Kevin Poythress turns it on

Character rotations are a very important aspect of the character design process. Rotating characters for model purposes is an essential skill for anyone aspiring to master the art.

Kevin Poythress has been featured before on the Academy's blog on June 12 and August 11 of last year. This presentation was a class assignment that he recently completed. Kevin's 5 pose rotation in blue pencil was cleaned up in black line and then digitally colored. Click on the image for a better view.

Afterwards, Kevin took the next step and created an animated sequence featuring his completed rotation. If you want to see the accuracy of a rotation, the best way to view it is through animation. It's evident that Kevin did a fine job.

Kevin Poythress is one of many students at the Academy who develop strong basic skills at a professional level. I'm happy to be able to feature his work as he contributes to the legacy of our school.
