For most assignments now, we do planning one week, blocking week 2, blocking plus in week 3, and turn in the final in week 4. This lets us get lots of feedback from the mentor through the whole process and really refine the animation.

And here's some of the initial planning sketches.
Started working on my next assignment for class 2 as well, walk through heavy wind!
