I finished it :)

So here is my contribution to the rowing assignment. After doing my grad film in ToonBoom, I wanted to try to animate the whole thing without linetesting it to challenge me to think more while animating and have more of a purpose with my poses (and no changing after linetesting—what will be, will be).

There are some quite obvious mistakes with the timing and spacing of the oars. It feels a bit like he is rowing in mud or something and then moving super fast back in the air. There is also some ugly mistakes with the arcs of them both right before it goes down into the water and in the water. The hands also goes out of their arcs as he reaches forward.

Oh well, hehe.. it was good fun to do. I want to do more of this in the future, and hopefully the next one will get better :)

Rowing through polygons...

First post here! Found time amongst film work to work on this. Feedback really welcome. Looking forward to doing more of these short tests, they really help to keep me on my toes!
