Mid Year Showreel - 1st year CA at The Animation Workshop

A closer look at the requirements for our Mid Year Showreel made me realize just how much material I was missing in my previous attempt at creating a showreel. This stretches back even further than the old one and it also has some newer material plus more of the all stuff inbetween. There is no sparetime drawings/animations in this but it is a very comprehensive collection of pretty much everything School I've done during my first 5 months at the Character Animation education at The animation Workshop.

Design 2

This week I had my second week of design. Concepts such as value, rendering and space were added to our previous lectures about shape, form and staging, and we went from having worked on a strictly abstract/graphic level to working towards fully rendered FINISHED pieces of Photoshop art. It was a huge leap and everyone in class (us Character Animators who are even more unexperienced than the CGA part of the class especially) are looking forward to a well-deserved weekend.
"Flower Power Fairy Metropolis" (13th of January 2012)

"A Chase Scene In a Steam Punk/Film Noir Environment" (12th of January 2012)

"Weapons For Atlantis" (10th of Januray 2012)

Note: All of the pictures are still unfinished but they show the progress I made during the week. As shown by the dates, I did the bottom one at the beginning of the week, the middle one next and the top one last.

Showreel - First Attempt

This is my first ever attempt at creating a showreel. i made it for school but it's not due untill Febuary, so by then, I'll most likely upload another reel with even more animations in it. The school requires our first showreel to show the progress we've been making during the first semester. Hence, the contents of this reel are, on purpose, both good and bad; it's every animation based school assignment I've had for the past 4 months.
