ISLAND MAN FAIL!

One more thing to post, we did a story sequence for... um, story class. :P This was not made up by me, we were all given the same story, and we each go about it our own way. I dunno how well done mine is, but I at least put a lot of though into the narrative... like Maury wants us to!










EPIC FAIL!!!

... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Character Animations... totally worth the hours of Madness!

Midterm Projects are being completed, and it couldn't be any more relieving! Especially that the projects being due are the kind of projects we come to animation to do!

Here are the last couple things to be done before the break, the first being a character rotation, expression, and lip sync to the word "Meow." :P I did Hernán Cortés, a minor, but FUCKING AWESOME character from Road to El Dorado by Dreamworks (great movie, see it if you haven't).

*For you history buffs out there, in the movie and real life, Cortés was the leader of the Spanish army in the conquest of the Aztec Empire during the 1500s, which would lead to the eventual establishment of Mexico... 'cause I like facts! :P

Fun Stuff!

Also, here is the final coloured Pink Panther Pan Walk, as promised before.

Now we know how to draw a great character, have them act, and colour them into scenes... WHOOOOOOOOOOOT!!! :D

This is good for later, but for now: reading week = much needed sleep.

G'night all!... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The hat has been passed.

So the second of several finals is finished. Character sequence! This was fun, but very tedious... training for the business we're in I guess! :P

Not much else to say, obviously a nod to the Indiana Jones series... have ya seen it? If not... well, get on that shit son!





Almost midterm!... That was fast! :S

In a painting room not so far away...

So a lot of work is being assigned right now, but it somehow doesn't feel like much since it's all due week 7 (the week before the break). Only one project is done so far, and another will be done next week, the rest will be on mid-term week... ugh!

So for now, I don't have much to put up. Here is a painting of a sci-fi spacescape, which was actully a really fun project!



It had to have a transition from day and night, and look like it was from a far off planet.

I'll admit Star Wars was partially inspiration for this, but also I took elements from the first scene in Titan A.E. where the earth was destroyed (awesome scene!).

Regardless, I think I'm becoming a better painter! Whooohooo! :D

That's all for now, more to come soon!
