Kim possible

right, so i started second year a few weeks ago and got thrown into principles. we had to do a sneak cycle and a side step using the character kim possible. We also had to keep the animation similar to the characters style.. like no looney toons like movements or anything. well here are some prelim sketches of the character first of all:

here are some early thumbnails of the keys in the sneak
and.. here are just some rough sketches to get used to kim

here are the sneak and side step animations, they were graded the other day and i did well. im well aware that the settle in the side step and her face are both off model and dodgey, but otherwise she's reasonably on model and the animation is there.

oh, and yes i know part of my hands is in one of the sneak frames.. who cares. pencil test :-P

side step


if for some reason its not clear enough just say and i can link to a bigger one or email it. thanks to anyone who reads my blog/post, as always comments are much appreciated and if ye want any information leave a comment or email and i'll respond. i don't post often but i'm on often
hello, its been a while since my last post but oh well. erm here's a video of just playing with mala (plasticine), its not great, and theres no effort in it, but it was to test a new camera i got, and just play with mala, ah well. also the kirby stuff probably wont surface for a good while

i made this few weeks before the kirby post btw, from this point on i'll be posting second year stuff. hopefully it'll show improvement
