So yeah, I just managed to fail my 2nd year at university (boo) but have thankfully been given the chance to catch up over summer (yay) due to the reason I failed was because of a badly broken ankle requiring some pretty serious surgery. Then not long after I finished up in hospital with deep cut to me right hand, damaging the nerves FOREVER (shit) and requiring bandaging for quite a while. Shortly followed by breaking my right hand up pretty seriously, again requiring surgery and plates. As you can imagine, neither injuries are ideal for an Graphic Arts student and left me out of action for a fuck load of hours, which lead to a fuck load of work not being completed. Still not completely healed but screw it, I'm not waiting another year to progress.

On a brighter note - I've been given three animation briefs to complete over with the themes; anticipation, preparation and resolution. I'm allowed to continue with my studies provided these animations are completed by the end of summer. The only limitation was the animation had to be bang on 30 seconds.

Here we have my first submission on the subject of anticipation. Not having strict guidelines allowed me to be pretty liberal with the content and how it fits with the theme - and this is what I finished up with. The second animation (preparation) is currently a WIP and will be uploaded soonish.

TL;DR - Hope you enjoy! :)

Thanks, glad to hear you thought so. :)

Great animation

The image of the snail lips spitting out the cig was perfect. I don't believe snails really have lips but I believed it when I saw it. Cute(besides the cig) and short.

I was unsure about the spitting part myself so that makes me feel better about it. Cheers!


It's simple, and it's very well done. Good going!
