So this year we have a semester long animation called an Action Analysis Assignment where we create a character to perform an action, lol duh. PLUS, we fully animate, colour and all, 5 seconds of this 30 second short in the hopes of teaching us how it works in the industry. Its a lot more work than it sounds, and a lot less time consuming than it should be, but its been fun so far.
So far I've just done, what is called, Key Frames, and going to smooth it out soon. Then detail then colour, etc. My action is a jump and grab, where a kid monk runs up a tree and...you know what just watch the video lol. Enjoy and later days.
