At the end of week 3, my mentor Scott gave me a critique that resulted in me having to add large changes. My critiques were to make the dog more playful and energetic and to make the T-Rex slower. Next week I am planning on playing with the timing a bit between when the dog comes in and when the T-Rex comes in.

School has started! For our first week of school, we had to start planning our first animation of the semester. I chose to do creature animation because I have loved animals my whole life and have always wanted to get better at creature animation.
A dog and T-Rex grew up together in the forest and are friends. They rely on each other for survival and companionship.
In this scene, the T-Rex just ate and the dog and T-Rex are heading back home. The dog is really excited because the T-Rex saved the dog a giant bone to have. The dog wants to bury the bone but it is too big to move, so the T-Rex helps his friend out.

The senior portfolio is made up of the usual animation projects that we would do in an animation class. It's up to us to decide what to animate, how many frames it is, what rigs we use, and what our deadlines are. Here I will be documenting what I do for my projects each week.
