Class 1: Week 8

WOW!!! IT'S WEEK 8 ALREADY?!?! This weeks lecture was an introduction to walks. Walks are one of the hardest things to do right in animation and they bring together all the principles we've been learning so far. Also, we were asked to do a pose with Stu that conveyed Strength. Here's what I came up with. The walk is in Stepped mode this week and next week we will smooth out and finish the animation. Thanks to all who are reading! More to come next week as always!! PEACE OUT

Class 1: Week 7

This weeks lecture was on arcs and path of action. This is a very important concept that is hard to nail but gives your animation fluidity and an orgranic feeling. The assignment was a choice of two: Animate One-Leg doing a single jump OR Animate Tailor, the ball with a tail, doing at least 3 jumps. I chose to do the Tailor animation and wanted to come up with a bit of story and character. I will post planning drawings in the next couple days. Here is what I have for the animation. The frame limit was 120 frames. Also, I've switched over to Quicktime for better quality and playback so let me know if you have any problems viewing the videos. If you have Quicktime istalled, you shouldn't. Thanks! PEACE OUT!!

*UPDATE: I also added the planning drawings I did for this week.

Class 1: Week 6

Hey Everyone,
OVERLAPPING ACTION!! This weeks assignment was a challenging one! The assignment was to animate a platform and the pedulum that hangs from it showing overlapping action. I did a few revisions and polished and this is what I came up with for the week. More excitement coming next week! Stay tuned...
