Hey all,

I did this piece as a gift to my bosses. They collect stuffed animals and use Jingles the Reindeer on their christmas cards. I went one further and did this. It was heavily inspired by one of my former classmates (thanks Dinky). I did all the modeling, rigging, animation and lighting in about a week. (

It's a 2.5 mb windows media video file and you'll need
windows media player to watch it. You can get the
latest version here: (

Crits welcome and appreciated.

Merry Christmas!

heh thats cool. What I would have done though would be to have more variation. I'd make his hands move around a bit more, ie don't only hold the card for the entire animation. You can have one hand holding the card and the other doing some sort of expressive thing (that all singers do when singing). Moving around the stage a bit more would have been good too.
Still, I like it.
