Now, since we don’t want to upload every single scene in youtube before the whole thing is finished (there are some things I can’t wait to show you, tho) but we do wanna give you guys something every now and then to keep you entertained and in the loop – so to say – I decided today to give you a peek behind one quite a long scene you might have seen before. Wow that was a long sentence.
Everybody I know hates animating long walks (even people who are not into animation have that disgust hidden somewhere deep. I know. I am a Psychonaut). And since I’m not everybody, I tend to take things even more seriously so I really really loath doing those and would give one kidney to a poor Malesian dude for getting long walk-animations and all the rigging jobs I need for the rest of my life from him. That is a reason I really wanted to cheat in doing this walk-to-the-fridge scene that was quite important in building the suspense before things kick in to high gear. (I’m not really that passionately against animating walking, but rigging I f*cking hate. Quite coincidentally I ended up doing zilch rigging-wise. [cue sarcastic laugher])
I think I did a pretty good job – especially if you think about what you see in the finished scene compared to what you can now see in this behind-the-scenes-kinda clip, thanks to me.
So here we go.
The final scene (which actually goes on a bit too long):
And the retarded version:
How’s that for breaking illusions?
