First Computer Animation- Ball Bounce

Here it is! My first computer animation! It's been a long time coming, but this is it. Our assignment wasn't just a basic ball bounce, but we had to have one self motivated, or a ball that was alive, and a plain ball. They could do anything, but the plain ball had to at least stop in the frame. It could only be 10 seconds, which at points didn't seem like enough, but I got it done and it looks pretty good. So here it is, my first computer animation. Enjoy!

Character Pantomime

Here is my pantomime. The assignment was to have a character come into the scene and interact with an object. There also had to be a clear change in emotion. I decided to have a little guy and a paper airplane. It isn't amazing, but I'm happy with it, besides the run at the end, which I will hopefully be changing and fixing soon. Anyway, enjoy!

So I've been doing a lot of sketching lately. I bring my sketchbook everywhere with me, I mean everywhere. I've really started to notice an improvement in my skills even since just the beginning of this school year. I'm surrounded by very talented artists and they help push me to be better. These sketches are all from my sketchbook and some aren't very good, but they're on the same pages as others, so I left them. Enjoy! There'll be more soon, hopefully!

Here is my first very basic walk cycle of the year for Traditional Animation II. It's nothing special, but our teacher just wanted us to get warmed up with it and use our character that we are using for our pantomime project, so that we could get used to the feel of the character. It didn't take long to get back into the swing of things and this walk cycle wasn't hard at all.
