FULL VIEW. Especially if the ANIMATION isn’t showing, which it sometimes doen’t with tumblr.
I deeply regret not shading and outlining the red miles in the first section. but whatever. IT’S DONE! At last, its’ finished! I. AM. FREE!!!! FreeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEeeeee. And such perfect timing to finish, too. I’ve been ill for the past two weeks, but I think I’m finally coming out of it! Huzzah!
Okay, anyway, so right after the update, I abandoned everything I was working on. I wanted to draw everything from the updated; the dirkjake, the smooches, the anbroids, those freakin’ amazing faces Roxy was pulling, but I knew I didn’t have time really, and I thought a cool rocket/hoverboard pose would be the easiest way for me to satisfy my update arting needs. As I was drawing the board, I was thinking how damn familiar it felt. It really did remind me of Transformers’ Hot Rod (the original version) for some reason. Flames on red? Was that all? And then I remembered a scene from from TF:TM. Realisation hits, I remember why the board feels so comfortably nostalgic in that cheesily awesome way. [souce: check about 50 seconds in] Oh. OH! So that’s why! And then I had to abandon my fanart to make this animation. Dirk’s movements are ripped right from that scene, I’m not that good at animating! All major credit to the original animators of ‘Transformers: The movie’, back in 1986. Good times, when TF movies were about TFs, not annoying douchbags and their dates. No, I’m not a hipster, I’m just showing my age. This is what old people do, grouch about new things. Deal with it. So yup, all I did was recreate it to fit Dirk’s scenario. Took much longer than I thought it would. About a week I think!
Then today I spent all morning tussling with WMM trying to figure out how to convert this into an avi so it wouldn’t be all giffy, only to discover WMM doesn’t allow you to numerically set frame duration. Bugger it, I yield. Have a compressed fugly gif instead. Goddamn it. And now, back to drawing asks.
