An Animation Experiment

An Animation Experiment

Over the last eight months I've been teaching myself Autodesk Maya. I've nearly completed my first animated short using the program, a 1 minute, 20 second film featuring a troll kid climbing a large tree. Learned a lot doing it, and now feel confident enough that I know enough about how Maya's animation tools work that I can experiment a bit. I've always been a big fan of Japanese animation. It has a certain "snap" to it, a certain intensity to the movement that American shows and movies seem to avoid in favor of fluidity.

Bro, I just went through some of your Assassin Assassin comic. It is pretty entertaining. How long would it take for you to complete a page?
Back then I tried to limit myself to 2 hours a page, without much reference, which is why everything is completely off anatomically and perspectively, etc. If I had used reference back then and done sketchbook stuff I would be so much better than I am now. Oh well. :P
