Roo!

This kangaroo was modeled by a friend, Keen, and is my first rigged character in Maya. So to test it I thought some jumping would be a good start

Intro to stages

As a final project for my third year will be making a showreel so I will have something to leave with. The project consists of three stages:
Stage 1 - types of cycles, e.g walks, runs etc
Stage 2 - Mimed animation, which means two acted pieces with no sound
Stage 3 - A dialogue piece and animal character piece

So hopefully this will explain what each stage is about.

Dialogue piece - Stage 3

This is my dialogue piece for my stage 3 as part of the major project, its currently in working progress. The dialogue is from "Rumor Has It" and features a couple at a table in a airport cafe. The guy is feeling a little down, so his partner comforts him and then it kicks off from there.

I've worked on this as much as I'd hoped so far, the good thing is I'm happy with the camera setup and shots. So now its just time to put in the details.

Dog & Rabbit - Stage 2

As part of stage I wanted to animate more animals so I animated a duo of a dog and rabbit. Basically the puppy is lead to a hole in the ground where his ball bounced into, he is surprised to find a rabbit in the hole and only wants to play with him. However the rabbit isn’t having any of that. I was going to have the rabbit bite his nose so the dog shakes it off, but it didn't seem such a nice idea.

The animation is still in working progress, though I'm pleased with the results so far.
