New Brackenwood & BCA ch3

Posted by chluaid - November 16th, 2008


» BCA Chapter 3
I've finally released the third BiteyCastle Academy chapter, and this one's all about how to get graphics into Flash, whether by importing or creating them with the drawing tools.

The first two chapters were free but with Chapter 3, I give you a choice of how much you'd like to pay (from: not much - - up to - - more than enough).

In the 55-page PDF, I talk about the process of setting up a scene for animation. We cover separating scene elements onto separate layers, painting, mixing colour, gradients offer a couple of cool little tricks that aren't too well known.

No dates yet but I've started work on a new Brackenwood short. I'm using ToonBoom Digital Pro, which is great and all, but many of the effects I want to use probably won't see a successful export to .SWF. If that happens, I'll try my luck at importing a .FLV into Flash so that I can upload to Newgrounds. I got a webcam set up in my room to document the whole project and you can also catch updates on the WoodenBlog.

Good to hear your working on more brackenwood. Almost thought you gave up on it.

Yay for more Brackenwood. Keep up the good word, Adam.

I'd really like to actually see you draw something to see if you do things in one stroke or many strokes and refine it later

when roughing stuff out, I use many strokes.. but when cleaning up, I draw as long and continuous a stroke as possible. Just a personal method though and not always the best way (cos if you do one long continuous stroke for a character outline, then you fuck it up at the end, you press UNDO and you lose the entire outline :P

I am totally watching you read your comments!

If you see me giggle, it's at this one :D

Dude...it does matter what it's about...your animation is amazing!

Note: I love ToonBoom...my favorite show done on it is Grossology.

You know how to sue ToomBoom? That's AMAZING!

there's a new ToonBoom out called Animate and it's very close to Flash.. same price too. I've been using it for a few days and pretty impressed. Wrote a review on my site so check it out if you're interested. It has a personal learning edition that doesn't expire too.

You made my day with this news ! I can't wait to see your new work !

Awesome! Your BCA work is great, I'll make sure to get the third chapter.

Also, looking forward to your next Brackenwood piece.

I love dicks.

ill be watching you,

LITERALY

Stop eating and get back to work!

>:)

man's gotta eat!

wow... it looks awesome...

How long have the other academies bin out for?
And "How much would you like to pay?": Classy.

HOLY SHIT GUYS LOOK- HE'S TOTALLY ANIMATING A HORSE OR SOME SHIT. IT'S SOME DUST OR SOMETHING I CAN'T TELL BUT IT'S PROBABLY AWESOME DUST.

I agree with RaptorIV ..you should do a speed draw or something maybe

check my YouTube channel, I got a couple there ;)

I'm glad your finally making something new. I'd really like to see more of a story than just stunning animation.

Yes!!! Now I have to go train my jaw. Last time I was so awe struck by the beauty I was witnessing from Waterlollies that my jaw came down and crashed into the floor breaking it to a 1000 pieces.

ouch.. sorry bout that :P

I'm proud of you man, can't tell anythin' about your tallents, just... A 37 years old guy, so much experience... Woah... Plz, God, let my wish come true, let sir Adam Phillips live forever, lol! :D I'm so happy that you're still workin' at your own projects. Yeah, btw, I have interestin' question about your personality. Where are you workin'? It's about animation also? :3 Cheers. Good luck with your awesome works. :3 (am I just said: good luck? ppffftt...) XD

thanks man :D
I work from home, but take on freelance work from all over. I've been working entirely over the internet for the past 4 years and have only met about 5% of my clients face-to-face.. best job ever!

Yay!

And now you have to make sure you dress nicely in your own home

yeah.. no more early mornings answering email in my undies.

oh boy

He was drawing with the tablet and now he is back on to Newgrounds. "chluaid-vision" is the best!

answering emails in your undies?
you are like a modernised bogan

I have a question
why no stubbies around the desk?

cos beer is bad.. I drink vodka or gin from classy tumblers!
