Personal Work - Shaolin Granny

I've been smoothing this out a bit and changed up the ending slightly as I wanted a stronger pose.

ND Prep - Bedtime Story

Personal Work - Animation Practice #1

I've been working on some little animations as often as I can to help make me quicker and better as an animator and to fill any knowledge gaps that I think I have. The first one is a little bit of voice acting, using a rig from Long Winter Studios.

Next up I wanted to work on bringing some character to a basic dog rig, I tried to capture some behavioural traits that I enjoy from dogs.

Lastly I am currently working on a shaolin granny, I wanted it to be funny and to give me a chance to work on something with a bit more action. This is how the blocking currently looks, any feedback for any of these is appreciated!

I wanted it to be quite a clean design, keeping it as simple as possible.

Personal Work - Crushed Soul Lip Sync #1

I decided that (as well as working on and improving my film) I would practice some lip syncing as it is something I haven't done a lot of. I'm currently working on the blocking out of the body and once that is starting to get a bit more refined I will then add in the lip sync. 

This one is a bit of a warm up as I plan on completing the 11 seconds club June competition, which is a lovely clip from Guardians of the Galaxy. This character is from Long Winter Studios, It has lots of wonderful features and the rig is really great to work with. Looking forward to getting this scene nailed and starting on the 11 seconds club animation!
