Alienate people (AnimationRigs second annual animation contest)

Hey guys, I had entered the AnimationRigs second annual animation contest and here's my entry.



(YouTube link in case Vimeo doesn't work)

I secured a place as Honorable mention I (I'm guessing it's the fourth rank) out of 45 entries. And it means quite a lot to me since one of the judges was my idol CARLOS BAENA!Yay!!

It was great fun entering this contest, especially so because it was my first time making a quadruped act! Haha! Congrats to all who took part! Also thanks to all who voted for me for the Members Choice award, but unfortunately they removed that category due to 'suspicious' voting. And of course kudos to my buddy Sarath Thomas for the incredible lighting! Check out his tutorial for this shot here.

Here's a shot progression of the piece.



Animated in: MAYA 2011

EDIT: Here's a video compilation of the winners.

EDIT 2: The super awesome Mark Harris from Pixar did a super awesome review of my shot. It really opened up my eyes to a lot of mistakes that I've been making in my animations obliviously! HUGE thanks to AnimSchool and of course Mark Harris for doing this! :)

Quick sketches

Hey guys posting a few more quick sketches (old ones) done some two years back in Bangalore. It's an extension of this post actually. I couldn't find this sketchbook for a long time. When I found it today, I thought I should post some sketches from there. Had a lot of fun doing these! :)
