i love the style.
great fly around.
are you going to animate anything in it, like the dragonfly?
 
  09 September 2002
Great stuff, I totally love NPR stuff and this was a top example. I have only one teeny crit - the little fly past gif looked too solid, which betrayed its CG origin.

It would be cool to get it to "boil" a little - change the line width, brush size as it rotates so it looks more like an animated painting (dunno, just my opinion, this may not be what you were going for).

Lovely work!

Raymonkey Thank you for your advises, i agree with you about thoes petals should feels softer, i will ajust it.

Looking nice, although the eyes are still a little toony - maybe remove the pupil. Definitely less 3d though.

I have found a couple of examples of "boiling" for you to look at:

Unnofficial Roobarb and Custard Shrine

The image shimmers every frame because each drawing is slighlty different from the next (I hope that makes sense).

Also the short film "Fishing" by PDI does it:

Fishing

This is a little small, but it wobbles as if it was painted on watercolour paper.

Also related, but not quite the same style is the Lambchop video produced by Shynola, which you can grab here:

Is a woman

Which I think is great (Although the mov is a little small)

Keep up the good work!

Waterlily

Nice.

I don't know your intentions for the final render, so this is only directed towards the sample. I'm guessing you just wanted to display the 3d nature of the effect with a turnaroung, but in the final render, something this beautiful, and it is, needs to have a very soft attitude. If you're using the piece in a Demo Reel or something, I suggest maybe a Moving Hold for the beginning showing hardly any movement at all. Animate the flowers as usual but only give a slight camera rotation fixed on the flower to enhance the illusion of space.

Lastly, perhaps the timing of the animation could mimick the nature of chinese ink. i.e. Heavily use of a combination of 3D and 2D Motion Blur and a Motion-Ghosting effect on everything in the scene to simulate ink-bleeding.

Was that Maya's standard renderer BTW?

I am makeing a formal clip with this style, i agree with your idea about how to animate these things.
2D Motion Blur and a Motion-Ghosting is great for express ink feeling, i agree with you. Well, yes, i render it with Maya's standard renderer. and i knew few rendering technic things also.
i will be patience, thank you read my mind. thanx a lot
