31 Days 31 Poses Challenge

During the month of May, I participated in a daily challenge on Instagram started by animator Courtney Oberbeck (@court_oberbeck) where artists were encouraged to post one pose study a day. The challenge fostered a strong sense of community and support among participants, and it was exciting to see everyone's amazing work.

For me, I am all about character and emotion. Facial animation is my favorite thing to do! I loved finding poses with strong facial expressions. I also loved infusing a little bit of personality and emotion into all of my poses.

I used the challenge to not only help improve my study of anatomy and body mechanics, but to also dabble in aspects like lighting and rendering. Every pose was individually textured, lit, and rendered by myself.

Overall, the challenge was a great learning experience in many aspects, as well as a great way to connect to other artists!
