Waiting, that's the project. Sounds fun right? It actually was! Our assignment was to animate a person waiting. It could be for someone, for something, for anything as long as they were waiting. I took mine in terms of a chauffeur waiting for someone at the airport. This was the last assignment in the series of little animation projects, now we are on to the big one for the semester...the Push Pull. I will try to keep you updated on how that one is going throughout different points of it, so keep checking in. Enjoy!

Silhouette- It's all about the pose!

Alright, so here is our second computer animation project for the year. It's another quick exercise like the walk cycle and we had about a week and a half to work on it. The basis of the project was that we were each given six words to choose three from. The three that we chose were the foundation of our animation and we had to get across those three emotions through our poses. The three words I chose were: hopeful, confused, and panicked. My story went something like this... Arti (the character) is hopeful that his love will come out from her window to see him, but gets confused when she doesn't end up coming out and finally panics when he hears her dad's voice yelling. Short and sweet, but it gives him some character. Enjoy!

The Start of a New Year: Junior Year

It's been a busy summer, but I'm back at Ringling now and we're already done with the first two weeks of school. We are off to a running start with lots of assignments and lots of work. Although, I must say I am enjoying them all quite a bit right now. I'm excited for the upcoming year and all that I will encounter, but also nervous due to the fact that second semester means pitching a thesis idea...scary. I should be posting quite a bit of work as the year moves forward, but here is the first project of CA (Computer Animation) for this semester.

It is just a walk cycle, but our teacher told us to show him what we could do, so I did my best in the time allotted. We were given the character and told to animate. I gave the character a happy go-lucky kind of attitude, almost as if he just had his first kiss. Enjoy!
