Our third assignment for my Advanced Animation Workshop at the School of Visual Arts. This was the first piece of animation we produced for the class, with the assignment being to have a character carry a heavy object from one side of the screen to another. I went an extra mile and did two characters, with one of the two having two different animations. I hadn't animated the Parody Rangers cast in a while, so I chose Billiam as the poor sap who had to lift a box somewhere, with Meat in the background easily carrying a much heavier load. Not wanting to be shown up, Billiam tries to lift his box over his head and...doesn't do so well. This was a good exercise for getting me back into the animation spirit, since I hadn't done any -real- movement in quite a while. Not bad for a start, I hope.

Holy cheese sticks, Blue rangers hair grew to ridiculous proportions, but meat looks more plausible and human now.

Hahaa, can't lie here...But the squash and stretch here is a bit TOO much...Looks a bit awkward here.. (mainly on billiam)

Another thing that seems like its throwing the animation a tad off...Where billiam feet don't continue from the last position and push him to make him move...but instead "slides" him to the next position...the sliding in the movements that makes it bit too "unrealistic" since in reality your "pushing" yourself off the ground, not sliding.

(Instead try to keep his feet in the same spot, not moving backwards when he's trying to push himself)

And i still say more could of been done to billiam movement to give us a better understanding/emphasize that the box he was carrying was really "THAT" heavy...(instead of just having him walk slowly)

Like the last part when he brung the box over his head (look very light we he tossed it over his head like that)

Maybe having added a few frames to him (trying) to lift the box up over his head. Or possible just double frame the lifting parts (very slowly since its heavy after all..instead of easily "tossing" it over head)


To show he had to struggle a bit more there.


Anyway, looks good, very bouncy and cartoon~y feel here dude.

Cant wait to see more updates from you. :)

If you don't get a good mark on this, I will personally find your professor/teacher/whatever you call him and slap him. D8<

This is really great. I'm envious of your ability to make this seem so easy, yet at the same time, it's inspiring. I hope one day I can do great animations just like you. :3

Great work, I had no idea you were in SVA! My original plan was to get into High School of Art and Design, and then get into SVA, but it looks like that's out of the question (not a resident of NY :C).

My dad also went to SVA. Neat coincidence, heh.

Maybe he's carrying something like anti-matter or whatever. Or just needs to go to the gym.
Otherwise, nicely animated to show off the different characteristics.

Kirb, I know you had to do this as an assignment and was probably rushed, but I kinda noticed that after Billiam takes his first step after putting the box over his head, it kinda looks like he slides abit with his right foot sliding last before he takes his second step
