Jump for cgt

Uploaded by amritrd

View QuickTime (341kb)

This is final....I had to remove the first half (acting) part, where the guy moves from left to right. My bad, I didn't notice that the competition is restricted to 200 frames, and my first animation was over 260 frames. So I just had to remove the first part to accommodate the whole thing under 200.
There is some empty space at the left of the scene, because my camera was set according to my first scene, where the guy moves from left to right. I didn't change the render camera angle or I didn't move the camera because if I'd have changed it then I had to change the whole animation. So, I just left everything where it was....and corrected the errors.

I hope it looks okay!

WIP animation

Hey guys!

I've paused my previous "Dig it!" animation for a short while to work on this new jump animation for CGTantra animation session 7. Don't worry I'll get back to "Dig It" very soon and complete it for good.
Here's the 'work in progress' jump animation using the Sergio rig. I'm NOT done yet!! I'm still working on it and I still have to fine-tune the whole thing. There are a couple of stuff here, which I feel are kinda I'll just get rid of them. And I need to make better moving holds to add more life to it. So, I'm working on it. I'll be back soon with an update...I'm not gonna hurry, as I believe I have about 5 days in hand to submit this animation...and I think its enough time for me to fine tune it. Let me know what you think to make it better.

P.S. Don't forget to turn on your speakers...just playing with some cartoony sound files..

More with Plastic animation paper

Uploaded by amritrd

Howdy folks!

I'm just having some good time with plastic animation paper. I really wanna spend some time away from maya and do some sketching and 2d work. Well, don't worry, I'll soon get back to 3d. I remember when I first saw Jason Schleifer's PAP tests....I was like drooling all over the place! He considers himself a bad 2d animator!..but as you all know, he is not! He is someone I can call "disgustingly talented"! No wonder, I always try to animate like him!
