Agouti patootie

Agouti WIP2 from Lachlan Creagh on Vimeo.

More progress-
Latter run cycles look better now.
Also walk fixed a bit and tried adjusting head to see how it looks with head down- I think they walk more head down....
Also start of idles- leading out a bit mechanically as yet on need to look a bit more 'thoughtful'

Make it snappy

Snapping turtle from Lachlan Creagh on Vimeo.

Another render-  of snapping turtle to have a look at the later anims I 'd done to see how they look.
This has extra WIP authenticity because I forgot to hide the biped bones....sigh
Anyway, I'll render it again ...
Some of the swimmy, eaty ones looks ok.

Model by Rob Mangano, animation by me.

Agouti WIP

Agouti from Lachlan Creagh on Vimeo.

Agouti model by Rob Mangano.
A render of the max file as I am working...
Immediately I sat down after rendering- I could see in the sped up run bit the back legs needed fixing as they come through.
Well I still hadn't staggered them to one lands before the other- also hand't fixed the front legs as they take off such that the fingers don't go through the floor....
thought I better check it out and fix the big stuff first.

Thing with the walk is- from the footage I've seen they either trot everywhere or when they do walk they take about 4 or 5 steps then freeze then start of a few more steps...etc
As opposed to just walking along steadily.
Also the run is just a blur in the ref with the feet planting lost in the grass/leaf litter.
