Vertical Pan

The second last project we had to do in layout was either a vertical or horizontal pan featuring two characters.
If you drag the image into the url bar you can see a larger version of it.
Blogger scaled it down which is ok seeing as the original image size is about 3000px in height...

Bubz on Display!

I was so excited and honored when I found this out!
One of my character posing sheets for Bubz is on display in the second floor Animation hall :)

-Sorry for the weird green center in the pics... IPhone 4 fail-

Enjoy ~<3

Bubz is in the lower right corner with other extremely well done pose sheets!
Good job everyone!

Core ~ Inspired by Jamie Hewlett

Probably one of my favourite character projects yet!
We had to pick an artist and design a character in his/her style.
It was a bit challenging because I really had to study Jamie's art style and really work the line weight, but I think I did a good job.
I named her Core; not too sure why it just seemed to stick with me.

Dex Expression Sheet

After Effects ~ 2D to 3D Layering

Once again, trying out new programs...
Here is Adobe After Effects!
This exercise was fairly simple, a few 2D drawings and how to make them appear three dimensional...
Oh! And how to move the camera plus some sort of effect on one of the layers... hence the glowing Daikon from my rotation hahaha!
All of the images used were done by me.
