Arcs and Path of Action

Alas my final result, again there is some stuff to improve, I could tweak the secondary animation on the hands and make the head more stable, and perhaps exaggerate some positions, but it's fine for now :)

And the torso was made, it's ironic that it was animated when I had a massive back pain and could not move it :P

The block test for the legs of my tap dance sequence, I hope to have the torso fully done By tomorrow!

Walk-Through - Blocking to Final

After a long painful week I polished the animation, the "last 10%" I never though I would make it...

I'm still not happy with some minor details but It's time to move on and start working on my next piece

Walk-Through- Blocking to Final

This is the semi final version of my work, so much to do tough, well I have a hole week to make it look smooth and sort out the time :) I hope it will look nicer then

I am starting to wonder why I give the posts these names... They really don't relate with the work I'm producing, they are more the titles of the video lectures, well I guess it maintains a certain sense of order!

This week I decided to publish a post a little bit earlier because I am feeling that I'm not having enough results on my block test, so if anyone wants to leave some feedback about this animation, specially around frames 78 to 129 . Anything will be welcome

Introduction to Staging and Composition

This week my mentor told me that I bit more than I could chew so I cut down the animatic by 30 odd frames
