Having my hair a blue/purple color makes me feel like a sex droid.

Huh. The bleach completely sucked out the blue, but left some of the yellow and pinkish. Might be that those two colors were in deeper, since they'd been on more than a couple of days.

I think I was almost platinum blonde. Depending on how the light hit my hair, it was nearly colorless. I've been thinking of trying that for a long time but never quite had the guts to bleach it hard enough.

So my yellow-and-purple hair was starting to fade badly. It had a certain something, but it was way too pale for my taste. I refreshed the yellow dye, then splurped some Electric Blue down the sides and back.

It didn't really work very well. Read more... )

Also, while I'm putting silly photos up, here's a couple from the Hollywood trip. Read more... )

I animated tonight. For the first time in... Too long.

Just a fraction. But it's distinctly my design. My timing. Me. No trying to work from other people's drawings, chopping them up in that horrible Flash way I got stuck in. No planning, I just sat down with some punched paper and a marker and started drawing.

Sammi had wanted to go to the lab at school to get a little work done, and in a what-the-hell moment, I came along. And grabbed some of the paper she punched and just sat there.

It feels good. I miss it.

I went through Q* on every breakdown. Oh yeah.

No planning, no design. Didn't worry about keeping the volumes too consistent. I just drew.

We got chased out just as I was about to start working from the second pose into the third one. It wasn't much. I dunno if I'll put it online. After digesting food I might fill out the rest (I drew three keys, then did some funky breakdowns between them, and then filled in from the first key to the first breakdown in semi-random order).

Crap. I can still animate. I can draw stuff and have fun and make it move.

I'd kinda forgotten about that.

* "going through Q" - my own slang for the method of working that Richard Williams espouses in his book on animation. Essentially, if you have drawing A and drawing E, the obvious thing to do is to draw C, then B and D. It's simple and easy. But character and acting happen when, instead, you go from A to E via Q. Going through Q is where you can show how this character does a motion. It's also just more fun.

Also, my hair is yellow-and-blue-becomes-green. I don't think it works. Not on me, at least, maybe on nobody. It was an experiment because the yellow-and-purple was fading fast.

Today we went to Santa Cruz. Sammi's newly-magenta hair was cool, and I saw a lava lamp the size of my torso. Not some sort of faux lava lampoid thing, this was the real deal; unfortunately it was turned off.

No guesses needed as to who passed through my mind as I touched its cold, inactive, glass curve. Who else?

Also, I doodled. )
