Hey guys, just a signal boost for a pretty cool crowdfunding campaign..

The program Animation Paper’s indiegogo is live!  Animation Paper is an animation program that is streamlined and easy to use, and is meant to imitate animating on real paper using a lightboard.  You got dope sheets and onionskinning and none of the useless extra features.  The layout is intended to be clean and uncluttered.  I’ve been waiting for this campaign to launch for a while, I’m pretty excited!

So, fellow and aspiring animators, throw some dollars at this sweet program, and reblog if you can, so that we can get this cool project to reach its goal!

Please go support by funding this guys! It looks very promising, especially for us animators that hate the hassles of most animation programs that are frustrating to use. This program is also cheap, going for $79 for retail price! But when you fund it and buy it now..you can get it for $59! What a steal!

This is interesting.  The default version everyone is funding is a Mac exclusive.  The Windows version is a $300k stretch goal, which is a little disappointing to tell the truth.  But it seems a Windows version is something they’d like to do regardless of stretch.. Which is why at $20 you are literally paying for an eventual discount on the Windows version when it’s ready.  

The prospect of this is rather exciting, as this program seems fairly easy to get your head around.  As someone who’s been animating in Flash since 2002, I’m extremely sick of a lot of the problems I have with the software.  Flash isn’t being treated by Adobe as an animation package and learning Toon Boom was too time consuming and just giving me a headache.  

I also asked the developer a few questions on Twitter.. Here are the responses:

EDIT - Also in response to the Windows version:

They only have 13 days left and are at 13% for their funding!
GO GO GO DONATE!!

Going ahead and boosting this and also donating. The accessibility of this software given its announced price could really enable some people to get into the biz.

Screwing around. I’m still alive!

Beethoven’s 2nd - The Ultimate Canine Caper! (Air and Mike) 

A humble first vid on a new channel I’m beginning to work on with some friends called PressBeeToStart. Soon enough I’ll start putting things like title screens and graphics that help show who’s playing and talking.

My friend Air.
I don’t know whether to fully color these or go monochrome with the person’s desired hue. There will be more of these in the future as I’m setting up a YouTube channel for fun times, and need a theme.

More odds n’ ends, things finished and unfinished.

About half of the Antsy images I drew for various drawthreads, put together.
I learned a little about time management and moving on to the next piece even if the one before wasn’t great. I am a slow artist.

Happy belated birthday, SeanHicks!
I’d like to think that if things were different, we still wouldn’t be sure where we were going. Here’s hoping the future brings some direction and gnarly, rad times.

Here’s a preview of one bee out of a handful that I’m making for a YouTube channel in which some friends and I play geems and are depicted by bees. I’ll probably go back and touch it up more, but I really oughtta be(e) working on the next ones.

For my new machine’s maiden voyage into art, I drew a friend’s character that I should’ve drawn a long time ago.
