The Ruined Kingdom Blocked & Complete Scene One

Starting Animating

After the test cycles and storyboards were done, I then started to block out my animation.  Whiles doing this I filmed reference footage of my friend to help me animate Lolas movement.

I also used Jungle Book’s Bagheera as reference for some of Saber’s movement and also my own knowledge from studying my friends cat.  Also I used Eadweard Muybridge cat, as reference.

Story Boards

During this process I had to change my initial idea of animating a long chase scene, to a short version.  This took me a while to come up with an idea that would show off as much of my abilities.  Also, keeping to my original concept but just in a smaller time period.  So I thought up a brief introduction to the pilot episode, which hopefully will be easy to understand and give you a feel for what the animation is about.

Lola Run test… Work in Progress

This is an early run cycle for Lola.  Im unsatisfied with how this has turned out so far, but I am tweaking it and hope to have a better version finished soon.  I think the thing that I’m not happy with is that the character feels wooden in movement and I have to work out how I can fix this.

Saber Run Test

This is a run cycle test, for Saber.  I am very pleased with how this has turned out.  I thought I would have problems when attempting the run, but I managed to successfully create a strong run cycle.

Progress…

So to update, I have finished my storyboards and need to produce a animatic so I can work out the timing on my piece.  When I have done this I will post the storyboards and the animatic, and then start animating the final piece.

Second Environment

Finished second environment of Pomryhan City.
