monkey animation



here is a blocked stage of my monkey animation.

it is very small at the moment, but i wanted to give an idea of all my movements with a still camera. because the monkey does make use of a lot of space, i may have to consider different/ multiple cameras. but hopefully you get the idea here.

here is the finished version to my maya jump cycle, i have used the andy rig, downloaded free on creative crash.com. created by john doublestein!

monkey animation


i have blocked out my scene for the monkey animation. this is only the first pass; i will update with the second pass, which should be a lot clearer and smoother in animation terms!

monkey animation


its been a few days since my last post, however, i really have been pressing on with more character animation. i want to create a scene that gives enough space to freely animate a lively character! using a monkey rig, created by wade ryer , i want to really take advantage of space. using quick, sharp stretched movements, as well as slow, gradual, squashed poses, i hope i can produce a really nice dynamic animation. i will set up simple apparatus for the monkey to anticipate and react to. 
i want to bring the monkey into my scene with a run. here are some examples so far; ill be trying to get a fast run finished first, i do not want the monkey to just be standing in the space as my scene begins....make it interesting yeah!!!!!
