We were tasked to create a simple and preferably non-figurative character for this project and put it into a simple situation e.g. waiting for the mail, putting on some shoes. The animation didn't have to be long, but it did have to show the character's personality as clearly as possible.
I wonder how successful I was at it. I know I have a long way to go to create more mature and thoughtful animation... I've realised over a long time that I had a problem with the Timing and Posing of my characters. It looks 'regular' somehow and I feel I've not pushed it far enough to really get to the essence of the characters. Sometimes I wonder if I'm afraid to... It is something that I would need to really figure out.
Anyhoo, This took maybe... 3 days to do. If I started this assignment EARLIER, I would have had time enough to clean it up and make it presentable. Another thing I shall improve on is Discipline. I'll have to find another time to clean it up proper. I've had too much unfinished work in my life... It is becoming a bit sad. =___="
We'll learn as we go along...
