Bouncing Ball animation

This is my bouncing ball animation from a couple of weeks ago! Might still revise the first bounce on the way in to make it shorter.

Hero and Villain Assignment

For this assignment we were to make a Hero and Villain pair. I tried making two women working in space, one of whom is ex-military with a vendetta to kill a giant space whale, and the other a young girl who took on a job as advisor to the captain for handling dangerous deep space organisms. The young girl is Clair, she has to report back to Earth or space HQ or something (not everything is nailed down yet) on whether this whale needs to be preserved or destroyed. The older woman is Captain Annette, who has lost family to this dangerous space whale thing and pretty much would kill herself and her crew just to get a swing at it.

I want to update you guys on some of the schoolwork I've been doing! The thing I was most excited for was actually animating moving things, so I'll start with that. Our first assignment in our Timing Techniques class was to animate a swinging pendulum. We needed to learn to show things slowing to a stop and reversing direction, and how to make things slow down or speeding up and still look natural.
For now this looks a bit dark, but as we get into more polished animations it'll look clearer, I promise. ;)
