Animation: 2 Options

Hello all.

I've animated two endings to a brief character piece, but I'm not sure which direction I should take. Only the last couple seconds of the two are different.

(Sorry, only Cinepak playblasts at the moment)



Which ending sequence is stronger? That's primarily what I'm looking to answer. Both need more work, but the general idea is there. However, feel free to comment/crit on the animation all around, not just the ending. I'm all ears.

Software: Maya 4.5
Audio is January contest at 10 Second Club (I may submit, if I can ever decide which direction to take!)

hey Amo77

I like the WITH pet .. because the other character responds to it..

the right foot, during the first step, it goes trhough theground..
After the 1st step, it slides before it takes off.. check the tangents.. and again for its last step it slides..

other than that, I like it.. I've see different animations for this audio file this month, this one is one of the best so far.

good luck

Thanks for the input. I appreciate the compliment, too! I looked into the tangents on the feet and I'll change them accordingly. Good call. Unfortunately, I spent most of my time on the end for this playblast.

I got some interesting feedback over at 10 Second Club, so I tried a THIRD version. This one includes the pat but moves everything up a bit.


For reference, here are the other two again:



Let me know what you guys think. I'm gonna pick one of these sequences and tweak it up.

Thanks again.

Definately version 1. Version 3 is too rushed and does not give Harry time to act, which makes him a prop, rather than a character.
