Winter Update

It's been a little while since i've updated, so I thought I'd post some of the things i've been working on. When i'm not animating for one of the many films currently in production here at BYU, i'm drawing whatever is fun to me at the moment. 
Sundays are the best kind of days. 
Sketch of Sherlock from Elementary.
I really loved Warm Bodies...

These next ones are some designs of the main character for a personal short film i'm currently storyboarding. I'm still trying to work her design out. 

And here is a sketchbook sketch. I've loved being able to carry around my sketchbook everywhere again and sketch from life.

I'm spending most of my time animating on the traditionally animated film here at school, but the start date for the 3D animated film is fast approaching. Our head animator for the film has us animate bouncing balls of various weights in Maya to get a feel for the program, so here's a bowling ball.
Maya and I are still trying to develop a friendly relationship.
Here's a ping pong ball.

And the blocking for a personal scene i'm working on. On to smoothing it out!

Thanks for checking in!

Film Work

This semester is proving to be super busy. I'm working on two films that are in production right now at BYU, one of which is a 2D film. 
These are some emotions for one of the characters. I wanted to see how far I could push her facial expressions and reactions without breaking her character. 

Here are some more emotions and gestures for her. 

Here are some gestures/expressions for another film in production here at BYU.
In between animating at school, i'm doing a 30 day art challenge. Here are some of those drawings: 

Least Favorite Animal

Favorite Book

Favorite Pokemon

This was testing out the new Frenden brushes I recently purchased. I highly recommend them, they're amazing. 

More to come!
