EotD animated videos...:)

I finished two Energy of the Day animations for Moments of Awareness Tarot & Astrology. Yay...:)

February 20, 2014 and February 21, 2014.

This is the current daily project to get my AnimeStudio Pro animations and Psychedelic Aire music out there.

I'll be working on producing the MOA EotD for the day, week, month and year. Lot involved, but we should be able to get this workflow going!

There's only 4 days left on the Psychedelic Animations fundraiser!

Thanks for all your support and enjoy!

Have an awesome day!

Arg! Not pirate related...:)

My computer can't handle a lot of what I'm trying to accomplish! I'm trying to reduce file size and settings to no avail...:(

I'll keep trying different options until I can upgrade.

For now, I have to try less complex artwork and scenes.

I wish Centurylink would let us at least get higher speed internet! It's not available where we live, yet.

Oh well. New day, new challenges...:)

Have an awesome day!

Only 9 days left! Other creative updates...:)

I only have 9 days left on my Psychedelic Animations fundraiser! If you can support my Psychedelic creations, please do. Thank you for all your support in this endeavor!

I finished a portion of my Octagon After Effects and Photoshop animation. The main AnimeStudio Pro 9.5 Dude Jaway Sr. character animation portion is done and working in After Effects!

Here are some of the tutorials I'm going through for this and future animations...:)

Adobe After Effects tutorials:

41. The Blue Planet: Video Copilot -  Very cool rotating Earth tutorial!

40. Earth Zoom: Video Copilot - Awesome Earth zoom!

Creating the AE Cosmos: Comets, Meteors & AsteroidsCreative COW Library: Neat particle effects!

52. Dead Planet: Video Copilot - Excellent Dead Planet tutorial!

Importing 3D models into Adobe's After Effects: Great tutorial, I was going to import the 3D planet I made in Photoshop, but found it easier and more efficient to use the The Blue Planet tutorial directly in After Effects. Still a great tutorial!

Adobe Photoshop tutorials:

Make Your Own Planet in Photoshop!: Creative Whim - Simple and good planet making tutorial!

3D MOON AND PLANETS: PanosFX - Also another great planet and moon tutorial!

Spaceship Concept Design Pipeline in Photoshop: digital-tutors - A very in depth Photoshop tutorial for creating a spaceship. It goes through the entire process from concept through completion. Very awesome! This site is one I would love and need to subscribe to. It covers professional design for working and aspiring creative types...:)

It's weird. It's almost like I have this obsession with Space, Planets and the Universe??? It's like, all connected some how...:)

I'm working on some more After Effects stuff first, then some more Photoshop.

Have an awesome Sunday and week ahead!

Yay! First contribution! Thank you!

I received my first contribution! Thank you so much, and the first Psychedelic Animation AnimeStudio Pro portion is rendered and ready to be composited in After Effects. The next step…:) Thanks again and stay tuned…:)

Another beautiful cloudy day to stay in for work and play...:)

Dude Jaway Jr. says my Dude Sr. guy should be riding an asteroid through space...:) Tutorial time...:)

See/hear you online...:)

Have an awesome day!

Updated Psychedelic Aire web site...:)

I had some glitches that should now be fixed???...:)

I had some wrong info. in my Addthis links that should be working now...:)

Psychedelic Aire

Signed up to Pinterest. Yay!

Other sites:







I'm sure there is much more I can do!

I will be updating my Gallery pages ASAP to be easier to navigate. I was in love with my sprite menu, but that will be prohibitive when I update my galleries with old and new images. Stay tuned!

I need to work on my AnimeStudio Pro 9.5 Dude Sr./Octagon animation...:)

Have an awesome rest of your day!

Back at it...:)

I have finished the initial Dude Sr. Octagon animation! Now I'm going to figure out how to get it into Adobe After Effects for finishing touches and release to the world!

Psychedelic Animations crowdfunding campaign.

It's raining again up here in the mountains...:) The road had almost washed out, but still sort of drivable...:)
This could be an interesting fire season around the West???

Have an awesome day!

Braved the slush...:)

Our road is washing out quick with the much loved and needed rain/sleet. Going to work on animation more before signing up to more social networks...:) Have an awesome day!

