This month the theme was 'Time'.
This is pretty much all I've done all weekend. Apart from cook dinner, make a couple of sandwiches, sketch and read for a bit. I left it very, very late, as I refused to let myself do anything like this until my exams were over. They finished on Friday.
So obviously... I was super short of time!
I was worried that I wouldn't get it in on time
, but I stayed up last night to get the separate components drawn out (seriously, that clock. Oh my god.), and in my free lessons today I did the assembling and animating.
I even got so into it that I lost track of time
and had to rush to school in the afternoon so I wouldn't be late for Biology.
I really, really enjoyed making this. I had no major setbacks, which was pleasant, and everything just kind of gelled!
So the other day I was reading something on the internet about the concept of time
being man-made - I can pretty much sum it up in a quote I found: 'Time doesn't exist... clocks exist!'.
Anyway, that led me to thinking about the creation of time
, and then I thought it might be cool to make emotes building a clock! Although they're not really doing much building...
Tch. Poor employees right there.
Maybe the green unhappy-looking guy is the boss, and he's not impressed with the work ethic he's seeing.
I used a reference picture of the mechanisms inside a watch, though I had to simplify it a little. And since I couldn't find a video, the way the cogs work is completely made up.
So, any clock experts out there - I know it doesn't really work like this!
I'd reeeeeeally appreciate feedback on this. I'm actually very
proud of it, but as always am open to constructive criticism. Maybe you could even drop me a critique? I'd love to hear what you think!!
Good luck to everyone else in the contest, there are some fantastic entries this month. ;u;

The wheels move exactly every second, because I'm finicky like that. :'D Edit: Gosh, thank you so much for the Daily Deviation!!!!
