End of the year!

So it's the end of my first year at Ringling and I think things went pretty well. I don't really have too much to say about the year really. I think I improved a lot this year and finally started to do as opposed to just thinking about doing which I've done for a long time now. I'm looking forward to working this summer to really get better at drawing and to really start studying film and story. I feel like I finally started to get to do what I'm really meant to do this year and I"m looking forward to doing more of it next year. This is my final animation project which was using our character in a scene where the character had to jump and show two emotions. In my scene, my character, Ned, is chasing after a butterfly, trying to catch it. He finally does but crushes it in the process and feels bad until he sees another and gets distracted, chasing that one instead. Also, included is a bunch of my figure drawings which basically amounts to my end of the year portfolio. Thats all for now. Hopefully I'll have some more frequent updates with sketches and other work throughout the summer as I try to keep myself busy.

Sorry its kinda light. The quality of the cameras it was shot with wasn't the greatest in the world.

Just so you know, if you don't someday make a movie with Ned I might cry. I'm kind of in love with him.

That came out so good. I love it when his head just pops out and the acting and runs are so funny. The butterfly looks more like a moth since it's movements are faster and more erratic and some of ned's timing in the middle seems a bit rushed, like he could use just a split second more to think/collect himself/transition. But yeah, nice. Those are some sweet gestures too.

Hey! Your animations are .. amazing, I really enjoyed your Ned character! The overlap and drag is so well done. :) I can't wait to see your stuff next year.

Mister Campbell,
These animations are quite good and do certainly show promising signs. However, you should get back to work and update this blog more.
