Dex Coloured Walk Cycle

What the- I don't even!
A coloured version of Dex's walk cycle?!
Oh yes it is!!

We had to use either flipbook or Adobe's flash to colour our walk cycles in digitally....
Personally I don't enjoy either program because of how the lines turn out but regardless this was a nice one on one experience with the programs. In the end I went with Adobe's flash program for the colouring and digital line work.
If the time says 0:00 just hit the play button and it will start!

Textures for Layout

Finally it's reading week! Sorry I missed last week guys, mid terms were due and all that jazzy jazz!
So here are a couple update today and I will be sure to post more at some point this week!

Stay 'tooned!

Oh yea, about this project;
We had to draw one picture, scan it, print 3 copies and do the following:
1 with realistic texture
1 with our own style of texture
1 with a way past different texture

A Look Into My Sketches

Ahaha, it's been a while since I've shown you guys my sketches!
Here are a few of my personal favourite!

Enjoy ~<3

Fluffy animal girl

Some animal characters with different body types

Russell from Pixar's UP.
We have to choose an already created character, rotate their head, lip sync them to a "Meeow" voice then have them react. This was just some thought process...

(I do NOT own Russell, Russell is (c) Pixar)

My Fancy Pants Giraffe Character.
You'll see more of him soon!

Me just playing around with simple shapes found in the body.

Simple Layout Concepts

I did these roughs for my layout class.
We were discussing extremely simple layouts and here is my result.

Avatar Last Airbender ~ Layout Painting

What do you mean it's Wednesday?
That's a lie it's still totally Tuesday...
(late night in the animation lab haha)

Here it is! Big project 3/3!
This was called a Master Copy painting which basically consisted of us choosing one layout from an animation and making an exact replica painting of it.
I chose the Southern Air Temple from Avatar the Last Air Bender.
The painting is pretty huge and took me well over 11h worth of painting.

Dillo and the Bean ~ Character Sequence

Here is 1 of 3 big projects coming your way!
This is my character sequence featuring Dillo the armadillo and a mystical bean!

As stated in the video:
The music is (c) SquareSoft 2000
(Final Fantasy ~ IX Fairy Battle)
Character design and Art (c) Me (Krista-Marie Porter)

I have NO idea why the quality seemed to go down once the file was uploaded to youtube...
When I exported the movie from Adobe Premier on to my computer everything was fine.
I'll have to look into this...
