"If you cannot bend the water slowly and gently, you will not be able to bend the water sharply and quickly."


-----
Finally finished rendering the rest of this clip of a waterbending test.

To those who aren't aware, Avatar: The Last Airbender has some pretty cool inspirations from the traditional Chinese martial arts, while watching an episode, I recognised some of the forms/postures they did in waterbending, which take their motions from Tai Chi (namely the Single Whip/Water Whip).


So it sparked my interest in trying to composite some effects into live footage.
As a first quick n' lil test in effects within live footage (on a whim too), despite missing things like some tweaks, I'm pretty satisfied how it turned out.


And yus that's me doing the waterbending here, as an animator I feel I need to not only know animation, but also feel it sometimes. Some call it acting ;P


Had fun, nevertheless. Hope ya enjoy. :)
Take care, be safe

Final part of our Ski Free 2 series of cutscenes :D
Best all-nighter ever. I now sympathize greatly with ~Fiend-Factory, editing after no sleep is terrible @_@ Since he had a mega math final I had to do the editing this time, not without the help of everyone elses' sleeplessness.




YES THE MOUNTAIN SCROLLS THE WRONG WAY D<

This is an animatic for a 15 second animation about an escaped convict on the run.

I've noticed that the quality is low after uploading the video file and when viewed it skips frames.
Here's description of animatic to fill in for missing frames:

Escaped convict enters, running in from right side of frame up to the crates.

He spins around startled to hear police sirens then hids behind crates.

Police car zooms by and then the escaped convict exits on left side of frame.

Tools used:

Maya 8.5 (Environent Model)
Photoshop CS3 (Characters Sketches)

Another animation for my class. It got me a little more familiar with the running cycles, but I still need tons of practise. While doing this project, I realized that I wasn't ready to animate yet. There are so many things that I don't know about animation, about movement, anatomy of the animals, landscapes, camera angles, etc. . .I couldn't have done it without the referance and I felt that I needed guidance and advise.

Oh, well here it is :)
