Class 105 blocking

Here is my obstacle course animation. Still loads to do but not enough time. We were introduced to squash and stretch, and the assignment was to have a ball going through an obstacle course and correctly apply squash and stretch on the ball.

Class 104

Here is my try on this week's assignment and the main principles learned this week were timing and spacing. With those 2 principles correctly applied you can give an impression of weight to an animated object.

Excited Stu


Here's Stu. He's supposed to be very excited. Do you think he is?


Class 103

This third week seemed easy at the beginning but I quickly realised how overconfident I was.
We had to animate a simple basket ball bouncing and coming into rest. What I thought was going to take me a few hours to do ended up keeping me busy for a few days!

Class 102

My second week assignment consisted of going outside and drawing people around me doing different things, and then choosing the best sketch and represent it in 3d with the provided character. Here is what I came up with.

Animation Mentor

Having finished university, I really wanted to push my animation skills before getting into the job market. I really think that there is still a lot to learn in order for me to become a good animator .

So 3 weeks ago I officially started the Animation Mentor program. This has really been fantastic so far.

On the first week I missed my live lecture but there wasn't anything particular . I was presented to my mentor for this term. It's Ruth Daly , a professional animator working in the industry for many years already. She's very nice and really knows what she's talking about.

During the second week we were introduced to the traditional animation principles.
I thought that this first class was going to be easy but I was wrong. We just started and there's loads of work to do. The assignment for that week was to go outside and draw people around us and then select the best sketch and represent it in 3d.

This third week is about planning animation. My main assignment is to animate a bouncing soccer ball or basket ball. I'll try to have this blog updated with my work as much as possible; in the meantime, stay tuned.

Dinosaur animation

Hello to anybody reading this.
I've been pretty busy for the last couple of weeks. I recently finished my animation course at uni and hopefully will be graduating in a few months. A lot has happened since. Very sorry for those who were following this blog, I ll try to catch up. Here is a small short that I did with a friend for my vfx module. I did the dinausor animation and the vfx effect at the end.

Due to a lack of time I couldn't really refine the dinausor animation. It looks a bit like stop motion animation. I started refining it, so hopefully in a few weeks I'll be able to post the final revised version. Here is what I've done so far.
