Website Update

I have updated the image size as well as the body copy on the About Page.

I am a strong believer in bettering myself with self-study and completing projects at a high level of quality. I also feel that if you take on a project you should come out at the end of the project better than you went in, this shows that you put all you had and more into the brief.

I am looking to grow and go to the next level in my experience and creative career. I do hope that you like what you see and that I hear from you soon.

I am currently working as a 3D Animation lecturer while continuing my studies of Advance character animation with Animation Mentor.

I consider myself to be a very diverse person, in my interests as well as my creativity. I want to grow as a creative and nurture my passion for incredible design and idea creation.

I am extremely hard working, goal orientated and dedicated. I consider myself to be socially well adapted, I am used to working in a deadline driven, highly pressurized environment and that has taught me to cope with stressful situations. I enjoy new challenges. I am honest, reliable and loyal.

Week 02 – Full Body Walks Part 2

This week we had to spline out our walk from the week before as well as create more poses. The theme for the poses this week is body in motion, we have to show bodies in motion with a focus on strong lines of action, appeal and balance. Basically the principles of animation.

 



Week 02 – Full Body Walks Part 1

This week was pretty fun. We had to create or rather start to animation a full body walk cycle using Stella. We had the option of creating another vanilla walk or a walk with character. I went the walk with character route. I decided to to add some high heels to Stella and have her strut her stuff.

So as with any animation I had to go find or film my reference. I found a “How to walk in high heels” tutorial video on YouTube (how lucky). So I downloaded it and cut out the pieces of the video that I did not need.

Class 02 – Body Mechanics STARTS!

Well we start again!

Animation Mentor is back up and running and I am now in Class 02 – Body Mechanics!!

We start off the first week with uploading our Progress Reel from the last class and a pose assignment. We have to use our new rig called, Stella.

We have to show a body in motion with strong lines of action, balance and appeal. So we had to do some planning sketches and then select two we would like to pose.

Week 12 – The final week of Class 01

Wow this went by so fast! We are the final week of Animation Basics.

I must say it was freaking awesome I really enjoyed myself and I would just like to thank Mr Sean McComber for being a awesome mentor and guiding me through the first class at Animation Mentor!

All we had to really do this week is take all our work that we did during our 12 weeks at Animation Mentor and create a single video showcasing our work so that next mentor can see our level for the next class which will be Body Mechanics
