Sideshow Accidents - talentless - Assie

Hiya everybody,
This post has been edited as I have finished the challenge. Here is my final animation:

My Challenge Entry 2.08MB .MOV

Here are a couple of grabs from the animation just to wet your appetite.

Shazzam, Barney and his talent.



Introducing, the monkey.

Thanks for the reply xchrisx, wow it must be good if you used your first post over all of the excellent work on here. Welcome to CGTalk.

Challenge update: I have built the environment in which it will all take place (including a table and a banana). I will start animating soon, and at the same time, i will build the monkey character which you wont see till later in the animation.

ok, little update

I have updated my website and now it consists of a wip section. the first wip is this very challenge, so you can follow this challenge over there too. Please also check out my homepage.

This is what the scene looks like now:


I also have a rubbish storyboard here.

Nice Assie.
Can't say much about the motion but the poses and camera look bad. You chose a straight angle. This leads to silhouette which is hard to read. So when holding the banana up or to his nose it is right before his body and you can't see it.

Here an example I found on google: http://www.spicycricket.com/SCA/SCA_anim3.html

Keep it up!

Thanks for the reply Milho,
yeh, I totally agree (I also got the comment that it looks like he is putting it into his mouth)! I'll work on this problem!

Thanks for the support! I am having trouble creating a good camera angle as well as portraying each of the poses clearly. What do you think of these poses:

camera position

i think that's g0od,if you giv the camera higher level!
that's better!
you can test it.
hope you the best!

The poses are better, but still I don't like that they are pretty "normal". I bet this guy wants to show off with the nose trick. So exaggerated poses will do better.

Best way for the banana in nose stuff would be to use a angle showing the guy in side-face. The silhouette of the banana shouldn't be covered by the body.
I did two examples which are probably not that good but I think they give a better idea of what I have in mind than my explanation. (hope you don't mind)

Cheers

i guess it may be too late to consider adding sum fingers to the guy, it would make your life much easier, i think, if he'd hold the banana with 2 fingers while showing it around and then stick it up his nose, u could even use a larger banana and then sum sort of FFD modifier on the nose to make it smaller as it enters the hole,. it just feels very akawrd the way he holds the banana.
but as Milho says, a better camera angle will defenitly help to identify the object and wot he intents to do with it.

dont give up
