Walk Cycle & Amarillo Amos

Amarillo Amos is a character I developed for my Animation 1 final.
It will be a 10 sec. animation. These are his primary character sheets.

Also here is a walk cycle I uploaded to Vimeo.
Better quality than Blogger or youtube, but no looping and it blocks some of the movement of the feet.. :/

Waving Flag & Bean Bag Test.

video
Flag was to billow in no more than 5-10 mph winds.




video
Bean bag is rough, he transitions from Bored, to piqued interest when hearing his foot flop to giddy. I need to add some more anticipation and pauses to frames.

Winter Quarter Continued.


So Winter quarter has finally passed, and spring quarter has sprung,
so here as promised is the rest of the work that I did.

I started out the quarter with a beard, you know.. for warmth and such. Also to fit in with cavemen. I feel that I was successful in my endeavor and decided to change it up a bit.

I figured that I could easily double as a freddie mercury look a like on the weekends for extra money.

It was cold without a beard or a mustache or clothes. But my calculator watch and little beanie didnt let me down.

ok..maybe I should have kept the mustache.

This is what my work space looked like this quarter. My living room was the only area I could find where I could recreate the awful lighting in Wallin bldg. I became a color master via my color theory class.

Life drawing.. "looks like something bowie would have in his house in the 80's"

because, doodles are funner than doing class work.


Is that a refrigerator jam packed with topo chicos (25) in GEORGIA? WHAAAAAAT?

Is that RUDYS BBQ IN GEORGIA?? Someone in Houston Texas loves me. Her name begins with MOMM and ends with A!

Chippewa square, that sign and ugly plant garden is where tom hanks sat in Forrest gump and talked about chocolates, vietnam and shrimp, and thats all I have to say about that.

This was from the St. Pattys day parade. I appreciate the man in the street on the bull horn telling everyone that they were going to hell. He was precious.

but not as precious as this beauuutiful pit dressed for the parade.

eh, eh? See what I did there?

Made it out safe, however... this was by far one of the worst days I have ever had.

Little post valentine love note.

Winter Quarter '10 so far..

Back in Savannah,
Seen some good stuff.
Went to the Circus, and it was called Illucination.
As in a hallucination that is ill.
I was half expecting the insane clown possie to come out.
You know..Juggalo Style.

This quarter : Color theory, Life Drawing, Speech.
