Well, on to my second post ever on CG Talk... :)

i wouldn't really call this "Finished" work, but i'm not gonna do anything else with it for a long time. this was for my Intro to Animation class my first semester. the assignment was to design, model, rig and animate a robot.

picture hosted somewhere else... it should work now

and the animation, which i know is not very good (linear keys, some general wierdness), but it was by far above and beyond the actual assignment. he expected more like r2d2 rolling around... *shrug*
