My 3D Walk

I got my 3D walk done Yay! \o/
After several attempts I finally managed to make a walk that's similar to my own walk.
It was tricky to get it not to look like a robot and making the arms and hips sway right.
I'm actually quite pleased with this one because it makes me feel like I'm making progress when it comes to using Maya.

2D Walk Cycle

This is my second 2D walk cycle and I think it worked out well.
After failing a couple of times I finally got it to look a bit like my own walk.
I think it would look a bit more smoother if I put in some more frames, and I'll keep that in mind in the future.

2D Walk Cycle

Moving on from Mr Cubey to something more different – Walk cycles.

They’re fun to do, but tricky. Making the walk look right is not as easy as it sounds.
Here you have my first go at a 2D walk cycle ( yay \o/ )

The Love Dance

This week the assignment was to make Mr Cubie jump, stretch, squash and so on in Maya.

I was reading a comic about seahorses and how they do a dance every morning to express how they feel about each other. Thought it was a nice thing to do, and that's what inspired me to do this animation.

My first animation

Did my first 2D animation this week. \o/
The assignment was to turn a circle into what ever shape you wanted using 12 drawings.
I chose to turn it into something I’ve been looking for since I moved to England.
A Norwegian cheese carver! (Obviously impossible to get a hold of here)

It was great fun making this animation, and all though it’s not top notch animation I feel a little bit proud.
And I’ve learned that when you’re working with animation like this always remember to make the letters inverted…
