First 3d Walk Cycle

After spending what feels like an age trying to rig sadbot properly (still not there yet) I was jonesing to animate something...anything!

So thanks to the guy at

I got hold of Easyman, a premade rig, from

After playing with the turtorial in my book, and much experimenting this weekend with serveral rigs/models i found easyman the simplest to make do what i wanted. Managed to create this in a couple of hours this evening.

I think i might add some movement in the face/mouth but one step at a time! had forgotten how much i enjoy animating more than just pretty patterns. I'm probably more excited about this than I should be, and its a simple exersise, but hey i gotta start somewhere.

any tips/constructive critism are as always welcome.

So little sadbots story need putting down on paper, plus i hit a confusing brick wall in maya, got frustrated and took my revenge on my PC by spending hours using just pencil and paper storyboarding. Here are the first 4 pages, don't want to give anything away about the story just yet. the ending isn't done yet, but that isn't a problem...

back in maya land have resolved my "issue" by deleting the arms and legs and starting again, and decided to stop being lazy and am halfway through giving sadbot knees, elbows and more articulate fingers.

so much to learn, so much to do, a big towering mountain above me, filling my mindscape (well occasional silly ideas tries to divert me but without sucess, later badger later) atleast its keeping me sane.

Finished modeling-ish

finally got round to finishing the model. fine for a stationary model, still got to texture the little dude.

slowed down a little as an idea for a short for him has sprung into my mind, storyboards will be appearing soon!

New adventures into the unknown

so am attempting to build sad lil bot from the previous post in Maya, using it as a way to learn to model, texture, light, rig and might take some time! but heres what i got done in 5 hours today, with hangover. this i feel will be a frustrating but fruitful project...many angry nights i think.

Indie Pixie

a little breather from learning maya from scratch, used faithful Kuler to get a colour pallet and have played with overlaying some textures....yes i have left her eyes blank. the singer girl its now loosely based on was utterly into her performance..hence blank eyes.

Crystal Castles

Just a quick sketch i did on the train the day after seeing the Crystal Castles in Birmingham. prefered the support acts but the lead singer was a weird dark little pixie girl. Might work on this another time into a finished image...maybe
