First Puppet Tool Use in After Effects

This is a workhorse way they "animate" motion comics. I still don't know how to do audio fx. Like how to manipulate my voice and make it sound like a girl. I should have used a Python falsetto when I was recording. The cyclops came out OK.

Definitely want a motion comic from you, Ellis! I think a web-comic with motion is very, very compelling in this interactive age. Lots of cool, impressive stuff can be done on the cheap and quick these days.

I know how to make you sound like a girl Ellis. Alternatively, you could have found a real girl to do the voice. Got any teenage grand-nieces? Even a ten-year-old girl would have been cool, kind of funny even.
By the way, does the cyclops say, "My one good eye!", like he's got a good eye and a bad eye?
Anyway, the motion is cool, but what I'm really looking at is the beautiful painting you did for this. More painting! More painting!

You could make me do some girlish squeaking Tom. If you could get me down. We should have an old man judo match. I insist on working on great olympic sized, super science crash pad mats before the contest.

Thanks. I lost my confidence in my painting ability after my Jack Kirby copy. I'm probably 3 months of failures away from getting any of that back.
Doubt if I have the gumption for the 3 months of failures.
Sticking to digital lameness.

Yeah the audio is "my good eye." I'm sick.

Old man judo or jiu-jitsu?

Judo. All about the takedowns. Then you could give me a refresher on juijitsu once we were down.

And, thankfully, I'm 1300 miles away from you.
