Animation Mentor term 2: Body Mechanics!

That’s right, Animation Mentor is back on and it’s term 2: Body Mechanics! Term 1 flew by, here’s my progress reel:

First week of term 2 is posing, then we get into full body walks and really learn body mechanics—how people move. Fascinating stuff. If you catch me staring at you, I’m probably watching your balance and weight shifts and filing it all away for future animating. And if you catch me wobbling about like a bit of a puppet, I’m probably trying to get a feel for some sort of imagined mechanic. All perfectly normal behaviour for an animator—do not be alarmed!

Here are the week 2 poses. Oh yeah, new rig: Stella!
