Sophomore: Part ii

Semester Two! The goods again:

Computer Animation
Animation quadfecta: given a rig and animate away. I couldn't find all 4 exercises of the the quadfecta unfortunately so 2 out of 4 will have to do.

Finger point:

Walk Cycle:

Next assignments focused on lighting, texturing and compositing.
We lit and textured a cemetery

And finally, a bunch of assets to arrange how we would to create a still life:

Concept Development

Assignment 1: An animatic based on a nursery rhyme/fairy tale. This one is Aesop's fable "The Fox and the Goat"

Assignment 2: Animatic with a montage. Tried telling a story not in the comedy genre.

Final: Anything we wanted. This assignment drove me nuts, too much creative freedom. But it worked out in the end, and I really have my teacher to thank for helping me throughout while maintaining the tone I wanted for this

And finally, a little animation I did for my cultural anthropology class. We had to choose an art form from a specific culture and do a presentation on it. I chose Thai shadow puppetry, and for the art part of the project, made a very very short shadow puppet show.
