(VIDEO) Mantis Rig Shot Update

video
Hey guys! So, I've been working on the Mantis clip I posted a few days/weeks ago. After some advice from friends and instructors, I changed the camera layout and I re-did the ending. It really wasn't working. It still needs some smoothing out, and the legs/arm arcs still need to be tracked, but it's coming together.

Mantis Rig

Hey guys! So, I've been messing around with my schools rig. It's called Mantis. For the most part it's pretty good. It's got its issues, but what doesn't? ;) This is not finished, but it's getting there. Body mechanics has and I think always will be the most challenging part of animation for me. It's mentally taxing because I spend hours and hours redoing the same 20 frames, over and over again. Then to finally look back on it and realize it's still wrong. But hey, we do it because we love it!! Haha, Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukXkTveXhJU&feature=youtu.be
