Compositing Exercise

This week in Digital Compositing we got an assignment where we had to take 3D modeled elements and manipulate them in After Effects.  Each gear piece set is a separate layer, manipulated, corrected and moved separately. Enjoy!

Fshhhhh

Well, phonetic jokes are way more fun when said aloud - much was lost with that joke, but this guy is certainly no joke ... I wouldn't want to meet him in the water. This was a fun little airplane drawing using good ol' pencil and ballpoint pen.
