So, I've been doing more of the pre production side of this project because unfortunately, for me, animation is just a no no. However, I thought to myself, I wont be good at animation unless I practice, so although a few of the other members of the group already have the animation sorted, I thought i'd do a quick test of a windmill - baring in mind I haven't animated since before Christmas, and I haven't used flash since first year so about a year ago. To be honest, It turned out okay except for the fact that it's shaky and it kinda moves around a bit but it wasn't a complete disaster at least! I think I might do more of this kind of stuff because I do need to get into animating a bit more even if I am more of a pre production kinda girl. Challenge accepted.

So, I have a bit of an idea for a film, it's quite a personal one. I have a form of epilepsy and I was researching trying to find animations about or to do with epilepsy and there was barely any, the only ones I found were 10 second ones on the NHS website and they were just informative animations. I spoke to Kathy and Derek and they liked the idea and to just do some sketches and concept art. my coursemate told me to watch a few films which I'm going to do for inspiration.
During seizures I blackout and it made me think, what happens during this blackout? (apart from shaking and weird stuff of course) So I thought my main character could be epileptic and go into this dark and creepy dream world during the seizure and then wake up in the hospital? it's not set in stone yet and I still need to figure out a proper story but I definitely want to centre it around epilepsy, lets see what comes of this! :)

So as well as Fern's project, I've decided to join Amy's gang as I really liked her idea from the very start and just had to work on it! This is a bit of concept art I did on Photoshop. This project is still very early on in terms of a story and environments - but hey, it's a start!

So I thought about how i usually outline my drawings in black and decided to try something different with the characters, so i tried the cut out style and i think it was a success! I'm actually really happy with this and I'll definitely have a go at this with other characters.
Some car designs playing around with different colours. Trying to stick to the same colour theme as the street. Not the best clean ups, for some reason I struggle to get my lines smooth? maybe I need to play around with photoshop a bit more and see if there's anything I can do to change that, there may be some settings or something that'll change the smoothness
