A little behind-the-scenes from a piece I animated for The Sexy Brutale game by Cavalier Games/Tequilaworks.
Hey.. you use what you have, right ?
I don’t shoot reference for every action I animate but I’ve noticed they usually turn out better when I do, even if I just use them as a jumping off point while blocking the main poses/timing.
Cavalier Games hired me to rig all of the characters and props for The Sexy Brutale game. Once I had that done I got to do quite a bit of animation for the game too, here’s a reel showing some of that work. Hope you enjoy it!
I can finally show the results of a recent job featuring both iconic characters and cutting-edge tech! I rigged all characters and animated the plant and dragonfly character and my friend Virgil did the awesome Smurf and Gargamel animation.
Our game is still in development but early previews are starting to appear now. Most of these are online but nice to see one in print too, in this case in the current issue of Official Playstation 4 magazine.
I rigged Shadow the cat for the online animation school iAnimate and wanted to try it out on my own shot so I also rigged the free BB8 model from getwrightonit and put them together. Hopefully people on the internet like cats.. and Star wars. 🙂
Really great clients of mine, Tiny Inventions, have released a really nice short.
I did the rigging for the characters for this in C4D. It was an interesting job as the faces were 2d images animated in a stop-motion kind of way that were rigged to follow the 3d characters. The short is a hybrid of CG and photographed sets and models.
