My First 3D Walk Cycle

Well on my way to becoming a 3D animator! (I hope.) Not the most tasteful background choices, but I just wanted to be silly. The image doesn’t belong to me. I found it via Google.

Astronaut and the Orb of Light

Recently did some work on my astronaut. Note, I will probably be making some major changes to my plot. These may or may not show up in the final product, but they are still very nice and I will try my best to keep them in.

I’m trying to be more conscious about how I put my work up, hence the crazy name stamping. Sorry, I also think it’s kind of  funny.

Sad Bean

My 2D animation class is making short Flash animations based on the Bean I doodled last week.

Last year, I did an animation loop of a rabbit riding a carrot-shaped spaceship. Afterward, some of my classmates were handing in loops of rabbits or carrots, sometimes in space. At the end of the semester, our loops were compiled into a sequence titled, Carrot Schtick (I wasn’t present for that). I’m not sure if it was my doing but I was reminded of that by this project. Although, this time we voted on a character to focus on.

I would put up my own storyboard but I actually want to show off an animatic by my funny and talented friend, Frank Gidlewski:

Frank sneaked in some of his personality while still keeping it cute to match my drawing style. I appreciate it.

Also, last night I prepared a character sheet for a stressed out schoolteacher for Jon:

Ship interior

Originally, I wanted to do 3D backgrounds but I decided to use a method that would show off my design skills in the best way, so I’m making them in After Effects. I’d say it’s a third of the way there right now. Video Copilot is helping a lot.

For most of last semester, I worked with Ratatouille on loop. It keeps me in the zone to have the same movie playing over and over, but I’ve gotten to a point where I occasionally say or mouth the dialogue along with the movie since I’ve heard it so many times.

Update: Approximately 2 hours later…

Ugh, well it doesn’t look like I did much more but I definitely did because there are other versions of this BG for different scenes.

Phases of Jupiter, its Moon and the Sun

Currently trying to figure out exactly how I want this to look. I might not know until I put Captain HP on the moon.
