Simplicity Example: POCOYO

If you haven't already checked this, you should do it now.

You can watch a lot of videos on youtube. Here is one.

You really don't need complex characters to create compelling animation. Be simple, do more.

First Character Animation

This was an assignment for my Animation-I class. We had to start from one attitude and go to second attitude in 4 seconds. I went for curious to shocked/scared. I worked on it for continuously two nights without much sleep, so I fell sick after working on this assignment. I redid a lot of drawings to get better and conveying poses and to get timing right. I learned a lot of things in this assignment, especially timing. I still wish I could rework on few areas especially when the bean bag jumps.

2D Flag Animation

I kind of enjoyed the assignment, but I did not do well. The middle part is kind of boring with the same size waves in the flag. That takes away the believability of the material. But anyway here it is.

New 3D character (Almost there)

We are creating a 3d character in one of the animation classes. The same character we are going to rig and animate in the end. I dragged the modeling part a lot to make it as good as possible within given time. But I am happy with what I have so far. I wish I could do better with his hair. But never mind considering the time we have. I still have to texture his short.
