Week 8

So here is my Blocked out walk cycle for week 8. In week 9 we polish it up.

Week 8, Walk Blocking from Greg Marlow and Vimeo.

I chose the strong pose that I did for personal reasons. My dad is a brick and block mason and I have worked with him quite a lot in the past. It is very very hard work, and although a concrete block is only about 55 pounds it takes a lot of strength to be able to carry those all day.

So rather than convey strength by having my character lifting a very heavy object one time (like a huge rock) I decided to go somewhat more subtle and try to convey in the way that I did. Of course I am somewhat bias because I think of my dad when someone says strength. But hopefully I was able to put enough of that into the Stu pose to allow others to see it too.

If not I have a backup of Stu lifting a heavy rock :D

2d taylor

I wanted to tinker with some 2d so I created this jump with a character similar to the Taylor model from AM. I used Toon boom. It was fun. Made me analyze each frame much more carefully.

His tail is totally having some Volume problems. I mad do a cleanup of it soon. But no promises.

Week 7 (belated)

This is the final version (post revision) of my week 7 project with the Taylor model. It was focusing on Arcs and reiterating follow through.
