Kevin Logan, he wasn’t wrong, but when I think of the movement, OMG. It kinda reminds me of the feeding frenzy. People became very popular fighting the regressive left during GamerGate, but they were sharks eating up all the popularity they could get, going after bedroom feminists to the queen Anita Sarkeesian. But all those fish are gone, so what can they do anymore – feed off each other.

I was a blogger about a year ago, doing my best to be just like @Sargon_of_Akkad and @DaveCullen. I was trying to feed with them. And I realized something. If you stand directly behind someone, doing the exact same thing as they are doing, you’re always under their shadow. Sargon got hundreds of thousands of people subscribing to him. I got a few thousand reads to my blogs every month.

This is why I changed, for people who have told me, stop gaming, stop doing this – your movement will not grow unless the people in it grow. When I think about the game development channel I started on BitChute, I went from about 250 views in month 1, and then 750 in month 2, and over 1400 views by Jan 1st, and now over 1600 views right now. Each month, I see growth, because people are hungry to do something new and better. What I am offering is not for the feint of heart, because it’s very gratifying to go for the juglar right away, to have the blood hit the water, but it is always better to seek long term than short term. Every kid in an experiment where a pyschologist tested if they would eat a cookie or not before they came back by promising a second cookie if they didn’t eat a cookie did better than the kids who ate the cookie in exit interviews 10 years later. Waiting is always better – wait for the second cookie and that’s when you succeed, and our movement will succeed.

It’s time to start branching out, taking parallel but different routes will create such a movement that they will not know how to deal with it. If we start invading book stores with dozens of authors, and animated shorts on YouTube and streaming services, video games in different stores, and gaming websites that don’t care how woke something is, and movies on NetFlix, and new mobile operating systems for mobile devices, they will have lost.

I’ve finished my ‘first semester’ of game development – 24 videos. All the introduction vidoes, where I talk about important concepts to perform the first step in the creative process, turning an idea into a concept. You can learn how to create your own concept for a video game. Not just that 10 word pitch that you’d give, but a fully fleshed out video game concept on paper that you can give an in depth pitch to a video game company, along with the skills you can develop to start looking for work in the video game industry. The more we invade regressive controlled media, the more we can start to turn things back to normal.

The skills I will be teaching in the ‘second semester’ another 22 videos – 10 on working with Blender, and 12 on the principle of animation, I will allow many of you to be able to decide, do I want to make a video game or an animated series – all from the comfort of your home, free of charge.

Remember, we can overcome, but it is a fight that will last for years.

Wow, we’re finally done it. We’re at the end of the first phase of Make Gaming Great Again, ending our introduction series of the basic skills and concepts of game development. In this episode, I look at how to create caricatures of people and bring them to life, an important art skill to master.

When you do caricatures, you have to think about the person you are caricaturing. You need to learn the mannerism, their physical characteristics, and their personality. As an example, since I have a caricature of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in my game as PM JT, the name is a caricature that he seems like some surfer dude/ski dude here in Canada, he’s informal, but virtue signals his support of causes like the LGBT community, so his ski jacket is rainbow coloured, exemplifying this guy who is way out of his element as he leads a nation.

Caricatures are fun little elements that can bring lots of things to life. We see them every single day with caricatures of all kinds of public figures and they are an important part of democracy, keeping public figures in check if they go too far, be it Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau or Anita Sarkeesian.

For the rest of the month, I want you to keep on going through my channel, thinking about and working on a game idea, because in February I’m going onto the Blender and I’m going to teach you how to create 3d art for your video game. 3d games sell better than 2d games by far, if they are done right. So while you are doing that, go to Blender Guru’s channel and start learning some 3d art with him, so next month you will be able to create a scene where a space ship flies through the solar system which is also animated.

Thanks for all the support you have show me by coming to my channel to learn game development, helping to Make Games Great Again.

MGGA – Introduction to Variables

Full Video –

Variable Definition –

SwiftPlaygrounds –

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/swift-playgrounds/id908519492?mt=8

Variables are snippets of code which store a value of any random thing in your program or game. It’s used by game developers to dictate what object in a game does what to where and when, all things that are defined by Variables.

Looking at previous episodes, the Guards are their complete own variable, and Shopkeeps would be their own variable, the player character is their own variable, townspeople are their own variables, a door is a variable, and just about anything is a variable which is defined the developer. That way you can code further things to say Door193 will only unlock with Key039 and not any other key in your pack.
