Back at Home for the Christmas holidays!

For our 3d final, we had to incorporate all the elements and principles of design into a floating intention. My partner Anguel and I collaborated with another team to perform a skit where we invade Troy. We created a Horse Boat named Massive Black. Massive Black fared well on land, but, in the ocean... not really. All in all, we had a blast and made memories and friendships. We learned much about teamwork,communication, time management power tools,and balancing objects. We spent 8 hours editing the video...so enjoy!

Every drawing teacher had their own form of a Final Exam. My Drawing teacher had us do a visual Narrative. We had to incorporate what we learned in class (ex: composition, contour, perspective, negative space, value).I got some assistance and tips on how to create interesting characters and what programs to use to create an animatic from many awesome upperclassman CA's. In the end, I made an A+

During the holidays, I hope to learn more about creating characters and reading the animators survival kit. I cant wait for Traditional animation next semester!
