While I’ve been in Portugal, I couldn’t find any time to continue doing my dailies. Ever since I’ve been back, it has been difficult to get back into the flow of things – as you know, a cold engine takes a while to start. Well, there’s that, as well as a little bit of burn-out.
As such, after 55 episodes, almost 8 full weeks, I’ll take the project and put it on ice.
Maybe this will be the 56th episode:
The theme for the day is “Simpsons”. For all the many times Bart told people to “eat his shorts”, I don’t think I’ve ever really seen it happen. Maybe one time, but I can’t remember. Might have been a dream sequence for him.
Might as well have someone he does have control over do it.
Our attic was a bit easier to get to than those American contraptions you’d see on TV (like the one in the picture below). I just had stairs that went from one room to the attic, which was a massive thing, since I lived in a really large house. It was never an interesting part of the house though – just lots of insulation, a boiler and some random knick-knacks stored there.
I can see why someone would be afraid to go there though if you had a trap door, especially when I’ve learned what a mimic was.
Today’s theme was “Captain America”. I’ve seen a few people animate the Cap throwing his shield, but I’ve thought it was interesting to see the camera fixed on the shield itself (without spinning the camera along with the shield, that would be puke-inducing).
Quad bonk pinball shield is the result:
Yesterday I had to catch a flight. Unfortunately I’ve also caught a cold right before it. By the time I got to Portugal, I was sore all over and my nose was stuffier than a turkey on Thanksgiving.
Thankfully my friend I’m staying at here has plenty of medication, so I’ve felt well enough today to do two pixels in one day! Granted, the quality has suffered quite a bit since I’m not on my usual setup, nor did I feel like spending 3 hours on each.
Here’s the one I missed, “Toad”:
The theme for the day is “Jetpack”, so I thought of using the Jetpack to attack other worms in… well, Worms. Of course, Worms being the game that it is, some of your plans will backfire spectacularly. Case in point:
This scene from the battle of Helm’s Deep in Lord of the Rings 2 (which was actually the first Lord of the Rings I saw) was the moment when the character of Legolas changed to me from being “that cool elf dude” into “unadulterated bad ass”.
