I am Ready to Talk Now!-Basic Lip-Syncing Exercise



The lesson will begin to cover the very basic foundations of developing a character head and lip- syncing a short clip of audio to it. This particular example will focus on the two dimensional sketch, preperation, and design of phonemes for use in a final digitally created project.

Included are examples of the beginning drawing exercises, preliminary student designed head sketches, and finally the students digitally produced projects (the digital process is not covered in this lesson).
