Week 3- Bouncing Ball


Great basic exercise creating a soccerball/basketball type bounce and make it look believable. It may not seem complex at all, but to the untrained animator, it's a bit tougher than you think! Getting to know the basics of animation is KEY before you try and bust out a sweet dialogue/acting shot.

Week 2- Random Pose














I saw this little girl trying to push this big cart full at work and I had to re-create that pose!

YAH! Quarter 1, Week 1

So Animation Mentor is pretty much gonna kick some arse! We just had our first Live Q&A Session with our first Mentor, Ray Chase. He was a cool dude! He seems to know what's up and I can't wait to get some good critiques and advice from him. Each student got a turn in the spot light of the webcam and introduced themselves. We talked for over an hour and it really felt just like a normal class-room! YAH!!!
