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...

4 more Maya assignments

Here are the next Maya assignments (playblasts):
1. a bow (with a backstory and fitting acting)
The story here being a young man wanting to present a flower to the girl he likes. Unfortunately she's known for having a violent temper and he's caught her at a bad time - so he is cautious, but also hopeful his gesture will appease her, rather than give her a reason to beat him up.
2. a generic walk-cycle
3. a character walk-cycle (here a cartoony sneak)
4. a run-cycle

Trying to emulate weight-physics in 3D is surprisingly fun.

Gesture collection

A little collection of sketches from morning gesture-drawings.


















I could definitely feel it had been a while, felt all rusty in the far croquis-corners of my brain...
