Dialogue, part 2

Our latest assignment involved recording ourselves speaking an original five to six second line of dialogue and then animating a character speaking/acting the part with lip sync. I recorded my own dialogue, with deep, heartfelt sincerity I might add. All in all, I feel good about how the motion looks, but once I got to adding the mouths and the detail, I'm afraid the lip sync got lost. I like it, though, even it will just have historical relevance for me later.

Dead Right or Crazy


This is my first dialogue practice. I used a James Stewart line from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939).

Pink Panther Walk/Run


This was another of our recent assignments. We had to make the Pink Panther walk, turn a corner, walk into the distance, turn 270 degrees and then run off screen. Obviously, I did not put as much detail in the animation of the blob monster as the panther was the focus, overall, I felt good about this bit.

Crazy Time Castle

Just a sketch I inked and watercolored from my sketchbook.







Also, I looped the Chihiro walk cycle a few times, so it can be more easily viewed.