Crowdfunding novice...:)

I totally jumped in before doing the research! Oops! In an effort to further my creative endeavors, I started an Indiegogo campaign. Psychedelic Animations. -->

I've just started reading the how to information, so this will be a bit rough for now. Basically, I'm attempting to crowdfund the ability to do what I love and hopefully create music and animation that people will enjoy! I've been working relatively non-stop on my first animated character Dude Sr. (yes, me in animated form). The process is very challenging! Part, learning the software. Part, realizing the years of life experience into animated form. Part, misc. computer/software/brain crashes.
I'm using AnimeStudio Pro 9.5 and Adobe After Effects CS4, Adobe Photoshop CS5, and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, occasionally Adobe Illustrator CS5 and of coarse Adobe Dreamweaver CS4.
I know, old but able to run on my 32bit DELL.

I keep forgetting to eat...:( Maruchan Ramen is in the nuke-box now...:) Still love the stuff! We like to add a garlic clove for flavor and  immunity boosting. I'm trying to hold a knife like a chef (thank you Peace and Top Chef...:) So far no lost digits!

We have the Olympics, Fear Factor and Outer Limits on in the background! Wow! Amazing athletes and crazy people/stories. I thought I was some kind of freestyle skier back in the 80's when my friends and I would Dead Head to Colorado and ski Keystone and A-Basin...NOT...:) I remember when snowboarding was banned from most ski resorts a Long, Long Time ago....We were lucky to pull (accidentally) do a flip off a cliff.

Well, I've been rambling, so I'll get back to it. Have an awesome Wednesday and I'll talk to you all later.

Reworking Tie-dye...:)

I'm working on my AnimeStudio Pro Dude Sr. character, and screwed up on my tie-dye...:(
This particular tie-dye has tons of vector layers and I accidentally modified the main layer and distorted it bad. Now I'm fixing that and should be able to animate him...I hope...:) Sun is shining! Yay...:) Have an awesome day!

CAD software.

I've always dreamt of owning/using AutoCAD, but have not pursued an Architectural degree, and at a USD cost of $4,195 it is way out of my realm at this time. I'm downloading a trial version of AutoCAD 2014 for fun. There is a popular program on the market used for the WikiHouse stuff called SketchUp with a cost of USD $590 that makes it attractive. I'll look into both options.
Just an F.Y.I. When my highschool career counselor asked what I wanted to do for a living, I narrowed it down from an infinite number of things to three: Pilot, Architect and Commercial Artist. I really want to do all three+. I started college in 1988 in Business Aviation/Pro Pilot program while taking tons of art/computer classes. I ran out of money before finishing flight school, and have tried on numerous occasions to finish without success. I will not stop trying to do all three...:) Finished my degree in 2011, and am working on Animation/Music as I continue doing the things I love. Some day I'll make a living doing those things. Had to just do it. Keep learning and creating! I sense Kickstarter in my future...:)
Have an awesome day!

House building idea...:)

Cruising Facebook, I read and looked into an amazing product. Thanks Jan Stover. Here's the idea...:)
Create and print a home design with WikiHouse then cover it with Concrete Canvas. Voila! I'm sure all the other necessary infrastructure stuff can be implemented utilizing numerous Earth friendly techniques and materials. Hemp based products can cover most of the other home requirements...:) It's the dream, that is getting closer to manifestation! Have an awesome day!

Been hard at it most of the week...:)

I've been working hard to finish my Dude Sr. character in AnimeStudio Pro 9.5. I had a way too complex bone/animation rig, and kept crashing my old computer. Tried tech support, but they can't just give me a new computer...:) Took a day to play Battlefield 4 Xbox 360 because my system crashed after a Windows update...:( Blue screen crash. Not cool Microsoft!

I'm working on my Dude Sr. character more, and watching some tutorials about facial shading/highlighting from Incredible Tutorials. These guys do a great job with tutorials!

More snow (2-3") and more on the way (4-9"). So, I'll stay indoors and work before relocating it...:)

Have an awesome day and weekend!

Day of rest, sort of...:)

I'm awake when the sun is up, sort of...:) Still working on animation (had lots of computer crashes and had to try some new techniques). Moving along, well my character is...:) It was working great, until I tried to do too much and had too many programs running...:( Had to hard-boot). Well, back at it. Have an awesome day!
