Cleaned up a linetest from my animation class. In the task we had to make a floursack show three emotions . Wanted it to look cleaner then just linetest if it should be good enough for showreel material.
Wow fantastic work I'm going to major in 2D animation starting next year so I'm glad I found this animation to learn from. also for some reason I was listening to this song watching this and it felt fitting XD [link]
Very nice and fluid animation you got there! To me, when it comes to animation, I'am a total sucker at it unless the characters are sprite sized (anything less than 256x256/128x128 pixels) and its nowhere as fluid as yours.
hmm... not actually no, each school has different way of doing things. in fact the most commen way is that students does a movie for each of their 3 school years. Our classes was different though, we had 3-5 exercises for each year. In our final semester we finally got our first movie project
hmm... i think the most useful for preparing for college is art classes. there you will draw a lot and even study useful things like anatomy, perspective etc. useful things for your college portfolio (i think most colleges for animation today requiers a portfolio of your greatest works for getting in...)
I did also take a one year study program for animation for getting into the basics first.
I noticed there's a lot of these flour sack videos when art students have animation projects. I always find them very amusing to watch! And this is definitely one of the best.
It's very difficult to have something with a rather simple body and no face be expressive like that. You did a great job here! One can see exactly what's going on even though there's no words spoken. The sack's determination is very cute, and the way he's so proud of himself after this jump made me smile.
