Computer Animation 3: Pace Animation

Story: Norman is in the forest, walking slowly and cautiously afraid of what may pop up. Eventually something does pop up, as a second Norman rig appears from behind a well and scares Norman, resulting in him running away. I feel like I did the walk in exceptionally well, however I messed up a little with the change of pace. I think I did the pretty well, also.

Class Critique:

-Weird movement with shoulder and neck

-Nice Setting

-Good music

-Body twitches when running

-Legs are a bit jittery when running away

-A little slow in movement

-Nice story, slow movements

-Should exaggerate face more

-Sprint at the end could use refinement

-Norman turns away too quickly

-Long pause before animation starts

-Good texture and angle

-Nice movement but should have facial expression set to scared to help with context


About schinnery1996

My name is Shanelle Chinnery and I study Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State College. It’s my third year and the last time this bio was updated was on my very first day of college. I had ended off my previous bio with my desire to grow throughout my years here in Alfred State and with my senior year on the horizon, I’m glad to say I’ve definitely grown since that day. With the variety of classes and mediums I’ve experienced during these three years, I’ve learned what grasps my attention and what strays it away. I came into college with an unclear direction of what I wanted to do in my field and to be quite honest, I’m still not sure what direction I’m going in, but I have a better idea. I enjoy the storytelling aspect of animation, but then again I also enjoy animating in 3D and would love to explore the possibility of voice acting. While I’m uncertain about the exact route of my future, I still take great pride in the how much I’ve changed, art wise. I’ve gained knowledge and experience in endless number of programs I never thought I’d be able to work around, I’ve grown accustomed to digital art rather than traditional pencil to paper art, and most importantly, I’m just a better artist in general. I could say that is my favorite achievement and I can’t wait to see what my future holds in this field.
