The Bomb Shack

this friday we finally got to work with Ian in After Effects :D we experiemented with the timing and spacing of a plane flying by, letting go of a bomb that hits a shack.... unfortunantly in my one the shack does not blow up... but i am sure that we will learn that next week with Ian.... my little animation though simple reminds me of the games i use to play on the computer... hahaha funny that i am animating like it now.... remember simple things done well!!! just answer the questions that are provided in the task rather then adding on questions by making it complicated :D have a good weekend all

contact pose-mood

Yesterday in class with Frank we continued to explore the contact pose and how its important with in our animations....... THE MOOD!!! Frank yelled to us in his soothing voice! its so important! so i want you to not only show this through your pose... which you will do with a straight leg!!! i want to see in the back ground the frame of mind your charcater is in at the moment.... so here is my happy little girl contact pose :D

Video Reference - Contact Pose

Today in our thursday class with Frank we tried to nut out the key poses of our walks for our major porject via video reference. this helped us to realise what the pose would really look like rather than drawing from what we picture in our heads. it also helped me to analise the different parts of the body and how it would move through out the walk/ skip

Little Girl - key pose for walk

Now that the sotryboards and the animatic are done for most of us in the class, its time for us to start the big porject.... we talked about the EAP's we would need in our stories and one of fanks major points was that we need to practise our walks and runs more than once!!! so hopefully we will be showing some more of our animated work besides our major project.
part of our prep is knowing the four steps in a walk..... and what is the step that conveys the characters attitude?..... its the contact pose.
so here is my contact pose for my little girl
