Happy baby elephant




This is my last animation of this year course. I looked at some video references and sometimes baby elephants are just crazy and hilarious!
Here are some character designs








Comments and critiques are welcome! Thank you

Jump!


I have finally finished my jump animation exercise! The final work is shorter than was supposed to be for time reasons, but I have a rough basic animation of the full thing.

So, this is the complete version:

This is the first one with the key frames (the original version):

I started trying to do the anticipation with my real character that unluckily I couldn't use in the final version: there was too much 'follow through' for the time I had.

My character was a young boy, probably already teenager, with baggy cloths.

Trying layouts

Here some layouts from the last few months: another uni work. 
I have never done layouts before because I used to draw more the human figure, but I quite enjoyed drawing them. In the beginning I found it hard and boring, but soon it became easier. I tried to change media and to colour them in Photoshop and it was interesting. Maybe I found my new aim! 
Uni is getting really hard especially because this is the last month (already!!!). In the end of it I will show you why I am so busy... and I hope to find more free time to do my personal works. It is something that I really miss doing!

These are copies from real life, the majority of and from my room and house in England.
