AM Class 2 Week 1 & 2

Late as usual posting this stuff. Sorry about that but it isn't a huge priority, getting the assignments done and learning to be an animator is the goal. Hope you enjoy this stuff.

Here is a pencil test I did to plan out my first assignment for Class 2. We are supposed to animate a kick, a 180 turn, or a side step. As usual I tried to bite off almost more than I can chew. kick flipkick pencil

Here is week 2 of assignment 1. My Ninja flip kick assignment, as I'm calling it, in the blocking stage.

I would be posting images for you people to look at but sometimes (like right now) blogger doesn't like me.

AM Class 1 wrap up

Class 1 is in the bag! It was an awesome three months. I my mentor was amazing, my fellow classmates were super helpful, assignments were challenging, and the lessions were eye opening. I have been animating (or trying to animate) since 2002 when I was first introduced to softimage. I heard about the 12 principles and all that stuff pretty early on. But my understanding these past three months has grown a HUGE amount. My demo reel from before I started this class is useless now (and that is a really really good thing in my opinion). Bobby was right when he said

Right now it feels like you are still moving things around and not giving life to the characters. You definitely need training. You understand the software and that is evident, but you need to go much deeper into yourself to be an animator.
Well I better shut up before I sound like too big of a dork. Here is my Class 1 reel for all of you to enjoy. I have a long way to go yet but I know I'm on the right track.

AM Week 11

Well class 1 is coming to an end. Here is my last assignment, my zombie walk in 3/4 perspective!

I still need to go back and revise this one.
