Animation Beginnings

So I have been neglecting this blog lately, but I have a good reason for it! I just started my Masters program for 3D animation at the Academy of Art University. It has been keeping me very busy. I have little time to illustrate right now, as I am learning the ins and outs of animation basics. I am only a few weeks into the program, and I have been learning basic animation principles and doing some studies using traditional animation. I promise I will be posting more illustrations and sketches when I manage to squeeze some in between all of my other work.

For now, here are a couple of studies I did recently.

Picking up grocery bags of varying weights:

Stay tuned! Soon I will hopefully start uploading new (and more interesting) things. :)
