Animation Inspiration: Motion Trace but Do your own thing!

Hey guys: Zazi here…

Motion Trace to Create Animations …
Do Your Own Thing … add your own moves!

Sometimes as I sit and motion trace in MMD, I find that I am bored of just matching poses and want to go in an entirely new direction with my video. This is exactly what happened to me while animating “Virtual Insanity” by Jamioquai.

I was charging along and all of a sudden I just said… “Man I don’t like this.” … So I sat down at my desk and thought for a minute; “Why?” … I decided that the motions didn’t feel modern enough… so I decided to pull inspiration from a few modern artists like Kesha, Miley Cirrus, Maroon 5 and many more… and added a stylistic touch from all of them into this one video.

The point of all this is that sometimes, just following the crowd is like being in a prison of your own mind. Set yourselves free and animate what you want… how you want. After all, the things you make today could span generations!
