turn & shift

Finished my first AM assignment for class 2 last week. We had a few different options of what to animate that we could choose from, but most of them dealt with doing balance and weight shift in the hips. I went with the 180 turn.

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.

Here's the initial blocking pass for this assignment.

Here's the blocking plus, where I started splining. Will probably stay in stepped mode for blocking plus on my next assignment.

And here's some of the initial planning sketches.

Started working on my next assignment for class 2 as well, walk through heavy wind!
