Hi there! My name is Emily Plassenthal and I am a sophomore studying Animation and Drawing as a Double Major at Bradley University. I am originally from Vandalia, Ohio, and came to Bradley for the opportunities it offered.
In my free time, I like to draw, color, read, write and play with my dog. I enjoy learning different methods and techniques, not only for drawing, but also for animation. I have also learned that it is okay to fail, because mistakes and failure helps you grow both as an artist, and as a person.
I love to see how far I have grown in just the few short years that I have attended Bradley, and I can’t wait for what the future holds!
I completed this 2D animation in fall of 2017 for my 2D animation class. This animation was assigned to specifically study easing, follow through and overlapping, and solid drawing - three of the twelve principles of animation. This was created using pencil, paper, a DSLR camera and Adobe After Effects.
This was a piece for my 2D Design class in the fall of 2017. This piece uses only the lowercase letterform "o" as a method for creating value. Like stippling, where dots are used in varying density to create a range of values. This was created in Adobe Illustrator.
This piece was a dedication to my grandfather, who loved to fish. This piece was created in late May of 2017. I love to work with colored pencil, so working with this piece was exciting, especially when applying different textures. I created this piece using Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Watercolor.
