The first animation assignment of the year was to do a walk from one side of the page to the other, demonstrating some emotion. This year animation is much more involved with character acting, appeal and personality, whereas first year was mainly all technicalities. Animation is very tedious to do, especially fixing all the little mistakes after you shoot it, but the end result of a good sequence you completed is always great. This kid is just strolling through his backyard in the winter time and noticed some footprints... maybe its Sasquatch?
Here are two studies I did in grey scale, to focus on the tonal values of light and shade. This is one thing I need to improve on, and is the next step to becoming a better artist. I spent more time on the fish, it is much more refined and tightened up. The skull was more just a quick study.

Here's my first post in a long time. I didnt get around to much drawing in the summer, so I really had to get back into the groove of things. These were done in the last couple days. They range from 1 minute to 10 minutes, not in order though. Now that i'm back in school, more posts will follow.
