For this assignment, we were challenged with designing two characters to use for our walk cycles. We learned about the ways we could add personality and interest to our designs to further develop our characters.
For this project, we created walk cycles with our characters that we designed, one using Photoshop and one using Adobe Animate. We created a set in groups and set up mood lighting to create the atmosphere and emotion of our choice.
We learned a new type of animation called rotoscoping, where we draw over a live action video. This gave us more freedom to experiment with our own styles and interpretations of the movement.
Our assignment was to create a narrative animation that told a story without using dialogue. My group was Natalie and Alex. Below are the images I made as concept art and the storyboards. (Further down is the finished animation)
