Walk Cycle Sketches

Before I made my walk cycle for animation 2, I did some sketches studying people's walk cycles as they walked by.

There was

Practicing figure drawing with silhouettes. It's really helpful to only think of the shapes of the figures.

What Did You Do?!?!

I was sketching out an idea where Amadi messes up and helps Zuberi tap into the evil/magical forest's power. Now with almighty power Zuberi goes on a fun, evil rampage.

Pokemon Season

It's summer time again!
Which means more sleep, free time, 
and Pokemon!
Yes, Pokemon.
What better way to spend the beginning of a new summer than battling cute little monsters with your friends. We found a online MMO where we can play Pokemon together and it's a blast. 
I've been drawing Pokemon a lot too. Trying to plan out a good team and because some Pokemon have really neat designs.

As A Team

More sketches! 
I've been working on character interaction more. Trying to avoid the awkward always-standing-at-a-safe-distance-from-each-other situation and make the character poses look more interesting. I decided to work with these two characters, Dante and Jack, because of their fun relationship. They're friends and work partners so they often have to work as a team, but their personality differences usually makes teamwork difficult.

I was sketching out some idea where the two are searching the sewer for a criminal headquarters, but Dante didn't want to ruin his clothes. So the only solution was for him to ride on Jack's shoulders, where he can do the shooting while Jack does all of the running.
As a team.

Making My Way Down Town

I animated a walk cycle with personality for Animation 2 this week.
I really really wanted to animate a pigeon because of the silly way birds bob their heads when they walk. Sounded like something super fun to animate. This also gave me the possibility of making it a goofy character.
So I started with design ideas.

At first I wanted it to wear a suit and be a sort of secret agent sort of character. It would probably be really bad at their job seeing how it's a giant, clumsy pigeon-person. I couldn't get the shape of the suit to work with the character very well, though. So I decided to go with casual clothing that would give me a fun silhouette for the character. Then I animated him/her/it when I was satisfied with the design.
