These are the first animations I have ever done completed in my Introduction to 2D Animation class taught by William Hartland in Maryland Institute College of Art over the course of one semester. 

 

From start to finish, I tackle, explore and improve upon my 2D Animation skills and creativity by taking on each basic assignments given to me and give it a unique twist of my own. I also strive to go above and beyond the criteria because I find that having a story within each piece no matter if it is practice or not is important because storytelling is one of the most important essense of the beauty of Animation. 
 
All the animations below were done drawing traditionally on lightbox.
It then edited and finalized using Adobe Flash CC and Adobe After Effects CC.
