This one is a quick animation I did, trying to practice the straight ahead method of animating something. I also wanted to make some wider movements than just walks or turn arounds.
The planning on this one was also quick, but useful, here is what I did before animating:
I came up with the idea of a flour sack jumping by trying out some wierd or fun possitions for it.
I then planned the overall actions it was going to perform, craeting what I guess is called a layout.
Here I figured out how the sack was hanging from the rope, its timing and spacing. I payed special attention on the way forces moved through the body and to the rope. A flour sack is intended to be alive, giving it the possibility to create movement, or "create" forces. Its not just a stiff haning object.
And here is the video:
And some illustration work.
I just finished my little devil pic. Decided it was too large, so I croped it.
