Animation Practice

A final edit of my cliff jump here, I still need to play with the lighting slightly but the animation is pretty much there.

Animation Practice

Here I tried a few different run cyles, its quite hard to see from the video, but there are slight differences in each. The heand and shoulder movement is lightly different, as is the tilt of the hips.

I used this to help me decide on a run cycle to be used before the jump. putting each beside each other helps you recognise minute differences and the overall effect they have.

Animation Practice

This render shows I've got a little further with the fall, however the main reason for this render was to test the water. I don't have a mental ray light in the scene yet so the water isn't shimmering properly yet.

I took a render here to show the initial jump, its quite difficult to see as there is no scene elements, but I'm trying to 'squash and stretch' the character as he jumps.

Animation Practice

A final render of the fall, I'm particularly happy with this one as the character looks down just before he trips, the landing is also good as he bounces slightly. I need to add lighting to the scene but aside from that I'm pretty happy at this point.

Animation Practice

This render shows most of the movement finished, however it will still need polishing. need to look at lighting and camera angles too.

Here is most of the fall without the landing, this perhaps looks a little bit fast, also some of the hit points with the stairs need playing with. overall I'm happy with the flip over though as this was quite hard to achieve.

This shows the scene in its current state, I'm fairly happy with it at this point. The scene needs lighting properly, I like the flight and how the body reacts to wall, however the landing could probably do with a little bit of bounce as the character appears to fold to the ground.
