Walk up the steps... Jump off the steps!

video

I actually did this before the previous post. Again,
just mixing up a walk, and adding a little jump off.

Walkin Of a Ledge!

video

Another little exercise, with Lt. Dan. The thought
be hide this was to do a simple little double bounce
walk, with a cartoon drop off a ledge type action....

Moom Walk

video

This is a small walk that I did this afternoon. Out of
the full biped characters I've animated walks for, I like
this one the best... It seems the most complete out of the....
Two? Yeah, well this is the second I have posted, there
have been several failed attempts, but its all in the plus
column!

This rig was made by Ramtin Ahmadi, I wish I could
find a URL, but no luck... You can google Moom
Characater Rig, and you'll find several different verions
of the character.

Mind Powers

This is a small exercise I did today... I wanted
the character to look like he was crushing
something with his mind, kinda Magneto ish.
I'm ok with it so far, this is the second go at it...
You are seeing the better of the two.

You! Bring it!

video

This is meant to be a little taunt action.
I like the way it turned out, this is a more
simplified version of what I originally had
in mind, I like this one much better.

Second Animation

video

The is the second animation I did with Tim Oberlander's
Basic Guy. The exercise was to make the character start
slow and end fast. I decided to do a little sneaky step with
with a fast ending with some jiggle do to the ending.

Run and Jump

video
This is a little animation of the Basic Guy jumping
over a gap between two buildings. Over all I'm pretty
happy with it, the landing could be better I think, but
it will do for now.

So who did the characters????

Glad you asked!

The characters are made and rigged by two different individuals. Lt. Dan (the blue two legged ball guy) was made by Matt Ornstein, you can check Matt and all his awesomeness at http://www.mattornstein.com/demo_reel, he's quite amazing to say the least.

Basic Guy was made by Tim Oberlander, you can give his goods (demo reel) a look see over at http://timoberlander.blogspot.com/, he's quite dreamy as well.

!BAMF!
