STOP MOTION, SQUIRREL JUMPING ANIMATION, and 3d modeling
I took classes from Animation Mentor, an animation school that teaches character animation skills, headquartered in Emeryville, California, and the Academy of Art University PCAE (The Pre-College Art Experience). Some of the works I created, which include CG animation, stop motion with pixelation technique, and claymation method, are below. More on Animation and Stop Motion.
This cute squirrel needed a house, so I built one utilizing Autodesk Maya for my Animation Mentor Assignment. I built a low-poly model. When I was modeling this squirrel house, I was inspired by the structures of the houses in Animal Crossing, a social simulation video game series developed and published by Nintendo.
