Every now and then I try to pick up a piece of animation work, just to keep my (limited) animation skills from freezing over!
Though most of my professional work has been in rigging, animating is something I really enjoy and always seem to go back to. Getting the chance to animate a little on Monster High: Welcome to Monster High during my Tech Anim role on the project has really reminded me just how much I enjoy it. I hope to pick up some proper animation training the next time I find a break between freelance contracts.
Anyway, here's a quick practice exercise in lip sync, the last thing I actually sat down and animated. Sorry the animation never got past the blocking stage, but the lip sync is almost there!
