j.a.r.c

This is an animation practice thread created for four young animation students from Dawson College. Their names are Jafarius, Andrew, Robert, and Carmy. This is an one year training. Throughout the year they will work on many assignments. Let's see how they improve during this year.

General instruction:

1. The instructions of each assignment will be given out on 1st and 15th each month.
2. The deadline of the assignments are 14th and 30th each month, by 10 pm.
3. where you want to upload your animation is up to you. but we need to be able to see the animation in this thread.

p.s. If you stay with me for a year, that's 2 animations per month and 24 animations in total.

Assignment 1, july

Heres my submission for this assignment! 1, 2, and 3 second loopable animation, all done in maya using the robo rig form creativecrash.com

I'm up first! Here's my submission for tomorrow:

I combined the two animations together. I found the mesh in Rigs Arena, didn't like the rig (3d studio biped), so I rigged it myself.
