東方[Touhou] animation progress

A few months ago I decided to make a short animation in homage to the Touhou Project game “Mystic Square”. I’m a massive long time Touhou Project overall (2013 was ages ago yall’), so I am taking my sweet time making this. I make things for me. 🙂

Not everyone can appreciate the sheer adrenaline rush from playing the games, they almost always have a masterful soundtrack that accompanies absolutely B R U T A L gameplay. The joy I get from Touhou is hard to express, but animation is the most perfect medium to try doing so. Here are just some progress GIFS. I wanna do ZUN proud.

This is the storyboard animatic I did. This is what I do for my job, overly timed out storyboards in Storyboard Pro.

Roy G. Biv’s Hyperdimensional Journey

I took a class at CDW this last semester called Advanced Projects which was basically let us do whatever sort of project we wanted. I will admit, this concept had it’s roots as a simple schmup game I had been painstakingly learning how to make in Game Maker, but the whole thing got a bit messy so I resorted to just boarding something vaguely inspired by the game. Here’s some vis dev as well as the final sequence. Moral learnt: freakin’ define what you’re making and make a THING. I might go back to this idea in time…who knows.

 

 

Pixar internship storyboard work

Since I’m shuffling around my ole’ storyboard portfolio, I’m taking out some of the story sequences I did during my Story Internship at Pixar in 2015. These were done with sharpies & china marker on paper, the old fashioned way. I feel like I’ve improved alot since then. It was a crazy learning experience I really cherish . Ah, memories.

NOTE: Don’t copy my work, please. I put this online because it was a big experience for me, not for people to copy.
