Ok,..I normally don't do this but the audio clip is too enthralling ; )
Here is the rig I am using. It's called 'PackageMan', from a friend who got it off the web. I believe.
One month, huh? Looking foward to finishing it!:scream:
peace out

First roughs, just to get a rhythm down that's decent. Lotta work left, I know, like overlap,.blinks,..etc,..figure ya'll wanted to see in-progress stuff early anyways.
Okay, disclaimer done.
Hope the link works

btw,.it's 4am here and I just saw that movie, "Forgotten", and boy howdy,..I wish I did.

Thats a very very nice start Tony!

I especially like the part where he says "now I swear.."

I think you can turn down the pose a bit when he says "primates" Doesnt really fit well with the rest of his "I am cool , I am on top of this" poses. Other than that , bring it on :)

The first part is really really good, very nice. But I must agree with SheepFactory, the primates part doesn't really fit. You could make him look like he's seeing something really disgusting, since his hands are already kind of in the right place. You could make him, move his upper body back a little bit, make his hands in a such a gesture that says" Eeeeee, I'm NEVER gonna touch THAT" Move his shoulders back a little bit and make him look a bit disgusted and looking at the primates with a side-glans. Someting like that might fit better.Now he just crouches all of a sudden and you're all like:"hee, wadidhe do wadidhe doo!!!"

Yup...I agree...I'd like to see a different pose for primates. Other than that...I think you've captured it pretty well...keep it up:)

K, primate crouch is gone. I'm gonna tinker with the 'ewww, dont touch me' thought, which I kinda started already.
Thanks for the comments, it's feeling much more natural!

Here's the latest:

Kudos to whoever made this rig, I am really enjoying it!

that smile before he freaks out makes me laugh everytime :thumbsup:

Hi Tony,

great work so far ! :thumbsup:

Some very minor crits:

1. The head turn when saying '...swear ...' looks a bit too fast/too long, maybe the head should be turned more towards the camera when saying 'Now I...'.

2. The pointing pose when saying '' should stay slightly longer, until he finishes '... primates ...'.

Looking forward to the next version !

The movement in "the next one of you" when he starts to put his finger up to later pull it back in, I don't like that. I think it's he computer's interpolation, but I don't like it. Be sure to check that out, he jus moves his hand and back up in a really awkward pose :hmm: thought I'd mention it :D

Ok,.update time, I know I've been putting this off,..heh **(Updated alittle)**

Pretty far along with the opeing line. Second line coming along, here's my latest pass at it. I am liking the 'touches' and "kill ya' part so far in blocking.

Alot of great anims out there! We gots two pages of entries now! Woot!
Oct23 is sneak'in up!

Its looking really nice man! Cool Acting! Keep it up.:)

Looking pretty good, but, you should check out his but/hip rotations. I mean the z rotations, you know the rotations towards the front and back? He makes some stranges twists there, like the end pose? I guess he'd fall over if it was posible in real life. :D You should take a close look at it, besides that, it looks fine :)

Next version:

Cleaned up, "next one,...Primates,."
Added a more dramatic "Eeeeven,.." feeling disgusted.

I know what you're talking about with the hip rots at the end. I plan on fixing it when I reach that point.

Here is Ver#5.
This is most likely my last update here until it's done so speak now or forever hold your peace : )

Thanks for all the crits so far!
