Pogo gets stuck

needlepoint animation

Jumping into a Wall (Part 2)

It’s nothing it not primitive.  But I learned some useful things about animating a needle going through a canvas.

If you look at it carefully, you will see the Pogo can seem to either be facing a wall canvas, which is tilted such as to appear skewed or slanted toward him.  When he goes next it, it looks like the canvas is tilting away, and that he pierces it  from above.  I guess it’s an animation illusion I did not realize would happen.

Also, when he shakes back and forth, the canvas wall seems turns into a pentagon, and looks unaligned.  I doubled check to make sure, and the right side of the image (when I looked at the frame) is cropped perfectly straight, although it looks “bent.”

I”ll probably end up creating a page where to show off any new, more sophisticated animations that may come down the pike — maybe I will stick these in an entirely new section under my Features menu.

Meanwhile.. could someone help poor Pogo out?
