Well, today was the best session I ever had for animation class. We finally know how to do a walk cycle! Hahaha. Yep, big dreams. It's been fun, and we've been given a series of sieves we must pass through to get to the end of the series of projects, and I'm glad to say that I've already done the first one! I still have to have it approved by our teacher though, but I have high hopes. Har-har.
Here's a look at what I've been working with:
The character, "Bik" is a copyright of our professor.
All we had to do was animate the already-rigged mesh. Yep, If you noticed, I was watching music videos, looking at references, and rigging all at the same time. (That video is Bridgit Mendler's acoustic version of her song "Love Will Tell Us Where to Go". It's a great song.)
This is my usual setup when I'm working or doing homework on the computer. I can't NOT have music - it's just plain boring and it makes me sleepy after just a few minutes. Sometimes, I even take breaks and watch movies (if I'm confident enough about the whole task) if my brain's starting to fry.
I'm not sure I can post videos about this character which isn't mine... but I'll see. :)
