Speed animation 74

Started this yesterday, but i didn't have time to finish it because i got swamped at work.  so in total this one took me about an hour.  It was fun. 

On another note i think that i'm going to switch this blog over to tumblr.  you can start following it here.  There is also a link in the sidebar for my tumblr.

Speed Animation 71

Good morning! Today a co worker of mine told me he has a really hard time doing walk and run cycles so i thought that i'd try doing a little run cycle with green ninja.  the timing isn't as textured as it should be, but this is what i finished with.  Decided to do some color too!  took me about 40 minutes with coloring.

The show is pretty funny and the writing has gotten better from the first episode.  i really enjoy the show a lot.  this test took about 10 minutes.

Speed Animation 66

Happy Friday everyone! today i wanted to do some cool stuff and i think that it turned out just alright.  not as happy with it as i'd like it to be.  This is the green ninja.  If you haven't seen any of the green ninja shorts you can check them out at this link:

I've worked on three of the Green Ninja shorts and they were all really fun to work on!  Todays test took me way longer than expected.  I didn't even have time to clean it up...  took me about an hour and a half. Have a great weekend everyone!!

Speed Animation 65

Whoa what a morning.  I was for sure animating really slow today... first I was stumped and i didn't know what to do... Then I started and it became really complicated...  But I forced myself to finish...  it took me about n hour and 15 minutes today.... shouldn't have taken me that long.  I tried to texture the timing with 1's. 2's and 3's.  a co worker of mine told me to try it out.  So I gave it a shot.  Get it?? ;)

Speed animation 64

Wow today's animation was painful.  I asked a co worker of mine what i should animate and he said a javelin throw.   I've never done a javelin throw so i watched some vids and i simplified it and tried to push poses.  i feel like i could have probably pushed some poses a bit more, but i'm not too mad with todays test.   took me about an hour and half since i needed to watch some vids and get some ref.

Speed Animation 63

Good Morning! Since it's #transformationtuesday i thought that i do something regarding that.  i was a bit ambitious today with my animation, but my original idea was a little more convoluted so this is the simplified version.  For those of you that may not be able to read the lip sync she says "WHO ATE MY POPTART?!!?" and transforms.  i tried a camera move which was a little weird to animate since it was my first time attempting it.  this was a fun test though.  this test took about an hour and 15 minutes.  Time to get some real work done.

Good morning! Start of a new week and the Niners won again yesterday! can't wait for this weekend already to watch them play the seahawks.  Anyway... Trying to push myself with more action animation and moving in perspective. no ref used.  this test took about 50 minutes.  had to to rough underneath and then did a more cleaned copy on top.

Speed Animation 61

Hey Guys!!  So yesterday i was shown Jeff Lai's Blog and he is an amazing animator!  So i thought that i'd try a little bit of that kind of animation myself.  I don't think that i was as successful as he was... but it was a nice learning experience!!  This test took me about 50 minutes because i actually did roughs first and then cleaned it up a little bit!  I'm trying to bring the quality of my animation back up!!

Speed Animation 58

Good morning! I'm still having an issue with my drawings and it's really starting to frustrate me and sometimes i feel like i just want to cut off my hand!! I'm really upset with my drawings... i've been in a rut for about a month and a half now and it's really starting to get old... i really hope this goes away soon.... this test took about 45 minutes

Speed animation 57

So the Niners won yesterday.... and YES I"M HAPPY ABOUT THAT!! I wanted to do a football animation but i got such a late start today that i had to do something simpler.  a little tired and stressed out today and it's only monday.  hopefully i can break out of this rut that i'm in this week and get into a good groove.  this test took about 30 minutes.

Happy Friday everyone!! I'm back and ready for more animation!  I haven't been sleeping well lately and i don't know why.  Sometimes i just feel like throwing my head as far away from my body as possible because the mind causes way too many problems, and i'm sure that's the reason why i'm having trouble sleeping.  anyway.... this test took me about 35 minutes give or take.
