To while the time in between jobs for school and preparations for other academiac endeavors, I usually surf the freeware and free open source software sites to check if I can download some interesting tools. Tonight, I downloaded Pivot StickFigure Animator and installed the freeware in my laptop. I had a hilarious time trying out the animator. There’s just something funny about making a stick figure move. So I explored on making it do exercise movements. I also made it jump, do an awkward jete, twirl, and other mundane actions real people do. The good thing about a stick figure is that it definitely has no limitations when it comes to flexibility compared to real people. So I made my stick figure do this:

click on figure to see it move

I also made it do walking motions without traveling. (LOL)

Something to prepare for my other projects in mind. Including an stick figure animation story of how Johnnypanic fell into a canal by a flooded street somewhere near Victoria Mall in Bajada one stormy night. đŸ™‚

    I just went to the UI animation festival. There’s a bright future for animation everywhere. You should check the BSIT students of ADZU. They’re great.
