View Full Version : Scared Bug

04 April 2010, 02:43 PM
Here's a little shot I'm thinking of putting on my reel. Just an attempt at creating realistic bug like movement and behavior. Rendering is very basic, certainly not my expertise. Eager to hear feedback, thanks!

Nice stuff. I would say that it is hard to tell that the bug feels scared when he runs away. He lifts up his body and arches his back which makes him seem aggressive, not scared. I think he needs more of a timid, defeated pose.

Thanks for your help!

Actually once he's up on the hill I was going for aggression. Like when an animal that feels threatened shows aggressive/defensive behavior. (Like a rattlesnake) I'm wondering whether that's reading, or if it just comes off as me trying to animate him scared and it looks incorrect.

Perhaps I shouldn't have titled the thread "scared bug" as scared isn't the only emotion I was going for.
