He asked for a simple character sheet........

Why do I do this to myself!?!?!? ;

My Character Animation teacher asked for a simple character sheet and I go for the complicated color in Flash route...

...when I KNOW I am not the most computer savvy person when it comes to digital coloring... I mean that's why I'm taking digital illustration courses next semester... ^^;

Anyway here's my Work In Progress... Looks rather crappy...... :P

Animation In Progress- Bird Calls part 2- Characters

"Bird Chicks" the main characters for my upcoming animation, "Bird Calls"

The woman in the middle is based off the only picture I found of photographer, Louise Lawler. At least I think that's her... ^^;

The designs for the other two just popped into my head while drawing the Animatic (check the post below) so I decided to run with it...

Animation In Progress- Bird Calls part 1- Animatic

Found Sound Assignment: part 1

Agrggh... My second to last animation for my Animation III class is probably the most production heavy assignment I've done yet... :P

I HATE it...

The assignment was to go to and create an animation based on an artist with sound found on the website. I picked "Birdcalls" (God knows why...) by photographer Lousie Laweler.

This assignment is about 1 minute and 30 seconds of hand drawn animation, full of composting, over layering movements, and 3 extremely annoying women making bird calls for no apparent reason.

Here's the Animatic, done in Flash. My teacher liked my sketchy-ness in Flash so much he insisted I do everything hand drawn with a pencil, on paper........... Damn It! >:(

I hope I can get this done before Winter Animation Reviews... And this isn't even my final assignment... *Cries*

NEW Animation! --- "Green"- Poetry Assignment

Animated and Narrated by me! :D

Please watch in High Quality-- If you can :)

Done in Oil Pastels. My fingers are still sore... ;__;

This is my first finished animation for the 2008 Fall semester at school.
The assignment was to take a poem and (duh) animate it.
The poem I picked was "Green" by D.H. Lawrence.
