Sour Candy


This was my final project for the last class I took at the Academy of Art. It was wierd being in an Intro to Hand Animation Class, and having alot of the students taking the class because it was required for their CG degree.

You had students faking stuff in Flash, tweening and simply moving a cut object around because they didn't want to take the time to animate frame by frame. One student actually commented on how they couldn't understand why students would want to hand animate, when the computer could just render a CG object to look 2D. It was very depressing.

Anywho, I think it's pretty obvious from this animation, how much I was flailing about in class. I'm really excited to be doing John's Animation School, hopefully it will help me with the fundamentals that I'm so clearly lacking.

Lesson 1 - Second Try

The mass of the shapes and the angle of the axis on the shapes is still off, and they feels pretty stiff, but better then my first try.

Lesson 1

Just finished Lesson 1, I was feeling pretty good till I scanned it in. A quick side by side showed how off my drawings were. I definitely need to practice gauging the mass of the shapes.

Looks like I'll be redoing Lesson 1, before I move on to Lesson 2
