some animation stuff
Hey there -
New to the forums. I am primarily an After Effects animator - making sort of boring corporate-type stuff I won't bore you with. But I've done a few drawing-based 'real' cartoons that I thought I'd show. Cos I like em.
TV ad for an insurance company (After Effects, Adobe Illustrator, Wacom):
three ten second "stings" for a music store (AE, AI, Wacom):
TV ad for a radio station (After Effects & Sharpie drawings, cleaned up and colored in Photoshop):
I've got more stuff on my site if you are interested: http://www.standard-design.com/multimedia.html

Hey, these are pretty good!
I'm curious if you have worked with Flash at all. AE and Flash are very powerful when put together. Illustrator is a time saver when it comes to creating vector graphics, but Flash is the best for animating vectors. Are you using the puppet tools in After Effects for these animations?

I like the whimsical designs, they work well. They do have a feel reminiscent of early Rocky and Bullwinkle-esque animated features.

Very nice ads, love the retro/UPA sort of feel on the Turn It Up! ads. Cool seeing someone using After Effects for more puppet based work, I haven't seen that a whole lot recently (might just be looking in the wrong places though). Either way good work!

Lovely start! I think you'd be interested in some animation books out there. I think one is the animators survival guide. It has some good stuff on spacing that would really help you get you animation looking smoother.
