Happy Friday everyone. Hope all of your weeks were glorious! It was sure a big one for me... I started teaching at CalArts this week, animation 1. I think the semesters gonna rock the house! The students seem pretty anxious learn, which makes it all the easier for me to be excited about teaching! so, to say the least i am tired! but a good tired, a satisfied tired.
Nothing too amazing to show you today. I'm being lazy and just showing some random drawings for fun. I have a very weird delight in characters that are portly, or thick... also known as big boned to you sensitive moms out there. There's so many interesting shapes that can be found in a character how has more mass to play with. Hense the big guy up top...
So anyhow next week I am gonna do a tutorial on the face and how it works. Mainly the eyes and eye brows. We'll just look at common mistakes when animating eyes, how to utilize the eye lids for maximum effect, and studied the actuall shape of an eye ball (hint: it's not a perfect circle). Till then! have a great weekend!
P.S. the tail on that test shot for the short is now animated! I am pretty pleased with it. I'm just finishing up the rest of the tied downs and inbetweens and then we move on to color. Sorry it's all taking so long, i am doing it inbetween other responsibilities! later!
