Hey thanks for your comments guys, much appreciated.
Wow Anna had a look at your portfolio, great work. You have exactly the feel I am trying to portray, working ‘large’ on a small scale. Lovely work, thanks for the comment.
You’re so right Nenad, the walk cycle is all screwed up for the character and the weight. I’m still learning the art haha. With the rush I built a very rough rig (BAD idea) which ended up being hard to pose. Dunno if I should go and rebuild…I’m tired!
Yes New Zealand is a creative place, small, we have maybe 4-5 million people, and Lord of the Rings basically turned the whole country into a Hollywood set. Everyone knows someone that played an Orc or rode a horse in the battles. It really kicked off the effects industry and Jackson has been great in building on that.
Thanks again Gilles, I’m embarrassed of the mistakes compared to pieces like yours, but new to this, have learned a LOT.
This is a breakdown of some of the scenes. …hmm should I rebuild that character or not eek…
