Quote of the Day

"Music is the silence between notes."

This is a nice little quote.  I think it applies to many things in life as well as animation.

Creature Animation

I've been working on this creature animation for the past couple of days. After doing my block in one, I realized that I wasn't quite getting the sense of weight that I wanted. In this animation, I was really working for that realistic sense of weight and a more naturalistic type "vis effects" movement. In block in...1.5 i suppose, I think I tackled most of the weight issues and the piece is finally starting to shape up.

New animation

Sooo...I decided to scrap the squirrel animation. I started to dread working on it and i didn't really d0 good job of planning it out. So instead of fighting through it, I started clean. This new animation is shorter and simpler. So here it is...a humanoid creature- A bit scary too. Block in one.

Sidetracked


Here are a series of paintings I did for a friend. She wanted something to decorate her room and really liked the brand Roxy. So these are a few roxy inspired, colorful paintings.
