Everyday People...

Hey! These are some sketches and inks I did for Animation Mentor, I'm trying to do alot of my posing assignments tradionally aswell. These started with a coffee shop gestures, and then inked in photoshop. Sorry about the lack of 11 second club updates, it's currently shelved as work and mentor seem to be taking over.
Thanks for all the previous comments, everything helps!
Stay tooned for a progress reel of my first term at Animation Mentor.

November 11 Second Club- Character and Planning

I've taken some great suggestions from you guys, and I've tried to incorporate them into my character and thumbnails. If you can deciefer what's going on in my story poses, I would love some feedback...also on the overall design. I've kind of decided to make this into a 2 month project, because of a busy schedual...I don't want to find myself rushing it. But I will definately make sure to get a finished rough version into the competition. I tried to force myself to plan more than usual, when I was at "The Princess and the Frog" presentation by Eric Goldberg he told the audience that 85% of his time on a scene goes into planning...that blew my mind.
I took it from 1% to maybe steps.
All your thoughts and comments help alot

November 11 Second Club- Character concepts

Hey All- I'm going to attempt the November 11 second club, I will be posting my progress every week or get feedback from you guys (I find I was missing constant feedback on the last one I did) So hopefully you will see some blocking stages, keys, breakdowns....and maybe even a finished animation by the end of the month. For now, this is Hugo ( based off my favourite "Lost" character)- it was honestly really tough to design a fat caterpillar that doesn't resemble "A Bugs Life" design. Hopefully he looks different enough...
I would love feedback that I can incorporate into my studies and keys next week. Thanks!
