Animation foundation are one of the most important steps you can take to become a good animator. Taking the 12 principles apart to their basic components is great to understand what make them appealing.

This is a very old animation of bouncing I did at the beginning of my time at SCAD. It's fun to look back and see all of the errors, it prove how far you have gone.

I though I was pretty I was good when I did Indiana Jump during my first class of animation. Oh boy I was wrong, looking back, there is so much that is wrong.

Overall, animation foundation was a confusing time. I did not know if I want to continue with 3D animtion, or go with 2D animation instead. All the while, concept and visual development become one of the concentration that was available at SCAD.  However, as I look further, beyond these basic animations and my attempt to tell small stories with them, I see the posibility of medium. I’m glad that I stuck with what I saw in those days.
