Week 3 & 4 - Maya Springboard

I didn't do week 3!! OH NOS!!

Here's a quick recap. I've been working on How to Cheat in Maya, but have been struggling a bit because the 2012 files wouldn't work with Maya 2011...poop. I also got a book called Drawn to Life from my fantastic broseph! Thanks bro! Now I'm just waiting on Simplified Drawing for Planning Animation to come in the mail :T

The past two weeks Mike Gasaway has been teaching us workflow methods. Part 1 was planning and Part 2 was blocking. And Mr. Amazing Tech-Person, Jay Epperhart, taught us a bit about using the graph editor to bounce a ball. Thanks Guys!

This week's assignment is to create a bunch of random objects on a shelf. It took about 35 min. so I thought I'd add some color and a rig I got from Creative Crash called Buckid. It's a nice simple rig for beginners like moi.

Here's what I came up with:

And a couple closeups of my little guys

I really should do more, but I have to turn it in ASAP so my Maya Trainer, Kelly Perez, can take a look at it before our Q&A today! Ack! Alright, time to get back to work!

Happy Animating!
