Last Minute Warm-ups!

Getting into the really gritty bits of animating my final so I decided to take a break and do something fun and quick in photoshop.  Just a basic walk-cycle for practice since Pollo’s anatomy is so wacky!

Also a little sketch practice with Prof. Alexander.

Anansi

Just some character designs I did based on the West African God, Anansi (the spider). I really wanted to design one of the tricksters, but pop culture has already kind of ran with Loki and Hermes, and Anansi is probably my favorite of them anyway!

And here I’ve done a few more sketches based on some stories we read, along with a couple extra characters and Anansi’s spider form. Lots of fun!

Final Designs!

These are the final official characters I’ve designed and will be put in charge of animating for the collaborative project! Can’t wait!

Mr. Barkley is going to be rigged and highly caffeinated.

And my baby, Mo, gets to be rudely interrupted in his marathon by a pie to the face.

Colored and Sketchy Sketches

A few quick character sketches, including my dog and me and more practice for my other projects.

Lately I’ve adopted blocked in color as another form of sketching, because it’s quick, simple and it’s easy to make look nice if you really end up liking the outcome!

Some practice for a commission from a coworker, her cute dog Sophie!

I’ve recently started playing Pokémon games again… biggest mistake a college senior can ever make.
