Simple Poly Exercises

YAY!!! The semester is officially over! It has been a very tiring semester, but I have learned so much. This is my final Computer Animation assignment. It was a collection of different exercises: a jump, walk, and turn. We had to complete the exercises using a "simple poly" character or as my teacher likes to put it, an object with legs. I went through different character designs, but decided on a simple mailbox. I decided to use a more simple character because I wanted to focus more on the animation of the character and less on the design of him. This was a great assignment and definitely taught me a lot. Enjoy!

Thief Animatic

This is our final project for Concept I. It is an animatic, a video of drawings from the main beats of a story. The assignment was to create a story where one character wanted to steal a bite of another character's food. We also had to have one character that was non-human. My story involves a rat and a not ratatouille...just watch and enjoy!
