Though I'm a 3D modeler, and the skills I'll be primarily demonstrating with my thesis, and demo reel, are modeling, texturing, and lighting, we are doing a bit of animation for my Head Sculpture & Facial Expressions class. That's why we've been working on all those blend shapes, and all that rigging! (Blend shapes are part of the modeler's job, if anyone's wondering. Rigging is generally not.)
So yeah, that cool head I've been posting? It's going to be MOVING soon! I'm using a clip from American Beauty, so Creed will be talking in Kevin Spacey's voice.
Now that I have all that, plus the hair for the head model done, I'm starting the animation! I'm really excited about this. It will be a fun project, an interesting departure from my focus.
Anyway, I'll share more on this as I get it done.
Here's the text book we're working with in class.
