... and the World Spins Madly On

The blog is dying!

I have to admit that I've been quite lazy to post anything for the last month.., I can't say I have been busy. Just really lazy.
But right now, I'm inspired to share one of the greatest inspirations I have for studying animation.

Below is an Animation by Ryan Woodward entitled Thought of You... with the song The World Spins Madly On...

yep... and here are the lyrics to that song...

The World Spins Madly On
by the Weepies

Woke up and wished that I was dead
With an aching in my head
I lay motionless in bed
I thought of you and where you'd gone
and let the world spin madly on

Everything that I said I'd do
Like make the world brand new
And take the time for you
I just got lost and slept right through the dawn
And the world spins madly on

I let the day go by
I always say goodbye
I watch the stars from my window sill
The whole world is moving and I'm standing still

Woke up and wished that I was dead
With an aching in my head
I lay motionless in bed
The night is here and the day is gone
And the world spins madly on

I thought of you and where you'd gone
And the world spins madly on.

Okay the song sounds a bit emotional and sentimental, but I believe the animation was great, it beautifully interpreted the song.

Ryan Woodward is a really good figure artist and and animator. Watch how fluid the movements are and the concept behind the storyline. The art applies the combination of the following art styles and principles: Figure Drawing, Contemporary Dance, Animation, and of course Music...

for me the reason why I love Animation is because it is a combination of many fields of Art... reason why I want to learn how to animate...
