Not creepy enough!

Post by 3deeguy » Sun Feb 08, 2015 8:54 pm

I thought the topic of this animation would be fairly popular on YouTube. It's like trying to guess which song is going to be a 'hit'. Some other videos on the same topic haven't generated much interest but I still enjoyed making it. I used SmartBones, texture fill, Z-axis, a 'stormy sky' image and YouTube music.
I don't want to creep anybody out. If you've seen my posts you know I'm harmless. I don't mind if you jump on me for the topic. :|

Cheers, Larry

Hey 3deeguy,
Personally I would cut to a shot of a REAL eyeball rather than use an animated one. The animated eye tends to let the mood drop off and you need to keep building up the creepyness :)

DK and Chucky, I wish I hadn't been afraid to ask the forum for feedback.
Animating the engraved eye on the dollar is a major challenge. That is a great idea but in order for it to work it would have to look like it was on the dollar.
I'm gonna try.

Some years ago I animated Ben Franklin http://slowtiger.de/examples/franklin.mov in AS.

The raw material was some hi-res scan of a dollar from wikipedia.

slowtiger, I continue to be amazed at your knowledge and your generosity in sharing it. I remember telling my wife a few years back that a professional animator from this forum (you) drew diagrams and made a video clip to help me learn this stuff. It made me work even harder.
Thank you.
Cheers, Larry
