Unfinished Work



I thought I'd post some of my recent unfinished work. This piece was a weight study. I have mixed feelings about this, but everyone I know says it looks pretty good, so I figured I'd post it up here. It still needs a lot of work (smoothing out), but I got sick of working on it so maybe I'll finish it up fully when I finish my lip sync. I'd like to add some more character to it...

I'm diggin it! The weight feels pretty good but I can definitely see some jerky spots that needs cleaning up. But since it's a WIP, it's all good =D

Ciao!

Oh and when you render out of AE, premultiply your alpha to remove that nasty black edge around the character ;)

there are a tiny bit of jerky parts, and the right arm has a bit of stiffness to it. but they are hardly noticeably with how natural the movement of everything else is!
i don't know why you beat yourself up so much about these little exercises. they are really good and fluid. you're no professional yet, so don't limit yourself by being a perfectionist. you have some great animations that speak for themselves.

Thanks for the comments guys. I'm so sick of working on this. I hope I get the renewed enthusiasm that schleifer recently posted about to work on it again after this next piece.

Hey Dan. Really good job. :D I do agree about some little jerky parts and his right arm is a bit stiff, but I'm sure you'll get to it since it's still a WIP. :D
