Drawing from Imagination - 2 point perspective

This was a two-point perspective assignment. The assignment was to draw a 2 point grid, draw an interior and finally light it with an artificial light.

First the two point grid:

Then the overlay: 

and finally the interior:

This didn't turn out that well. The line weight is all messed up and the drawing is not that clear.
However the lighting turned out really well. For artificial lighting, every wall/surface has a different base point for the light. So doing shadows for the staircase was very complicated and time consuming. But the hard work did pay off!
This is the overlay for the artificial light shadows.
and that's the final. I could still add some more detailing with some blending and some form shadows, but I'll leave that for later.

Thesis Animatic

This is my thesis animatic. It is quite crappy right now. The story needs a lot of development. I'm thinking of placing the cat in the attic with a bunch of other broken toys. Lets see how that turns out.

My friend Wini sent me a cat character design for my cat:

Some more references

Here is a cool animation reference for a running dog

Dodger Slow Motion Running from D__E on Vimeo.

And one awesome tiger reference! I wonder why we did not see this before, when I had to animate a tiger. I guess I've just become better at reference searching now ;D

The Fall Semester

Crazy funny looking walk cycles and animation, insanely complex yet simple drawing from imagination and a very random Pre-production work. That seems to sum up Fall 2010 for me..

Some of the animation work that I have been working on.

And some Drawing from Imagination:

This is the 1 point grid for my drawing

This is the overlay

And this is the final drawing! Quite simple for the final drawing, huh!! But its not that bad!
The next assignment was to add shadows
 This is the overlay for natural lighting.
And this is the final drawing................................

More to come!!!!!

Summer Classes

Phew!!! I never realized that the summer classes would be so hectic. The Story-boarding classes are really interesting but the assignments almost kill! But the good thing is, the character animation class is beginning to get interesting. I started off with an assignment to shoot and kill a chef... lol! Well I guess, the instructor wanted to see how much and how well I could animate... and also to check timing and spacing and weight etc. etc. So here it is:

Can't wait to get started on the dialog piece!! wooohoooo...........

More class work

Heres some more of "Clothed Figure Drawing" class work. Our assignment was to draw diaper folds. The model was wearing a really long skirt, in fact the skirt (as well as the shirt) was too big for her. But the folds came out really well and it was fun drawing them!

This is a self-portrait assignment from the chiaroscuro class. Have to figure out what is wrong.. have a feeling that I've drawn the hair too big. Well this is still the in-progress version.

The latest Demo

This latest animation reel of mine was put together in August 2009. I do think the drawings in the end are slightly silly... :P

My First Demo Reel

Woohoooo! I finally found my first demo reel.

Complied this in 2006...
