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.
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.

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!

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.
