Always wanted to animate #SonicTheHedgehog so I had a ton of fun with this! And I put up a FREE video on gumroad breaking down how it was made: jordanimation.gumroad.com/ #animation #3danimation #3dart

Sometimes you just gotta go jump in a pool. These two swimming shots on The Sea Beast were probably the most I've ever struggled on a group of shots. Thread below: #animation #netflix #3Danimation #art

I was mostly using ref I found online, trying to stitch things together to create the shot I wanted, but after having to reblock the shot around 5 or 6 times, I thought to myself "I wish I had a ref video with the exact mechanics and performance I need", and then it hit me...

Time to go jump in a pool with some friends! We used the latest waterproof tech known as "phone in a ziplock bag". One of the really big takeways from the ref was how simple the water landing was. A lot of the previous blocking involved a lot of tumbling around as they landed...

...in the water, but in the end a simpler landing was more realistic. The performance ended up changing a few times after the ref was taken, but it provided such a crucial base to really get the shot going in the right direction.

Some shots from the end of #MayaAndTheThree. When I was animating she was just in an empty cylinder and I had no idea what they were planning for effects; then a few weeks later I checked in and everything was on FIRE. It went from looking kinda lame to pretty epic 😁 #animation

I thought I'd finish up sharing my contributions to #MayaAndTheThree. Never thought I would animate a character being choked, having his heart ripped out, and melting, but here we are! The video reference could probably get me arrested too. #animation #3Danimation #3dart

A lot of people have been asking what the trick is to getting a super dynamic camera. For me, it's starting out with simple geometry and playing around until I find something cool. I'll plug the free gumroad video again that explains it in more detail: app.gumroad.com/jordanimatio…

I'm also looking for something that has interesting variation in both timing, speed, and screen depth. #animation #tutorial #3Danimation #SonicTheHedgehog #animate

Sad boy moments at the bottom of the pit from #MayaAndTheThree. Her gigantic helmet was difficult to get in front of her without being too distracting, so I really had to play around with posing and scaling things. #animation #animator #3danimation

I got to animate the first time Chimi speaks in #MayaAndTheThree ! Chimi was an interesting challenge to try and keep those hints of animal behaviour in her movements. #chimi #animation #animator #3danimation

Some more @mayaandthe3 shots! Chiapa was a ton of fun to animate. My pet jaguar was out of comission when I did reference for this so had to rely on some good ol' 2d planning

Going to start posting some chunks I animated from @mayaandthe3 ! @mexopolis created this really awesome scene with the moon backlighting it and I had a joy animating it. Also attached some ref at the end 😁 #animation #netflix #3Danimation #2danimation #anime #Animator
