This is what animation students do sometimes

Ridiculous ness This is what happens when you're in class talking about cutting on action when scrubbing a movie clip back and forth. It's almost a guarantee that one of your students will take that little joke into and turn it into a .GIF! You can't stop an animator from their antics! You gotta nurture the eccentric! Denzel twerkin and smiling. There you go!

Weekly Animation Challenge

After a bit of frustration this week, decided to take a break from some of the stuff I'm working on to do this cool little Weekly animation challenge, this is two days worth of work. Learning all the time!

11 Seond club animation posted!

Dang it! Placed 51st. Almost made the top 50. I'm going to keep at it periodically to break that top 30, then top 10. Just to say I did. Really though, it's a great way of getting an idea of how your animation is received by people all over the world potentially. Helps you to get a better understanding of whether or not your idea or technique is communicating well.

Here it is in it's submitted state!

The end of the road

I'm determined to finish this 11 second club entry. Even if it doesn't rank high, I've learn some significant things. Finally starting to get a better sense for using held layers! Also some workflow stuff as well. Was down and out for a few days with a jacked wisdom tooth that still needs to be yanked in about a week, so I'm suffering right now so I can finish this.

11 Second club progress

Along with all the work I have to get done, I've decided to put myself through the pain of rejection once again! Nothing better than competition to drive the desire to get better. There are other rough poses, but since they are blue line, and I'm testing out my inking, capture workflow, I've only got the ink drawings that I've cleaned up thus far. I"m making a specific effort to finish and submit this.
