View Full Version : Animation: Siggi the little ant

We created a little short, non commercial, for a fathers friend.
It was created using XSI 3.01 and the toon shader.

Crits welcome, have a good time.

Nice cell work there. My only crit is the movement of Siggi and the characters seems a bit stiff and robotic. Poor Siggi alright and cool animation:thumbsup:

Hmm. sad that there's so little response. :(

I thought the movie was pretty cool. The Cel Shading is really nice and I thought the story was cool too. I actually anticipated him running to an anteater at some point. Its nice to be wrong :D

I like it!

:applause: :applause:

Haha, Goro is on the run again. Good to see you here.

The whole project took 8 weeks. 4 Weeks pre-production and 4 weeks for the 3D stuff inclusive rendering and compositing.
For us it's definetely a new record.

Thanks Cyborgguineapig and TheGreenGiant for the nice replies, I try to be faster next time, but our currently project s*cks the time out of our lifes. Stay tuned for "project Noah" (title is not fix yet).

project Noah - Production Notes (
Maybe the team will post a thread some time.

Have a great week and keep on posting critics for poor little siggi.
You guys are great. :wavey:
