This is my character Animation reel incuding professional and some personal work. I had to wait till one of the series was aired for a while to be able to put this out in the public domain. Hope you like it and would love to get some feedback.

First 'steps' in 3D....

I started learning Maya.. teaching myself at home thanks to some amazing kind people who post tutorials online. The book 'How to Cheat in Maya' has been an enormous help. I hope to dedicate more time regularly towards this. Animation IS my passion and I wanna keep getting better and work on feature films.

So here's a walk cycle I animated using the Malcolm Rig(Malcolm character courtesy of AnimSchool.com)

The animation here is far from perfect (pops and jitters in the joints are obvious)and I have done a lot more tests in the process of learning.
Just wanted to share a test with you all.. Please feel free to critique it..

Ah Yes! The beach

Doodles while at the airport

I came across this beautiful student film, 'In-Between'. I loved the animation and the overall look of the film. So while waiting for my flight... I just drew something inspired by the short.
Here's the link for the short, if you haven't seen it:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2xp22IYL2uU
The second illustration, well, I was on my way to Greece for a vacation!
