For People Crazy About 2D Animation!

Acme Punched! is for people crazy about 2D animation. It may be enjoyed by beginners and others, but it is aimed at animators who know already something about the process of animation and the basics of character animation. In large part, it will attempt to provide a deep look into the problem solving that goes on in my head as I work out a scene, often in step-by-step posts that I will sometimes enter in "real time", without knowing in advance what the outcome will be. Mistakes and false starts will not only be included but emphasized, so that the creative process of animation will be portrayed realistically. And, while my own bias is for 2D drawn animation, many of the effects and principles discussed here can apply to CGI 3D animation as well. I hope the blog will prove useful and instructive for all.

No. 107, My Dead Computer

To all my fans and readers:
Last week my computer, an eight year old MacBook Pro, gave one last electronic gasp and died. I am in the process of buying and setting up a new one. This is expected to be ready in four or five days, after which my posts will resume. Thank you for your patience.

  1. Take care. I know how hard that can be to have something die out on you.

    I currently have a new PC I still need to set up!

  2. Awk, poor wee computer!
    Too much animation on its life

  3. Well as of yesterday, 1 September, I have my new computer up and running. We will be very happy together!
