Melody Breeze by MisterAibo Melody Breeze by MisterAibo
You might ask: "Why do you still record at home?"
Surely I could afford renting - if not owning - a recording room. Of course I could. But there is something about a nice, homey room. The warmth of sun, the soft smell of wood and books, the feeling this is where I belong.
Even though it was a pain to get the acoustics right.


--- Commission
Made for *Night-Ferocity. She wanted a cinmeagraph of her OC Melody Breeze singing in a recording room.

--- Technical
Five iterations, animated since the first (did background the last). Major change to the images composition in the last one.

The mouth proved interesting. I'm working on a script that will help me accelerate mouth-creating process.

The original SVG can be found here: [link]

Hello!
First of all everything about this picture works really well. You have her in an interesting spot, with a good background. You really did well with the vectors! The animation loops nicely and really adds to the overall feel of the image. The subtle animation of the record (the needle bobbing up and down especially!) really shows your attention to detail. Her hair moving goes along with the body moving, and looks realistic. The frame with the little gold plates adds to it as well, and reminds me of the pictures in Harry Potter.

The only error I see is a little black glitch at the tip of her hair, between the headphones and the base of it.

This is really inventive and innovative, and has become one of my favorite pieces of OC work. GREAT JOB! :D

Starting off, Melody Breeze looks beautiful.  This is so cute, and it's one of my top favorites.

As for a critique, I agree her hair looks like it's hinged on top with the side still kind glued on.  Her wing also looks like its like it's on a floating joint independent of her movement.  I'm not sure, maybe it needs to be readjusted in the loop to about 1/4 of the cycle of the animation.


It's more than I could ever expect to do, and as critical as we could all be it's amazing.  Just amazing.

I am now beginning to realize that this is not what you mean by critique, and I look stupid... as usual

The only issue I can find with the animation is that the front of her hair seems to be glued to the ponytail; the short part of her hair shouldn't move as much as the long ponytail. Nevertheless, it's a fantastic work.

I guess. It didn't look that good if the hair moved less, though.

jeez...this must be really hard to animate, vector, layer and everything else you do in order to get this to work :O great job though! :D

Actually, it was much easier than you'd think. SVG's own tools make it incredibly easy to make an animation like this. You just have to know what should move. Get the basic idea - like rhythmical wobbling - and then it's just the question of adding a few rotations here and there.

I already had the gramophone from earlier (one of my first experiments into SVG animation) and so the biggest problem was the speech, which just made me create own tool for that. Which spanned my (upcoming) editor, aniGen.

Also, it's funny to see how much simple composition will do. Consider this previous version - all I did was reverse the room (and then reverse the musical notation on the walls back because OCD) and it looks much better.

I think it's mostly the small details that make animation work. Things your brain doesn't even consider considering.

Anyway, thank you.

oh really?! That's great! Well, I have to say that animation looks very complicated to the start but it gets easier after several attempts ^^ but you're welcome :D
