Things have been going well at work with some interesting animation scenes to work on, and it’s so awesome that Atomic has been offering animation workshops such as flying former Pixar animator Mark Oftedal for a several day workshop, lifedrawing, storyboard instruction, and currently Harmony training. Next week I’m really looking forward to taking an intensive weekend workshop from Michal Makarewicz, another Pixar animator whose class I had the pleasure of attending when I was at the Animation Collaborative program. Thanks again goes to Atomic for the discount and sponsoring this.
Here is an animation study I just created in my spare time, thanks to Mark Oftedal’s idea for studying poses from an animation scene that you like – analyzed a scene from Hugo Cierzniak’s great short film “Dip N’ Dance” (that just so happened to have “flamenco” moves). Enjoyed the pushed poses with the cartoony use of timing for comedic effect and seeing how far I could push the “Joe” rig.
Also, here is a couple sketches I made last week with my new Staedtler Porous Point Pens, had fun just adding water for the watercolour effect.
