Sword Pull - Sick Day

Well........ Heres a test I threw together for my sick day yesterday. I had a nice fever and a nasty cough, sore throat. I hate being sick.....


so heres the story of this anim......I told myself I would construct a set as quickly and sloppily as possible...{20- 30 minuets}....and create a cool armor which will fake a new character for a new world....{Im bored of all my tests having the same backgrounds}...................that all went well....so

........It started with a headache and the toughguy skinny........I start animating and about 100 frames in his leg broke and I had to scrap the shoot.....That should have been a sign...



so next day Im totally sick......stay home from work.....i get bored and cant stop thinking about the anim.....I decide to make Poundworker the new knight.....I swap out some armor that wasnt created for his body and started animating.......it all was fairly smoothe.....except I had a really hard time concentrating...I was really working as fast as I could...{shows in the sloppy arcs}..........I would go in and out of fever...especially under the hot lights.

but I told myself this is just for fun.....its not your film....so dont sweat it.

and this is what I have......a fun test...to share with you guys....and a new experiment in speed and fever animating.
here it is......
for some reason....when I exported it to small size it became very bright....if any of you guys know of this problem...please let me know.

Dude, you are SO freakin' talented. I've been thinking a lot lately about animators who are really able to act thru their puppets, and I'm starting to think it's a gift that people have to greater or lesser degrees. You, my friend, have it in abundance.

Awesome work, now go to bed and get well!

Kick ass, Justin. I agree with McG, you have an anointed gift for animation. With your talent there's no limit to what you could achieve.
