The 2012 Gerardable Demo Reel
Just a quick illustration of a little ballet girl I came up with in Illustrator.
Playing around in Photoshop and stock photos, I somehow came up with this. Nothing too interesting, but good to be back in Photoshop and playing around.
I decided to jump back into After Effects today and follow a nice little tutorial from ae.tutsplus.com (http://ae.tutsplus.com/tutorials/motion-graphics/use-color-to-control-your-textures/) which shows how to animate some bouncing cubes. Im not entirely happy with the animation as it is scripted not keyframed but did learn some cool little tricks about setting up custom sliders and linking them to expressions (Expression Controls). Very useful and Im sure they wont go to waste.
Well its different to Maya for sure, it looks like there is a lot that could be accomplished if you put your mind to it. I Started with the basic tutorial but was soon able to add a procedural terrain, clouds and even import a Maya object. Im looking forward to the rest of these tutorials.
Im about to begin a brand new project – Vue and Maya integration, and a little after effects – From what I have seen from the tutorials this looks like it could be a lot of fun and could produce some amazing results not to mention the amount I should learn.
Let the fun begin!
Just wanted to let you all know of my latest design, the Cre8ive Studio business card. Done in Illustrator over about an hour or so due to a sale. I dont think its the greatest work now that I have seen it printed, but it was a learning curve for sure.
Its the beginning of a brand new project, the Phoenix Psycology website. A simple website built using Either Concrete5 or Frog as a CMS. I havnt used either before so this will be fun.
While working on a project at my current job I have come across a small problem of 2 plugins not working together, creating conflict, Formbuilder and Yak. Although this sort of thing can happen quite often it would be great if there was some way of turning off a plugin for just one page. For example I do not need both the plugins running at the same time.
