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.
