Fantage new animation style

This is what my team at work has been up to.  Really up-ing the animation style compared to what we used to do.  Its not perfect but we're learning and the kids seem to like it, so this is a victory for us.  I'm proud of our team :)

I'm sure I'll post something with my individual scenes sometime, but I did the scene with the zombie on the screen, the kids being chased by zombies and Agent Scarlet's close up dialog.

hands splining

Splining Splining Splining

This is proving to be quite the challenge for me since the hands are all IK and I've got some gimbal issues.  No finger clean up yet.

Edit:   JD's shot review:

Sadly, after all this, I decided that the gimbal issues were too much to deal with and to restart with a cleaner version using FK and an "Extra Axis" script given to me from Jacob Gardener to keep it from gimbal locking.  There will be more curves to clean, but hopefully I'll know what they're all doing and I'll be able to make this a better piece.

Cat Jump Render

Finished tweaking my cat and rendered it out.  I wish the texture on the cat was grey or brown or something besides black.  Black is hard to render and show the body.  I tried and I believe I failed.

iAnimate Anniversary FlashBack

So I was listening to a podcast yesterday and they mentioned that its the third anniversary of iAnimate.  Hard to believe I've been at this so long.  Specially for the anniversary, here's a flashback:

My Sept 2010 reel submission to iAnimation to get into the workshops:

My first iAnimate progress reel (I used really bad music) :

I've come a long ways but I still have a long ways to go!

Hands blocking

My current project.  Felt this needed to be done in stepped mode.  I don't know the last time I did anything in stepped.  I'm enjoying this.  Its really different than what I normally do.

First Painting

This is how my first painting ended up.  Since its my first, I'm fairly happy with it.  I think I needed to get this out of the way.  I learned so much doing this.  Hopefully the next will turn out better :)
