Spring Animation Project <The Peacock Pearl> (Full Process)

Postby Luna » Tue Mar 17, 2015 9:02 am

The Teamwork idea started by Venoms (Kristina).
I was making an story on while Venoms (Kristina) and Rooster (Francisco) are bit busy with school and things.

Geebler (Junior) is going to try to do some environment designs and character designs! @v@~ And I am going to try to do some storyboards and the same things too~@v@~ Our journey is started! =] Looking forward if there are some crits or advice for us in the future soon! ^_^

Also hoping if more friend can join us and work together for this project to help will be very nice because that means more nice work and free time can be required! ^_^ (just a beautiful wish if some people are having free time~)

OK, Because I don't have school anymore, so I suppose have more free time.
So I wrote a story <The Peacock Pearl> for the Spring Project. I wrote by Chinese first and tried to changed to English for a while and edited many time too, but I think my English is still not perfect, so I am VERY HAPPY if anyone give me critiques of the story writing! Y@v@Y <3

meow... And because I know my English could be confusion, so I made the storyboard happen (unfinished) I am still working on the "Script".
It's the actually first time because Venoms (Kristina) and Rooster (Francisco) I started to feel I am close to my dream and can work hard for them!!! So I am very excited and I want to really working for it!
We are going to make an animation happen, but begin with... I haven't learn animation theory yet... so hope someone knows more about it can join in for this project! :D

The Story I wrote was based on Venoms (Kristina) advanced of Characters movement and Rooster (Francisco) 's Romantic color style.

First -->
Here is My Story PDF document I exchanged to image so I can upload here! ^_^
Huge happy with dear your critiques! <3
AGAIN:
Because we don't have any experience of making animation happen yet. So this first try we want to publish everything of our processing and hope some nice and experienced dear artists or any human @v@ friends can come to JOIN or Help to critiques us! o(∩_∩)o Thank You Very Much! <3

I have to take a notes for the project <The Peacock Pearl> now:

I found out that there are still so many steps that I didn't know to solve them yet~

1. Although Soy Milk and me were already thinking about the scripts and the storyboard. but for our company (One difficult Mr Wu Boss has given us the date that) 2015.06.25 (today) our Project <The Peacock Pearl> finally "正式立项" succeed. Started from today and I got my a little flexible 2 hours each day for compose more music.

2. Our team got some new problems need to solve now:

A. Soy Milk is trying hard to help me, but how to manage and understand and make a plan for "Team Timetable" --> Because Soy Milk doesn't know much about art, so little difficult to make a "time" to ask me. I believe "I can finish this first one by 2 weeks", but if I found 2 weeks is not enough or only less 2 weeks, then what should I do? And they also little worried that if "leader artist Luna" can do this job or not. They are thinking "Luna is too far brave than she should be..." TvT..... meow~~~ (crying~)

B. Artist DD's art style is Huge different than mine art style. What shall I do? I want to let everyone here using their best ability to do a project together, but how to solve this problem? ; v; .......

------------------------------------------------------------------
in the very ending, I want to take a notes of what my father told me --> when I having these problems I need to learn solve them.....

1. I was thinking that "don't wasting time for the useless things" -->
for example, A. "Luna, I think you are too brave and too big head that for us, we general doing something that closer to our ability, but maybe the way you are doing is like......" I was thinking it's a good thing to know, but I can't stuck too much of being sad with silly me and stop to do what I believe it can happen if we try our best..... Also maybe because there is no one reason to prove that it can fail me...... yet....(?) I hope not for this thing... B. "You are not good enough, why you are going to say the style of this art....." "I don't think this style...." "we need to be equal......"
Many things are right, but I think if they can't be solved means they are wasting time a little bit..... but Now I found out I need to take time to solve those happened and happening......... it's not waste time at all!!!!! It only means I lack of those Skill a lot!

But Luna...... How can you...... you are too small and not good enough yet................ they don't want to........... ; v; ........... Help, god (?!).............

I made a decision for Luka yesterday: he is going to have 2 character-designs
-->
one is when Luka is 8 years old,
another is when Luka is 18 years old.
I just finish Luka's 8 years old character draft today. I will upload the sheets once I have better lines(or colour).

Remember dear M said that actually everybody needs a shoulder... <3 ......... need to learn how to control the expressions so no one knows what .. am thinking about whatever sad mood or too sad or happy~ @v@// .. guess ... have been pulled into a river fall....... need the wings (?) .......
Too many young handsome boys and cute girls surround me, I have to close my eyes.... otherwise I might fall in their rivers......I will stop this falling before it happens....... </3 ........... too warm too soft... but my heart needs to learn to be Strong!
Here are the lists of how to design Small little Luka character (11 years old Luka) I thought about and did some research from 2015.06.29:
(Sorry for the language, because it's working in my company studio, so I didn't expect it can be all "understandable" till the Level version done I will translated them to English again back~ ^_^ --> for now, they are just me taking notes for "all processing" of <The Peacock Pearl> Project)
1. 單眼皮, 眼角下垂
2. 朝天鼻,塌鼻樑
3. Short messy hair (短髮)
4. 8 years old
5. Rustic farmer child (山村的孩子看了有共鳴)
6. 嘴有點凸出 嘴小 下唇厚些 (年齡小,透著些秀氣)
7. Body近直筒腰
8. 肩膀窄 (因為年齡小)
9. 頭大 (因為年齡小)
10. 眼睛大 (因為年齡小)
11. 衣服破爛 (補好的)
12. 嬰兒娃娃臉
13. 腦門大 (因為年齡小)
14. 皮膚較黑 (太陽曬的)
15. 草鞋 (?)
This landscape study need to do them everyday for getting more feelings of how Luka's story places are:
Image

