Dragon Polishing 1st Pass and iA Progress Reel

This week's turn out.  Going to finish this up in the next couple of days, still have a couple problem areas, but I think its coming along.

Also, my progress reel for iA was due, seems like a big change from the first to the last, gotta go back and fix that pace assignment.

Dragon 3rd Pass

Here is my most recent pass on the dragon weight lift.  Lots of timing changes were made this week.  Still lots to do.

Dragon Second Pass and New Reel

For a record of three posts in a day, here's the last one.  One is my dragon weight assignment, wasn't feeling very well and was super busy so I didn't get as much done on it as I would like.  This is my second pass, I'm going to try to get as much done next week as humanly possible since its supposed to be the last week for this assignment.  The other is my reel I managed to put together for my website.  Its up, it'll probably be changed within a week, definitely within two or three, but I'm glad to have it together :)

Promise Render

I rendered out this one today.  My most recent file got corrupted, so I did a little fixing, but I lost some of the work I had done in the face last week, which is a bummer.  I am sure I will return to this next week in order to get it fixed up, but for now due to deadlines, this is what it is.

Also thinking I might have to go through and lighten these pieces for my reel in after effects, they seem so dark on my pc.

True Love Render

Finished this up yesterday.  There's still some work that needs to be done to it, especially when he comes back down after he says "true or not you, see", the spacing I feel could use a bit of work.  (Actually it bothers me so much that if I get time, I'm going to go back in tonight and fix it and re-render it over night)  But since I have to get this out asap, I'm going to leave it as is right now and return to it in a week or two after I finish up some other projects.  Its weird going back into a piece that I animated a year ago and looking at my curves. So bad.

Sneak Render

Sped this up a tiny bit and I think it feels better.  This finished rendering last night, so I thought I'd post it before I go run my 10k this morning.  Going to probably be posting quite a bit this weekend since I need to get two reels together for Monday.

Photo Drop

Well, thought I might as well use this blog for more than animation and post some of the pictures I've been taking.  Some of the views on my morning run are awesome.

Dragon week 2

Here's where I am right now, I only went through and made some timing changes and cleaned up what I could.  Parts of it are too smooth now, got a lot to still do to it.  Also been working on my other piece "promise" during lunch breaks for the last couple weeks.  Had a friend give me some notes which I'll apply this week then maybe I'll post it here.

Rough blocking

This is my first blocking pass.  There has been no cleaning on it, so its super poppy and messy.  I'm going to start cleaning it next week.
