Jekyl to Hyde (Change in emotion)

  • An animation displaying a character transitioning from one emotion to another, this piece is meant to display realistic human reaction and an understanding of human facial expressions. In this video, my character transitions from a neutral expression into a terrified expression and then back into neutral.

  • This is footage of a little girl being scared that I used as reference to help identify what parts of the face people use when expressing fear.
  • This is a video demo of a 3D interactive body model that I used to study the muscle sctructure of the human face. Better understanding how the face muscles function helped me more accurately animate the face as a whole. Skip to 3:14 in the video to see the facial muscles.
