Term 3 - Assignment 1 - 2nd Pass

Here's my second pass at animation for my piece. We moved into linear keys, which is something I've never done - it feels a bit "robotic". But it was really helpful - it showed me that my timing was REALLY slow - so I had a decent amount of time to add some more depth to the character - give the magician another magical swish with his wand. Overall, I like it a lot more - but I still have posing and timing issues to work on.

Forward march!!!! :)

New Mentor - Mike Belzer

Woooo hoooo! Term 3 is in full effect - I originally had Jay Jackson for my mentor, who was amazing, but I had conflicts with work and class - so I swapped into Mike Belzer's class (Thanks Ben!).

I'm just starting week 3 - so here is what I have so far. The first assignment is a pantomime project - basically with a change in emotion.

My idea: magician who pulls a rabbit out of the hat - only to be surprised by what happens.

It's cute, and short, and I'm really excited to be working on it. :)

Here are my week 1 and 2 drawings / reference / blocking. The blocking needs a lot of work (which I've already spent a few hours changing after crit - so I'll post up the new pass soon. :)

Term 2 - Better Late than Never

Well - here's my reel for term 2 - we worked on 3 pieces total for the term. I had some family emergencies happening during the last project - so I couldn't devote a lot of time to it, bummer, but a-ok - I'll just work my butt off next term. :) Hope you enjoy.
