Atticus Chave - 2D Animation reel
Hi! I'm Atticus & I'm currently a second year student at CDW Studios/Flinders University. Here's some of my 2D animation work I've done over the last 6-8 months with some progress things as well. Hope you enjoy :))
Shiba Inu Loop
I created this 15 second loop from the prompt "Sleep" for the loop de loop animation challenge. It's a pretty simple concept that I wanted to feel warm and comforting. Here's some of my process
Character Design for Animation
This was a series of assignment during my 2D animation class that involved developing a character suitable for the animation process and creating a walk cycle to accompany it. I decided to create a character that leans into a 1960s retrofuturist aesthetic, with influences in mod fashion as well as later punk and goth. She would theoretically serve as a foil to a more wacky main character, with a no nonsense and sensible attitude.
Initial sketches - super influenced by characters like Dolly from Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy and Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors, as well as musicians like Siouxsie Sioux and Poly Styrene.
For the walk cycle, I changed her costuming around so I could practice overlap and follow through. I modelled her walking style on various runway and catwalks. I didn't manage to get to the colour stage but I would like to go back and complete it at some point.
