Bowling Ball Lift


Just done a lift with a bowling ball, thought about using IK on the arms but the control system is a bit weird on Alfred. I think this means the arms do tend to float a bit but I've tried to rectify this by putting in some more key frames using the ghosting tool.

Pleased with the body shapes on this though, and a little acting in it as well with the hand flex as I wanted to make it a little different.

New Catwalk

Right, just done a new catwalk, after looking at some of the students work on Friday night at the National Gallery, I had a real Eureka moment and realised about the hold on the hips. Hope this is an improvement.

Run Cycle


Just done a quick run today, quickened the pace from 60 frames for 6 steps down to 55 frames. Think it gives it a bit more speed (obviously!). Used the graph editor a lot on this to get foot positions right, and the feet should arc into position and not fall back onto a spot as they're planted so overall I quite like it. Crits welcome!

Sneak and Catwalk Walks

Right folks, latest, just got back from France, and am now trying a sneak and a catwalk walk.

So here's the sneak after Edwin looked at it, will post the catwalk when it looks vaguely half decent! Again positive criticism quite welcome... thanks El for saying you liked it full stop.
