younger kid model from short

Hey... here is a quick snippet of the CG model for the younger kid. It's pretty crazy to see it go from drawing, to clay sculpt, to CG model.... it'll be even cooler once I actually get him rigged and moving around.

another rig test

So after making some adjustments based on the walk cycle, I did this little test.... The rig is really starting to come together and I'm feeling confident that it will hold up well in most cases. I've just got a few more adjustments to make to it and it should be good to go.

short film character walk cycle


So I've been pretty quiet about my short film... primarily because I've been juggling a few hundred things, but I decided this weekend to take a little break from camels and programming and did a quick rig test in the hope to final the rig for this character. I found a few things that need some fixing and skinning still needs lots of work... I also made some basic changes to his design that you probably wont really notice but it makes the model a little easier to animate.

The next thing with him will probably be more elaborate than a walk cycle... just gotta make sure I iron out all the rig issues first.

camel design

Hey! Never drawn a camel before, so it took ALOT of drawings until I got to this. It's funny looking back on the first few that I thought were cool and realizing how bad they were :) I'm contemplating turning this into a sculpt, but I first want to draw the body and maybe do some expression poses.

latest sculpt...


Here is the latest sculpt I've been working on... I was thinking of maybe smoothing this one out more and maybe casting it so I can duplicate it. Hopefully he'll make his way into one of the personal projects I'm working on...If you look closely, he's loosely based on one of the sketches I posted earlier.... Next up... a camel! :)
