Little Head Rotation Animation

Since its over the holiday break, I've been doing little things here and there. I worked on a little animation earlier in the week. It involves a head looking around, then up and down. The rough is done and so is some of the clean up. 

This is the rough animation of the head rotation, its only two seconds long. But it was mostly just a test. 
This is the beginning of the clean up for it so far. It's not completely done, the head needs a little work on the beginning and I still have to add the characters expression. This week I'm planning on working on a little morph cycle and hopefully the rough will be up before Saturday. 

In the mean time I'am working on my sketch book still and continuing some of the stuff from the improvement sketch book. I plan on putting these up sometime in the week two weeks as well. Until then!

Animation 1 Final

So I have been working on this animation for my final. In one of my classes and we had been working on this for a little over a month. I just finished it yesterday, and there are still some things. That I feel like I could add, but it is done and fully colored. Here is the progress of the final.








These show the progress from the animatic to rough, clean up and the final colored piece. I enjoyed working on this project a lot I can't wait to start Animation Two next semester. 


Improvement Sketchbook Final Post

This class has been an amazing experience this semester. I have learned so much and I wish that the class was some what longer. Though this project was kinda hard, I feel like I can take a lot from this one. The second project is something that I will never forget. Working on such a large team of people was hard, but I was able to take some leadership skills from it.

This last project was more involved towards seeing how much improvement. I could get in just a month, I  believe that there has a good amount. The drawings were finished on Monday, and I spent the last day or so putting the book together. Which proved to be a bit harder than I first thought. The sketches came out to be 62 pages in the end and the book.

Had to be split into two separate little books, I have some pictures of them below.


There were some cover pages made for the books as well. This is the first Sketchbook that shows, work from the beginning. The drawings are put in order by date to show progress. This book shows from November 13th to November 28th.


This is an open page from the book, to show what the inside looks like. 



This is the second sketchbook, it shows the progress from November 29th to December 10th. 


Just like the first the second picture below shows. An example of what the pages inside look like. 


Everything that has been shown, in the previous post from before. Are all in these two books here from the post from before.  Post 3 Post 2 Post 1 Project Idea

This class has been wonderful and I'm going to take everything I have learned. With me from on now, I plan on continuing working on this sketchbook over the holidays. Once I make a new schedule of course. Till next time!

Improvement Sketch book Post 3

Hello! This is the third week of the Improvement sketch book! I spent this week mostly working on anatomy.  Bones, muscles, construction and such I went from legs to arms and the skeleton as well. The last week has been planned out. It will be focused on bringing everything that I have worked on up to this point together.


Here is the improved final schedule. I'm planning on going back to some things that I worked on in the beginning of this project. I'm going to do these again, but this time I plan on incorporating everything. That I have done up to this point gestures, shapes, blind contours. The muscles and bones all these will be incorporated into final pieces. 

There met be more pages because of this or less but in the end. It will result in them all being put together in a book. That will be put in order by each subject and body part. From the earliest ones to the most recent, depending on how long this book takes and time. The last thing on the 10th met not be done it will all depend on time. I would like to have this book made before Thursday. 

These muscle studies met be fully colored in the final version of the book. I know for sure they will be labeled. Now here is the result of this week. 

This is the Spinal & Rectus Abdomnius Muscles, the first is gesture while the second is made up mostly of shapes. 



These next two are Triceps and Biceps muscles study. 


The first is the triceps draw out in separate forms of the muscle. They are each labeled. 


The second is the biceps on the arms, these are drawn in shapes. 



A anatomy study of the neck involving the bones and muscles they are labeled for each separate part. 


Head anatomy study showing the skull. In casing the bones and muscles as well as the jaw and top of the skull. Those the close up of the jaw is not labeled. 


Some key parts of the human skeleton, I would like to go back and include them in more detail. Most likely this will be done sometime within the last week. 

Leg study of the bones and muscles. 


This first one includes parts of the hips and some muscles on the upper legs each part is labeled.  


This second page covers more of the knee and hip area one of the muscles on the ankle is labeled.

More Head/Portrait Construction studies done mostly in shapes and blind contours. These are helped quite a bit the head isn't that hard to draw anymore. 


Head construction in shapes. 


Head construction in blind contours. 

This last one is on body construction in shapes, something I'm still working on. I will continue to do so even after this project is done. 


There are more pages but I wasn't able to get them up at this time. However they will be up later in the week I'm thinking on uploading a design for the cover of the book. Some thought has been put into the over all look but I would like to put some designs on here before next week. I'm hoping to have about another 10 pages done by next week with the book being finished before next Tuesday. Until then!
