Smurfs Hololens project!

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.

Lets talk about footroll..

A look at how the FootRoll attribute on IK leg controls can sometimes trip us up when animating walks and runs.. and an alternative approach which can give cleaner results in some cases. I also demonstrate how I like to clean things up to remove the dreaded knee pop.

Still sketching..

Sketching every day, doing a life drawing class once a week and practicing at home the rest of the time, sometimes digitally and sometimes on newsprint. This is a digital sketch inspired by the villain in Saboteur (Hitchcock 1942).
