5th Frame

I was having trouble loading this frame fr a while so I hope this works.

This is my final frame. I got tired of that whole "prince saves the princess" bull, so I had her take care of the witch herself. For those of you who don't know in the original Grimm Story, snow white is "Snow Drop" and she's seven. She dies and is put in a glass coffin. Taken by the prince then dropped the glass coffin and she got knocked in the head and the poison apple chunk that was APPERENTLY lodged in her throat gets knocked loose and... she comes back to life. LAME!!! I think you'll like this spin.

Designing the Frame: Snow White Remix

My First Frame in my Snow White Remix

If you know the story , which everyone does, this will be fun.This was one of my first real experiences with both Illustrator and Photoshop, I kinda went alittle crazy, but I am totally satisfied with my frames. Try to figure out what scenes are which and if you have any trouble just ask me. they do go in sequencial order so... enjoy.


So here are the rest of the animations that I have been working on since the year started.


The anticipation animation is pretty self explainitory. We have our "object" enter then hold on our "object" for a few sec (3 i think) and then have it do an exit action. Simple... sorta


The Metamorphosis project was take and object and morph it into a totally different object using either natural or super natural means. This one was really fun and I think is my longest animation so far..... no really saying much i know but this stuff takes time to shell out.


Simple (or so it seems). Animate a rock, a leaf and a piece of paper. All three have really different rates of falling so that makes them alittle harder to animate. Mainly because its something tat we see all the time so if it doesn't look right its really really obvious.

Walk Cycle

Basics of animations. You gatta do it at one point or another. So yay. This is just studing the walk cycle and how the physics of the whole body works. Looks simple but its totally complicated ( not ridiculously, but close)


First Post

So Ive decided to take full advantage of this blog thing and show some of the work I've been doing while I'm here at the Kansas City Art Institute. This is for my family and friends and for anyone who is just bored and wants to see whats going on in Art School. Enjoy.

This is my first animation. Its soo hard to watch now. There are so many obvious mistakes that I'm hoping Ill have time to go back and correct.
