Southern Romance

Its the classic story of a hopelessly smitten yokel teenager and the lovely farmer's daughter.  I think I had too much fun with this one.  It gets a little bold here and there haha.  Oh yeah- almost forgot song credits- "Love Hurts" by Nazareth and "Daddy's Hands" by Holly Dunn and Dolly Parton.

DFA LaBORatory

Here's some character design stuff from the latest project in my "Drawing for Animators" class.  A lot of them were conceived from random squiggles and shadow blotches.  It was All KINDS of fun :)

Moleskine Initiation

So I'm finally breaking into this moleskin sketchbook I got from a dying Border's book store a few months back.  What better way to commemorate it than by drawing an ACTUAL mole?! (-whose very skin the sketchbook is based on)  HYUCK YUK!  ...Also a few more pages

Story Images

Our last assignment in Concept II was to churn out a bunch of story images.  In case you were wondering, I love drawing open mouths.

This one is based on the unfortunate true story of an instance where I burst into my 12 grade English class, five minutes late and choking on carrots.  This was the tragic result of running as fast as I could while furiously eating carrots at the same rate (I had worked through my lunch period and was starving).  Naturally, the first thing you do after running as fast as you can is taking a huge breath, so it didn't help that my mouth was full of choke-sized carrot bits.  I burst through the door to a room full of quiet, seated peers and immediately began hacking carrots all over them.  It... it just happened so fast.

This ones about a guy who gets smacked in the face by an angry baboon avery time he smokes a cigarette.  I don't think theres anything else to say.

The other CA projects

I decided to put all my other CA projects into one heaping post- and here they are:

This was my simple polygon character from the first semester.  It was modeled, rigged, and animated with LOVE.  Originally, this little guy did a jump where his spoon was slightly airborne, but I decided to cut it.

Ahh, Robie.  you wonderfully annoying, bucktooth trashcan of a midget robot.  We all had to model this weird thing using nurbs.  It was MIND-NURBING (sorry for that)

This is the first part of our texturing/lighting assignment.  The clip is of a cemetery at daybreak while the still image beneath it is the night scene.  We were all given the same cemetery set to texture and light.  Yeeee.

The second part of the assignment, was to light and texture a still life with fruit.  And um yeah... painting textures and lighting and what-not.  It was delicious.

More Animatics

Here's a bunch of animatics I did for my concept classes this year.  Some are better than others and there are definite areas of scraggly/shoddy-ness, but they were still pretty fun to make.

Sit Stand

H’okaay so….This is the reason I haven’t posted anything in two months- but now summer time is here and I’m gonna’ get all up in the posting like whoa.  You don’t even know it.  You just. Don’t.  Know. (haha watch me post like 2 things before slacking off again)  A-HEMM!

            ANYHOW- This is my SitStand assignment for Computer Animation II.  We had to design, model, and rig up a character and then animate it sitting and standing in a custom environment we also built.  When I get the chance, I’d like to go in and seriously re-work parts of the animation and maybe even color-correct some stuff. As it stands (and sits) I call it a work in progress.  Also, I threw in some process work from my portfolio for good measure.  But yeah, this little doozey was quite the endeavor.

The Raven Animatic

This is an old animatic that I didn't bother fixing until JUST now-

The assignment was to have a raven knock a flower pot onto a passerby.  I decided to go way of Poe.

Theres A LOT of other stuff that needs fixin' and postin' but I choose to put it all off for now. Instead I'll show this rough dialogue test I made for the 11 second club.  Its too bad I missed the deadline by just a few minutes- had fun though.
