Drawings the keys out

This are some sketches I drew before posing or doing anything with my character in 3D.
I look at some reference and then took some poses and work it out in my own animation and how it would flow with the story and actions happening before and after. From here I did the previs which I have already uploaded and then the first block which has also been uploaded.

I did not put arms in all of the drawings because I was more concerned about the weight and mechanics of the torso and legs.

I always make little notes for myself as I rework come of the posing and some times add little drawing in between to help me understand the transition between poses.

Sudden Wind

video

This is the first block of the previs I uploaded before. I merely locked some poses down and worked the timing a bit. In this shot, the character is dancing when a sudden wind rises and blows his umbrella away.

Rain Dances


Dear reader:

                    This is part of the previs for my student short. I was just trying to see how everything worked in a 3D space with some of the poses I had chosen.

Doll Hunter


 Doll Hunter

He comes for your dolls
Ripping them out of their homes
Moving like a shadow it goes
Stealing everybody's hopes


Drawing I made in one of my many humanity classes. I was trying to capture the old age of the teacher and it came out looking like so. I was unable to scan it because I have lost the drawing but had a digital copy, basically a picture I took with a camera. As for the "poem", just made it up. I wanted to see if I could come up with something on the spot.

Eagle Head



Idea can come any where any time. This is one of those ideas that came while reading a book called "The Secret's Garden" in English class. It has nothing to do with the story or book at all actually but you our brains work in weird ways.

Eye


Music video created for Video &Sound Editing class.
Environment is in 3D and the animation was done in 2D using Adobe Flash.
The song is Mind's Eye by Wolfmother.

Things to come.

If there is nothing currently on this page it is only because I have been very busy animating my short film. It is, I believe, a roller coaster of experiences and quite a fun one too. I will be uploading some drawings, animations and a small music video I created last semester, hopefully soon.

Sorry to keep you waiting.
