Sit/Stand Character

WOOOO! A week and a half left to go!
I can't wait for winter break! There are many things I'm excited for such as my dad's delicious Chinese food, going out with friends, sleep, improve my drawing/painting skills, my dad's delicious Chinese food, sleep, etc. The thing I'm not looking forward to though, is the Minnesotan winter. I've gotten so used to Florida that 75 degrees seem a little chilly (honestly! It doesn't feel 75!) so I can imagine how painful 30 degrees will be. And lets not mention wind chills, arrgggh!

Meanwhile there's plenty of project to be done. Here's some pre-pro stuff for my next semester's sit/stand project. We basically have to animate a character sitting down with one emotion and getting up with another emotion. My story is about a guy expecting a baby. He sits down exhausted from the anxiety then storms off excitedly when he hears his baby's first cry.

Birds and Guests

Thought it's time for another post so here are some sketches from the jungle garden and a couple of robots/spacemen.

Last night was the first night in many weeks when I felt like I am caught up with everything and can do some drawings not for class. But surprise surprise, today I realized that I should have spent that time on revising our animatic. Oh well, we all need some personal drawing time to get out of the lab once in a while.
