Senior Film!!

I finished my Senior Film!  I am so thankful for everyone who helped me!

It would take many many many paragraphs to describe everything that I learned from making this animation, so I'll just say that it probably would have gotten done at least couple weeks earlier if it hadn't been for all the mistakes I made in the process.  But I'll never make them again, because I know now!

It did use to be called "Just Leave It," but it didn't fit the tone that I was going for. Thanks for watching!

Cat Animation

I made this short animation for in interdisciplinary studio course.  The cat is startled by the bird, make sure you have the volume up when watching!

Here's a very short animation clip from my Senior Film!  It's part of the scene where the squirrel is scurrying up a tree (with a leaf that will be added in soon)

I'm almost done with my maquette of Abey!  It's still a little sketchy at some parts, so I'm working on finishing her up.  Having her in a real space is great so that I know how to draw her from different angles when I draw her in my senior film.  I made her leaf out of copper!

Leaf Color Test

I'm going to be animating and coloring a lot of falling leaves for my senior film, so I thought why not do a quick test to get an idea of how it's going to look?

So to test how I can color my animations in photoshop for my senior project, I've colored my pig walk cycle!

   So I just made a twitter account yesterday… my major reason was actually to follow my science teacher who is very cool.  My twitter name is ZoeMcCartney12 because 12 is my favorite number, and ZoeMcCartney was already taken.  My Science teacher’s username is DrRockGrrl, if you don’t follow me you should still check out her tweets!

Also here's a picture of one of my favorite newest business cards! It features Ellbow (many of them do, the others are of Abey)
