First off, thank you all very much for the great comments and crits.
xbox - I used Maya
neiy0 - you’re not the only one actually, most have said the same thing about his claws. I was going for cartoony, but it is bothering far too many people, so i’ll work on making it more concrete.
glennyP - I used a good set of bones, and then a stretchy rig very similiar to the spine of the other characters. It’s not perfect for there are errors at the end if the claws and tentacles are too short, but i’m no rigger.
jearley - yea, he’s just pleasantly walking I do plan on making him angry as well, a quicker more angsty walk.
Ben Barker Buddy! - It is good to hear from you, I hope to hear more of how you are doing with everything. I am quite proud of my secondary motion hair, tie, and glasses and am glad you noticed. I’m quite pleased with my hair rig.
I am actually, within the next week or so, am finishing up my Boy Genius short I started awhile back. I decided to go back and redo, revise, and add to the animation i had before. It’s interesting how much you learn in a quarter when you reanimate something and give it more life. This short deals with otto and Spidey in a classroom, 4th grade or so setting. It will be a blast and fun to watch.
Again, thanks for the C&C.
