Young horse run cycle line test

Young horse run cycle from Reg Isaac on Vimeo.

I've recently been way to busy to spend time drawing my own personal stuff, cant really blame it on anything but heavy work loads so i thought i'd share some of that with you instead. Ive recently been working with a client to produce a series of animated clips, with the intention of helping to teach the french language. heres a short young horse run cycle test from that in its line-test form, let me know what you think and enjoy :)

Ed Hooks Masterclass

So, yesterday i attended the Ed Hooks masterclass at Animex festival, hosted by Teeside University. after all the organising i finally managed to sort everything out and get a few of the students at my university to tag along with me. Was well worth the hassle and was a great class.

For any budding Character animators out there, i'd recommend one of his classes greatly, he's a great guy and really knows what he's talking about, which is completely understandable considering he's taught aDisney on three continents, PDI/DreamWorks, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Sony, Blue Sky, Black Rock, Ubisoft, Midway Games, Epic Games, Valve Software and many others. He mentions some amazing details regarding the acting and performance of your characters that will dramatically improve your work, on sooooo many levels.

Also, he's a really friendly guy, he was more than happy to give us all his email, and for us to send him any work for feedback, this was the most important thing for me. He doesnt just want to teach his workshop and leave, he wants to keep teaching and help the younger generation know and understand what he already has, this to me is the sign of a true great. Someone that wants the workshop to be the start of the relationship, not the end.

Really enjoyed the workshop and hope i get to meet him again, many thanks Ed.

For anyone that is interested in his book, which goes over all the topics he mentions in his workshop, here it is :)

Ive missed life drawing way to much!

Finally got to do some much needed life drawing again. haven't done life drawing in so long, and quite frankly, ive really missed it. It was nice to sit there and and just get on with it, but 2 hours really isn't enough, only just got warmed up and into the swing of things with half hour of the lesson left. Me and a buddy from my corse got talking after lesson and really want to carry on life drawing classes and hopefully will be starting to go on a regular basis outside of uni times. So with a bit of luck, i'll be posting my progress on developing my life drawing skills here as well.

And on a side not, Force: Dynamic Life Drawing for Animators is a must have people. Such an awesome book. ive been dying to absorb it for sooo long and ive only recently had a chance to sit down and read it.
