Football vs Rabbit


Title: Football vs Rabbit
Company: Meindbender

Hi, this is an Meindbender test animation.
The goal was to get the same kind of feel that stopmotion has with Maya.

Holy crap. That was simply the coolest 3d animation I've ever seen.

How long did it take you to make that?

Awesome! I didn't read your post and just downloaded/watched it and until you had the wireframe shot in the end I thought it was clay stopmotion!

"Holy crap. That was simply the coolest 3d animation I've ever seen.

ANSWER: the modelling shading was done in about two days and the animation was done in about one week. Thankyou all for the feedback!

Take care

HAAAAAAAHAAAHAAAAAAA!!!

This is the funniest character design I've ever seen.

My first thought was 'how did they do that??'.. When I realized it's all CG I was blown away.

So how did you get all that detail on the rabbit / background?? And is the rig for the rabbit really complicated? Cause he seemed to be able to shift forms just like real playdough in a stop acition film..
