new anim in progress

R3| this just wasn’t working..the character was pivotining too much on a central access, so I just threw out the last half or so and did a fresh blocking pass, thanks to all the helpful feedback…

EDIT| took another pass..retimed a bit, redid the feet..took a refining pass at the torso and pelvis…
ok..just for more practice, another weight test…first pass so far…

over the hedge

May 16th, 2006 1 comment

last fall I did some animation for the over the hedge videogame. I haven’t seen it yet and have no idea what made it in our out, but here’s a few idle animations I did of Verne. I can’t wait to see the movie..based on how fun these characters were to animate, it should be good!

ok..just saw it and oh man was I impressed. Enough people at work were grumbling about ‘another talking animal film’ so that I wasn’t expecting much, but it was a masterpiece of comic timing. The character of Hammy alone is worth the price of admission. It was also interesting working on Verne with no reference other than the trailer, to then see how his character was handled.
