Animated Concept Art WIP
I thought I would get some input on this current work in progress piece...
(divx, avi, 28megs, 50 seconds so far)
It started life as a aircraft concept but I wanted to show it in action.
It's 100% 2d animation (no particle or 3d work) and is very incomplete so far but hopefully you will get the gist. The sound is also still work in progress; I will be adding some crew dialogue for the titles once I can be bothered to record it!
I've painted more cross sections than currently shown in the video and plan to have crew working inside. I will be adding more dust and smoke when it comes in to land and the craft will also come under attack in order to show it's weaponry in action. I will fade in a more detailed background as time goes by leading up to the fight.
Anyhow, let me know what you think so far...

Lotet: Well, I've been doing it on and off for a while so I'm not exactly sure, but it's probably been about weeks work so far in total if I add up the hours.
I find it much quicker to do it all in 2d rather than faffing around with 3d projections like the bathhouse piece (although to be fair that took even longer because I was experimenting and learning how to do it in combination with being a slacker )

yes at the moment the titles are far too long but I plan to have crew dialogue running over them; they will be talking about coming in to land with the soldiers on the ground (still to be done! ), so hopefully that will help with the build up and fill the void. Of course, it might not work as I plan and I'll have to shorten it!

ijacobs9: All done by animating 2d layers on top of each other, pretty simple really... though the layers are piling up and it's getting a bit of a pain to work with!
Well, i've done a first pass on the smoke for the landing... achieved by animating loads of low opacity painted layers on top of each other.
I've cropped the video to the relevent section to save on download time
(Excuse the flipped version, had to get a fresh look at the work)
