Punny Doodle - Keyhole Surgery

Punny doodle of the day.
I have to wrap up and send my wacom to Australia today to make sure it arrives when we do and i'm already sad to say goodbye to it. It may be almost 8 years old and laggy but I love it. Also future Tania, you put the wacom pen in your pencil case...that should save me months of searching.

A New Look for a New Year

You may have noticed a few changes around these parts.

Over the last few weeks I've been putting my animation ducks in a row and now I can unveil my new website, blog and showreel...tada...ok So it's nothing special but everyone things needs a little sprucing now and again.

The website name has changed from marshmallowpenguin to my name 'Tania Vincent'. Why have I done this? Well I wrestled with the decision a lot and finally I came to the conclusion that although marshmallow penguin is fun and close to my heart, my name would help people in the industry find me. That's the plan anyway.

So without further ado here is my new little corner of the Internet:www.taniavincent.co.uk

Mery Rig - One Week animation Project Pt 5

Well, the week has finished and although it is no where near finished I am happy with the progress I managed to squeeze in there from grabbing time here and there through the week. There wasn't a competition or a deadline but I wanted to set myself a challenge.
The eyes, lipsync...well everything needs more polish but it was a good practice exercise.

I've so much just playing around with this animation and i'm itching to start another.

Mery Rig - One Week Animation Project Pt 4

Hello hello, so my weekend was spent planning and getting ready for my big move to Australia so the animation had to wait for the week. (Don't worry, I bought a new sketch book for the 4 months of travel...yes i'm thinking of the essentials).

Yesterday I turned on the splines and started working on separate body parts. On this rig (as if I don't praise it enough...it's free too...go get it from here) you can make only certain elements viable which means its a great way of getting those curves smooth in the spline.
I am struggling with the dance, I altered it to try and find a bit more variation and comedy so it's a few stages behind the rest of it. Once again, the face is not even slightly done. apart from vague poses left over from the blocking stage. So ignore those horrible face...if you can.
I hope you like it and please forward on any critiques. I'd love to hear your opinions.
