Cap'n Turnaround

I'm working on finishing up the turnaround for The Cap'n, for class and because my friend Allison
is looking into making 3D models of other people's characters, and asked if she could make a model of him

so here he is so far, still haven't made any color choices though:

Also, watch him spin!

Tyler's Animation Alphabet: A

Here's a new project I'm starting: my personal Animation Alphabet.

Mainly it's because I want to have something weekly that I can post that isn't school or life related, and just lets me be a geek for a little while. So I've made a list of cartoons/movies/videogames that correspond to the alphabet, and I'll be posting a weekly illustration for each letter. This isn't meant to be comprehensive, just a personal list, and I encourage others to do it too, just as a fun little distraction

Here' the first entry, A:

The Animaniacs!

From here on out it'll probably be a Saturday thing.

Layout & Timing: Draft 4 w/ Sound and some Rough Animation!

The sound appears to be desynched in the playback...Thanks, Youtube.

Sketches: Tom and Jerry Expressions

Just some facial expression practice from a Tom and Jerry cartoon

also, my new profile picture, which is pretty accurate to how busy I feel lately. You wouldn't know it by looking at the amount of posts on here, though.

Sketches: King of the Pirates

Cause my friend Jess said so...

Layout & Timing: Draft 3

This is closer to the final version of this storyboard/animatic before diving into the layout process. This is also the story in it's entirety, finally. I still need to rework some things for clarity, and add sound effects, plus various other timing tweeks and what-have-you. But I'm getting happier with it, and closer to actually making something of it.

Still doesn't have a title, though...

Sketches: Apex Predator

I was workin on this sketch intermittently today, and wanted to post some of my progression throughout

It's based off of the film "Chronicle", which I saw and quite enjoyed. It's one of the movie's protagonists and the eventual villain of the movie, Andrew Detmer. Not really much of a spoiler, considering the trailer spells it out pretty clearly.

Very "Akira" like, which I dug.

It's still a work in progress, the burning/scarring/blood still needs work, explaining why he kinda looks like Zuko from Avatar currently.

Layout & Timing: Draft 2

A Second pass at the Buccaneer storyboard, still a work in progress

Animation: Acting Assignment rough

The first pass at an animation assignment, all about visual acting and mood changes,

I wanted to make it really cartoony, and also wanted to try out some smears, because I'd never used them before, so it was quite the fun expiriment.

I want to finish this up and possibly color it, time permitting
