Just felt like doing a walk cycle…
hhhEEEEEEEEh Yaaahhhhhh! Hey look, I made another pencil test:
I finally got around to finishing it! I ended up taking this animation further than I intended when I first started it, but that is largely because I was learning the new software and wanted to test it out in each stage of a 2D production. It certainly has plenty of room for improvement, but it is definitily my best 2D animation to date:
I’m glad I got this one out of the way. I originally wanted to set myself up to do 2D so I could just do a whole bunch of quick pencil tests to study motion and get better at animation in general; but having started this project, I felt that I should finished before moving on, which ended up mentally blocking me from doing any of it. So hopefully I’ll start posting some of them-there pencil tests in the near future.
I got sidetracked from this project for quite a while, but have finally had some more time to put into it. Seeing it inked, I think it still needs a few inbetweens in a couple of spots to slow down and smooth out the motion. After that I get to do the effects animation of the water splashing, then finally go through and color it all… hopefully that will all go smoothly and I will have the final up shortly (ha ha, giggle giggle, nervous laugh)
Pencil test #2!
Often as I go through life and am about to do some action such as riding a bike, juping on a trampoline, or going off a diving board, my mind flashes to me the worse possible thing that could happen. Does this happen to anyone else? or is it just my over active imagination. It usually doesn’t scare me, but on the contrary makes me laugh.
I had so much fun with this pencil test, I think I may take it a step further and clean it up. (we’ll see if I make it to the coloring stage).
