In the last weeks my mind was just blown away by animation. As a synesthete and autistic female (note that gender is important here and we are not the same as male autistics, so forgot all what you know about autistic behavior right now), we think in images, and in my case, due to synesthesia, I think in color.
So, if you have to do a hierarchy, when I think or listen to someone, the first thing I see is the color of the words and the images of the meanings, in any case I fully listen to the words… this leads to some misunderstandings and weird images sometimes but is mainly funny (for me). But this is to talk in another post…
Following the concept of my way to perceive words and sentences, it may be an obvious thing, but I’ve just realized that I can resume my way of thoughts as animation frames, more precisely keyframes. I’m pretty happy with that because now I have another way to explain how my brain works but is limited to people who works in animation, although I think anyone can imagine it.
I’ve been struggling with my drawing level because I just don’t get anatomy right and I have forgotten that what I want to draw for is to communicate what I feel and think, sometimes I just don’t see when I’m off my path.
Anyway, what I wanted to show you is my progression in animation, that is quite fast and I guess this is thanks this thinking in frames that helps me with the right election of keyframes… 😀
Here are the rough animation tests or the line tests. I’ll be posting finished animations soon, these are what we do in class but I’m also working on some scenes that are more of a personal project.
