Thursday Night

Sketched this self portrait thing last night. I gave up pretty quickly when I figured I needed to get back into observational drawing. It’s been a while.

My classmate and fellow Gundam fan, Aaron, animated this. I’m posting this because it’s awesome, and I asked him how he made the fire/energy effect and I want to keep his answer in a safe place: my blog.

“I used Particles in After Effects to flow up and combined with a glow effect, vector blur, and light burst. I used a luma to make the center of the aura transparent (I made it so the beginning color from the center was white and keyed that out)”

Thanks Aaron!

    I think the self-portrait is gorgeous, personally. And your friend Aaron’s character animations are AWESOME. So much personality!
