(This is the Homework for Tuesday, November 3, if you want to get a head start on it, go ahead. We will begin this on Thursday November 5.)
Homework reading, in the Richard Williams text book, read pg. 108-123 and pay particular attention to the diagram in the center of pg. 114 This will prepare you for the walk cycle.
1. In your sketchbook, work on creating a character for the walk cycle. Be prepared to show me 4-6 different variations of the character that will represent you in the walk animation. I will be looking for a simple character design, use animation pencils and no ink. Must be humanoid and look like you, try to avoid oversized capes and long tails.
2. Create a character page on one sheet of paper in the same way that the sack character page was designed. Use animation pencils only, no ink. See example below for the body positions.
(front, 3/4 front, profile, 3/4 back, back)
On Thursday we will look at the pencil versions of your character pages. If they look good you can ink them. After inking, scan and create a character spin, like you with the sack project.
