Pink Panther walk cycle. I like his body movement and even his head rotation, but they don’t work together that well.
Original Character walk cycle. Not 100% done but I ran out of time, but I like the movement and if I ever find time I will go in and clean it up and finish the detailing. I found walk cycles much easier than the S&C curves animations.
Next painting assignment. We had to design our own ‘ficto-planet’ and do a day and night scene for it. I wish I had a little more time …but I slacked. BUT I am quite happy with how the night scene turned out. (gouache, approx 9.5×6″ each)
Part of our next painting assignment we have to design our own ‘ficto-planet’ and make a day & night scene for them. I’m going to use the egg like one (the cradle of life) but slightly tweak it for compositional reasons.
Decided I need to post more often so I may start to post more sketches/rough work. So these were from layout 1st semester. We were learning how to draw gables. I should finish that bottom one at some point.
Assignment for layout class. We had to design a BG repeat pan with isometric perspective (hence why the walkway looks weird). Colour coded to show the separation of layers.
I like how the alien creature dude in the foreground turned out.
Final animation assignment for the semester. Kind of a combination of what we’ve learned including squash and stretch and S & C curves. There are a few things that are really bugging me, but I kind of ran out of time and it already was up to 203 drawings when the average was about 80.
(I contemplated adding a few drawing to smooth certain parts, but it just takes soooooo long to pencil test 200+ drawings haha)
So this was our last portfolio due for the semester. We had to come up with a creative way to display our bone drawings so I decided to make tarot cards full of puns ;P. (The top middle image is the card backs). He seemed to like them because I got 95% on this project and to get an A+ in life drawing from sheridan……is a big deal, it made my christmas! haha
