A Ninja Story - Concepts

So, since I've had some down time, I've decided to work on some side projects I've been wanting to do. I think I may have mentioned that before. Well, Project numero uno on my plate is a short I have tentatively named: A Ninja Story. This is an idea that came to into mind in college. My friend and I have been wanting to do it for some time now. Hopefully she will be helping with me with some of the work. :) The story is about a ninja who fails at being a ninja. That's all I want to say at this time. ;P

I wanted to share some concepts work I've done for the two main characters: the Ninja and a doberman dog.





On to stage two: the modeling!! This part should be fun... I haven't modeled in over a year. It may take some time but I hope to update soon!

Enjoy!

Animation Tests

I did some animations tests for a potential job a few weeks ago. Sadly, I didn't get this job, but I'm not giving up hope. It's barely been over a month and I know these things take time sometimes. I wanted to share the tests none-the-less. I had to do a walk cycle and a hit reaction. Here they are:

The first one is a random hit reaction:


The second one is a walk cycle:


I'm not opposed to critique from anyone.As long as it is helpful and not hurtful :) Always looking to improve myself!

Enjoy!

The Post-Holiday Life Update

The holidays are over and I am back! So, what have I been up to you ask? Well, I moved from Texas to Washington! That was an exciting trip. Many great, inspiring views along the way. I haven't found a job yet, but still looking. I would like to work on some animation in the mean time to help my real out and keep me from getting dusty. I will be posting some progress animation as I start working on my personal projects. :)

So life for now... job searching (if anyone in the Seattle area is in need of an animator, give me a holler!) and working on some personal animation shots.
