Super Saver's "K class"



This was my entry for the "11 second club" April competition.
Animation done in Maya, with AnimSchool's Malcolm rig and rendered in Mental ray .

There's a nice contrast in the audio track between the characters, one more
contained and natural and the other more exaggerated, just went along with that
 and tried to animate them as such. The scene also called for camera movement,
which turned out ok.

Cyborg Ant Mascot

                           
                         
                                         


Mascot character created for Tecvidya (web TV company in Brazil) , The 3D character is an upgrade of a 2D version that I had done myself a year back.
The Character needed to convey work and Technology, that's why the Ant and the spacesuit,
With the 3D version I wanted to simulate a bit of "Iron Man" and "Transformers", so turning the ant into a cyborg made perfect sense, possibilities are endless for animation this way,
Multiple and changing limbs would be an example, Hopefully I can show some animation in the near future.
