Time flies when you're having fun...Week 8 already!....Whoa & Yikes!!!

Hey Everyone!

This is going to be another quick post due to, trying to stay on schedule with my current assignment. Its going really well, and I just want to make it as shiny and polished as I possibly can by the time this class ends next month.

My lecture this week was titled "Advanced Entertainment" and was taught by an animator by the name of Doug Sweetland. He's has animated on every feature film from Pixar, starting with Toy Story back in 1995. Absolutely awesome, and very well known animator who is full of knowledge.

My current assignment is beginning to really take shape and I am excited about it. So excited I have trouble falling asleep at night because I am just thinking about the movements and arcs. But instead of me rambling on here, how about I just show you my far. =)

I also did another face pose study last week, but the guy in the picture is not just some random face I pulled off the internet, like I have done in the past. He is a talented animator by the name of Shawn Kelly, and is one of the three co-founders of Animation Mentor. He was cool with letting me use his picture for my assignment. Too prove my "talented" comment above: Shawn just recently was in a small group of four people who won a VES award for "Best Single Visual Effect of the Year!" It was on the Transformers movie, but more specifically the desert highway sequence where the robot is basically skating down the highway around the cars at crazy speeds. If you've seen the movie, you'll remember it. If you haven't seen the're missing out. =)

So here it is! Click it to see it bigger. =)

Alright...I hear my assignment calling my name, so I should get back to business here. =)

Once again, thank you for stopping by!
