Wayne Dixon Animation Reel

Wayne Dixon writes:

I have recently collated an animation reel that was all done with Blender.

It includes an Bridgestone  TV Ad that was done with Red Cartel Studio's late last year,   It was animated by myself and rendered by Mat Ebb. All the Animation was done by me.

I also rigged the robot*, the bobble head*, the ball and I partly rigged the Lizard (I fixed some bugs and updated it so it would work properly in 2.5). The Pantin and Bik rigs were made by Kioppa, and the Rabbit rig is, of course, from BBB

*Sorry but these rigs are not for download

However, I am in the process of updating all the other 9 rigs I released last year. (I'm nearly updated them all to work with 2.56 and added some cool features).

Hope you guys like it the reel.

    Looking god Wayne. You have a great sense of weight and timing, I always enjoy your animation skills.

  • Gryphon

    Yay! The butterfly lives!

  • tidbit

    I don't want to go off topic but, I fear for our future.
    If the current generation of 9'th graders type like that, wow.
    Please learn to spell and use atleast basic grammar, hiren. Get off your dang cell phone and learn to type real words and real sentences.

    On topic: Nice animations. Really fluid and smooth. Springs are a pain, nice job on them.

  • hiren

    Lol. I will try to stop using mxit language.
    Will you guys please help me with tutorials please

  • Moolah
  • Gnuren

    @hiren: Try blender cookie and blender guru for good tutorials. And both youtube and wimeo has a lot too.

  • hiren

    Thanks gnuren what's the website for those tutorials please tx
    Do you mind if I ask for your email address

  • Dillbobaggins

    Wow great job! Keep up the good work!

    Off Topic:
    I agree with tidbit, our generation is in danger if thats how the majority of ninth graders spell.
    I being in ninth grade myself realize the importance of good spelling and grammar.

    Again great job on the animation! Im looking forward to seeing more.

    Hiren, I suggest you goto YouTube and search for "Johnny Blender." It's a series of tutorials that guide one through developing a character in Blender.

  • jay

    Very nice Wayne, and thanks for all the hard work keeping rigs up to date!

    If you had the time machine and you would go with it to the year 1940.

    Then you will find some local people and you will tell that the cities of america will be filled with people who has weird hairs, they have piercings and paintings on their skin and they will speak the language that is not possible to understand for the people of 1940 - they would laugh at you.

    You dont't even need to tell that you're speaking about their own grandchildrens.
