A short I worked on between jobs. I plan on doing more with other square type characters, the simplicity of it all allows me to wrap up different little ideas quickly.

Hope you enjoy!

Very, very nice work. I love your visual and animated style!

May I ask about your setup for the animated facial textures, I'm always interested in the different ways people do those. :D

Thanks everyone!

For the faces I just made all of the expressions I knew I needed, saved them each as a separate image (face_01, face_02, etc.) and then did an image sequence texture on the character. Then it's just a matter of setting a key in the texture attributes on which number image I want to be using.

It's not the most flexible set up but it worked for me.

Awesome! Thanks Michael. That's kinda what I thought you might have done. Very cool! Great work mate! :D
