Mechanica

I love these little magnets, they're not very strong though....fun to play for an hour anyway

Life drawing at Sculptors...






A bit wild and woolly because I'd had a glass or two of wine and finding it difficult to care about anything.
Couldn't determine if model was Loretta or loreena
..... anyway I've drawn her before- twice I think.

Turkey knows its Christmas....

And is running.

I think model will need to be modified or swapped out for a version with flappable wings so it can fly ingame.

Flockin Birdies.....













Jive Turkey

Turkey walking animation by me....

guess who did the model/bones...?
Milenko

A little bit of skinning funny business on the legs I can see(which I didn't see because the bones were obscuring it.).....anyway.

Hard to get the feel of the legs when the feet are solid paddle type things-
 so you can't do the foot spread when they contact....





Fox on the run...

Foxy

fox_walk from Lachlan Creagh on Vimeo.

Animation by me-
Model/texture/bone by Milenko

Hmmm tail is kicking a bit- needs a bit of rotation up the tail to smooth it a little

Might need to lift the back feet as they swing through just a tiny bit

Run rabbit run

hare_run from Lachlan Creagh on Vimeo.

Did this run before the hop- again couldn't get the curve of the back/movement of the hips right.
Its way more extreme the way the hips move on a hare- but the biped has its root around there- so any wild moving/rotating has to be compensated for by adjusting the free legs (sliding key feet stay still but theres not many foot contact periods) and the spine....
Possibly if I try again and animate the biped root thing first then the spine and then do the legs I might get it right-

Hare today- gone tomorrow

A hare hopping animation by me.

Model texture bones/biped by Rob Mangano and Milenko

Arrangement of bones in the hip/biped root bone thing made things tricky- has to be an approximation  because its nothing like the flexibilty of the hare (like cat really).

Elk walk

elk_walk_fixed from Lachlan Creagh on Vimeo.

Animation by me,-
Model and texture initially by Rob Mangano-
with a bit of texture tweak and replacement bones by Milenko

*edit*- bah I can see a stray key as the front right foot is about to lift.....
I'd stuffed up as I was shift copying keys in max- basically keys weren't unselected when I moved some different new ones and messed it up and didn't notice til a few saves later- then aw it an tried to sort it....obviously missed one bit.
I'll fix it and repost
