This was for my 2D Effects Animation class with Professor Troy Gustafson.
I was given the task to animate an incense stick similar to the one in Disney's Mulan. I had to use the same animation style, but in my own flight path.
This is the project that I had the most fun with. I really enjoyed the challenge of animating something that is difficult to see in person.
Bouncing Ball Test
Running Time: 0:04 sec
Hand drawn on paper, Flipbook
This was my first assignment from my 2D Effects Animation course with Professor Troy Gustafson. I animated on paper and was given a layout from Disney's Pinocchio for the background.
I enjoyed this project just because I was required to animate on paper again. I feel that this is a necessary tool to help animators grow traditionally. Adding tones and shadows to the perspective was fun to figure out and play with.
Water Splash Test
Running Time: 0:02 sec
This is a work-in-progress test that I did for my 2D Effects Animation course with Professor Troy Gustafson. The background image is from Disney's Mulan.
Water is most challenging effect that I had to tackle in this class. I am still working on this project and want to practice animating water in many other forms so I can obtain a better understanding of it.
Fire Torch Test
Running Time: 0:06 sec
This is a work-in-progress test that I did for my 2D Effects Animation course with Professor Troy Gustafson.
I completed two fire tests for this assignment and am still unsatisfied. Fire is definitely a fun challenge. I love how easily it can be changed and manipulated by movement and how spontaneous it is.

This was created during my freshman year in my Principles of 3D Animation course.
Maya is a challenge and I am still practicing and polishing my 3D skills. Switching between 3D and 2D is interesting to see how different the programs are.

This jump assignment was one of my first animation tests using Maya in my Principles of 3D Animation course.
