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.

Feel free to go to the facebook album to download the pictures, and join the group as well – I post up all the videos I create there when they are done.

Everything you see in a 3d video game is a model that is textured. So one of the most important skills you can start to develop is modelling. Today, we are going to start off slowly, with my MAGA Ship.

We’re learning how to change our layouts, how to bring in reference pictures to rotoscope our ships, and we’re learning all kinds of things in modelling – how to extrude, inset, join multiple items, and merge vertices to ensure everything is completely smooth.

After you model this, keep going. Find a tutorial and blueprints to make whatever you want to model. Remember, lateral is important, modelling a cup with Blender Guru’s beginner tutorials is a start, but modelling my spaceship helps you learn more, and then tackling something really interesting can help you take your modelling skills from a complete newbie to proficient. I would love to see something as complex as a star destroyer flying around the solar system.

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 –

https://www.bitchute.com/video/rjZq6vXFNvzK/

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 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!

Welcome back to Make Gaming Great Again.

Last ‘semester’ was a bit of an idea, to see if I could start a game development channel on YouTube and BitChute and see if people thought it was valuable. While YouTube certainly has me in some kind of algorithm wilderness, BitChute has over 2000 views and gets more popular every single week I check its stats.

The most important lessons of the first semester is – don’t be afraid of coding, just learn the definitions and practice. Don’t be afraid of art, just use tutorials and get better, then start characters and caricatures from scratch to further your skills.

The whole 10,000 hour rule is all about learning, practicing what you learn, and then trying things and experimenting. If anything, this is the most important thing I think I could have taught anybody in the 24 videos for ‘Semester’ 1 – learn, practice, share and experiment.

This ‘semester’, we will be learning some more advanced things for sure, but it still comes down with learning, practicing, sharing and experimenting.

First, we will learn the principles of animation – 12 things you need to learn to bring your creations to life, be it 2d or 3d animation.

Second, we will learn Blender by creating the solar system. I also recommend you learn Blender Guru’s blender basics tutorial group, because I will teach much of the same stuff he is teaching, but you will be doing something different from what I am doing – he shows you how to make some donuts and a cup on a table, and I’m showing you how to create the Solar System, with the exact same lessons – something called lateral learning.

Third, I will be teaching you coding again through a new coding game that I just learned about. It has 11 levels, each with a more involved coding solution – perfect for practicing and gaining skills.

Thanks for the support and welcome to my ‘second’ semester, making games 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 Making Games Great Again – Jan. 27th, 2019

Since last Friday/Saturday, I’ve had one really wild ride. The MAGA kid, working on the newest episodes for Make Gaming Great Again, the world on GamerGate Trolls. I’ve had a really busy week, my first week back from vacation. Well, I got what I wanted to get done – the first three Blender lessons recorded, and a bunch of other lessons all scripted out. I’m changing my format a bit – adding a Syllabus to each lesson – telling you what we are going to learn today. Some of them are simple, and others – like Blender, are going to be really complex.

Some of the Blender videos are going to be over an hour long, but you will gets lots of practice in making something amazing when we build the solar system together.

If you didn’t realize that we all live on a planet represented by that little orange dot, well now you do. Life is too short and the planet is too small to do anything but do our best to help each other.

Here’s a render of the planet – not perfect, because it just uses materials, and the moon needs to be behind the planet as well, not in front of it.

I’m putting all of these lessons together so people don’t have to spend 40k on an education to get into animation or get into game development. Every single time you share this post, or one of my posts, you are going to help someone who is thinking about game development save money by not going to college. I want kids, like the MAGA kids, to know about my work and produce video games, with conservative messages in them – fighting off socialism and the authoritarian left. That way, the hacks that use to work at Buzzfeed are responding to us, running for their safe spaces, instead of always responding to them.

We need to take back our culture, and culture is defined by the media is consumes. We need to create a more balanced media, in movies, TV shows, games, video games, books and anything that educates and entertains.

You can help me do that by reminding this post today on your social media account, commenting and up voting it. And the people who consistently help me, and sending me wires on Minds, I will make sure you get all kinds of perks – including streaming the game on Minds through the gathering P2P streaming feature that is in beta right now!

On my game front, I’ve almost got the main villain all drawn up. I’m not going to give away who the character is right now, that’s going to be the big twist in the game. Over the next couple of months, I will be working on character after character – drawing full character sheets and fleshing out the character information – but I expect I will be able to start working on 3d characters fairly soon – I should have all the Blender lessons recorded within the next couple of weeks, which means I will focus on GamerGate Trolls characters by following other blender tutorials that I will put up before the next semester.

I’m more than half way through with the world section – writing that is. After that, I am going to do some concept art on the areas. You’re going to just love how I am going to do the Corrupt News Websites area – you will definitely just burst out laughing!

I can definitely see a story brewing up in my mind – how the game will work, the visuals involved. It’s going to be hilarious.

Thanks for supporting my channel and making games great again!
