Upon Request


Here's the second part of my lecture notes with little thumbnails of the hippo kicking the ball. Err... just overlook the spelling errors.

Not what I had in mind...

video

Toonboom tricked me. It showed my background in color, but when I exported the video, it turned out grey. I'm guessing the problem is that the top layer is grey and the bg was color. I still need to think of an ending... spent too much time cleaning the images.

Discovery Test

I still have to work on 1/3 of the inbetweens for the animation. This is a rough pass without any character features.

Chase Scene and Discovery...


Here is my chase scene along with my new discovery character. I'm still deciding on what my new discovery scene is about. My follow through character will not be in the discovery scene.

Scene - Room Design



I might change the scene design if I have time. I added a character to the scene to see how it looks. The third image is a scene design I copied from the "Art of Ratatouille". My room is really messy. I was debating whether or not to include the floor. I decided on this side of my room because I wanted to add the danger sign I had on the side.

Drawing Hands and Poses



Here's my 25 hand drawings. There are 3-4 of them I drew with my left head instead of my right. They actually turned out pretty well. I will post the new 1 min poses later. Here's the one from Wed. night.

Test Discovery

video

Here's a first pass/test of my discovery scene. I think I need to change it though. I have a feeling that when I actually animate this, it's going to be longer than 5 seconds.

New Character Design


This is my character design for the Discovery animation. I might make a few changes to him later. I tried to create a non-human character for this one, but it's a humanoid. For some reason, I'm drawing rabbits now.

Scanning the Artwork


Here's my best artwork of the model that came in on Thursday.


Here's my character design based on the model. Instead of having the towel, I made it into a sash instead around his waist.
