Animation Update Ten

Much bigger update than last time. After the character finishes yawning he walks over and sits down. He then leans forward which is my favorite bit of animation so far. I have then started to block out some more movements including the big yawn.

Just a wee update to the animation. Yawn...

Animation Update Eight

Although I have restarted the animation looking at the work I have now produced I am very happy with the decision. I am working much faster than I have been and producing better results. This is due to me being much more focused in what I want to achieve but also partly due to having much less time to do the same amount of animation. It will be a difficult few weeks but I should manage to complete the animation in time.

Animation Update Seven

After the peer review on Wednesday I decided it would be best to just restart the animation again. I realised that I wasn't focusing on the right aspects of the animation. I was too getting to concerned with just making the character move and not how and why he was moving. So from now on I will have to keep reminding myself to always consider the mood of the character and let that inform how they move. Below is the start of what will hopefully be the final animation.

Animation Update Six and Peer Review

This is the animation I presented at todays peer review. Slightly updated from last time. But from the feedback  I received I don't think the animation is working as well as I would like. The decision I have to make is to either try to rework what I have done so far or to just start again from scratch...

Animation Update Five

Nothing much has changed during the start section but from the point where he leans on the bus shelter I have made some really good progress. I have a peer review next week and hope to have this entire section finished for then.

Animation Update Four

Building up the walk more by adding in the arm movements and also worked on the pause at the bus sign pose.

Animation Update Three

Finally, some actual movement, roughing in the leg movements for the walk to the sign. Still early days though.

Animation Update Two

Still just roughly blocking in the poses. It is all a bit slidey so I'll start to add in some holds and build up the animation from what I have so far.
