I believe this is my third tutorial with Ducky 3D. The final animation was absolutely stunning and it only took 10 minutes to create. That is the thing that absolutely blows my mind about this software, how something that looks really complicated is actually pretty easy to make.
One day I want to be a professional animator and knowing how to code makes your job that much easier.
Around December of last year, I researched the best websites where I could learn to code for free (or at a reasonable and affordable price). Some great website I found included: code.org, codeacademy.com, khanacademy.org and freecodecamp.org.
The two websites I am currently using are Khan Academy and FreeCodeCamp. To be a complete beginner and have learned so much so far, I am grateful for everyone who contributed to these lessons.
Not only do I want to become a professional animation, I want to create my own websites. I really my current SquareSpace website but I definitely have changes that I want to make. However, SquareSquare can be limited with the changes that I want to make.
For example, when it comes to the pages where I have my artwork, I want my images to be viewed horizontally (not vertically like it currently is). I really like how artist Loish display’s her artwork.
Also, when it comes to the blog, I would rather have the sidebar dates on the left side instead of the right. It’s just little tweaks that I wish that I could make but can’t. Hopefully in the future I will be able to code my own website with exactly what I want.
Until then, SquareSpace is a great place to store my artwork.
JJ signing out.
Until next week.
As the title suggests, I’m back from my week off. Between you and me, I didn’t go to a beach or anything like that, I stayed home and continued to make art.
After recently finishing the ‘100 Day Challenge’, I felt recharged and renewed. I decided to tackle something I wanted to do for a while but just didn’t do…make my first 2D animation in Blender 2.8.
Lately when it came to my Instagram account, @jjanneanthony, I was feeling uninspired. I just felt like everything that I was creating was boring and everything I was posting was equally as boring. So I needed a week break to focus on what to do next and bring that excitement back.
Matias Mendiola, teacher of the grease pencil class, was great and really broke down how he made his short western 2D animation.
