In this session, we did a few quick gestures of Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story before critiquing everyone's rough animation test. I received some notes about ways I can push my animation and poses and I sketched down the instructor's suggestions. The biggest suggestion was pushing the camera angle during the transformation sequence. It is a good suggestion and I am sure it will make my animation better.

In this class session, we drew some gestures from a Tom and Jerry episode titled "The Guardian." Afterwards, we were given different emotions and we had to draw as many variations as possible of our characters expressing that emotion. This was to introduce us to our homework assignment which was we have to take one scene from our storyboard and do a rough animation test. The catch was that we have to select a scene that includes at least 3 different emotions.

For my short, I worked on several different designs of outfits, hairstyles and eyes. I decided I wanted a character that's more sassy. I tried to portray that attitude in a couple of pose sketches. I also laid out several different color ideas and a height chart based on head sizes.
