I don’t know about everyone here, but I for one am CRAZY excited for Diablo III on PS3. This multiplayer trailer alone is enough to get me pumped for it. I’ve been waiting for a good Diablo-like game on consoles for soooo long.
I think I’m done fiddling with this… I decided to do some classical animation for myself, and made this fun little cycle for the Potoo challenge over on the #CritterJAM group over on deviantART. This was a good excuse to exercise some of the concepts I’ve developed for using animated textures as colour fills in classical animation. It may not be absolutely perfect, but the effect is certainly eye catching. I tried outputting this as a convenient flash video, then as a animated GIF, but neither of those formats gave satisfactory results and reduced the image quality too much. So I opted to render out a looping video stream instead to maintain the best quality.

Classically animating for myself again, but digitally using ToonBOOM Harmony 10 on my slate PC today. Man, I miss actually DRAWING to make things move. Classical is sooo much more ALIVE than digital.. Oh well..
