Back for a brief moment

Hey people

It's been awhile, two years to be exact. I was always here though, but in spirit (lol). I wanted to show you guys what animation I've been working on and finished. I lost my job due to the pandemic, so I figured I make a small project for my portfolio. As always, I'll try to keep it brief and cover the main points on how I put this animation together.

With every animation, starts with an idea, and my inspiration for this project was video games. Mainly Metal Gear and Time Crisis because I was very enthralled by the action and the cinematics of those games. So I wanted to make something that was action packed and fast paced. At the same time however, I wanted it to be rather simple with the models I've used and the environment I made.

I storyboard my project so I can lay down the foundation of the animation. Back in the day when I was a young lad, I would just go and make an animation with no plan and it would take me a very long time because I would pause and think about the next thing that
I was going to do. So have a plan when you do animations or when you're doing any project really. Also, I would like to add that rigging models is very time consuming.

Ragdoll physics

This part was the most time consuming and technical thing I have every done in an animation. I thought about just removing this aspect of the animation but I didn't want to give up on it, since it added more to the animation realistically. There's an add-on I bought on the blender market called ragdoll and I thought to myself, wouldn't this be a nice addition to the animation. Oh boy was I going to be in a world of headache. Basically the add-on would break the flow of the animation and it wouldn't work at times. The person who made the ragdoll add-on fixed it and all was well in the end.


Mr. Raizel, I don't feel so good!

Adding in the muzzle flash for the guns was probably the easiest thing of the animation. All I needed to do was apply a texture to a basic plane, make it transparent, and add in a glow effect to it. Then I just needed to add every muzzle flash to each character. Hmm...that does sound a little complicated.

But certainly not least, putting everything together. This was also a long process to get through, finding sounds for the right animation parts and timing everything. Then I just transfer the Adobe Premiere file to After Effects and polished the project some more.


Here's my animation, I hope you guys enjoy it!

I saw a video about
japanese animation and this song was playing.

And as always, have a good one guys,
until next time, peace, and thank you.
