Push Pull Natural - Jimmy Grand

I learned quite a bit from this project, like about how one way of conveying weight is letting things slowly slide, or not letting things budge at all, or the importance of shoulder strain which I feel I could of done more on, and choosing what would lead and follow to best describe the pain of the weight. It was a real back and fourth project the whole way, but in the end I really feel like I took some big steps in my modeling, and learned a lot of not-to-do's in blendshapes and weighting/rigging.

In a Jam - Animatic

Great experience, wish i had more time to milk the sincere moments (had to be <1m).
I'm glad i finally did a serious piece over a comedy, It was really difficult and I had an epiphany moment about the little gestures that connect between characters and let you empathize with them (aka the rubbing the door does).

This was our "Valueables" project for Drawing For Animators, It was great learning and observing how to use value to control the viewers attention, but more importantly where to take it away to control interest.

Captain Fantastic - Animatic

Here is an Animatic of mine I did this year,
I never thought of posting these till two people told me they liked it, so here it is!
It was cool seeing how to make every shot flow and try to connect seamlessly, while trying to make an understandable and entertaining story.
