Emotional Stills

Lastly, the screens of my emotional poses.







Lip Sync

The final task we were assigned to do was to create a 10 second lip sync. There were no other requirements just that it was at least 10 seconds. For this i created the scene from Star Wars episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, where Darth Sidious initiates order 66.
Below is the video of the scene:

To help me create my lip sync i used phonemes. These are the position of the mouth and tounge when certain letters and phrases are spoken. Below is an image of the phoneme chart i used:

Walk Cycle

For the 4th task we were assigned to create a walk cycle animation. Like the jump animation i used a picture and a video to help me make my own.

Jump Cycle

The 3rd task we were assigned to do was to create a jump cycle animation. I had to do some research for this and used one video and one image to help me create my jump.

Obstacle course

The second task we were assigned was to create an obstacle course style animation.

Ball bounces

The first task we were assigned was to create a ball bounce animation for two different balls of two different masses.
I chose to do a tennis ball and a bowling ball because they are each completley different in mass.
Before making each animation i used reference videos from YouTube to help me determine the timings of the balls bouncing.
Below is a link to the video i used for the tennis ball:
