She’s Alive!

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook

And now she just needs someone to talk to. You’d think I’d have started on character #2 by now, but hey, I was having fun getting the Poehler stand-in just about right. Every time something felt a little stiff, I referred to my trusty Animator’s Survival Kit and found ways to make her more dynamic. Not saying I got everything right, but I’m really happy with the way it evolved.

4 days left, so I’ll start the exasperated husband just in the nick of time. Luckily he won’t also be moving like a hummingbird on crack. He’s onscreen for three more seconds than she is, so it’ll be interesting to see how the time spent animating compares.

    Impressive …. her movements flow nicely.At the beginning one hand is much larger than the other. Is that suppose to be that way?

    Are you talking about the frame that’s up when you first load the page? That’s just a random frame that the Posterous video player picked to show when the video is stopped. It’s from about 4 seconds in when she swings her arm forward. Kind of like the frame from my previous post; it’s supposed to go by in a nanosecond.
