Haven't got to my Pose-A-Day yet, but wanted to throw this quick test i did yesterday up to the interwebs. There's definitely some polish left to do if i go back to this, but it's not really a reel piece so we'll see... It was mostly just a quick body mechanics exercise. I would like to do something with this rig, but i wanted to test him out first. I saw more than my share of fat people on my cruise to Europe, and have been itching to animate a fat dude since then. This was just trying to get a feel for the rig and see if i could pound out a decent walk cycle in a day.
Feedback, as always is more than welcome!
Here's my first animation pass at my Robot Fight Test. I switched to spline tangents, broke all my key poses down, and started solidifying my basic timing. spacing and arcs. Still aways to go polish wise, but this is pretty close to what i envisioned. Feedback is most graciously encouraged! Thanks everyone!
Here's my first pass on a quick Robot Fight Test. This is still in rough blocking, so timing and posing is most certainly still under scrutiny. Feedback is most welcome. The camera move is still rough too, and i didn't pose stuff to camera in the second shot yet (as i didn't originally plan on it being a 2 shot.)
Would love to hear what anyone thinks!
Animator, artist, musician and all around pretty awesome guy.
