Scale based Layout Assignment!

Playing with scale for a layout assignment. I'm not very comfortable with layout, but this wasn't so bad!

Head Rotation & Lip Sync


For animation we got to choose any character and do a head turn, expression change and lip sync.

I wanted a bit of a challenge, so I chose Brother Aidan from Secret of Kells. I had to break a lot of the stylistic animation, as the prof wanted to see a lot of three-dimensionality and squash and stretch.

I had a lot of fun with the expression and lip sync, but the rotation was extremely tedious.

I hope I did him justice!!

Digitools Flash animation

So for digital tools, we're learning flash. I've used it before, but never with frame by frame animation. We had to create a scene showing anticipation, action and reaction, so here's mine!

There are a lot of flaws, but with a short timeline and more of a focus in understanding the software, I'm pretty happy with this c:

(final animation in gif form, please excuse the bad quality of the gif!)

Semester 1 Demo Reel

Instead of going to bed to get sleep for my first of many 8 am classes, I thought I'd get to uploading this!

So after my first Semester of Animation at Sheridan College, we had to put together a Demo Reel. So here's some of my highlights of the semester!

Unfortunately there isn't anything really cool there yet, as we've been learning the basics, but I've learned a lot!

Ball & Tail

So for our final assignment in Animation, we had to animate two balls interacting with each other. These balls, had to have tails to show that we understand S&C curves.

I was frustrated in the beginning because we had to do a lot more than the year before us, (an additional ball character) but in the end, it turned out to be fairly fun. Despite the looming deadlines for my other classes, I managed to finish this with time to spare and I'm extremely happy with the result!

(The final version that I handed in had the fat one sleeping for a little longer so that their entrances were not at the same time, but I forgot that file on the server- whoops)

Layout Pan

A Horizontal Pan for Layout class.

I honestly don't know if this is the proper resolution that he wants, but w/e. He was never clear so this is what he gets.

I had a lot of fun with this and I want to fool around with pans a bit more when i get time c:
