Too Draw to Think

I'm an animator/illustrator working at Make llc. in Minneapolis. Not a lot to say for myself other than the fact that all I like to do is draw and animate!

A collection of 60 second drawings I did to get warmed up today.

A Viking guy! A friend is animating one so I was inspired to do a quick drawing of my own.

Decided to do a Cup O’ Doodle. It’s a lot of fun! I used a slightly older shape. For anyone who isn’t familiar with the blog:http://cupodoodle.blogspot.com/

Since I have never tried animating horses with riders before, i decided to do a study so I can work out how I’m going to approach some shots in the actual film. Got a lot to learn but this taught me a whole bunch. Horses are difficult.

Since most of the animation is obscured from the camera in the actual video, I figured I’d post the full thing here. :)Watch the animated short here:https://vimeo.com/76556779

One of the challenges I’m going to face with my film is animating horses. Never done it before so I’m studying! Thank God for ol’ Richy Williams’ helpful animation guides and youtube’s generous horse footage.

Anny Vigil the Vigilante →

I’ve been posting some things about a short film I’m working on but I haven’t really put out anything substantial. So, despite my paranoia, I’m deciding to upload my proof-of-concept.

I did this as a way of experimenting with after effects, animating the characters, practicing backgrounds and camera moves, and working out what effects will look like. I guess I’ll just see what happens.
