Losgar animation 3 by Sirielle Losgar animation 3 by Sirielle
This is a screen cap from my Losgar animation test 2009. Inspired by the burning of the ships in "The Silmarillion" and it's story variation from "The History of Middle-earth" vol. XII.
:spotlight-left: :film: Losgar animation #3 [link] at Vimeo :spotlight-right:
+ a side comics-clip at YT [link] where Celegorm explains why not You Tube (is there a remedy?)

More details are in the video descriptions, please check them.

And enjoy!

All the rest of day I'm under the impression of your animation...
I'm lost for words, simply great!      
  and the face of Feanor...  this is the best Feanor I have ever seen!

Thank you, I'm glad you think so :thanks: This is not my final take on Feanor (nor others, these are old sketches), but definitely I got there character I wanted Feanor to have.

I'll tell you what... =)
a) Your artwork induced a very colourful dream to me, and I coud memorize it. Too bad I was waken up by an unwanted call. =)
b) I TRULY think you do great to illustrate Tolkien exactly in this format, not a movie, not a cartoon, but the moving pictures getting alive with a very precise choise of music. These kinds of changing images are very dream-alike, I  believe it's a true pure power here.
c) You've left a very correct incompleteness in your story, and it counts, unlike all those movies. You've been so respectful to a viewer to imagine the rest, I adore it!

I'm waiting (impationately!) to see MORE of your works! 

Kindest regards, 
Elena

Better refined drawings with a bit of motion ;) I'll try to capture something more than moving backgrounds, but a real movement of beings will be hard. I'll probably keep it in a form of transforming images. When I have time and muses lure me to it.

that sounds great! actually, this technique fits your videos very well, and leaves more space for refinement in the drawings you use (: real flash animation is tough! i feel inclined to try a bit of it, but i have no idea of how to do it XD

I didn't plan to do it in flash - as vector graphic, but such can be done in ToonBoom or any other animation software - they're mostly made for flash animation. If you want to learn it get trials of ToonBoom, TV Animation and other - check here, the entry is old, but programs still up to date: [link] There was also something like manga studio for animation, similar to ToonBoom. I haven't run any trials, yet, saving them for serious job.

Widać że się napracowałaś przy tym :) Nigdy nie zastanawiałam się jak ten moment (Maedhros dowiadujący się o spaleniu statków) wyglądał - Twoja wersja wydaje mi sie bardzo prawdopodobna. Zwraca uwagę na emocje tej postaci, o których nie myślałam wcześniej. Bardzo klimatycznie pokazany bardzo ważny i symboliczny moment w książce.

The animation looks great! You must have a lot of patience to draw all that :P The music is very good too. I would love to see more of your videos, they're a true homage to Tolkien's work :)

Thank you :D Indeed I do have patience for such things, only lack in knowledge to make all I want, ahhh. Music is by Blear Moon, check his L.fm profile, where you can listen to free tracks: [link] :love:

Ah, the Losgar picture!
Well, I've already expressed my thoughts about this great painting, so I'll just say that the animation was very good too! The music you used was haunting:)

Glad you like it! :thanks: In fact your comment finally brought me to rethinking the case and posting the video on-line. In 2009 I thought I'll polish it and then post, but never got back to it. Also the software I used for the second part run out (it was a trial), so I don't even have possibility to remake those sequences without making them anew in a different program. Maybe one day I'll do, but not now. Anyway here is your answer to the question if that's Feanor :)

Credits for the music go to Blear Moon, check his L.fm profile, where you can listen to free tracks: [link] I guess he's got them in more places, for I've found them in Vimeo Music Store, also for free - to use in non-commercial videos. But yes I had to browse avilable tunes at Vimeo, select a few fitting from which I've finally chosen the Arctic fog :love: so this way there is a little of me in it.

Breathtaking. The Losgar video blew me away. I've been seriously understimating your talent if you do stuff like this on a regular basis. Amazing work. Truly.

Great you like it! :thanks: I love doing stuff like this, pity I often don't know how to make all these ideas in my head ;) Animation-wise. I still have to learn how to make movement, but it's impossible to animate all in real, I'll stick rather to moving images with a little of animated details. In the future if I come back to this project :)

It works much better this way. I adore how you did Feanor with the glow of the Losgarian fires reflecting off his coldly elegant sculpted face. Sent a shiver through me just looking at it. Exactly how I imagined him!

Then my efforts gained purpose :floating: He looks there a lot how I imagine him, definitely making impression I want Feanor to make, but not exactly his face, yet. That's my problem, I often have mutually exclusive ideas for the same faces. Or just a feeling, characteristic I want for that person but not a clear vision, so different faces do fit the same person. Sometimes I have to paint them first to really see what they look like. He is my Feanor, but not exactly his face. Great he fits your vision well :thumbsup:
