here is what's left of my christmas cheer

i think this santa is highly influenced by a guy i play walleyball with. he's a little rough around the edges, the only difference is that his tattoo is a big, red number eight.

Blocking for skull thievery

Here's a small preview of what I'm working on right now and I thought I put it on the blog and get some feedback before going into more breakdowns and polishing the animation. It's rough right now because I want to make sure that the emotions are clear and the idea is playing out right before i get to far into animation. One guy makes 3 attempts to get this skull. Each time he fails he gets more frustrated. This is attempt 2... Check back in a day or two for more progress

UPDATE: attempt #1 (blocking as well)is the right video

It's time for some animation!

Here's a run cycle I started about 3 years ago. I wanted to try my hand at a 4 legged creature. So I modeled this dog, rigged him up and started him running. Anyway, I always wanted to go back and tweak a few things here and there with the feet push-offs, the up and down on the body and some of the secondary motion, so I did, and here it is.

drawing in a meeting

I think the drawing on the left is inspired by my late 4th cousin named Harley. He was born with a cactus for a left hand.
