Mouth Sketches by DanLeMan14 Mouth Sketches by DanLeMan14
Here's some random mouth sketches I made a while back. Now you might be wondering...why did I post a couple sketches of mouths? Well, call me crazy, but whenever I listen to a really awesome song, I imagine my favorite Tuff agents playing the songs...yes I know it's weird LOL XD. But it got me thinking...why don't I try a crack at animation and make my own music video featuring my favorite tuff characters playing as the band of the song? :D

Now, animation is a VERY long and difficult thing to do(depending on what the animation is exactly), but I've had experience with Adobe Flash before so I think it would work well :). Of course before I actually make a music video or two, I'm going to need some practice first, whether it be a simple walking animation or a guy drinking coffee.

I'm not sure when I'll officially start working on this animation project since I've got many pics I want to make and school, but I'll hopefully start within a month or two from now. I just wanted to give you all a little preview of what I'm planning to do. ;)

Usually the line up is:

Chris- Vocals/Lead Guitar
Dan- Bass
Dudley- Drums
Kitty- Vocals/Lead Guitar
Christie- Rhythm Guitar

Kitty just seems to have a secret rock n' roll side. XD So what songs do you think fit them more.

Yeah, that is true. So Dan's in a band or something, right? They don't have a vocalist?

Hmm. Sweet. :3 Well, in my version, Dan would also be a vocalist, just depending on the vocal range or type of song. Hmm...we can combine our talents like the Wonder Twins!....Except we're useful!

BTW: What song are you gonna choose for the animation? Or have you not decided on that, or are you just gonna have us wait until you've finished it to find out?

Great reference page! I doodle little things like eyes and mouths on my notes. It's really good practice. I've tried my hand at animating...I can't make anything more complicated than a blinking eye animation. If you can make a full music video, my hat is off to you! I think it'd be really cool and I'd love to see it!

Oh man I imagine the same thing! Been doing it since I was five. I would have to spend long hours in a car cause we moved every four years so I would imagine characters singing to the music outside the window. I think it's cause of toontown (in who framed roger rabbit)

Doesn't sound crazy to me, I've been imagining the same thing ever since the show premiered. That sounds like a pretty awesome project you've got planned there Dan, now I've two big projects that I'm looking forward to seeing finished. Good luck with it.

Tip: NEVER throw away sketches! Sketches always give a good back up reference when you're animating. I'm trying as well to animate my own cartoons too ;)
Dan+animation+music video = pure gold! Go for it, man! It might take a while, but it's gonna be worth it. Kudos and best of luck!

And yer planning an animation huh? Well that is INDEED a long process. But if successful I know it'll be VERY awesome. =-D
Actually I had an idea from a song I heard I figure would be good for 'Lady Malmsteen': if I was ever crazy or suicidal to even think of beginning a project revolving around her: Petsylvania and the TUFF agents.

Yeah, all I gotta say is PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE lol XD. I don't wanna rush through this when I start working on it, so I'm just starting with simple talk and moving animations first...

I would love to see more of Malmsteen! :la:

Compared to walking or movement animations I imagine with much practice those facial animations get easier to animate.
If I could actually do an animation I had planned for Malmsteen: I for one would have climbed Mt Everest with a jump rope. XD thank you though. ^__^
