Woo Class 5!!!

AM will be over soon (ok 6 months but it really flies by)
Here is the shot I worked on from the last half of class 4 and adding facial animation to in class 5.

I'll be done with this shot in 2 weeks so this isn't the final version...

First time doing facial animation so it's not there yet.

Well, over n out.... for a few months a least till I remember to post again.....

Sackman on a skateboard :p

Class 4 is really fun. Starting a dialogue shot next week.

There's two ideas from this...

Here's the shot of my flour sack guy I worked on this month...

fzero is his T pose hence the flicker and pillowiness of that first frame...
Looks a bit better on youtube.

Oh yeah, and this came out over the past few weeks. I get it in class 5! Watch the animation at the end.... so excited :D

Into acting I go...

Finished up Advance Body Mechanics. Here's the past 3 projects (along with all the past ones)
My animation still isn't perfect yet but I can see what's wrong with it a lot better now.

Class 4 should be fun. My first project I'm using a Flour Sack character... on a skateboard :)
Here's some reference I shot (thankfully the last shot isn't me...)

Should be fun :)

Class 3 here I come!

So I'm kind of a lousy blogger... been busy doing animation!
In Class 2 we worked on 3 shots... Here's the reel of everything so far...

I'm still not the best at polishing but I'm getting there :)

Class 3 will be awesome. We do 3 shots but we can connect them with a theme... and start some acting.
Well, post back in a whiles...
Oh, by the way.... My new mentor is Mike Gasaway. He worked on Jimmy Neutron and some other Nickelodeon shows... I use to watch Jimmy Neutron when I was little :p so that will be cool... well, tootles.

I'm not dead...yet

In Class II we're given 4 weeks on projects. Week One we shoot reference, week 2 block it, week 3 more blocking, and then they're due on week 4. This being week four I can actually show you something.

Here it is:
Kinda boring, yes? I was going for that :) I was just going for the weight.

Next four weeks will be interesting. My next project is a bit more exciting.
I'm not going to tell you what it is but here's my reference for it.

That's me running. My roommate's lying in the snow, poor chap.

We got some new models this week. A Stu without arms and a Ballie with arms.... fun fun.
Well, 'till next time nonexistent fan base.

Back from a long winters nap...

Winter break was fun. Didn't really do much but it was nice. For xmas I got some cool sculpting and rigging books (along with some random stuff like a daily calender of The Onion:] )

Class 2 is here. It will be done before I know it. My mentor this time is Elliott Roberts (no relation... that I know of) My goals are to animate with better... well, body mechanics. Also I want to get better at drawing people and capturing poses. Well, here... we... go!
