Robot Lady Puppet vol-1

Here's what I've done in class the last hour. I'll work more on her tomorrow. I don't like her arms quite yet. I also think I want another magnet, maybe a little more narrow.

Any Suggestions?

Robot character-more sketches!

I've started making the puppet for my cut animation robot. Here's the sketch I'm using.

I changed her chest cones to head lights because they look strange, and she's going to be a multifunctional robot, she should have lights somewhere, lol.

Really Rough Animation for Fat Walk

Here at my vimeo account!

Untitled from Regine Francois on Vimeo.

I did this last week, and I've made a lot of progress on the animation for this (Will post it after it uploads to Vimeo!) But here is the rough animation for the fat man's walk.

I'm going to loop his walk cycle once I fix a few things and add secondary motion to his belly.

Robot Character

This is a sketch of the robot character I want to use for my cut animation walk cycle. She's a robot with magnets for hands. I don't have a name for her yet, but I will soon.

Right now I'm thinking I want her to run on screen and jump since my first animation is a regular walk cycle. I think it'll show a little range.

I have more sketches for her I did this weekend, I'll post them later.

Another turn around sketch!

I'm doing a little sequence with this character, I'm naming her something cute like "Poppy Seed" since she has a little flower on her dress.

It was fun to draw her, I can't wait to ink and animate her. The next character I make will probably be a robot for my cut animation walk cycle section.

Fat guy inked

As promised, here is my fat male character inked.

I used a combination of the pen tool and the brush tool. I like how it turned out.

Fat character ink

Just finished doing the inking on the 3/4 pose of my fat character. I used the brush tool instead of the pen tool. I'm not sure about the line weights though. I'm a little new at using the brush tool, but I wanted to see if using the brush tool with pressure made a difference in how the character looked.

Feedback would be great!!

Character for fat walk cycle

So I went home yesterday after class and started working on sketches for a fat character for a walk cycle.

Here are some body sketches, I picked the one with the check mark above it.

Here are some face sketches:

And here's the sketch of my turn around:

Tomorrow I'm going to clean this up in flash and begin working on the rough animation for his walk cycle!

Feedback would be great!!

shop sequence storyboard and character sketch

So here's the story board I drew up for the shopping sequence and a sketch of the character from my notebook.





So, for the rest of the week I'll be sketching and making model sheets for all of the characters I'll be using.

Feedback would be appreicated.

Start Senior Project 1 Work!!

My schedule is going to be pretty busy.

The things I'll be doing is:

1. A short shopping sequence line test
2. A lip sync sequence line test
3. A fat character walk cycle line test
4. A fat character walk cycle ink and paint
5. A cut animation walk cycle

I have about 3 months or so to finish all of this, and I will (somehow.)

I've got it all planned out. This week I will finish storyboards and character models.

I've already gotten started with the shopping sequence. It will be an animation of a little girl walking in the city, she passes a shop window with a sign on it. It is an ad for a big sale. The girl will do a facial take, then it will show the girl skipping away with shopping bags.
