Whether you're working in 2D or 3D, character rotations are an important part of the production process in animation. Character design rotations drawn by hand are often used as templates for digitally modeling a character in 3D once the design has been approved. This example was created by Kevin Poythress during the last session of the Academy's adult program. The image will appear bigger if you click on it.
Kevin recently relocated to the Burbank area from Modesto, California to study at The Animation Academy. He got off to a good start and has been steadily improving in Character Design I, meeting the challenges presented by the class. This particular character rotation of his was developed with 3D modeling in mind.
