G Dub Test

I've never really been an animator. I always wanted to be one when I was a little kid but I veered into the direction of comic book art and illustration in my early teens and never looked back.

But, lately, with all of the toys at my disposal on the computer in front of me, I've thought more about animation and moving my art around the screen. Plus, with my new love of music, making my art move to the beat of the song seems the next logical step.

So, when I got an email today about doing some simple animation for a music video my first instinct was to pass the job onto a friend of mine who specializes in animation. But, then I sat back, thought about it, and decided to give it a shot to see what I could come up with.

Here was a test I did to make sure the thoughts I had in my head would work and to make sure I was on the right track with what the client had in mind.

Like I said, it's simple but, for what it's being used for, it works. And, when you hear the song it's going to be laid over, it really works in time with the music.

And, I made a still photo move.

I think I just opened a whole new door.

Interesting, I'm looking forward to see where this leads.
