  1. Wow, I missed this. Robert told me to look. Very nicely done! I love the style and the movement of the chararcters.
  2. I saw it on YouTube before seeing this link... Very cool and thanks for uploading it.
  3. Welcome back!! Cant wait to see that bear dance around!
  4. Ok finally, Hans is now rigged with TSM2, weighted, and ready for the contest. Video was horrible so I will reshoot this weekend and try to get started applying the video to the character.
  5. Through the years I have created 60+ characters, animals, props, autos, buildings, landscaping and trees, mythical creatures, and many other models. It has been a fun adventure using AM. Here are some of my favorites with Tornado.
  6. I had created a number of Supers for the Cupid Sick Day Mythos Agency. Mythos is the staffing agency for super heroes when they can not work. Here is one of the supers, Tornado. Being from OK, I thought he was appropriate for the theme. He was rigged with the 2008 rig and this is without weighting.
  7. This rig has kicked my butt. From starting over twice to duplicating bones, to goofing up the concept to flat out giving up a couple of times. Robert has encouraged and coached all along the way. Add in travel and illness, a house that flooded from a washing machine malfunction, family events, I have forgotten how I did a lot of things. For now the rig has been a valuable lesson but it is time to get the contest model ready, I am watching several helpful videos to complete the contest but for now enjoy a happy Hans.
  8. Here is an update. Rig has been flipped and weights still have a long way.
  9. So, to say things have been chaotic is an understatement. But I will say coming to the computer and getting away from the world has been a blessing tonight. I have worked on Hans and have created a hybrid rig from Barry Zundel's rig, David Simmon's Squetch Rig, Mack Chappell's Saucy rig and a little of Robert Holmen's ideas and my own. I have just about half the rig in place and about 40% weighted. I am getting Ready for the motion capture contest.
  10. The last 4-5 weeks included a trip WDW and then work at a part time facility turn into overtime. Mix in two weeks of tooth ache followed by oral surgery, a little dash of flu with a pinch utter fatigue and don't forget an ear infection that lasted 4 weeks. I have done nothing except watch a few animation videos. I did tweak my old man slightly. But now that I have decided to move forward and feeling better
  11. We made it back from a trip to WDW. Came back feeling exhausted so I slept in this morning and this evening started back on AM. worked a little on several things. Finished the grumpy man's body and clothes
