11:00 – 12:10 2D Walk Cycle
Yesterday we did created and collected some individual scenes using the Grease Pencil and even squenced in the Video Editor – all right in Blender!
Today we’ll hammer out a proper walk sequence, colorize our character and then add a bunch of modifiers to get some different effects from one basic walk cycle. Again, we’ll sequence all the scenes in the Video Editor for final render.
Things to try out: grease pencil modifiers, time modifiers, parallax effects through positioning in 2D workspace.
Filename: 2Dwalking.mp4. also save your Blender file. Week 26 folder.

1:05 – 2:05 2D Animation Prompt
The theme for this project is: Celebration
Art directors are responsible for the visual style of the animation. They decide how the characters, props and environments are going to look and provide a basis for the rest of the art department to work from.
Character designers visualise and create the look of individual characters. They work from descriptions given to them by the art director through the storyboard. These might include notes on a character’s personality as well as physical traits.
For this project, you are going to play both roles, as well as modeler, editor and producer. You do not have to have characters.
Using the theme, develop a 2D animation that fits the prompt. Your animation may include multiple scenes, background, audio, camera angles, lighting, props….
Develop a plan first, then execute.
