Weekly Animations 007: Lipsync “so nice” from JeffreyEsteban on Vimeo.

This took a long while, well I was also working on some VFX stuffs…

I had a lot of help from amazing people on this one as well!

Feedback is always nice!

I forgot to mention that the Ninja film I’ve been working on since January was done awhile ago! They’ll be showing in for a horror gore festival in the Plateau: http://mascara-popcorn.blogspot.ca/2014/03/body-horror-contest-trailers.htmlThe CG blood gushing out in the air was all me. Oh, and the last shot I needed to add atleast 80% more blood in the bar. The rest was done by our brilliant make-up and effects guy, he’s super cool. I met and learned so much being in an actual film set, mann, theres so many people working hard to create these shots. It waaaay easier to do camera and lighting in 3D, of course, but its not the same.Working with VFX was a lot of fun, I should really learn some more about it, really beneficial for my world domination plans later on.

render test. just forgot to try out adding lineartstill testing this out… blending 3d animation and landscape paintings. I got the basic idea down, now its just a matter of doing a lot of mistakes on it.Frankly, in this one, I think she’s too massive. I can’t see anymore…

Sunday morning

Sunday morning. While everyone’s watching Sochi, I woke up early to work on compositing. When I listed out all the vfx orders, it looked like a long work, but I got it worked out much easier than I thought before. It was fun decapitating, cutting arms, slashing cutting blood around, err, well in vfx, of course.



Then, my dad, every now and then, would ask to “clean up his face” on an old photo. My aunts and cousins have started filling facebook with nostalgic pictures, and some funny weird ones. Anyways, I wanted a break, so let’s do some photomanipulation!

I started cleaning it up with the clone stamp tool. I was suppose to just remove the pen streak, then he asked to “fix his hair” too. Ehh, I guess I just got carried away. I remember those days of practicing painting, it helped figuring out the shadows and forms of the face.


And I might as well adjust the image itself. Color balance, levels, the image auto function in photoshop made it easier. It is a bit burned, I find, I still dont have a good judgment on color harmony. This might take some time. My dad likes it though, that’s good. I almost even erased his left mole, hahaha!



It’s too bad I only got a low quality image, or actually it might have helped me do this faster, I think? Hmm, anyways, back to blood compositing.

It’s only Sunday noon. There is time.

Great works, like great journeys, are made one step at a time.

Inch by inch. Day by day.
