The Many Faces of Stu - Part 2

This week I'll be finishing up my first class (Basic Foundations) at Animation Mentor. I can't believe how quickly the term has flown by--and how much I've learned in such a short amount of time. It's been an amazing experience so far. As expected, long hours and lots of hard work. Incredibly challenging. I'm having a blast! :)

I had never animated anything before enrolling at AM, so it's been awesome to discover that animating is actually a lot of fun. There's something very rewarding about seeing a character come to life--even if it's just a simple bouncing ball. My work is still pretty crude and I've got a long ways to go in my journey as an animator, but that's okay. I'm digging these first baby steps and I'm excited to keep learning.

Onward to Class 2 - Psychology of Body Mechanics!

I'll post my Class 1 Progress Reel here next week. For now, here are some more of my Stu poses from this term. 


  1. They really cool Jorge. Stu looks likes he's always involved in some kinda of tiring activities or is he just lazy and like to take naps ?

    1. haha
      Thanks, Ludo.
      The assignment for these poses was to convey desolation, physical strength, concern, exhaustion, and balance.

      But yes--Stu is indeed lazy and likes to take naps. :)
