Break Time Again

Semester one has wrapped up until January, so here is the last bit of work from the term. Of course my action analysis assignment that has been in development since September is now completed. I'm quite happy with the result, despite the nitpicks I have. But overall, the amounts of work I put into it has given me a pretty nice (and pretty lengthy) portfolio piece. I guess a lot of diligence and care to produce a great animation is what the medium is all about.

In case you were wondering it's animated and cleaned up traditionally with the paint and two-tone shadows created in Flipbook Pro, with the ground shadows produced in Adobe After Effects.

Here's the animation cut into the final leica reel. Enjoy!

And just for giggles, here's a drawing my characters in marker and pen: I also have a performance animation produced Maya (using a Sheridan model and rig). the line is from Back to the Future part II. This project was quite fun, I do so enjoy animating character performance.

This next bit are are some new 3rd year film designs I did for the rough design pack. We plan to refine some of these over the break and in January, as well as may other things.

And finally here's an on location drawing that I sketched at my local Timmies.

That's all from this semester, but i have several portfolio projects lined up for the break in preparation for my summer co-op placement. I'll post each project upon its completion.

Happy Holidays.

Last bit of development

So one week remains until all is said and done for this semester. So since I'm on the home stretch for my action analysis assignment I figured I'd post the last bit of development work before the final coloured composite.

Here I have my rough animation:

The cleaned up sequence:

And my scene 1 and scene 3 composite layouts:
And finally all of the above compsite into the current leica reel. The final full colour will be done next week. Enjoy.

Stop Motion... Finally!

Ah, I finally got my stop motion videos working. So now I can finally post some of the stop motion exercises I have been doing over the semester.

They are posed from most recent to oldest.

Finally the last bit of the pre-end-of-semester bulk: rough animation and newest lieca reel for my action analysis (without dialogue so far), some concept art pages I did for our group film, and storyboards I did for the first pass at the story lieca (this sequence will be cut out as we have completely changed our narrative, so these are alright to post publicly).
