Hi Tommy, a good site I know for different poses is http://posemaniacs.com/... I practice gesture drawings from this site alot. Hopefully you can benefit from this as well. Let me know.

I found a simple ballTail_rigg and hereīs my first animation draft with it. http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5240460/New...2/balltail1.avi

My Boxman jump has also gone final with new clothes..

I found it hard to pose characters, if someone know a good site with lots of poses i would really love that.


Hi Tommy,
I really like the ball animation so far, nice obstacle course. One thing I would like to see is a side profile view of the scene so we can see the arcs clearly. Overall I think its coming along very well.

The boxman is also looking a lot better. The recovery looks much more clean and believable imo. As for the jump motion itself, I think it borders that fine line between making an animation look realistic vs. looking like something you've animated. I guess I'm describing the use of exaggeration in the motion. The jump looks realistic, but I guess I'm wanting to see some weight and force behind the jump. I believe Richard Williams describes the difference between tracing a walk from live reference and animating a walk using the principles of animation. Whenever they would rotoscope a live walk, it would look floaty, but when they'd add some exaggeration to the ups and downs, it would work.

Perhaps if you take the jump arc and make the descent a little quicker, you might be able to get that weight and power the jump needs.

Great work as always.

here is a revised edition... Thanks to some advice over at Polycount I got the file size way down so that it can be downloaded and scrub through.

Enjoy!!

Hi Ryan, the staging and blocking are looking pretty good so far, also a nice and simple scene. I think its good to see that you're making sure you're getting the spacing and timing for the animation right before moving on to the details of the tail/squash/etc. I'm not quite sure why the ball is changing direction during the jump anticipation though. It seems as if the ball is trying to build up speed, but backs off for further speed and distance, then makes the jump; but I guess it just seems as if it could use some more explanation.

Hi Drew!

Looks quite ok but I think itīs abit long. I would speed it up at some places and maybe not have the ball stop before the first step. Also the squashing seems better at the first step on the stair would like too see the squashing looking just like that in the begining of the animation too. Otherwise good work.

Thanks for the comments Tommy, you're right about the speed and the squashing.
