It's been a long long time since I last posted something here. I was busy with my internship at Illumination Mac Guff in Paris. The school blog, as my course comes to an end start to lose its reason. I'll may keep it, with a different name perhaps, for there's so much material here.
Another stage of my life is coming and I'm looking forward to see what's gonna happen. Posts will tell what's gonna happen.
This drawing was made at Orsay Museum in Paris in one of my several tours there. The museum has an amazing corridor with sculptures, which on the sides two huge benches go along until the end of the hall. That allow people to sit and contemplate the sculptures for as long as they want. It's an amazing invitation for artist.
Stay tuned, more to come
This is the shot 11 of my project I may have done about a year ago.
It's still rough, some frames are missing and the character is suppose to be with his girlfriend (that's why he looks into the screen).
I didn't have the frames of this shot scanned, while selecting the drawings to trow away I almost did with these originals (!!)
Honestly I'm not satisfied with the animation I did here. Specially when the boy stop walking, the arm moves as a follow through but we don't feel the weight of the tire influencing his body. It definitely needs more passion...
My period at The Animation Workshop is coming to an end. Now that I'm having a liitle bit of free time (sorry for not posting all the stuff that have made me very busy during the past couple of months) I've been through a hard selection of drawings. I have so many and, together, they are so heavy. I have selected some nice ones that I want to keep, some I digitalized and others I just had to get rid of...
Moreover after achieving this I could go to the fantastic worlds of Shapes, Values, Colors...(sigh) I'm so screwed...
I've been doing this Great Dane cycles as a quadruped practice. It's been lots of fun doing it, but very hard too. Especially when you download a free rig and don't really know the character ending up getting caught by the "surprise" the rig has.
I gotta keep this blog running anyway, hehe
I've decided to take my winter vacation to develop color skills. Compared to CG students we, animators, barely had color class. So this is time to make something that is not moving and so important to any designer. I started very basic, learning how the light influence colors and mood on basically one object.
It's a looong way...
