Continuing to practice expressions with Astro. May have to shelf the tests I was talking about, because I have some news.
Meet Quin. I have always wanted an appealing female rig to animate, and with a few modifications(Like the last two rigs) I now have one. Here are some face and body poses I did to get the feeling of the rig and its limitations. Can’t go as crazy as Astro, but can get a lot more exaggeration in the face than Cap. I should have More tests up soon. Expect to see a Cap test and an Astro test very soon, and hopefully a Quin test before the end of the week.
Quick test anim using a clip from Jesus 2000 (vimeo.com/6547492). Studying exaggerated 2D animation to learn more about how they did what they did. This is NOT an original animation from me this is an anim I created using reference from an animated short for learning purposes.
48 frame quick test anim using a clip from Emperors New Grove. Studying the animation from Disney films to learn more about how they did what they did. This is NOT an original animation from me, this is an anim I created using reference from an animated film for learning purposes.
30 frame anim using a clip from Emperors New Grove. Studying the animation from Disney films to learn more about how they did what they did. This is not an original animation from me, this is an anim I created using reference from an animated film for learning purposes.
Rough test anim done in an hour and a half of a character hitting the floor to do push ups. Working on learning cartoony anim.
Just finished work on Blue Sky’s latest feature, Epic. Getting to work at Blue Sky was an amazing opportunity. I had a great time working with their fantastic team. I really hope to see them all again soon. I have grown a lot in the little time I was there, and hope to be able to make some more kick ass work to show you guys. Over the next few weeks I am going to be studying hard pushing myself and my understanding of animation further. I will be posting up quick small tests, nothing impressive, just small learning exercises. I hope to have some news soon on what I am up to next, and when I do I will let you know.1 note
