Needs to Loop

I just realized that the animation doesn't loop and I don't have Quick Time PRO (which cuts and pastes frames). I'll go to school to cut and paste it about 5 times so it'll be able to cycle and repost it. But for now... umm just keep clicking the Play button! Hehehe :P

Finally some animation!

So Art 114 (Animation) started today. It was a really fun first day taking Prof. David Chai again it brought back Art 28 memories back; being reunited with my fellow 28 peers and friends combined is super cool.

So the first assignment is a walk cycle: no rules, whatever you want to do test. I came up with a Satyr skipping while playing the pan-pipes. I got a super-rough pass in so far.

There's lots to work on: He falls too slow and somethings really iffy with the feet when landing... hmm... Well once I get the motion in right I'll start adding more stuff... his ears, cape, pan-pipes etc.

Stay tuned for more animation updating! :)

Super-Long "Catch-Up" Post!

Hello! It's been a while since I posted... in fact I haven't posted a single thing since school ended! Oh my! Well I finally scanned a bunch of pages from my sketchbook to post them... something I've been putting off all this time!
There's a lot more I need to scan especially some animal sketches but my Photoshop is crapping out and is starting to get annoying. So I will post them when I can!
These are not necessarily in chronological order, but I'll try to put them together by the day at least and try to put the most recent first.


Jan, Chris M., Andrea, Chris P., Priscilla, and I went to the Valley Fair food court to sketch.


Chris P. told me and my friends about Sketch Crawl so Chris P., Andrea, Januel, and I went to it on Sat. It was really fun and I can't wait for the next one! Met a lot of new people and just seeing everyone sketch was very exciting!












1 hour master study of a John Singer Sargent painting.


Paul N., Jake, Priscilla, Carly-Ann, Ottman, Tuan, Miles, and gosh who else was there?? lol, I went to SF to sketch! I had so much fun :).






1 hour master study of a NC Wyeth painting.






This was one of my presents to Januel on Christmas. :) The rest was PaperDreams book, Harry Potter 5 dvd, and a Harry Potter beanie. I got my very cute and thoughtful presents from Jan as well! What a sweetie.. hehe..

Jan, Andrea, and I went to the Cocola Cafe in Santana Row one day to sketch...


These chairs are from Cocola Cafe as well, but I sketched this in SF.
