2010 in Review!

So! This year was my 'animation curriculum' under-taking. Last Dec I made a 12 month animation schedule, to do different animations every month. At first the focus was to be exclusively on animation, and not pay so much attention to camera work or anything else, but around the 4th month I started to stray, and in August I decided I wanted to model 3 characters for that piece - so needless to say, I ended up abandoning the rest of the curriculum and working on that one. :) I got it to a reasonable stopping point just in time.

In the end, I'm happy with what I made! In the next month or so I will be going back into my favorites from the last year and polishing them up.

Here are my animations from this year!:

Jan: Ball Bounce Month

Feb: Jumping!

March: Walk Cycles

April: Character Walk

May: Run & Sneak

June: Obstacle Course

July: Takedown

August - December: Weapon/J-Pop Girls

J Pop Girls

Calling it done for right now!! Made it just in time. :)


Fanart Calendar

Now that I have a real website, I can post more fun stuff on my blog! Here's my progress on the fanart calendar I've been making for 2011! (I'm really picky about wall calendars, and so this year I decided to just make my own)

Game Journal Launched!

New Website!

I finally got around to making myself a new website. You can find it here:


Girls, Inc. Presentation

A friend from work and I are giving a presentation next Tues at the Albany Girls, Inc Summit! I just drew these images as part of our exercise, which will involve creating a level from the pieces below, coming up with moves to help the characters (a rabbit and a turtle) navigate them, and balancing the speed of the characters. I'm looking forward to it - we're teaching the girls about how we use STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) as part of our jobs in the video game industry.

My friend and I split the work in half - these images are the level pieces which favor the rabbit, as well as a couple of the neutral pieces.
