Also, I know it totally doesn't make sense they are standing outside the robot when they should be piloting it, but I had to draw the characters. It was stupid because the grid we had to do was only set up for birds eye perspective, but given the nature of giant robots, I knew it'd look better/be easier to draw worms eye. So I had to invent a fake ground plane, and cut characters off at the knees, which kind of ruins the whole aim of the assignment, which was to ground characters on a plane. If that is why I got points off, I'd be pissed, because it was my teachers suggestion anyway.

Inspired by true events... in my own life. o.o
My final project for animation class. I slaved at least 50 hours on this baby, and I'm still not fully happy with it, but I can't stand working on it anymore. I don't think straight up 2d animation is my calling. Too much revision! At one point I had to redraw 50 frames because I got too off model. Ugh.

My final for fundamentals of Maya...I modeled, rigged, and animated this all on my own. The only guidance I really had for rigging and animating were the videos on Lynda.com (thank god for those) I basically did everything twice before getting it right. The walk is funky, but I've never even done a 2d two legged walk sooo yea. Obviously I am going to have no idea how the timing for a quadruped works, haha. Anyway, I feel like I accomplished something. It took a lot of work.
