Week 8: The Wushu Animation

Finally finished the Wushu Animation and boy, was it a trip!

Below is my rough Wushu animation (that I talked more in detail about in the previous blog post).

Even though I wrote about it previously, the short animation I did was Wushu. Wushu is a martial art, as well as a full-contact sport. I decided to choose this animation (from Bodies in Motion website) because I loved fluidity. The motion was so simple but yet so graceful.

It took me about 3 weeks from start to finish to complete the 25-frame animation. This should have honestly taken me less than a week but that’s sometime how life happens.

Below is the final Wushu animation.

I made mistake after mistake with this animation but I still love it. The main purpose of this whole thing was to learn and become more comfortable with the grease pencil in Blender 2.8 (beta) and I feel like I successfully completed that mission.

Hopefully, the next 2D animation will be a little easier.

JJ signing out.

Until next time.
