Promise render frame

Getting better at rendering.  Here's the look I'm going to go for with my "final" piece of "Promise".

Promise render frame

Ok, so I haven't posted in forever, but life goes on :)  I took a break from animating for a while to focus on my new life, things have been going pretty good on the east coast.  I have recently been working on fixing up some old pieces.  I'm almost done with "Promise", had to clean up the curves, they were so dirty I wanted to cry.  Now I'm working on some polish with the hands, may go into the face afterwards, but since I hate rendering I wanted to set it up now and as soon as I'm done, I can just hit the render button and move forward.  I thought the lighting looked pretty cool, so here's a frame, the colors are a little dulled in this image and there's a couple spots that need fixed, like the light under the door, but that's for another day.

Deal - end of workshop

Here I am at the end of the workshop.  It was fun :)  Still got some work to do on this piece though.

Deal - week 13

More.  I have been told I need to bump up my confidence on these and make decisions before waiting for the critique.  I'm going to try to take that to heart.

Deal - More cleanup

This week's attempt.  A few body and leg tweaks, cleaning the head and worked on the arms, but they're giving me a hard time.

Deal - working on the body

Yeah, about a week late to upload this, but this was last weeks, working on the body.  Gotta fix up my mechanics.

Deal - Body clean up

Cleaning up the body and the head now, haven't touched the arms and body still needs a little work I think.

Deal - Root Clean up

This week I focused on cleaning the root, didn't touch anything else, so the body is really poppy and a mess right now.  I worked a lot of the TY, I'm worried it might be too much, we'll see what he says though.

Deal - Second Blocking Pass

Not too terribly different, wasn't feeling well this week so I didn't get to work on it as much as I would have liked.  I broke it down further and fixed up some poses.  Onto splining!

Deal - first blocking pass

Just thought it'd be fun to post the steps of my current animation project - before notes!  I always like looking back at what I did and where I went wrong, so here's the first pass pre-notes.

Promise - idk what pass it is anymore . . .

Just gotta get it approved and rendered now.

"Promise" Third pass

Just thought I'd go ahead and post my third pass here.

Promise second blocking pass

Just thought I might post this since I haven't posted in a while.  This is my second blocking pass, the reference is on the side for comparison.  I have been trying to observe it really closely and see what makes it alive and make sure I get the body mechanics right.  I have a long ways to go.
