[wip][nude] Misc topdown animations

on: November 01, 2015, 12:32:44 pm
I just recently dug these out of an old folder and has begun working on them again. I figured I'd post them here and see what happens.

[moving]

This one I just repolished. A lot. (the running part)

[roll]

This one needs a lot of work I know.

[punch]

This one has a bit of shading to enhance depth feel. It's rather dusty. I plan to color them differently.

[decapitation]

This one I like.


,also hi!

Hello! When you run do you wag your head side to side?

Act out each of these actions for a while, and consider your limbs as you go through them. Then take some paper and draw out your keyframes while going back into these actions and freezing on what you feel to be the extremes of each pose. Really internalize the movement. I even do this when I'm animating a robot/non human. Feel the forces.

The effort is certainly present, but I feel there's a bit much of working from the previous frame going on. With a bit of planning these could come a long way.

That would look silly now wouldn't it? So no I don't wag my head sideways.

I tried and do some more consideration on how to do these movements. Some are hard to do. Like decapitating myself or rolling across my apartment floor but I get what you mean. I might try this "pen and paper" you speak off. But for now I just did some more work on it. Felt it could use more frames..



I feel like starting a female character as well.

[faint]

This is what I've got so far.
