One of the more notable personalities involved with The Animation Academy is a fellow by the name of Chance Raspberry. Yes, that is indeed his real name and here's a sample of his work. A character he created and designed at the beginning of his studies with us. The artwork below also features some expression models along with his main character for the concept he was developing in Character Design I. Nice line quality, bold, simple yet innovative design, good draftsmanship.
Chance has been with the Academy for several years. He started as a student then enrolled in a degree program at California State University in Northridge (CSUN). The Academy enjoys an excellent relationship with the students at CSUN's animation program and many of them supplement their studies by taking classes at the Academy. Chance's talent, enthusiasm for sharing his art and skills, and his long standing involvement with our school eventually developed into a situation as an assistant instructor with our Saturday Teen Program.
Chance will be graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Animation from CSUN in the next few weeks. He credits his experience with the Academy for making a big difference in his ability to handle the demands of a university arts program.
He also maintains a blog of his own which you can visit by following this link:
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, Chance! Best wishes for your future success.
