Woody Piece

This is a lil older of an animation I did after we finished the TS3 game. I had so much fun with this. One of my favorite audio clips of all time is on a League of Their Own where Tom hanks yells at one of his players and then she starts to cry. He then says "There's no crying in baseball!" anyway, here is a clip from that audio.

I did this piece with nothing but good poses in mind. I started this before the fat rabbit. I got some nice poses and really tried to get some good acting choices. There were tons of cooks in the kitchen on this one as I showed it to everyone at work. To say the least, Im not quite happy with the overall piece and how it flows. I feel like it dies in places and some of the transitions aren't working properly. But I loved doing it! I think I accomplished getting some nice poses and acting choices! I think out of all the pieces I have done I have gained the most from this one. The reason is because.....SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED TO TRUDGE THROUGH A PIECE AND FINISH IT NO MATTER HOW LONG YOU HAVE BEEN WORKING ON IT! I did all of woody because he was so exciting and then I tried to do jessie and it was really hard to find the drive to finish her subtle animations. So, my advice to anyone who might be doing a 2 person dialog.....BLOCK THEM BOTH IN AND ANIMATE THEM AT THE SAME TIME. Dont know if that helps at all. Cheers! Quiet Waaaaaaaaart!

AAH Jesse's animation is SO fantastic, Nick! I love the subtle emotion to it. Two thumbs up, friend.
