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!
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!
I was put in charge of finalizing half the storyboard for our 2-2:30 minute collaborative animation, so I spent a little time practicing expressions based on our 3D model. That’s right, I’m animating in 3D this time!
So there is another animation I’m working on, a collaborative video with my Special Topics Animation class. As of right now, I only have my concept art to post, but I’ve been put in charge of finalizing the second half of the storyboards of our 2 minute(?) long video. So that’ll be up soon!
And here’s some simple bear practice.
