Whoa! 3D animation and a Mr. Limpy goes for a stroll - Week 11

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 1 comments
Week 11, we are in the home stretch, with only this animation and a pose, we will have completed our work for class 1. Now, to cut down on confusion with my next post, we did still have another week of class, but you will see the fruits of week 12's labors soon enough.

The animation this week finishes off our personality walk and adds a new twist. For the first time this term we are animating "in 3D." In other words, rather than a side view like all other assignments, this time we show our character walking with the camera providing roughly a 3/4s view.

And a quick message: Kids. Eat your vegetables, floss your teeth, and DON"T PROCRASTINATE.

This is my revised version of the final walk (you wouldn't want to see the walk I turned in. Did I mention waiting until the last minute?)

So here is Mr. Limpy

And this week's pose - balance.

Here is my pose entitled "Don't look down"

Long time, no walk - Week 10

Ok. I've been remiss in posting updates. I'm sorry for that. These last several weeks were incredibly busy. So without further delay, here is my work for Week 10.

First we have our animation assignment. Simply put, in contrast the the vanilla walk cycles from the last two weeks, we were tasked to come up with a walk that showed personality. For me, this meant agonizing over what to do most of the week. Kids don't try that at home - just commit and start working on something. Also, shoot video reference of yourself or someone so you can figure out the walk. These are HARD!

For week 10 we have the blocking for the walk, which to remind everyone, means that we are only hitting key poses in the animation and basic timing.

Mr. Limpy

And for this week's pose we needed to show exhaustion. Turns out I am pretty familiar with that pose in real life.
