Week 7!!!

So here is my first pass at splining this week's assignment. It's coming about!

The new assignment (and the last one for Class 2) is to pick one of the following:
• Balancing on a beam *
• Dive off a diving board ***
• Throw a ball (baseball pitch) ***
• Pull or push a heavy object ****
• Open a sticky door ****

I chose the sticky door option and shot video reference yesterday. My best friend helped me with some of the moves. I tried to do the first take but fell flat on my face. Luckily there was no video camera and we were practicing in the backyard. I've had some of those ideas for quite some time. It's going to be fun to finally get these down on paper and animate them.

Week 6 - Blocking Plus

Here is my submission for Week 6. This week was blocking plus. That's where we take the comments from last week's e-critique and add in a few more keyframes and breakdowns. Mike suggested I take out the fourth jump and just concentrate on the first three. Also to push the poses here and there. I also added in a few little subtle cues here and there.

Next week, we SPLINE!!!

First blocking

Here's my first blocking pass at this week's assignment of having Stewie jump from post to post. It's been a fun and interesting character to work with. No more Ballie! Yeah!! Don't get me wrong, he was a good character, but now I working with a character that has somewhat of a face. All I need are the arms next.

I still have some tweaking to do here and there but I like it so far. :D
