Speedy Senior

video

Here's my current animation. Apparently, the old man is very frightened to see the little reaper. Enough so that he takes off with great speed. I have a few more things to tweak, but I'd say 90-95% is done. I'm still debating whether or not I'm going to color it, but I still need to scan the whole thing.

Almost there...

video

I finished most of the lip-syncing today, although I need to tweak some parts. As for the old man, he still needs his "run" but I used the walk cycle frames as place holders (it just has a bigger gap between them).

Life Drawing 10/25


I tried a different approach this time. I just focused on the clothes rather than fully outlining the figure. I did add some lighter lines to suggest the hair/head.

Updated ver.

video

Here's my err... more recent rough draft/test. I pretty much got down the gestures. I need to fix a few parts but other then that, it looks ok. I'm still avoiding lip-syncing to finish working on the old man. He's been neglected long enough.

Redoing the animation

video

This is what I have so far for my animation. Such a long way to go.... I redid a few parts of it. The ending is going to be the same as the other one, but I need to work on the "doctors and medicines" part. Also I animated the old man wrong. I'll fix that when I get a chance. Still no lip-syncing yet.

Beach Time


This is bits and pieces of a conversation I heard on the bus. For the 'Where she at?' part was repeated twice.

And this is my life drawing from class.

Rough Pass

Rough Pass on Oct 11 Second Club from Michelle Taguchi on Vimeo.



Here's a rough pass of my 11 sec club animation. I still didn't add lip syncing or my walk cycle for the old man yet. I have an old man image as a place holder to where he should be in the animation. I didn't realize my little Grim Reaper has some really small steps. I'm going to take out quite a bit of frames in my animation as well. I have at least 20 frames on ones. I didn't get a chance to work on my little scene from Monday's excursion.

Partial Rough Pass



Here's what I have so far. I don't know why my video doesn't work on Youtube...but it works on Vimeo. I realized he started to shrink in the middle so I'm going to try and fix that now before I continue on with the animation.

That was simple...

I finally figured out why my animation was only in grey. I thought it was because the top layer was in a grey scale but the actual reason is kinda... simple. I just needed to switch the video option to one of the color options (256, thousand, million, million+). Well now I know. I think the grey scale one fits the scene more than the color. Both videos are the old file. I still didn't finish my discovery scene. Here's both of my discovery scenes, one in grey and the other color. Let me know which one you guys think is better.

Life Drawings and a Test



This is what I have so far. I think I'm going to make more changes to the keys. I didn't finish blocking the whole dialogue and I still have yet to animate the old man. Other than that, the animation looks ok so far.

Edit: I tried to upload my video several times but the animation never appears. I even tried posting it on Youtube. The file works fine on my computer so I don't know what's wrong with it.





Also, this is my very cheaply made Marquette. It's constructed out of kneaded eraser and part of a kabob stick.

11 sec club Storyboard


I tried to think of different ideas for the dialogue for the 11 second club, but it didn't seem to really match it. The best I could come up with is a scientist guy.
