Even if I have a job that doesn't involve animation I'll still be working on my own stuff, I'm actually starting Pre-pro for new Demo Reel Assets, I don't find my dialogue to be up to par with the rest of my work. I have the idea to plan out a new dialogue asset, then to practice on the Stop Staring book and tutorials. Once I get through the books practice I'll revise the asset if needed and then use what I learned from the book to make the new asset.
Another way I practice my animation and have fun with it is I make wallpapers for myself. Back in the finals department at Full Sail I had this wallpaper to motivate myself to keep working.
Since then I've used some of the poses from the Roboter Pose tests, and today I made this new one (which I really like). I prefer to feel that Goon is thinking to himself "I've got this weird feeling that something is behind me..."
That's the B-boy rig behind Goon, a bit of an ominous introduction I think. I think I just got a new idea for the Blogs background which I have to update. Anyway thanks for checking this out, hope you like what you see.
