The fifth pencil test animation exercise for UCLA’s 181A class, Animation Design in Film and Television. This exercise required the following:

  • a 72 frame animation of interior animation within the face
  • shot on twos
  • 12 field animation paper
  • exposure sheet
  • This is from Fall Quarter, 2006.

    The character is based upon the Portrait of Gerard Bicker (1642) by Bartholomeus van der Helst, at the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam. Below is my original drawing, the painting at the museum and me drawing at the museum (from June 2006).
