Ringling Spring 01 Week 11

First is a picture of my birthday surprise. I have some of their blogs linked to the side. Be sure to check out their awesomeness! Thanks everyone! Then I have a still life of a loaf of bread. Painting neutral colors was really tough. And finally, are some gestures. 1-10 mins.

Ringling Spring 01 Week 10

Last week I had the most amazing spring break. To start it off, I saw Alice in wonderland,rode with 13 people in a truck,went to an arcade,ate chinese food,went to the beach a couple of times, sketch crawled downtown with friends, volunteered at habitat for humanity,got to be on television,and enjoyed the hot tub at someone's apartment. To end the week, Stevie took a group of us out to eat Korean food! I definitely had fun in Florida. This past week has been pretty busy and yesterday was my birthday! Too bad I only got 2 hours of sleep and had classes from 8 am to 6 pm.

I have my TA character design, and an Alice in Wonderland themed digital gray-scale painting. I might add color to the Alice in wonderland painting later in the future.

So here is Thibodeaux (ti-buh-doe) the lizard. He is based off of the goofy archtype and he is from a Cajun Louisianian background. He is friendly, usually cheerful, but a bit slow sometimes when it comes to thinking.I must say, designing my lizard character was really challenging for me. Not only did it have to be simple, it had to be designed to where it could have good poses,silhouettes,look like a lizard, simple and be animatable so i could draw it 200 times. Special thanks to my traditional animation teacher, Gordon, Adam and Stevie for giving me a lot of character designing tips.

RCAD Spring01 week 8

Here are some gestures 1-7 min. Also my head turn animation assignment for TA1. I can't believe it,only 1 week left till spring break! Animation has been quite challenging but enjoyable at the same time. To a regular person working for 20 hours to produce a 3 second clip sounds insane, but to an animator it is fun.
