The fights in Motorcity are really inspiring.  I had to try to animate one on my own.

Titmouse's "Motorcity" - Rough Animation from Aaron Brewer on Vimeo.

With the airing of the final episode of Titmouse's "Motorcity" on Disney XD, I can start posting some of the stuff I worked on. This is the very first sequence I animated and it's a pretty heavy moment in the episode and series but I really enjoyed the challenge.

Haven't posted in a while but I definitely haven't stopped drawing.  Here's another Kungfu motion test.  I love those moments in Kungfu movies where two fighters do a series of moves and stances to demonstrate their style before attacking.  Completely useless in a real fight but I can't help but geek out when they're done well.  Thought I'd try to animate one of those moments to work on my timing.  Prob won't clean this up any time soon.

I think the toughest part about animating these moves is combining speed and clarity.  The transitions between strikes and stances have to be clear, smooth and pack some force.  I guess that's the case with anything you animate but it's taking a lot of trial and error with this kungfu stuff.  You can see I started numbering out my drawings and using timing charts but abandoned it once I started breaking stuff down and redrawing poses.  A nice chunk of the final product came from feeling things out. I'm aspiring to get to a point where I can understand the movements enough to efficiently plot out the poses and timing in the beginning.

Working on some lip sync

Cocoon of Horror from Aaron Brewer on Vimeo.

I've been wanting to animate to this dialogue track for quite some time now but never got around to it for one reason or another. Probably a bit intimidated by the notion of doing full facial animation. Now that I've finally done it, I can't wait to do more! I'm definitely going to clean this up, sooner rather than later. Gonna keep pushing myself.

Keep an eye out for some action stuff in the next month or two.

Speedo Bling

Had the urge to doodle.

I've been plugging away at this fight scene. I roughly drew out all of the moves just so I could have a visual. Was a bit difficult trying to map it out in my head. Next step is to plot out the attack and defend poses for the two characters. I'll post that once I finish.
