Assignment 4 hand-out today -
CHARACTER ACTION ANIMATION
DUE DATE: WEEK 13 (in-class) April 4th
*ZERO marks for late submissions
Develop an action animation (side-scrolling) for the character you designed in
Assignment 1. The animation should be consistent with your character’s design and
personality as shown in previous assignments.
Use thumbnails and rough sketches to explore your ideas. Establish your key poses
first (minimum 6 frames). Any additional in-between frames are more to support the
main action found in your key poses.
Action can be some form of attack (kick, punch, sword slash etc) or other suitable action
(evade/dodge, ground roll etc).
In the examples from Limbo the character runs, jumps, climbs, and hangs from a giant insect. What do the characters do in your favorite side scrollers that your character might do?
SUBMIT ALL OF THE FOLLOWING:
A) Thumbnail sketches – minimum 6 key poses
B) Line-test animation – preliminary animation
C) Final animation – polished B&W or Colour
