(Edit 2)Final?? .......ummmmmaybe!!

Hey guys! Here's an update....I think its final....ummm....maybe!! I wanna make it final, because now I really don't have time for this. There are a lot of room for improvement, and I could have done a lot better than this. Well, I did my best to finish up with this 19 second animation in about a week. And now I'll have to submit it soon! I don't care about the results! hehheh.....Well honestly, I do care, but not that much! Believe me! hehehe... I've learned a lot in the process of making it, and thats what really matters!

I'll cook something better next time...I promise!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Blocking UPDATE 1.........

Hey guys! Here's an update to my blocking. I've changed a couple of poses, but I'm still working on it.......



still working hard to make it look good .....heh...

Hey guys!

I'm still working on my CGTalk animation. I didn't like some of the poses, especially that stupid thumbs up pose. So I'm getting rid of the junk which I created in my previous blocking. I'll be back soon with better stuff!!

Here's an article by my friend Raymond Ross: Texture and Contrast in Animation. I'm sure you'll find it interesting.

CGTalk Animation Session (WIP) : Loses at roulette

Hey good folks!

I've been working on this CGTalk competition animation (Loses at roulette
). And I'm almost finished with the secondary breakdowns....I guess. It was not that easy for me to time it, as there was no sound or music. I had to depend a lot on my imagination and some references. So, I played a lot with the timing....and now I think it looks...ummm... okay. But I may still change its timing a bit to make it look better. I would also like to add some more character into Scotty! Yes, his name is Scotty. I've worked a lot on the character of Scotty. And I've written a little story too on this character.. his likes and dislikes, intelligence, education, profession, goals, dreams, talent, culture, addictions,....etc...etc..... I'll write down everything in my next post, so stay tuned!

Oh yeah, I've removed my previous post. As the walk I made, looked like crap. There was something wrong with the toes. Thanks to Mr. anonymous (from Pande Maharashtra) for pointing out that mistake. Thanks dude!

Hey guys!

Yesterday morning I started drawing thumbnails and planning the scene. And today I'm done with it! YEYY!! I think this time I was quite fast! The credit goes to Keith and his power packed VTS...and Shawn Kelly for his cool Animation Mentor Tips and Tricks newsletter. I hope you like this animation... and I still have to improve a lot. Thanks a lot to my friend Ramtin for making this cool Moom rig!
