Inktober Butterfly Adobe After Effects Butterfly Experimental Animations UMASS Video Project

Inktober 忍 Butterfly Adobe After Effects Butterfly Experimental Animations UMASS Video Project

Here are 2 test animations of some experimental effects animation created using:

Adobe Photoshop 6.0
Adobe After Effects

This one is the first render from last week:

Here's the 2nd render from today:

The Original Photoshop Clean-up work:

And the Original Inktober Drawing in my sketchbook done with graphic art markers:

I actually have so many ideas, and I wanted to do a lot more with these experiments, but I had limited time, money, and access to time 1 on 1 w/my instructor. I also don't Own After Effects, nor a computer modern enough to handle the newer versions of Adobe CS programs, or Davinci Resolve.

Anyways, I am starting all over to create an entirely different project, and altho' I LOVE these, I will be creating a Projection/projector Video Mapping style Installation Art project. 

My OTHER video project I created for my UMASS video class is HERE.

Inktober Butterflies

My Butterfly created HALF by hand with the Chinese character 忍

I don't particularly care, nor necessarily like, working with inks other than the occasional graphic art marker. Having said that, I do, however, have a video class at UMASS, and we are working on all kinds of things.

So, I asked my daughter to draw me a Butterfly to try some tricks on Adobe After Effects. What my daughter came up with wasn't exactly what I wanted, so I scanned and altered it from her original version, and made this version:

I still wanted to create my own original one, so I did this butterfly HALF, and then edited it in Photoshop 6.0

Note: The wing has the Chinese character 忍 (Forbearance or Endurance, or to endure harshness or hardship. It's often popular in Japan, and with Zen, but actually hails from Confucius and not Buddhism or Taoism. 

I am still unsure as to whether I will use this in my video project at UMASS or not yet.
