Dialog shot Complete!!

This week is fantastic because I have final finished my dialog shot. I've had a lot of fun with this shot from planning, to blocking to finally reaching the finish line. I've learned so much from doing this one shot. But now its a new week and we are starting to plan for the next animation, which is a 2 character dialog shot. I've narrowed it down to 3 possible choices, 2 being more on the serious side and one being super funny where if I pick it I get to do the robot. In the past couple of weeks, since my last blog, I've had to do more facial poses with Bishop and polishing off my shot. Here is my final shot...

here is one of the face pose sets that I did


and here are the 3 sketches that I did for the weekly themes.

Theme: the king
Turtle King Sketches

Theme: Animation Ninja
2d Vs 3d Ninja

Theme: Little Red (I made her into a panda!!)

Have a great week!!

Class 4!!

Hello everyone. Class 4 has just begun and we wasted no time jumping into it and starting on the facial part of our animations. This week is all about getting into it and blocking out the main shapes of the mouth. This term my mentor is Nicole Herr from Sony Imageworks. It is going to be a fun term with a lot of work ahead. After shooting some facial reference, i got right into it and here is my shot from last term with its first pass at facial animation.

I also started a thread in the forums at AM for weekly themed drawings and week one theme was alien pets. Here is my quick sketch of my alien pet that totally looks like he belongs in the lilo and stitch universe.
