Of Flour Sacks and Character Designs


The past three weeks of my life have been consumed by this fat, adorable little flour sack, who comes in my dreams because I have been looking at him for so long. We had to work on two exercises, a simple flour sack jump and a slightly more complicated story which was to be about 15 seconds long. Presenting "Mr. Flour Sack on Valentine's Day":

We recently completed this project for 3D design, modeling a clay sculpture from a live model. 


Now comes the awesomely fun part of 3D. For the next two months we're going to be working on an original character design: designing the character, costume, staging, set design, the works. I am BEYOND excited for this.
This is the character I came up with (which needs so much more development):







The pig itself was inspired by the song 'Pigs (Three Different Ones)' by Pink Floyd, from their album Animals. Goosebumps every time I listen to it.

Spring Semester!

This semester at Ringling is ridiculously amazing, tear-inducing and rewarding. Animating on Ringling's marvelous Disney desks make you feel so special and fancy! So here's some work from this semester:

Cannot tell you how many wiggly jello videos I watched for that. 

Aaand some stuff from 3D Design:




I absolutely LOVE clay. Even though the oil clay tore most of my skin, it was super fun to work with.
