Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
I can't believe the holidays are here already.
I hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving.
I know I will, I've been waiting for the holidays since last year!
There's so much to be thankful about, but I only have time to draw out a few :/
Without these things, I would not be who I am today.
(Some drawings have more than one thing to be thankful about, so I kind of cheated)
Have a wonderful holiday and remember those things that you are thankful for!

Stable Layout

For layout class, a group of us were assigned to design a stable layout.
So I decided to put my film character in a forest.
He's not a final design, but he's almost there!
I'm a little iffy about this layout,
but my instincts were telling me to just do it :P

I hope my instincts are right....

Acting Within an Attitude

I am posting another 2D animation assignment that I did for this week.
It's really not the best, but I've been trying to focus on clear acting.
With 2D and 3D.
Our assignment was to animate an emotion with just a few poses.
I wanted to use the vampire that I drew for character design.
And again, I apologize for the bad lighting. And my small drawings :P
The vampire is pulling a small bulb of garlic out of the box.

When I get the chance, I would like to hold the vampire's first pose a little longer.
Instead of just having him immediately rising up from behind the table.
But until then, this is what I have:
