15 Apr Animation 101
In March of 2016 we, my class and me, had a Animation Workshop of two weeks. The first week we learned the animation principles from animation veteran In-Ah Roediger. We started with bounce ball animations, focussing on timing and realism and ended with a cartoonish walk cycle.
The Second week we took it a little further. Sem Assink Came to teach us the basics of character animation. We again started with a simple walk cycle and the principles of balance and the movements of the human body and ended with a free animation assignment. I created a backflip that ended in a roll. If you scroll down you can see a simple playblast of my final animation.
