Well, after four or five years of living the studio/freelancer life, I'm back in school and doing my postgrad in 3D animation currently! Feels like it's time to get some new tools in my inventory, as it were, and I'm looking forward to getting started.

For now though, it's back to the basics. My assignment this week was to demonstrate Frank & Ollie's 12 Basic Principles of Animation in whichever way we feel inclined, and of course because 2D is what I'm most comfortable and feel I'm best at, I decided to do it that way. Unfortunately I didn't set aside enough time this week to finish it to my satisfaction, but in the future I'd like to revisit this thing and make it a whole little short of its own maybe. And my little polar bear guy was fun to draw in any case! Here's some gifs. I did my drawing in Photoshop because as much as I like the ease of working with Flash symbols, I'm not so crazy about them drawing mechanics...
