11 Second Club Entry

Hey, I'm going to be doing a traditional animation over at 11 Second Club this month! If you don't know what that is, head on over and check it out. It's a monthly animation contest and a great way to sharpen your skills. Here are some of my concept sketches. I'll be doing more on this tomorrow.

This turned out to be much harder than it looks. I'll do more tomorrow.

Animation!

Ok cool I've found my USB cable now but I'm not quite ready to post more images. Instead, here are some animation tests from Preston Blair's book. I tried to apply the wave lesson to a number of types of stiffnesses.



Ok maybe just one for now, Blogger isn't liking me right now.

Hit a snag

Not with the drawings really, but I just recently moved and I've lost my scanner USB cable! I'll scour my place tomorrow to find it and try to get my most recent drawings up soon. Sorry for the delay.

More work

I tried to apply the idea of the first lesson to a character of mine:

And did some more practice:

I'm going to keep going on this first lesson for the rest of the week, then maybe move on.

Time to learn to draw

This blog is to log my progress primarily in my participation with this cool service, being provided by ASIFA Hollywood and John K.

Aside from that, this blog will chronicle my struggle to become an animator while attending school, learning on my own, and participating in creating cartoons.

Wish me luck!
