Practicing what I teach

Our new class location is making a very positive difference in an already positive program here at the Academy, allowing me and our other instructors to work even closer with students and to participate in the creative process through demonstrations.

Here's something I came up with in the Visual Development class earlier this month. The assignment was to commit to a concept and use value rendering through free form sketching as a means of developing the art for the idea. This wasn't as much of a demonstration as it was my way of joining in on what my students were doing.

This next work was a demonstration in the Character Design 1 class last week. The subject being a traditional five pose head rotation. I came up with a design and then attempted to turn the form by drawing on 12 field paper on an animation disk.

The images will appear full size if you click on them.

With smaller groups in sessions dedicated to the subject, we're experiencing greater creative and artistic growth while having a lot of fun. We accept new and returning student enrollment on a monthly basis. If you're looking to develop your fundamental skills through an animation oriented venue, The Animation Academy offers a program that will greatly benefit you. Feel free to contact us if you have questions or would like more information.
