I have the project to make (may be, if I can) a cartoon, so I started a character study.
It’s not complete, I must do side views and three-quarters views, other movements …
For now, there’s a front vue : http://skias.free.fr/images/gamine2.png
and a running animation (that can be improved); http://vimeo.com/41208732
The colours are not yet fixed, I am still hesitant.
the character is lovely but I see something I dislike on her eyes. The white bright tends to act like a pupil which confuses me a lot. Maybe study other kind of eye would improve it.
Other than that, I love it.
L’animation est pas mal du tout mais j’ai l’impression que le bras gauche est plus grand que le bras droit
It’s a good animation but i think that the left arm is bigger than the right arm
and thank you for the comments
Genete, I find too that there is a problem with the eyes. As there is no white, they look a little in the eyes of an animal, and the eye has no direction. But the stylized form was easily expressive. I redid the eyes more realistic, but I like them less: http://skias.free.fr/images/gamine3.png
I don’t want big eyes like in the mangas. Maybe I’ll try to find another form?
Sek, I shortened left arm. Is that better? : http://vimeo.com/41249376
I did a test of footprints in the snow, but as the movement of the legs is not perfect, it was difficult.
For clothes, do you think that these colors are beautiful ?
Thank you again
I like the snow animation - nicely done.
I do like the realistic eyes version. It is a question of taste. Eyes has lot of influence on the character personality so once defined the second, the first should match.
I love the fluidness of the walking on the snow. Pretty good one. Clothes are really believable and footprints works perfectly.
Thank you Genete and pixelgeek
There’s a new image : http://skias.free.fr/images/gamine4.png
I didn’t put shadows - I don’t know if I must really put them, it’s hard to animate with the shadows …
I think the reason the first eye type didn’t work is because the girl is quite realisitic looking. The white dots do look like pupils (maybe a little blur would fix that?) and she looks really evil with the angery expression
I like the run, it looks really great! However, I think the back of the coat moves too much. I find it distracting, and to me, the coat looks heavier.
The footprints and snow are a really nice touch, I hope to see more animation with this character.
I like your character…it is lovely
Nice animation i must say!!!
Do not be hesitant about choosing your colors…your character is worth appreciating…
Make your best out of it.
Best of luck
