Advanced 3D Animation – Self Critique


This semester I have learned how to rig a model and have improved in my ability to animate a 3d rig. I have seen the bulk of my growth in this final group project. I have found that I feel very comfortable leading a group, and I have come to terms with the idea that I am not as bad with character modeling or UV mapping than I had thought I was. This summer I intend to improve more by creating the “memories” animation that I had pitched before. Even if it doesn’t turn out well enough for me to add to my portfolio, it would still make for some great practice. And even though this current final project isn’t coming out so well, I have learned so much from being a part of it that I am actually very interested in leading another if I get the chance. The biggest mistake that I have learned from is to not let people handle things that they know nothing about. And to never take their word for something. If someone cannot prove to me that they are capable of something, then they should never be put in charge of making whatever that thing is. These may all be somewhat random and weighing more heavily towards learning in the end of the semester rather than the beginning, but that’s just how things turned out.

Advanced 3D Animation Peer Critique – Andrew Scelta

Andrew Scelta’s Emotions animation has a nice set that easily establishes where his character is. The animation is pretty fluid and his character has expression. We can see what scares the character, and the level of scared that the character expresses seems realistic.

I only have two issues with Scelta’s animated character. His face freezes about halfway through, staying stuck on this closed mouthed emotion of worry; Although the eyes blink, none of his other facial features relax or readjust. My second issue is directed at the character’s feet. The jump seems off because his feet don’t set up for the hop, and then his left foot (foot on the right most side of the animation) becomes dead. These issues set aside, Scelta’s animation is well rounded, fluid, and interesting enough to make you want to watch it multiple times.

Cody Rig – Murderous and Trepidation

Using the Cody Rig I animated a short five second skit of a dog murdering his play toy and then becoming worried and scared that his toy broke.
