Fixing - WIP



Here's my first assignment from the Pixar 2 class. We were told to have a character "fix" an object. We had three weeks to finish it. The hardest part was to think of an idea. Even harder was to make it clear for the teachers and fellow students who have never seen a scale and know how it is used. However foreign students had no problem understanding what was going on.

Now the notes the teachers gave me. As a overall note, the scale seems attached to the hand and moves with the arm with no sense of weight. Instead, the arm should move according to the movement of the scale showing it's weight.

The weight shifts on the body from 18 to 40 are too sharp. it can be toned down and i could add a little overlap on spine. I was told to push the satisfied expression on his face at 155 by raising his left eyebrow even more and adjusting the eye shape, coz the raised eyebrow will pull the upper eye lid accordingly.

From 190-208, the body just translates. they told me to add a breakdown showing that the hips are leading the action and the spine, neck and head are following.

From 240-270, it looks like he's chewing something instead of him mumbling. I was told to add mouth shapes to his inner dialogue.

Comments or critiques are welcome.
