A Student at TAW

Hello there, people. I am a Character Animation student at The Animation Workshop.

After finishing school I went to The Drawing Academy to gain knowledge of/and skills in classical drawing techniques. I then applied for the The Animation Workshop for the second time and struck gold! This blog sums up what I've done and is doing now, both in school and for personal fun...

Dance Animation -second take-

I was so disappointed at the tied-down outcome of my first Dance animation assignment that I decided to use my 3 days of self-study making a whole new version. This time I chose the charming and bouncy piece of Bruno Coulais' soundtrack to Secret of Kells.
I then chose to use my own character, which I was comfortable and skilled at drawing. Animating this was much easier because of this. This is as far as I've managed to clean it up, and I left the rough animation and time-charts visible underneath because I like ruffs with charts; it makes it look like you know what you're doing :)

I may have taken the high-road on this, but the character's personality really comes across, and it gave me a great excuse to practise bounces, overshooting and settling-wobbles. Fat characters are fun to animate.

Also, here's an old little rough practise I did of a flirty finger-walk, 12,5 fps:
