Johanna Gan - Exercise 10

Second to last assignment in Level 1!  This didn't take as long as I thought it would. My main priority was to get it done rather than take my time.

Johanna Gan - Exercise 9

I've fallen behind on the schedule, so my priority is to really just bust these out fast and get them done!

This flour sack exercise I thought I'd test my drawing in perspective skills (ack!) and by the last few drawings I got a little sloppy, but my priority was to get it done.  I think it worked out though. :)

Johanna Gan - Exercise 8

Alas, after sitting on this for over a week, I finally pushed through and got it done.  So, it's kinda like a big butted flour sack, but still... the wave maybe could move faster, but i think it's okay.
I included the rough because vimeo didn't think my file was big enough.  Enjoy!

Ian Chaffardet - Exercise 7

It has been really hard to keep up with the 51 exercises, working on my short film and work, this is driving me crazy but I'm going to keep doing the exercises!

Anna Czoski - Exercise 5

The hands could use more work. However in an effort to use these exercises in the Cult of Done spirit, I will move on for now.

Johanna Gan - Exercise 7

I'm not sure if it's actually showing a "character thinking" but... here's what I have for exercise 7. Hopefully, I can catch up this week, but just to note we're more than 1/2 through Level 1!!!

Once again, you'll see the progression.  Originally, I was going for a Peanuts angle which you can see in the initial phase (the composition/style), but then saw a video where Aaron Blaise was drawing a character in the same pose that I was going for so I modified it thinking it'll help me in the long run.  Even the blog post that I saw it on was helpful in planning out the shot.

There are some things I see that stand out and could use a little more work, but I feel I've learned a lot from this exercise and I'm ready to move on to #8.

Johanna Gan - Exercise 6

Eye Blink!

In the video, I spaced it out in different sections indicating the different timing. The difference is the timing between the blinks with the examples going from 12f, 8f, 4f, so you'll see it go by faster. Then I put them all together at the end. The opening stare before the first blink stays the same, about 12f, so you can see it's a bit even for the first example.

I have issues with the right eye (the one on the left side)  particularly the curve of its movement but I was a bit tired and didn't want to fiddle with it anymore. :)