Luka First character sheet idea design -> 11 years old
Image

I have made the decision for Luka's character designs.
Image

Here are 2 Luka characters designs are required: one is 11 years old & another character is 21 years old after the pearl growing during the 10 years' waiting for "her"(for the dream that even Luka doesn't know)...

My decision was:
* Luka has to be a very Poor Farmer Child character looking! So when audiences see him in my final animation/animatic the First glance will knows that Luka's Identity --> Poor Farmer Boy! <3

Also because the financial problem, The final version of <The Peacock Pearl 雀丹> "Animation" Project is going to be "Animatic" level, but I want to make this "Animatic" polished!

For some new problem I have been told, I have to "Speed Up the Project <The Peacock Pearl>" in my company, and there are still so many problems need to be solved~ Life~~~ ; v;~~~~~

Here are few more Storyboards for the Project <The Peacock Pearl>
Image
Image
Image
Couple of color for the project anyway.....
Image
--> The critiques for this Peacock with Color from my team are:
1. Too much blood
2. She thinks the peacock should be more beautiful than this image right now
3. The wings look like glass instead of real wing
4. Peacock's tail not beautiful and big enough (they were discuss it's a boy peacock or girl peacock) --> His(Milk) recommendation is "Make this peacock more look like a phonix~ more '仙氣' coming from this peacock."
5. She thinks the peacock just need to be "weak" without the blood. But I think I need the peacock needs blood (from it's mouth) <-- This is a discussion still not decided yet.

Sorry for hasn't update for a long time, I was super frustrated for over a month already when I found out that how bad my art skill is and how impossible this project is going from many friends and many places...... luckily I am still alive (unbelievable ;v;....) I start buying Storyboard books and reading them --> I have to read them now, even I don't understand the language... I think I haven't get this upset for working before (even.....)
It's the 3rd time to change the storyboard and I almost get nowhere near the middle yet.... and even the story has changed a huge... and it's all by my hands, I am keep killing my lovely lovely dear storyboards and keep killing them without a sunshine...........
without Chris's help I don't even know if I am still alive...... around 20 hours Zzzzz for last week wasn't much but I still so far away from my first step... My friends told me "Luna, it's an impossible Project, coz your skill hasn't get any near there yet..." Now I totally believe it...........

Luna......... I wonder can you still keep going for this dream..... I wonder if you have give it up....... Here are too much happened..... I think one day when I get enough sleep and some more time for life I will write them down here... but right now my eyes are hurt when I sees the screen.
Is this project is really impossible to be finished?....... I don't know but I guess my friends are probably right.......

By gone days. But it's full of challenges right now, I am learning and working hard from the beginning. I only know there is a sun comes after the night, but how many people can stay past the cold night ...... Human, don't give up please...... I am learning... I am learning...... I have to face today... Tomorrow will come if we still alive. I love...... see the "unknown"...... I am a beginner, but I will learn......

I know I will be very wet after kiss the rain, I can still wish that I might see the rainbow in the end... but will the rainbow really comes...... I don't know, and I even don't want to know it anymore....... Is my dear friend's right that if I keep dream my dream I might get hard to keep alive, I have to face the.....

Almost forgot, here are my some my recent thinking for the style, and here are some research list I have done for the animation style thinking~
(because the style I have choose before [and my friend Milk has chosen was too difficult and need to take me too much longer for each image {2D animation} But I don't have enough people to help me making it~ actually so far, I have to do everything by myself, so I have learned a lot. Because I bought few books and learned something from them and apply to my work in the same time~ ^_^ I found it's a good way to study and read book when I am doing a project! @v@b])
Anyway, here is the simple list of the style I was thinking, and the reason I was searching them because the style seems easer for me to do (but some of my artists friends still disagree with me, but I don't have too good art skill and don't have much help in the same time, so I have to believe I can do it, otherwise it might just... so I have to trust even it's not really tr....)

The list of those animations, 3 of them are very very old Chinese animations, and 3 of them are Japanese animations. :) I think those styles are the way I am close to! ^_^

I need to find a time to upload and manage it more, but right now I got a internet problem again. --> I need a VPN to login our forum now (it only happens recently, and I am in Beijing IP right now... just take a note...) But the Astrill VPN I am using right now seems always have the problem..... I was using a Chinese VPN very steady, but only 10G/month, not enough for me... It's a hard question now... But... I will try to upload more soon...
again during I am writing, I have to fix(close the window and reset the software again.)
