How to Learn 3D Animation


 

Throughout history different devices had been in use to create the illusion of motion or animation. Zoetrope a wheel like device with picture on it was invented in China in 180 A.D. Phenakistoscope, Flip books and then cameras began to show moving pictures. With invention of computer, computers begin to be used for animation.

Hummingbird (1967) a ten minute film was considered as the first computer generated animation film. From then on computers begin to be used for creating 2d and 3d animation. Toy Story (1995) was first feature length 3d animation movie. Then rest is the history with block buster movies such as Avatar, Shrek, Up etc grossing heavily at box offices. 3d Computer Generated Imagery or CGI is now being heavily used in not only Hollywood but throughout the world.

I began my journey of learning animation and modeling. For your convenience I have enumerated my journey.

1. I got a trial version of the 3d animation software and began tinkering. In the beginning I did not know even a bit about this software. I and my brother keep fiddling with buttons in the interface. Through this trial and error we would discover new things each day.

2. Then when we got some basic knowledge of the software and we began making things given in the help menu. Slowly and gradually our skills were getting polished.

3. Almost 1 to 2 years passed in this tinkering. My brother realized he could not go further so he gave up but I kept trying, learning one thing after another. I downloaded learning material and tutorials from the internet.

4. After when I got enough experience I begin to spread the word about animation (at that time no one knew about 3d animation). I showed them my work and they were impressed.

5. People begin to contact me for making modeling and animation. At the same time I began teaching animation. This journey took me almost 9 years.

The journey had not been easy. I face several problems. When my siblings and friends enjoyed watching TV, movies and hanging out, I would sit next to the computer watching video tutorials. Art and all its form require passion and dedication. Without passion you can learn to draw lines and circles but you cannot breathe life into your artwork. Creativity cannot be achieved pain. This journey has been a labor of love for me.

Now I have got decent portfolio. I hope to break into the professional industry in the professional way soon, God willing. That is my story of learning animation at my own. As someone said, God helps those who help themselves. If you have passion, then decide wholeheartedly once to learn this unique art of storytelling. Lucrative business is waiting for you with endless opportunities; the only condition is that you must have Passion.

Free Download Naruto: Animated Images, Gifs, Pictures & Animations


 

Anyone familiar with the anime/manga series Naruto Shippuden would definitely know of the main characters' undaunted heroism in the quest to end the pain in the lives of those around him and bring peace to not just the hidden leaf village but all surrounding hidden villages and their territories. Uzumaki Naruto's "will of fire" not just leads him to aspire to become the next Hokage of his village, but also inspires all those around him to train harder to become better at protecting the people they love.

Naruto Shippuden starting from the first episode; gave off that impression that it was nothing more than a 'watch cause there's nothing better to watch anime'. At the beginning a lot of interesting facts were down played in the anime; like the fact that; Naruto is the child of legend, that the demon fox isn't exactly a bad guy and also the awesome fight scenes present throughout the anime. In turn, the animes' creators opted for a slower yet steady ascent into the story, starting from Naruto Uzumaki"s childhood through to his eventual rise from village truant to worldwide hero". Even with so many antics in between the story's main character and other things that seems to have no direct correlation to the story; the story's progression is understandable (from the mundane to the downright addictive). As you continue to watch Naruto Shippuden or read the manga series, Naruto's 'Will of Fire' becomes an almost constant presence, even being mentioned at several points in the anime series, especially in parts were he's trying to convince an enemy as to his seriousness in becoming Hokage and saving everyone from their pain, including the enemy. Naruto Uzamaki's tenacity and dogged ability to persist in any course of action urges his will of fire to burn even brighter.








Naruto's constant test of his "Will of Fire" comes from his relationship with rival and friend Sasuke Uchiha. Naruto and Sasuke's constant battle's over the course of the anime series just shows how much Naruto holds Sasuke in high regard, referring to him as the first person who ever acknowledged him and talking to him as more of a brother than a friend. Sasuke defection from the Hidden Leaf Village only leads Naruto (who made a promise to Sakura, the only female in their team and who is secretly in love with Sasuke Uchiha) to intensify his training so that one day he would be able to battle and bring Sasuke back to the Hidden Leaf Village. Naruto's "Will of Fire" as lead him down different paths and has made him meet and make both friends and foes alike. Naruto affable character has him eventually winning the love of his people and becoming the hero of his village. His die-hard spirit, refused him from abandoning his friend despite his attitude and this leaves the most profound expressions on everyone who comes in contact with him, eventually winning over the trust of both humans and beasts alike (Tailed Beasts).
