3D ball splat animation

Hello, hello!  This is my first semi-decent animation in Maya.  I just started animating in it and it's taking some getting used been working on a few tests and working out kinks here and there.  It's not as intuitive or as flexible as 2D but....once I get the hang of it, it will be a truly awesome skill to have.


  1. Nice work. How long did it take you?

    1. Howdy! Thanks Ben! This is my 4th animation and it turned out decent, so this one took me less than an hour after getting the hang of the graphs. We just started the whole animation thing on Wednesday afternoon :) Not long! :D

  2. Is that for an assessment in your class or just practicing with Maya?

    1. These are exercises that are required to be handed in, in order to pass this assessment. That said...these exercises are just preparing us for the actual animation assessment that's going to get done some time next week...

  3. What are you animating for your assessment?

    1. Sounds like its' going to be a ball with legs, interacting with a ball with a tail. All animations that look any good will be going up on the blog :D

  4. Ball with legs? Nice :) Mike Wazowski!!!!

    1. hey! I didn't even think of that! CooL! :D Thanks ben!

  5. He's the funniest ball on legs I've ever seen.

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

Hello! Hello!  Some news!  I was on TV a few weeks back, April 07 to be precise, to represent Moshi with Christien Clegg and Dale Andreson for Space Chickens!  It was really good fun.  The hosts Lauren and Andy were super nice.  I was quite nervous, there wasn't a lot of warm up before filming and it was all very spontaneous.  We were advised to just run with any mistakes made. smile and just have a lot of energy!

Dale and I had a couple of draw offs while Christien refereed and described Space Chickens and  animation.  There were some really weird topics that we had to draw for the last segment, I had to draw a chicken doing taxes on the sun (with Andy) and a Pelican doing the lambada on a shooting star. We only had a minute each for each drawing.  It was crazy to say the least.  I did enjoy myself though.

The pictures below were taken by our Producer that accompanied us to the shoot!

In the first drawing,, where we had to draw the chickens, I was like grabbing colors to color m…

Howdy!  It's been a while since i posted anything up on the blog.  My bad. I've been super busy with one job after another and I WAS doing a few drawing challenges too before I got overrun with work.

For news, I finished up with one of my animation jobs last Monday, started work at one of my regular studios on Thursday and we're working on a cartoon movie for DVD, did drawing and freelance illustration in between those days and caught up with a friend, somebody was being a jack ass on the tram and I let them know it.   Rob and I also watched Logan, a great movie and I would totally recommend it.

Today, I did a bit of work, received text from one of my employers about more work and we're about to enjoy the day in a country fair.  Well, if we make it in time.  I also cooked up pancakes this morning and it wasn't a disaster.

Our kitty Hanzo (changed from Dorian) is causing a lot of mischief and he likes to eat electric cables.  Guess we have to find something to stop…
