3Dmaxwalk ... now with arms!

I hope people can see this. :o Tried to make the arms move and the head bob a bit, but I'm still having trouble with it I think. I need more practice with splines I think. I tried to even it all out but I'm sure there are unnecessary points in there for the arms.

Let me know if you can't see it.

On a side note, how many of you have started your building thing? I took pictures and thought about it but haven't worked on it yet. I think I will regret this later...

ACM215_HW7 - The rotating fruitbowl! :o

So due to many problems, I wasn' t able to turn this thing in on time. However, after Kaveh helped, I was able to finally make the animation! Yay! Let me know if the link doesn't work for whatever reason though. ^_^

I don't think you can see the controls so to play it back, I guess just refresh the page.. unless someone can tell me why it's not showing up.

"I shake my little booty on the catwalk!" :3

EDITED:: I hope this works now. I just reloaded the side view though, even though Linda said I didn't have to since we'd have to redo the walk cycle anyway. *shrugs* Click the link below and let me know if it works. >.>;;


This is an attempt at the 3D walk cycle. I had trouble with the foot on frames 8 and 9 because the toe would curl. I got some help from a labbie though, and instead used the rotation when the foot lifted until it touched down again. Here's a side view and front view.

If I have more time, I'll tweak it further.

iRobot... wait that names taken. >o<

So far I haven't posted my 3D images yet, but meh, spur of the moment I decided to post these. They could do with more tweaking when I get the chance. Right now, I'm busy with my basket of fruit. x.x;;

So, the order I made these in was: The window pic -> the swirly falling down purple pic -> the grass pic -> the close up sunset pic -> the bird pic.

I need more practice with lighting me thinks. ><;;

Simon's Cat

So while trying to find "The Bastard" on youtube, I saw on the first page this other short animation called "Simon's Cat 'Let Me In!'" There was another one in it as well called "Simon's Cat 'Cat Man Do'"It was pretty cute and funny, so here it is:

'Let Me In!'
'Cat Man Do'

Expressions revision and 3D ball bounce

Well, I don't know if it's successful or not, but I changed the arms so that they uncross later on in the animation:

And the 3D ball bounce is also done. I think I need to play around with it a bit more when I have the chance though. For now, I'll post this simple one:

It's late right now, so I'm going to sleep. -_- zzzzz

Expression Change - Homework done EARLY? WTFFF?? o.O;;

Did my homework early this weekend since I'll have to work on the maya stuff for a really long time... x.x;; If I can, I will add more frames to the end of it to make her movement slow down to a stop better.

For the first frame and the 4th frame, I just used premeire to hold the frame for longer. I wonder if I'm allowed to do that or if I'm supposed to draw the same exact frame again.... o.o;;
