Um, WOW! I am officially envious of you! Great work and an impressive first post!

Looks good, but shouldn’t the legs flex forward a bit at the ankle as the character squats? The way you have him going shifts the center of balance backwards.

It is a bit foreshorten so the knee is slightly enlarged as it move towards the screen. I should enlarge and bend the knees more in the future as its a stronger pose when I think about it. Thanks for the input. :slight_smile:

This still needs works. The hair needs flexibility, some more frames here and there, and the face needs works. I still need to add the roses.

Reaction Test

Reaction Test

This looks great. I’m continually impressed by your work. I’d love to see what happens to the roses when she drops them. Keep it up!


#10

Still need some more frames in some areas and the face isnt done. This is a follow up to the “Reaction Test” after this character was blown up by a rocket. If I do another animation based on this story, I will need to redesign this character because his hair is insanely hard to control.

#11

Some things still need to be added such as the dress, hair, and grenade pin. This is really hard to do because of the foreshortening. Three more scenes to go…

Well that’s cool, animation right there in the making! What else do you do, have you made any shorts yet?


#13

Thanks. I have made 2 other shorts but it looks really bad. These rough clips are meant to be combined into one 2-3 minute movie and I am hoping when its done, its good enough for portfolio material.


#14

Here my latest animation rough clip.
I still need more in-betweens in the explosion but I thought it turned out well. One more scene to go

#15

Need to work on my smoke but I dont see its worth testing much. This is the last scene for my WIP movie and now I need to compile all my rough clips to see if it looks good.

This is a redo of Rose Swing Test shown here http://i.imgur.com/yGI2X.gif.
While I was compiling all my clips, the original did not provide me the effect I wanted so I redid it. The face isnt done and the rose still needs some work.

Much, much better, Khan! I especially love the zoom in to then out from the face.

thanks :slight_smile:

A redo of Rocket Aim Test found here http://i.imgur.com/WBdLI.gif or here for full view http://khanhcpham.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d520svu. The original has been bugging me because it felt too stiff, too much movement, and arkward. I decided to make it simplier by doing only two movements. I still need to fix the face and give some movement to the hair. The blast still needs work but I am compiling the all the clips to see how the whole film would appear first. Here is the 2nd version here http://i.imgur.com/7Rbf4.gif and the full view is on this link http://khanhcpham.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d5l5efd.

My previous punch test needed ton of frames shown here http://i.imgur.com/HnEig.gif or full view here http://khanhcpham.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d4xxfbo so I thought this is worth posting. Its a slow motion punch in the face. Once I add sound, the slow motion would make more sense.
