Ok another Hulk post, but this is the last for a while. I did promise a process vid, wasnt sure if I should, I mean, its just a walk cycle and I struggle accepting the oversight on his sliding feet. I did make an adjustment but the difference is marginal. It feels like his feet are sliding rather than steping. Maybe I should retitle it to "Hulk SLIDE"
Going back in to try and fix it (again) wont make me like it anymore I think. I also feel like I should have implied more weight to the head and upper torso by adding some overlap, clean up is abit messy, volume issues..... the list goes on.
Anyway there are a few reasons for doing this. I know how much it helps me to see other peoples processessssss, so maybe someone starting out can benifit from this. Also people who are a lot more experiecned than me can perhaps point out my flaws or offer me better ways of thinking.
I'm also mentoring at my old uni, this is my 2nd year doing it and I think having examples where I can break down my process will help my mentee, SiuLing undersatnd things better. Trying to explain animation with just words is difficult, I mean its a visual medium, so for me less talking, more showing. Something I wish I did with my last mentee Mr Karl Lawson.
With this video, I thought I would do the perfect breakdown going through every part of my process. Didn realise how difficult that would be, explaining it properly would probably mean the video would need to be 5mintues rather than one. I think i may try to record my next piece of animation as Im doing it. Or something.
I'll be updating this post maybe tomorrow, explaining each part as "I" understand it because I'm still learning and not entirely comfortable with "my animation process" Below is a pic showing the same frame from each process
