Cupcake Color Complete!

Cupcakes - October's Project 2013 from Kevin Ridgway on Vimeo.

This was my project of the month for October. I felt like doing some 2d animation, so i used PAP 4.0 for the roughs, and decided to learn some Toon Boom for the clean up and coloring. And my friend Ryan Ingram wanted to do the environment.

Villain Action Samples

Wanted to do some action stuff since it has been a while since i did any. So I spent the past 4 days working on these, trying to get some realistic looking movements and proper weighting.

Did some quick cycles today to keep up with a weekly exercise structure that I am trying to do. I want to get back into some more action/game animation while working on more character animation as well.

New-ish Animation WIP

Here is some progression of what I have been working on this month. It started out nice and short... and turning into a 30 second piece -_-  I was going to also do an 11 second club entry this month, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen.

I think I'm going to just end this test.  It was only supposed to be a two week test to learn PAP, and I have been spending too much time working on it....

New Blender Test

New Blender test.  Was bored while rendering at work today and decided to get more familiar with hotkeys, and this happened after some more tweaking at home.  Needed to work on the lips... They kept looking like duck lips. -____-


 Another hour in. Got rid of some edge loops with the head, and not a big fan of the ear :/

Some more progress, about 2 more hours added.

Progression Animations

I forgot to post the before and after revisions for my animation tests from earlier this year.  As you can see... I ended up redoing all of them from scratch. :/

Woodward Inspiration WIP 2

Haven't really had much time to work on this at all.  This is about 7 hours into It maybe? And I am getting allot more familiar with PAP. Still enjoying it.

Phone Turn Around







I have been meaning to make a phone, and some more realistic electronic devices for a while, but I just recently was able to make on.  I just used my Droid 4 as the model.  It took me around 6 hours to do.

Woodward Inspired WIP


video

I have had a little free time to play round in PAP 4.0 and decided to do a little test inspired by Ryan Woodward to get used to it, and to get back into the swing of 2d. This is about 3 hours into it... I kept having to start over because of saving mistakes.

Old Lady Model

(Did not draw this)

I got to model a character for the fist time in a little while for a friends senior project.  It was pretty fun and relaxing to not deal with programs crashing while animating.  The nice turn around I got helped allot too!
