Pencil Test

Animation Jet Pack pencil test from mike Carlo on Vimeo.



Busy as hell, did this in my free time. It's not finished, but it's been such a long time since I posted anything that I wanted to put up what I had so far. I'll continue to update as soon as I have more.

yo dude this is sweet! definitely doing what you were talking about with the animating forces over shapes per se.

so many different angles and perspectives too! i think i get stuck animating on one plane a lot. it's tough to break my brain out of it! but here you're all over and it totally works. jetpack was a great idea to move the character around and try different things. i really dig the weightlessness when he's floating.

solid.

unbelievable work dude. you totally nailed the timing of the floating bit down. really like the way you change perspectives (it feels like its really moving in space). i hate you. -joking.

ps. i think i might hit you up for some advice on the tail of my cat walk.

really nice, Mike... fun and loose, and the clarity is pretty- darned tight for roughs!

keep up the great work, you've def inspired me to get on some of my own loose (drawn!) animation.

Hi, Mike. Tons of great work on your blog. As I scrolled down, I found myself saying, "Oh...I've seen this...and I've seen that..." You get your hands on quite a few projects! Keep rockin' in NY!

Hey dude
Thanks so much for the comment on the short, it was really cool.
It's always awesome to hear from other artists, especially ones as talented as yourself.
your stuff is crazy good man, seriously.
Your reel is pretty crazy, a lot of great stuff, especially at 1:12, when that chick eats the turkey, really really funny.

Wow 20 comments!! That's pretty sick and probably the first or second time this has happened. Fortunately the reason I haven't been able to post or finish anything lately is because I am crazy busy with work, but now I think I am alittle more motivated to get shit back on here. Thanks guys.
