surprise!! gotta stop shouting surprise randomly!

demon maquette

Did this as a sort of show and tell for the Animation Camp I teach.

Oh, did I mention this to you guys? It's a one week course, but the program runs for 7 weeks so thats 7 individual groups. It's been my first chance to teach or interact with tweens and man is that age group hyper.

It's all the red bull I think.

But its been a blast. Still a few more weeks to go, and I've been refining my methods as we go. There was no set cirriculum. This was a maquette I built out of clay for them, with a wire frame skeleton. I baked it and painted it for fun.

Basically I was trying to bring the level of clay animation done up a notch. These kids love clay, love to mold it and make monsters and the like, but I thought "Hey, we can spice this up."

Anyway, It's left this way because I want them to be able to see the underlying skeleton of the creature.

self portrait

Self portrait, done by looking into a mirror, not from a photograph. Also some quick studies from life of Jade. The studies of the plains of her face was very poor, and I've decided to focus on portraiture a bit more now.
