Animation 3 – OLD MAN Blocking 1

Before I started animating, I needed a cane to work with the animation and the rig. So I quickly 3D modeled a cane. I was afraid it would not animate properly so I made a rig Christina showed me back in the beginning of this course

I also put up a marker on the screen to track where the cane was placed during animating so it would stay in one place. I used 3 screens to do this: Screen #1 had the reference videos, Screen #2 had Maya window with the animation itself, and Screen #3 had a teared off camera from Maya looking over the cane.

 

The Animation itself

As for the animation itself, I started following the frame counter on the reference videos. I blocked out the most important poses to fit in the animation itself. Although I overdid myself, and I made the blocking stage much more complicated than I was supposed to start with. Because a blocking stage should increase in detail over every WIP. But I just went head on and made the first wip really detailed.

This is the first WIP of my animation.
