video

this was the first bit of drawn animation i have ever done. i think it went very well but could be alot better. i think that some of the frames could have had a bit more work on and if i had to do the same kind of thing again i would change my idea. this was the first thing that came to my mind at the time. i think adding colour to the cat was a good idea though

animation

over the last few weeks i have learned a large amount of the basics of animation, the first few rules and how to animate in Maya and drawings. im really looking forward to learning more about Maya and start to animate my eastern style drawings.

1st week of the animation course

My first week of the animation course was a great week. i learned alot and met some great people. I learned the first rule of animation - time

learning about the frame rate and how much to place in that 1 second. we had to start with a circle and make it into something using no more then 12 frames (which is harder then it looks) then when done reverse it so tat it ends as the same circle.

also started life drawing >< i hate life drawing
