Intro to TVP Animation: The Frog and the Fly

As the second part of our introduction to TVP Animation, we had to, in 2½ days, make a 10 second animation with a given layout and the premise, "a frog sits peacefully on a water lily. A fly enters..." Of course, a lot of drawings (read: all the inbetweens) are missing in this, but it should still read pretty clear.

This assignment concludes my first semester at The Animation Workshop. Kudos to everyone at the school, you guys have been great so far.

Happy Holidays!

Intro to TVP Animation: A Flying Bird

This week, we began using TV Paint for the first time. Our first assignment was to create a cycle of a somewhat naturalistic flying bird in the program. We had only a day to finish the assignment but once I got a hang of the program, I could work pretty quick. Given that it was the first time I used the program, plus the fact that I had never animated proper flight before (which meant I had to study both birds anatomy and the physics of flight), I'm pretty happy with my little pigeon.

Attitude Walk: The (Sneaky) Pink Panther

Here's another walk cycle of the Pink Panther. For this Walk Animation Assignment we had to show an attitude. Mine was "sneaky". We shot a reference video of ourselves acting out what attitude we had, after which a number of people commented that I had a very unusual way of sneaking, which probably shows in the following animation.
Compare this walk to the one I did one post down and You will see what I mean when I say that "for the attitude walk animation, I wanted to challenge myself more".
