Made some pretty big strides this month, thanks to my peers and mentor. Huge thanks to everyone for helping me out thus far ;)


Clips for two-person dialogue

polished version submitted to AM:

Cleaned up the body and worked on the face. Spent a lot of time studying acting ~ really paying attention to eyes and hands. Amazing progress of learning this week ~ hit some “Ah-ha!” moments ;)

This week we were given Bishop, so I’m tackling my first shot AM of a character with a face.

I ended up choosing the first dialogue clip.

Here’s my first blocking:


Olympic moments in 3D!

In spirit of the McKayla Maroney memes, I recreated her in 3D.

This is just another pose I chose to recreate. I’ve been practicing with different expressions to get used to manipulating the face rig on Bishop.
