AM Class 2- Week 4 Assignment

Finally to the point of final polish. I spent a long time on my shot and I think it paid off. Minor notes from my mentor, I'm a very happy man this week. We also had to choose our shot for the next month. We work with Stewie (He has no arms so we can focus on the shoulders and head). My idea is that he is walking along happily by a home haunters graveyard then a grave popper pops up and scares Stewie. He jumps back and falls down.

AM Class 2- Week 2 Assignment

This week we blocked out our shot. Just the key poses and breakdowns.

AM Class 2- Week 1 Assignment

Class 2 has began!  My new mentor Martin Hopkins works at Dreamworks Animation.  He has been a mentor at AnimationMentor for six years.  The class is intro to Psychology of Body Mechanics.  My first week we had to shoot video reference for the shot we picked. I decided to have Ballie walking up a ton of stairs.  He walks up three stairs stumbles, leans against the wall and slides down.
