Lot 665, ladies and gentlemen. A papier mache musical box in the shape of a barrel organ. Attached, the figure of a monkey in persian robes, playing the cymbals. This item, discovered in the vaults of the theatre, still in working order.


This is a very simple animation I made some time ago. It was made for a screensaver, so it loops endlessly.
Click anywhere on it to stop the music, click again to resume.

Update: Screensaver version (Windows only) now available! =D

It's one of my favourite plays... and I'd give anything to have this music box.

Me too. I made this because I can't even buy the one they sell online and at the POTO venues.

Nice! I love the design! Details are insane!

I guess you used some 3D modeling software and animated it as 2D? How long did it took you to finish it?
Reply
:iconaemiliuslives:
aemiliuslives Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh :blush: No, not really. I actually used a stock photo of the musicbox souvenirs they sell at the theaters where Phantom is playing (I think it also can be bought online). I broke that photo down into pieces and animated it in flash :blush: :P

But since you mention it, I am making my own actual 3D model now, that I'm learning to 3D sculpt. I've been making my own models of the chandelier and the stage, so I will make some props too, including this one. Thank you for commenting and faving it :blush: :thumbsup:

BlastAttak Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012
Cool!

It reminded me of some sort of items you would find in older "point & click" or "survival horror" video games, so I assumed it's a 3D model. It just has that kind of feel to it, both thematically and the way it's animated. And thats why I love it!

I'm, also, trying to learn 3D modeling, it takes too much time, but I'll prevail and emerge victorious (someday)! :D

aemiliuslives Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I tried to make it more 3d-looking and filtered the original photo a bit, enhanced the light and the shadows, then I added the eyelids and some details here and there too, apart from the rest of the animation.

Cool :) Good luck with that :thumbsup:
I've done some 3d modeling for several years now, but I just started learning 3d sculpting, which allows me to make more organic shapes and characters, while I could only do architecture, vehicles and props with traditional modeling. So it's very exciting =D

This is amazing! The music and movements fit flawlessly! I cannot believe this is simple for you, it looks extremely difficult to me. But then again I am clueless in the ways of animation :XD:

I cannot wait for a downloadable version!!! :D Stupendous job!!
