Week 8

So, week 8 was the first of a two week assignment. The Vanilla Walk! At first, I thought it was easy to do a vanilla walk, but I noticed that it's really hard to find just the right balance in everything. If you put something a little too much or too less, it looks like a character walk. Also, it's kinda subjective what's vanilla and what's personality in walks because everybody walks differently... The thing is, in real life, there are no "vanilla" walks... Also, we had to do a pose again this week. The Physical Strength pose! Here it is:

And here is the blocking for the walk:

It's pretty bad, but it's just a blocking, it will look better in the next post! =)

Week 6

Wow! Week 6 was really a rush! I'm posting from Brazil now! Woo!!! I was traveling in the middle of the week, and I took 3 flights! (and missed one of them cause I was late...) I even tried to animate during the flight, but the result was far from great... hehehe In the end, I went back to the basics and finished the assignment in the last minute... So, of course, I wasn't very happy with the result. I also didn't have time to do the revisions I wanted, so I promise they'll be here in the future posts. For now, this is it:

Week 5

So, my assignment for week 5 was another bouncing ball. But this time in an obstacle course, which makes it a lot more fun! And a lot more challenging also...

This week we also had to do another pose. This time communicating DEVASTATION. So here it is:

First, some sketches to experiment with the idea:

And the pose:
There are some small issues with this pose, but you'll see them addressed in my next post with the revision. Overall, I kinda like it!

Now the obstacle course animation! Here's the planning:
The biggest problem was the frame limit. We only have 120 frames for this assignment, and my animation was 150 frames long! So I had to cut out the final settle... sigh.

Here is the final assignment:
And that's it, week 5! See ya next week! Cheers!
