It feels good to paint again
While I am waiting for my ride, why don’t I post meaningless things like my final project renders for Maya. We had to create a space for a character and I chose Jay Gatsby from The Great Gatsby. If anything, it’s a big improvement from my last Maya project because I know how to make more than cubes but if anything I am most happy about the fact that I think I am never going to have to model in Maya againso that’s a good day in my book.
Here is my final for my Principles of 2D class: Sack Attack, the tragic tale of young Flour McSacky who learns the hard way that nothing is as it seems…bum bum BUUUUMMMM
I don’t know, I just haven’t drawn mermaids in a while and had the night off so it happened. Also, I couldn’t be bothered to draw two arms so the pose is weird but whatever mermAAAIIIDDDSS
Here is my basic walk I did for Principles of 2D. I chose to do Panic from Hercules because I like to make myself suffer. I didn’t do his face because I had a week and ain’t nobody got time for that, but I was proud to get his horns and tail in there (the assigned character only had a nose so I did a ton extra)
Everyone begins the school year with the wind in their hair, about to take on the world, but by the end if you aren’t wearing one piece of clothing you slept in to class, you are a liar.
Happy almost end of the school year!
A moment of silence for all the times we drew people with arms behind their back to avoid having to draw the hands.
Here is the head turn I animated for my 2D Principles class. The character is not mine (my professor gave use three key frames to work with), but this is my first character work and it was very frustrating at times, but I learned a lot.
I wish tumblr would let me post a picture to show the crazy stretch I got going on during the actual turn, but life isn’t perfect.
Here is the first animation I did this quarter. It’s just the basic bouncing ball that everyone starts out with. It is a lot harder than it looks, but I learned so much so I guess it did it’s job!
Playing with my photoshop brushes a bit more, and using this tutorial, drew some Dean in glasses because WHY NOT??!?
Wednesday cannot come fast enough.
For my Action Analysis class, my teacher gave us only one assignment to do at home for the whole quarter, bless his heart.
We had to complete a klutz book called “Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered” which was probably the most fun homework I have ever had in college because it is basically a drawing book for children that also includes jokes and sarcastic comments. Some pages included drawing as many hammer, candles, or alarm clocks as you could think of, drawing people flying, sitting, and even a page where you just drew monsters.
Anyways, I would recommend the book because it may seem like all fun and games, but looking through it, I could see myself progressing and getting better.
Here is a sketch that I really liked how it came out so I wanted to share it (it was on the “Don’t allow this page to stay blank” page so of course I drew mermaids)
Here are the gestures I did for my Action Analysis class, and it’s nice to see how much I have grown. From the very first day panicking when I only had two minutes to get down the whole figure including face, correct construction, and clothes, to today being able to get the whole figure in less than that.
All of these were done in two minutes or less. If anything, this class trained me to be kick ass at Pictionary. None of my friends are going to be faster with a pencil than me when I get home!
I am a third year animation student, hoping to carve my own place in the world.
