3D Animation!

So I modeled, textured, rigged (with a little help from my roommate, Richie) and animated this extremely short piece of animation for my Maya 1 class my first semester of grad school.

Little Knight

So the original purpose of this blog was to show the progress of my Littlest Knight animation. Then my computer crashed and it got put on hold... Fast forward to two years later and here we are again.

I did this animation for the First Annual Capstone Senior Animation Showcase at Cal State LA. the entire thing was stroyboarded and animated in about a week and a half. I'm going to continue working on this (more color, painted backgrounds, expanded story and animation, etc.) to get it more like the original concept, but as it is I like it.

This version doesn't have sound. Jim Ovelmen (a professor of mine) did the sound for it when it played at the show, and I don't have that version.

Same girl... almost

So I downloaded some photoshop brushes and was looking at a tutorial, and thought I would try something out. Spent a couple hours blending the colors , and I like how it came out (although next time I think I need to go darker with the shadows)

On the plus side I adjusted the colors a bit to look better on my laptop screen (and hopefully on every other screen too)

Two posts in one month.... What?

So I drew this on my new Cintiq tablet (well new to me, I bought it used). I just wanted to mess around a bit with color. And in drawing it I realized I do not draw females nearly enough... I just draw dudes all the time. Hopefully that will change... here is to gender equality.
and I just realized this looks ten times better on my tablet screen than on my laptop screen... I have to remedy that sometime in the future.

So the first image is for an animation project I'm working on now. The second one was just something I had wanted to do for a while. I really need to scan some more pictures... Later

2010

A new decade... Got some good things going on right now, working on some animation projects for people, about to start substitute teaching. Only more good things can come. And some art, an old sketch that I threw some quick colors on... enjoy.
