Walk


Hello fellow Monsters!
This is my first post here. I'm also trying to learn this amazing art form like most of you here and I'm at the beginner level.
Here's a walk I've been working on. It still needs a lot of work but I thought I'll post it to get some comments and to know if it is working.
Walk
Waiting to hear you comments and critiques!

my dad's new spaceship

hi guys, this was my FIRST EVER 3D project when i joined takshaa bangalore (this was even before Fanatic). it's my solo work and i was kinda JUST ABOUT getting used to Maya (and as is somewhat evident from the clip, i ENJOYED the animation). VERY amateur stuff, but i still hope u'll like it! (asking for too much i guess! lol)

btw i've used toon shaders cuz my deadline was sorta creepin up on me and UV unwrapping wud've taken up half of my lifetime!!!

fanatic

hi guys! i'm pretty new to this blog! and seeing all the BRILLIANT work done by u guys scares the hell out of me!!! lol, well this is my 1st post. i did a small 3D project with 2 of my friends (prahalad and pratyush) for my cg advanced course in takshaa. i was responsible for the animation (and the character design & storyboard amongst other things!). on this clip i used whatever 2D animation knowledge i had (since we werent taught character animation in takshaa yet). well it's pretty amateurish ... but i hope u guys enjoy it anyway! :D
