So I’ve started Animation Mentor’s Character Animation course, and am super excited at being on it!

Second Assignment (the first with work done): Sketch various people in different poses out in public. I went to a cafe and a park to find my ‘subjects’. I found it pretty difficult to quickly draw the pose of a moving person, someone mid stretch or bending down to talk to their child or running around.

One of the most impossible tasks I’ve ever tried is trying to draw a moving child! :)












I had to choose one of the sketches to reproduce with a 3D model. I decided to use 3 poses, and see which ones the AM community preferred.





I mostly chose this as my final pose because it was the most dynamic of all the poses. I kind of took the ‘easy’ way out with this assignment and chose what I felt was a safe option, although it may not have been the best one to go with, I felt that a more dynamic pose would be the best one to go with. I probably should have gone with one of the more subtle natural poses, like sitting on a bench or texting on the phone.
