...fine know, I really hate it when several people have invaded every forum, every tutorial and every Q&A post regarding flash scenes and go on and on and on and ON about how scenes in flash suck and how terrible they are and how you should really work on the root timeline and use movie clips instead and so on and so forth so a person can't find the answer they're looking for.

You know what I really, really fucking hate? 

It's when they're right.

I've been trying to get this damned point and click 'game' working for weeks now using scenes and running into the most insane, arbitary and irritating problems.

Half an hour later after linking things to the timeline? the base programming* is done, ready for me to start animating.

*if you could call endless buttons with 'on release, goto and play scene 1 frame x' (or whatever it is) programming. I certainly don't.

(I'm actually really excited about doing this, even though I'm planning on going waaaay OTT with this one. If I can pull it off, and I think I can, it'll be a tidy little portfolio piece)

Sims related (yeah, this journal has turned from 'aelia uploads a lot of pretty coloured things' to 'aelia talks a lot about shit, promises stuff that never appears and is generally boring' Sorry about that ;) ) stuff soon, like a couple of requests I've taken on, and some of the stuff I've shown you. Now I've gotten the SS out of the way I'm free to do what I want :)

Toy Story 3 = <3 Just got back from it and wow :D I was kinda afraid of what would happen, and whether it would kill the first two for me, but all is good :D

(And that short :D Watching the 2D work there really kinda brings back that this is what I want to do with my life :D)

*trundles off to watch Le Tour*

Okay self, the next time you think that fucking about with your tablet settings is a good idea?


You will spend the next four hours teeth-gnashing in rage as you try and get it back to the settings that, y'know, work.

And I swear these nibs don't last as long as they used to.

And...I am in the process of setting up a art/animation based journal on here for me to dump sketchy type wips and such that don't really belong on my DA or that I don't wish to be seen by various RL friends until they're done and dusted.

That and silly little animation type things while I try and sort out a) a job in said field and b) a Tropfest entry.

[personal profile] aelia_art if you're interested :) It'll likely as not start off with some crappy gestural/pose maniacs drawings, but I gotta start somewhere.

No exclaimation mark, for I am far too tired to even think straight.

I am done with my film. It is with Terry, about to go on the end of year dvd for screening night in all it's faceless, shitty glory, and I am so fucking glad I don't have to look at it again.

Now if you'll excuse me, I am fetching both the bottle of green ginger wine, and the bottle of ginger ale as a mixer (it should be noted that I am a fucking lightweight) and a good book and am going to relax. It will be fucking fantastic.

You know you need a break when...part two

...when your mother remarks on an actor running in an odd way, and you look at it and think, 'yes, that's because his passing position is on a down rather than an up' and THAT MAKES PERFECT SENSE TO YOU.

Agh. BRB, nervous breakdown tiem.

(no subject)

I require your opinions. The sweet, sweet opinion of ones who are not animation teachers who will instead of telling me what I wish to know, telling me all of what is wrong and what I must do to make it better :P

Would  you all mind telling me which character your eye follows and when?

Thank Zeus...

Or whatever deity (or not) it is that you suscribe to. I rather like Zeus for reasons that can only be garnered by repeated viewings of Jason and the Argonauts. (Harryhausen FTW!)

Er, that aside, I am SO fucking glad class is over for a semester and that I have a month of not having to catch the sardine cans that the Brisbane council claims are 'trains'.  All I have to do now is email a few last minute things to one of my teachers and I ARE FINISHED!

Which pretty much means I'll put up the dresses I showed you the other day, plus all the random other crap I've assimilated since in the next couple of days. This will likely as not be right after I consume my body weight's worth in chocolate, coffee and various other foodstuffs that bring me pleasure.

ETA: Hee, forgot to add that I found a dress pattern of awesome -[]=tags

It got here last weekend, and now that I have a month off, I fully intend to make it. With I suspect a lot of help from my mother.
