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.


D-9 Doodles

For one of my classes (on my other blog) we had to use our favorite live-action movie for some composition/gesture studies, which is District 9 for me!  Well, I got a little carried away and decided afterwards to take a small break from mountains of school work to doodle a couple silly things.

And now just a couple of ladies since I don’t think I draw ladies enough, with a special appearance by yours, truly.  Some of these are observational, most are fresh outta my mind tank.



Lately I’ve mostly done character design practice, so here’s a few samples from my 2 copy Continue reading


STC Concept Art

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!Screen Shot 2013-09-25 at 11.57.32 PM
