for the lighting, rendering and hosting. And Francis Pang for the character design. Thanks guys

Here are some Stills



Here is the animation


Hey J, When i saw this as a 1st draft i thought it looked finished, ( was quite impresed) then you went and tweaked the hell out of it and now it’s top class!!

Nice 1


It looks cool but I think U can twik it a litle bit having the guy act like trowing a brik when is talking aboutt it and having it muving his hand like a knife when is talking about chopping it up;)


Very funny character and great acting animation.

Good job :slight_smile:


Yo John, rendered version looks cool mate! I like the bump mapping on him too :slight_smile:

Whens that short film coming out :wink: ?


a beer to the 1st person who can name which film the line is from :slight_smile:


Well my friend, the line is from the movie named “Royal Tenenbaums” which starring Gene Hackman and Ben Stiller. And the voice in this animation is Gene Hackman’s voice. :slight_smile:

By the way, thanks but I don’t drink beer.
Except here :beer:


Alright bud, sweet ani, saw this quite a while ago now and it looked sweet then. Not sure if you’ve tweaked the animation since then or just had it rendered, but the render ads a nice feel to it. However, i think the render is a bit dark especially when the puplis dissapear into the shadow. I think this hides a certain amount of the acting, and doesn’t let us read the character fully.

Nevertheless, another fine acting peice by JL :thumbsup:


thanks for the comments guys i’ll see to it that things get changed i’ll keep you updated :slight_smile:


You ask and we supply!

Here’s a lighter version - hopefully you can see the pupils a lot easier now - I’ve tested this out on several monitors and two TVs and it looks fine now I hope.
