Practicing the Puppet Tool...

To improve my 2D animation skills I've taken to teaching myself the Puppet Tool in After Effects. Here's my first attempt:

He's a Loomer, a character that I'm working on and I thought he'd be a good first try. After getting a bit more confident I took an old character to work with:

A familiar face from a previous summer project, he's much more successfully animated than my first one. Next one should be a good'un :)

What I've Been Up To...

A few bits and bobs!

A Natty phone buddy, as requested by Jon. She came out okay, I'll get a few more pictures soon.

The beginning of the previous Natty and a sneak peak of my Halloween project!

The next plushie dino-dog of sorts! The Puggasaur!

More updates as I remember! :)

Dachsusaurus Lives!...

He's finally all painted and alive!

He stands quite nicely but I definitely learnt a lot about making a better armature for the next one.

A bit of a close up. I tried to add a little extra texture with the paint, just to make sure he wasn't so flat colour-wise.

He's pretty darn cute if I do say so myself! Now back onto my Halloween project! :)
