I am someone who loves to tell a story. This has led me to paint, write and draw comics. When studying to become a web designer I got to rig 2D characters with puppet pins in After Effect and then animate them. Then I started to animate in both Photoshop and Blenders Grease Pencil making my drawings move in small turnarounds, dance or take walks realizing that I never felt closer to making characters come alive. Maybe I could be an animator?
I have now been studying Game Animation at The Game Assembly for 2 years which has been so much fun! During this time I have created keyframe animation in Maya, cleaned Mocap in MotionBuilder and implemented features into Unreal. I would love to keep learning and working on both becoming a better animator but also to become more confident in my implementation and logic building in game engines. This fall another adventure begins as I am looking for an internship where I can keep learning. If you would like to get in touch my contact information can be found here.
What have I been up to?
