Bart Junior!

Our first 2d animation assignment for the fall semester was to come up with a model sheet of a character we see ourselves animating for the semester. These are the few drawings I did of Bart Junior, who is the railroad track operator in my mine film this year. His design isn't final but this is the look I am going for.

I don't have the entire story figured out yet but the gist is that a batch of miner's lives are highly dependent on Bart, who happens to be an unbelievably careless track operator.

All these drawings are done with black col-erase on letter-sized paper.

Most of these poses are probably not even gonna end up in the final film but they help a lot in figuring out what kind of a character Bart is. I have so much work to do on the story but figuring it out is my favorite part of the process!

Back to school with more adventures ahead!

Hey everyone! I'm finally back to school as a third year character animator at CalArts now. I still can't believe my first two years flew by so quickly. Anyway, I did some sketches for my upcoming film and thought it'd be great to share them here. I'm going for a comedy this year and I can't wait to see how my film will unfold throughout the semester!

These sketches are done with an ink pen on letter sized paper during a Friday guest lecture.
