Animation Student Collective: Secret Santa Project

For the ASC we held a secret santa art trade event. We wrote our name down, along with our favorite character, on a slip of paper. Then each of us drew names. For my secret santa I had to draw Gai Sensei from Naruto. I did Gai Sensei in my own style, so that's why he doesn't look identical to the actual. The student who got my Gai Sensei was very happy with it. Happy Holidays everyone!

Tutorial: Drawing Hands

Here is a hand tutorial I created for the student group I belong to. The Animation Student Collective (ASC). Apparently it's become very popular on Tumblr, and so that makes me want to post it here as well. Anywho, here is the tutorial, I hope it's helpful!

Character Design: A Character in 9 Eras

A character in 9 different eras, 9 different outfits, 9 different occupations. You get the idea.

The first picture from left to right:
-Bard, Caveman (because 'Caveman' is an occupation), Pro wrestler, Scribe, and blacksmith

The second image from left to right:
- Chimney sweep, knight, woodsman, pirate

Effect Animation: Smoke Fox

For animation 2 we had to animate some kind of effect. I love smoke, and if cigarettes didn't mean death I would smoke just to watch the smoke. Smoke. It's beautiful. Originally I had a 450 frame animation that was going nowhere fast. So I redid it when I had time, finally, and this is what it turned into. It's not entirely finished, it's still in progress, but it's very close and I just wanted to upload this in case I don't' get to finish it within the near future.

Animatic: Pet Palace

For my Time Based Media Design class we had to make up some kind of doggie daycare company and make a logo, and advertisement, and an animatic for a commercial for the doggie daycare. I called mine Pet Palace, and the animatic is basically this owner going on vacation and the dog, Caesar, is so excited to go to Pet Palace because "He thinks HE'S going on vacation". I had a lot of fun with this, and hopefully I will get better at doing animatics in the future.

Character Design: Maggie from "Zoo Hero"

In class we're doing this whole big project with characters and story and creating ... stuff. Basically ...

On a school field trip to the zoo, Maggie discovers a whole animal mafia. Her goal? To free the animals of the mafia tyranny. Little does she know, she is already a target before she even decides to free the animals. She has what the animal mafia wants most. A ring pop. Will she succeed? Will she free the animals? Will she escape with her ring pop in tact? Find out in "Zoo Hero"

Or something like that haha. I was set with the task of designing our main character and some of my process for creating her. She is overly tall compared to her classmates, is between the ages of 8 and 10. She dresses oddly and doesn't fit in. More power to ya sista. I love her!

Archie - Rough run Cycle

I've been working on a run cycle for this Aligator Character Archie :) I'm still trying to finish this up, and also add some head rotation into the cycle. I'm not sure why the dimensions of the video are so small ... I have no idea how to change this problem. It's BIGGER on youtube ... that's what she said.

Bekah's Birthday!

This is another birthday gift. I'm just not on top of being on time for my friend Bekah. Sorry this is late! This was the first chance I got to work on it. Thanks for all you do for the ASC Bekah we would be so lost without you! I know you like Wall•E so I thought this would be fitting :)

Mom's Birthday!

This is a birthday gift / card for my mom. She's always loved the cheshire cat so it's perfect. The only downside was that it was a late gift ... but it's worth it right? ...  RIGHT ??
