Been working on my character animation 2 face. This is the rough cut i suppose. I started by blocking in the head motion, adding eye movement and blinking to get some of the rhythm down. then I blocked in the opening and closing of the mouth, then wide and tight. started adding some expression and visemes to round it out. then got the eyebrows in a little. a lot more to do to make sure the timing and speed is deliberate. and i think i need to tweak things and add a lot of subtle things but i think this is all the big movements i want. audio is also pretty quiet so i’ll have to fix that somehow.
for character animation 2 this term the assignment is to create a 30 second animation focusing on the face and lip synching. this is my character for that, i hope to get him fully modeled and rigged including the parts that won’t be shown in this assignment so i will have a character of my own to animate so i won’t have to use some downloaded character. for the lip synch track i’m going to use this clip from ferris bueller’s day off.

Here is my quick drawing of Scott the horrible intern for my professional practice class. i forget what the assignment was already. we had metaphors for items? practicing the creative process i think. he reminds me of that one kinda dumb cop on Psych that gets picked on but is always super nice to Shawn.
