Effects in Kazu Kibuishi Style

The assignment was to choose another artist and draw, paint, or render an original image in their style. I chose Kazu Kibuishi, a comic artist, particularly the style of his Copper stories.  I used several elements from his various works, and created the image digitally.

The second step involved adding in effects using Maya and a compositing program.  I used Maya to generate the spore particle's random movements, and I used Autodesk Composite to add in the spores, the balloon's movement, and distortion on the smoke.  Both are shown below.

Walk Cycles

This assignment was to learn walk cycles, and apply the knowledge of arcs and overlapping action. We selected from several pre-modeled characters, so we could come back and animate them later. I decided to do a 3/4 view to make it more challenging.
