For this project, I will be creating and animating characters based on the 60s band The Beatles. 

  1. Paul McCartney

I started with Paul. I don't know AI very well, so it took me some time to build the character. When it came to animation, I had problem with animating his arms. The funny thing is that I didn't go through all the tutorial videos before I started the project, so I didn't know there was this pt.8 teaching how to animate the long sleeve version. So I actually ended up animating with the puppet tool( which I went to another class and some videos on YT to learn). 

There are still a lot to improve in this animation, but this is what I have now( without shading yet):
