After some months of incertidumbre, I’m happy to share with you that Synfig proyect is again on the road. There has been some code improvements lately that goes from a new unified Rotate/Scale/Translate tool to a great improvement in stability in the windows version.
Aslo we are looking forward to a new host solution that hopefully aid us to grow in a proper way. At the moment we still at http://synfig.org
In Synfig forum we use to do a monthly challenge to keep the usage of Synfig. This is the last challenge entry I’ve done. I tis completely created with Synfig. The intention was to use the random capabilities of Synfig.
This is the new face of Mr. Moloch. I’ve simplified the face making it easier to animate and draw. Also I’ve tried to give it a “mad looking”. I think that the ears are quite big but I like them that way. I will trace to Synfig and see how does it look. I want to test some different expressions over it to definitively select this face.
The color is something pending. Maybe I paint it with a weird color to make it different. Aslo I would like to paint its mouth of different color, like its stomach. I’m enjoying it!.
Again, Krita and a piece of paper on the tablet were my best partners.
This character has been rounding my head a lot of time. This is going to be the main character of a set of adventures of a shipwrecked in an island. But he is not alone. There will be a partner that would make his l(already difficult life) a hell. Most of the time the problems comes on search and obtain food (look how thin is he).
This is a first sketch. Maybe can suffer some variations and simplifications. Let’s see where do I arrive with this.
I used Krita to create it and I plan to trace in Synfig to animate it.
