A drawing is an idea. As an animator, I turn ideas into stories.
I am currently a junior at the Kansas City Art Institute. It's been a blessing and privilege to be a student there after earning my AFA at the Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville, IL. I keep this as a journal of my latest projects and explorations in animation.

Progress 1 from Douglas Meloche on Vimeo.
Happily, I can genuinely call this progress. Focusing on walk cycles sounded like a great idea and a perfect fit for this assignment. It is...and in so many ways it is Driving Me Crazy!
I see the improvements I am making, but I really must find a way to crank up the speed. The concept behind this project is to provide a short narrative that tells a man's life (very briefly) through walk cycles at different stages in his life.
The video is roughly 60% done. I just need to: work the problems out of this last under-layer (the cane walk), drop two characters, include transitions, and see how many secondary actions I can include.
