View Full Version : Study on davy jones head and tentacles

10 October 2007, 09:53 PM
After 3 months working on this, is finally done!! i tryed to recreate a rig system that allows manual and simulated animation for tentacles. NOTE: Around the time where he says "All your deeds lay bare..." tha mouth moves without dialog, that is to simulate some jerkiness of old men speaking style, as it was done in the movie. --the process can be seen here here is the result. (click on the image to download the animation) (

Hey, the movie is a very very slow download I dont have to finish. Sorry man. I do have to say that the making of is very impressive and it seems that you did a great job creating a relatively easy system for the tentacles. I'd still like to watch the added movie, maybe upload it at Youtube? Thanks!

Thank you all for your replyes, some of you guys have noticed the lips and jaw of the model shakes around the time where he says "All your deeds lay bare..." , that is to simulate some jerkiness of old men speaking style, as it was in the movie. thank you again for your replyes.
