FOUNDATIONS II

During this module you'll begin to work with character models. We'll put an emphasis on developing strong gesturing skills while we give the character models emotion through strong gestures. There two types of Animation; Action and Acting. here we'll study Action. Cycles are probably the hardest things to do right. So we'll also put a lot of time and energy into creating strong, believable cycled animations. Now let's get to work!
