Studles (Stu doodles)

Today I sat in a couple different places and sketched stu based on the people around me. Again, there’s no particular emotion or theme in mind –just doodling to doodle

Waiting for my first official Q&A! in the meantime, I’ve been playing with Stu and Tailor!  Put them in some familiar poses for fun  


Stu Sketches!

Posted by aleeCO on June 28, 2011 in Sketches

Yesterday I downloaded the basic rigs given to us for AM: Tailor and Stu. I found it interesting that Stu has FK on one arm and IK on the other. I was looking for the switch but later learned the rig doesn’t have one. Odd, but makes sense; let’s people who haven’t used Maya to [...]


First Mentor

Posted by aleeCO on June 27, 2011 in Orientation

Found out my first mentor is Peer Lemmers — He’s currently working at Dreamworks and before that he worked at Tippet Studios, Reel FX, and Microsoft Rare.

Tonight I designed and uploaded a badge for our Eager Beaver facebook group. Really cool to see everyone get into it — I haven’t seen a design just boom like that before! Hooray for spontaneous success and passion, of course actual AM badge –>     I put the design in a Cafe Press Store [...]


Scavenger Hunt!

Posted by aleeCO on June 12, 2011 in Orientation

Submitted the scavenger hunt for AM with three minutes to spare! I was waiting to see who’s favorite movie was “Blade Runner.” Finally “found” someone (thanks, Captain) so I was able to answer all of the questions. See, some of the hard questions were really specific. Another example was to find a student who sang/danced [...]

So…welcome to my AM blog!

Posted by aleeCO on June 4, 2011 in Orientation

I’ll use this blog to mark my progress in Animation Mentor!  I begin the summer term June 28, 2011. I won’t write long blog entries — most of what will be on here will be visual. It’s going to be a mix of AM assigned work and silly side works I do…
