Tiny Costuming for Stop Motion

This quarter, Dan Mackenzie of Mackmation asked me to make some tiny clothes for his next stop motion project. Here's what I came up with!

Snowman Animation

In my 3d Production class, I've been working on a 15 second animated film. Here are three frames from my animatic. The entire animation will be rendered out (tomorrow by the latest) with Maya and SCAD's Renderfarm, composited with Adobe After Effects, and cut together with Adobe Premiere. I used the opensource Blake rig.

Color Scripting for Characters

During this quarter, I've been trying my hand at developing some different color scripts for senior films that are in production here at SCAD. The characters above belong to Zane Yarbrough and will be used in ThisSideUp^ and Ilona, below, belongs to Tyler Kupferer (Base 14) and are for The Girl and the Fox.

I find playing with variations of color to be extremely relaxing. After hours of creating Maya snow- (using MEL- which means Maya Embedded Language), working out an X-sheet, or animating with the Graph Editor... there's nothing like sitting down and coloring.
