Aunt Stephanie

My family makes calendars every year so we can remember birthdays and stuff like that. Somehow this picture of my aunt circulated around the family, and ended up in this year's calendar. I almost died when I saw it. I'm sure we were never meant to see it. Anyway, decided to caricature it.

Butterfly Flying

video
I used the wing flutter plans (posted below somewhere) to animate this butterfly in flight. This is actually a rough from my short (from a different camera, but it's the same animation). Used the alpha for the out placard of my demo reel. It put together nicely, only took a few hours from start to finish, and the best part was I had a good idea how to make it work before I sat down.

Cats and Rabbits

They aren't that pretty, but it beats watching the scripts in the output window scroll as I wait for my Maya files to load.
