Getting stuff done

So I spend almost five hours inking all the frames in my 20 second animation. Hooray for not procrastinating! So now I just have to colour them all in tomorrow and after effects my life and then I'm done with animation work 'til October!
These two are scenes from it, the dinosaur is licking his human friend who is on a separate thing and with the cat I decided to play with it on Photoshop, just hope I can make it look that nice on the real thing. I also hope the gifs play.

Speed paints

I've decided over summer, whilst learning to drive, I'm going to focus on doing lots of speed paintings and some quick animations. Mainly because I did these few speed paints within a day or two and fell in love with the process.
I'm also very close to finishing my animations for this term, just need to finishing inking my 20 second then colour it all and then all there is left to do is put everything in after effects with backgrounds and bam! Finished! Then I can focus on the 2000 word essay, drawing and 3D.
Hoorah...

Some 3D work

These first two were from last year and early this year, so I'm sorry for the quality, max didn't seem to like me back then when it came to rendering. Part of the project was to do a happy, a sad and a neutral walk cycle, here are my happy and sad ones.

Sometime later, we were given a character rig from a website and just told to play with it. I decided to try my hand at a double bounce walk cycle.

Sculptris hates me now, this model has... sooo many triangles/polies and everytime it opens it crashes on me. And it's so close to finishing too D; She needs arrows, a knife on her leg, gloves and the clothing is meant to be chainmail and leather, oh and it needs to be coloured.


That's all for now. I'll try and get some 2D animation up when it looks nicer than it does right now!
