Hello there, I'm not entirely sure if this is the correct forum to post this in, but I am a brickfilmer, and few friends and I would like to create a Lego animation which features dialogue and also facial animation. In the past this has typically been done in post, but I would like to give it a try actually manipulating the faces. I came across some really terrific decal templates by Capt. Kirk a number of years ago, but they do not contain all of the basic mouth positions essential to animation: http://0.tqn.com/d/animation/1/S/7/2/mouthpositions.jpg Just wondering whether there are any graphic designers out there who might like to help me out? And if you'd like to see the sort of animation my friends and I have done in the past, here is an example: Cheers, Jayko
MatiPasio posted a topic in Brick Flicks & ComicsHello everyone! As you know I started making lego videos and today I tried to do a stop motion test. It's not very good, and unfortunately it's not panoramic, (in my future videos I will try to make panoramic brickfilms, I only have to change resolution of camera screen to 16:9) but I think it's ok for the first time. What do you think? Music in the video is from The Testament of Sherlock Holmes video game. Watch in HD! And sorry for my voice, it was morning when I was making it and my voice was... you know
One of the integral parts of comics is character dialogue, which is as valuable as the images themselves in conveying the story of the comics (of course with the obvious exception of “speech-less”/”silent-type” comic strips). Adding the character dialogue is usually done in conjunction with the post-editing of the images after the principal photography. At this particular stage of comic-making, one is expected to already have a general idea (or even better - a working script) on how the exchange of dialogue would be. This lesson will teach you how to add character dialogue in your comics – with emphasis to the proper usage of speech balloons and comic-book grammar.
