View Full Version : Dominance War V - Animation - AbysmalParadox - God of Destruction

04 April 2011, 09:25 AM
Just found out a new dominance war is out, and they have animation :)

The god is fighting his way through a portal. Think King Kong aggressively trying to fit through the middle of a big rubberband while being dragged back by cords. He rages his way though. Slowly claws his way to the object on the other side with increasing resistance.

Storyboards - I tend to only storyboard a few strong poses. It always take on a life of it's own. I will play with the camera in 3d space. Also flip the storyboard horizontally, left to right. Haven't figured out how I'm going to do the portal. Probably a background plate render and masking.

Rigging - Rig is 85% done (forgot to rig the jaw, will troubleshoot the weights after posing the character, may add morph targets for more expression if time permits and if i decided to do some closeups)
Animation- Tested the rig on a walk cycle,

Critiques welcome
