Ok here we are at week 5 already... wow. Well this past week has probably been one of the hardest weeks I've ever had at Animation Mentor. Not just because of the animation, but last weekend my father went into the hospital and laid in ICU in critical condition almost all week. My family and I were preparing for the worst, but later in the week he finally pulled out of it and got off life support. He's now awake and doing a lot better but still recovering some. I just want to thank everyone who helped me through this and was just there for me when I needed it.
This past week we had to take our plan for our next shot and "block" it out. So here is my blocked form of my stepping in gum assignment. My mentor has already made notes on it and I will be toning back some of the posing in this shot. I wanted to push the posing as much as I could so my animation would feel more dynamic. I figured he would want me to push it back in the long run anyway. :)
