BASKETBALL!!

hey guys! how's everyone? it's REALLY been quite sometime for me in this blog! lol! and man so many posts!! AWESOME!

well coming to my post, wowowowow!! i LOVED this exercise!! reason one: i dont really play basketball myself (infact i hardly play any outdoor games or sports). so it was quite a challenge to GET into the character of a basketball player and animate this shot! reason two: i discovered how COOL basketball actually is!! seriously! i'm now a fan! michael jordan is a legend!! :D

well so here's my final assignment for the second semester: SPORTS! and this is probably one of those FEW exercises where i've actually stuck to the required time frame! lol! do give in ur C&C.

third semester HERE I COME!! :D

btw i still have to put up the weight lift assignment here! i havent really done justice to it, so once i finish REWORKING on it, i'll put it up! ;)
