A friend in animation Daryl (check his blog out www.morningstaranimation.wordpress.com) was talked a while back about when I was designing my logo for my company “PHASEgaming”, we both mentioned that an animation for my logo which is a electric dragon breathing electricity in the shape of PHASEgaming would be an awesome animation before a game. for example EA have this:
So taking my logo design in mind and the idea of a pre game animation Daryl took some of his own personal time to create me an animation just for this purpose and also to add to his portfolio.
This is the animation, I personally think its awesome and couldn’t keep back the excitement as this is a childhood dream of mine to run a games company (or overthrow EA either way). Whereas obviously Daryl being the biggest critic of himself was critiquing his work regardless of my appraisal. For some reason we noticed the background wouldn’t render in the animation which was a starry night with clouds, it did make the dragon look more realistic as in flying but im sure this is an issue that can be easily resolved. Nevertheless with some of my own personal tweaks to colour scheme possibly and if Daryl wanted to continue to develop it I would be more than happy to help him as it was great work for his portfolio. Give it a few years and it will be a fully 3D rendered Skyrim looking Dragon pulsing out lightning in wrath to electrify a stone carving in the shape of PHASEgaming with smoke rising from the letters with the occasional spark. That would be epic but also need a big bank account and a team of people im sure.
I will be posting my developments of my logo as i have done more than one design and now photoshopped it just haven’t got round to blogging it yet due to other work.
