Hmmmm...

First off: new animation! A panther walk cycle.

http://www.youanimator.com/sweatbox/149772

Secondly: Our participation sucks! I was considering a weekly digest to remind people to visit but today I found a couple of sites that are doing exactly what this blog is intended to do; get a broad range of opinions.

http://www.youanimator.com (the sweatbox forum is specifically for work in progress)
http://www.11secondclub.com/forum/viewforum.php?id=9 (the personal work forum)

The point of this blog was to get a narrow range of opinions from people we know and trust but so far it hasn't worked so well. So maybe it's better to share our work on Facebook or the Facebook group, since most of us are friends there anyway.

But I also think it'd be a good thing for us to get involved in these two, existing communities, even though the vast majority of members seem to be AM grads. You guys seem to breed like rabbits :P But there are some working professionals involved as well, at least on the 11second club.

So we'll see if this blog survives but with less than five people using it on a regular basis, I'm not seeing much use in continuing it unless I can put a ton of effort into encouraging all 40+ of our class to actually participate.

Thoughts? Opinions? Silence?

bull_shit_v002

Here is the next pass of my animation.
Before character starts to speak I wanted to push that pose a bit further.I add some head movement and adjust camera a bit. And actually there is not lot of space to move camera without big changes to animation:(
I also try to fix hands to be more smooth.
There are still some things that I'm not happy, so I will try to polish it more.

all the best dudes

"The Suitcase" Second pass

First off, a lot of people have been invited to be author and a lot of people from the Gobelins class aren't participating yet, presumably because they forgot about the blog. So I'm thinking I will do one "weekly digest" post here with links to all the posts from that week, so nothing gets buried. Then I will send that list to everyone who expressed interest in the blog.

Back to animation:

I'm getting pretty close to done with this one, after getting zero work done last week thanks to GDC/Gamescom. This week I'm back in the saddle.

Hi Guys!

Nice to see great posts here and especially so constructive feedback.

Here is one short clip that I started to work in the end of the workshop.


The idea behind this shot is that the guy has made some jokes and he's girlfriend hasn't understand them in the same way.

I wanted to do everything in the "blank" scene and in a long shot so that I have to animate the whole character.

Next pass I'll add some frames in the beginning so that everything doesn't start to happen so quickly. I'll also add some overlapping especially to the hands. I'll also fix the face and the lipsync.


Before I'll make another pass I would like ask what you guys think.

The Swing, 4th pass

Legs redone during the swing; obviously they're more just along for the ride. Head and neck also redone mid swing. Some tweaks to the first and second jump, better staging on the hands during the crouch before the first swing.
