Dialogue shot

Another school assignment.
This was a real tough one. The first dialogue shot ever, with two fairly complex characters, in only four days.
Again, like last time, I focused a lot on the drawings, and making sure they worked, as this is by far my weakest side.
I think it payed off, but it means less time on making fluid motion.
Hopefully some day I can combine the two :)

Here it is, hope you like it:

There never was much hope...

The first animation here at school, including soundtrack.
That was great fun.

Bernard at bar

Another animation created about four days with lectures and such.
This time around I chose Bernard from The Rescuers to animate.
I had a hard time keeping it on model, I guess my 3d preference came through pretty clearly ;)

anyways, the story layout was, that the character is sitting in a bar waiting. That's it!
And it HAD to be five seconds. Nothing more, Nothing less. I added a few frames after it was done, just to hold that last pose a bit, so it ended at 125 frames or so.

I had a great time working on it, and got a chance to do some more subtle animation, which I absolutely love to do!
I had focus on not doing to much pose to pose animation. Hiding the keys is probably the wrong way to put it, but floating smoothly through the keys rather than key-hold-key-hold.

'Nough said, here it is:

Curious Baloo

A new animation I did last week.
Have a look:

The red line underneath is my construction lines (tied down versions), and as you can see, it diviates a bit at some points, because of changes I did during the clean-up (or tie down if you will) stage.
