View Full Version : Paul Robinson - Animation Session 9 - Trap Shooting

08 August 2004, 06:26 AM
Ok so I have some basic ideas for this........whether I'll get it done (stoopid school work) is another thing but i'll try and get some of my ideas up here soon.

all i'll say is this:

a penguin

Heh... this should be a good one. :D

08 August 2004, 06:46 AM
heh.....i'm hoping so.........things always seem to get caught on stuff don't they :twisted:

ok heres the character i just knocked up for this....with a nice simple rig.....

just a nice little basic penguin

damn you are fast :)

Whats gonna happen to that poor penguin?

08 August 2004, 07:06 AM
ok....heres the basic idea....

its the penguin olympics.....all penguin athletes.....all penguin officials.....

i'm thinking maybe one of the penguin officials might get a wing caught in the trap launcher thingamy....and go for a little flight........

any thoughts?

EDIT: quick test pose for the shooter attached

Quick crit for the pose:

See the attached image.

your eyes were too far apar which results in the cat fish stare , when you get them a little closer like I painted in , you'll see it has much more personality.

Also drew over the arms and pushed the pose a bit , the arms need to be more curvy in those poses right now they look too stiff.

Hope this helps and keep it up!

08 August 2004, 05:25 AM
Great idea robo.....looking forward to this one:)

hopefully i'll be able to do it........i'm not much of an animator.....and i'm feeling a little out of my league around here but I'm going to do my best because this is going to be a kind of proof-of-concept for a school assignment

if you have fun and patience in making it, you'll be able to do it ;p
