You Stole From My Kin! Final

Here's the final version of my entry for the January 11 Second Club. Didn't get done in time to submit, but wanted to finish it up anyway.

Now I'm moving on to the February sound clip. This one will be a fun challenge! Animating some swing dancing! Determined to get this one done by the end of February.

Decided to post my Storyboarding assignments. Our first assignment was to storyboard out a Gag Cartoon. I decided to go with a bird getting revenge:

Our next assignment was a Reverse Storyboard where we picked a scene from a film to storyboard out. The goal was to analyze the camera angles/moves and light of the scene. I, of course, did a scene from Up.

You Stole From My Kin!

In my Advanced Animation class, we are able to decide what we want to focus on animation wise and create our own projects. I decided to participate in the 11 Second Club monthly competition. I figured having a new sound clip to animate to every month will give me some good character animation practice... and hopefully some strong pieces to add to my demo reel!

This is the one for January. I know January is over now, but I loved the sound clip too much that I wanted to animate to it even though I wasn't able to submit it in time.

I roughed out the animation and lip sync last week. This week I'll go through and flush it all out and make it pretty! Will also be exaggerating some poses more and pushing the actions a bit more. I'm having a lot of fun with this sound clip and character. :)

NOTE: The sound may seem to be off from my animation for some reason. It all lines up in my Maya file. I swear!
