Assignments from my Character Animation class, in which we created a character and used it for most of the projects throughout the Fall 2013 semester Read Less
This is my character, James.
I made two 3 pose character turn around sheets of him
a character map
and a maquette using Sculpey, wire, and a wooden base, which I then painted over with white gesso.
Here is James walking
and here he is running.
One of our assignments was to make an animation in which our character does something and goes through a change of emotion. Below is a rough pencil test of James experiencing an emotional shift.
This is a fininished, inked animation of James's emotional shift.
For our final project we had to put our character through some sort of emotional shift again. Using our character map, we had to think and be able to explain why our character would do something or react a certain way. We also had to have a lip synch.
