November's Challenge

It November 1st and time for a new challenge. For this month the pantomime animation challenge has been chosen and the verdict is: Pushing/pulling a heavy object. Use your time wisely and good luck to anyone who chooses to rise to the challenge.

For anyone who doesn’t know of a site to host their WIPS I suggest trying Vimeo or Youtube. They are both very reliable video hosting websites and most people have access to them.

The Rules Are:
  1. Make all the WIPS in Playblast form, then if you choose you can create your final piece in a more robust renderer (NOT necessary, you can still post the final with a playblast).
  2. All animations should last at least 10 seconds long, that way there will be more clarity with what is going on.
  3. All animations should last NO longer than 12 Seconds.
  4. All participants must show there work-in-progress before posting the final.
  5. DO NOT add any audio.
  6. HAVE FUN!!!

Here's the first pass of my push animation. I'll keep working on it and probably post more in the future.

Well I started my animation already and I am now starting to think that I should have planned the action a little better.

** I don't want to go back to the drawing bored!!!**

We will see what I can make of this one. At least I already know that I learned something from this project. PLAN AHEAD!!! Lol

Hi Parikang, I am happy to see your participation in our challenge as I am sure the rest of the participants are. I hope to see more from you in the future.

As for your animation, I see a lot of motion in the hands when they should be planted on the box, but I am sure that I am not telling you anything that you haven't already noticed. So good luck on completing your animation this month. I really like what I see from you so far.

Here is my first Blocking pass for this month.

C&C is welcome I will be cleaning it up as much as possible through out the month.

Thanks splinter for your comment and critic and I will definitely fix the problem in my next post.
And I liked your blocking too good going!

Hi Bobi877 I really like what I see so far in your first entry. The only thing that I could think of, is around the 8 second marker your character is getting up and I think it would help more if you had his line of action in the pose be in the opposite direction. It might help make the rise from the object feel more natural. Although you might prove me wrong in your next post. Either way good luck I hope to see your animation in the "Finals" Thread.
