For my first post I wanted to share a passion of mine with you: cupcakes. Lately, I have found myself incorporating cupcakes into a lot of my projects, whether it be through painting, baking, animating, etc. The project that I specifically want to share with you today is actually my final animation project for the spring semester. It’s called The Life of a Cupcake, and it will take you through the ‘life of a cupcake,’ beginning with the beating of the eggs and the mixing of the flour, and ending with the final bite. : )
All of the pieces you see in this video were drawn and animated by me over a 10 hour period. Over 2000 pictures were taken and stitched together. All of the sound effects were recorded by me as well. Took a lot of hard work, but it was such a fun piece to make and came out exactly how I pictured it would.
Here’s a peek behind the scenes:
I hope you enjoy this short animation as much as I loved creating it. I hope to be sharing more of my projects, cupcake-related or otherwise, with you pretty often. I have a few big projects planned for this summer and absolutely can’t wait to share them with you!
Have a wonderful, cupcake-filled day!
