great night last night. I hope you enjoyed the Video by John Nevarez. Here is a link that will give you more information about him.
http://john-nevarez.blogspot.com/ During the video a couple of other names came up that you should take at least 5 min. to look at. You may be surprised by what you find.
Try Maurice Noble, here is a link to a great article about how he crafted his backgrounds to compliment the characters.
Another name that came up was Steven Silver,
Here are a couple of links to blogs that feature animation backgrounds:
For Thursday, collect 12 images from the internet that you might use as inspiration for a background that looks like it would be a good environment for your character to walk through. We will continue working on the walkcycle and your backgrounds on Thursday. Also, if you went to the Monster Draw, please scan and be ready to turn in those drawings by 9pm.
Please upload your Character pages and character line up images to
ACME. They do not need to be inked.
For both 165 & 166 students: I'm setting up a field trip for after spring break, we will be going to the Cartoon Art Museum. I will give you more details on Thursday.
Remember this Thursday we will be have the award ceremony for the James O'Keefe comic contest. Support your fellow classmate Bret Ward, he is one of the winners! and get extra credit for attending.
