Delia G.’s Dancing Pickles!
Even the pickles are partying this month! Delia G., faithful Accelerate student, artist, and fashion designer extraordinaire, is venturing into the realm of animation in her usual and uniquely fabulous style.
Instructor Anna introduced Delia to Flip Anim, an easy digital introduction to traditional flipbook animation. Delia’s been learning how to duplicate frames, use “onion skin”, and strategically erase and reform her drawing from all perspectives, in order to create the illusion of movement. Delia’s so devoted to bringing her works to life, she’s gone the extra mile and been studying videos of her subjects in action – and as you can see, it’s paid off! Check out her beating heart, spinning cookie, swimming baby sea turtle (a work in progress, and yet so adorable!), and last but not least, her dancing pickle!
The latter has a story behind it! Ever since Delia found this animated emoticon, it’s held a special place in her heart – and funny bone, of course! She’ll greet her instructor with a string of dancing pickles at the beginning of every virtual class, and has since declared herself their “queen”! Naturally, they were the first thing on her mind when she began her foray into animation. She was thrilled when she could finally make her own!
Amazing work, Delia! You’ve really brought your art to life. Congratulations – and never stop dancing!
