Mancandy announces Durian from david bolton on Vimeo.
I submitted it for the upcoming Festival but not for the competition, but Bassam, being the moderator for entries, suggested entering, so, I have under the 'Character Animation' category.
Have a look, see what you think.
First comment =D
Nice animation ;D
Well, that's just plain funny. Great work with the animation as well! ;^)
Awsome and Creepy at the same time. :)
Good work. The Duran Duran thing is the best part.
I love the way you made his eyes expressions look alive. Great job. You little Bast------ ;)
Brilliant :D . Great animation work...!
Really good facial animation there! Great job!
This was hilarious! Plus you had great animation and very believable facial expressions! Well done!
LOL - very funny. I hope the humour of Durian is something I could show to a class of kids without getting parents backs up though. These Open projects should be a good classroom resource when the schools can't afford commercial alternatives.
OMG I loooove it HAHA :D
Impressive modeling and animation!
LMAO!!! Just nearly fell off my chair laughing.
Good animation and lighting, I laughed :)
It's oracle not testicle, you bastard!
Haha, well done! This should be our official trailer!
Great animation, I like the way Mancandy looks older, also his eyes were touched up? 5/5!
Great! Voice matches animation nicely, and both are well done. I especially love the "you little bastard" part :] it feels so natural!
ahaha :DD so funny...
LMAO that is amazing lolz. "and it's oracle not testicle, you little bast-"
Kind of reminded me of the opening of HalfLife 2....
Brilliant... Excuse me, I need to go and change my underwear... :D :D :D
Very nice animation, the expressions give life to the character , I like the rendering/lighting too !
Thank you, nice to see you like the work.
Blenderguy2008 - for the eyes I altered the material that was already assigned to the iris colour. Then did a UV unwrap on the whole mesh using seams, separated the head UV's and applied a colour texture to the head. That is all that is on the head, just colour. Then added the hair, which gave me the most trouble to render I'll have you know - futtocks! Now there's a new expression for all you children to use in the playground next week. Todger, yet another...........no, I'd better not get carried away, or I MIGHT get carried away, Ha-Harrr!
"...and it's oracle, not testicle."
Great funny animation. Well done, David. Nice changes on the mancandy. Looks very good.
Keep up the great work!
Haha, cool!! :) Good luck!!
bravo David, very good animation, lipsync was top noch!
It reminds me a bit the famous fake "teaser" of the movie "comedians" from Seinfeld.
Geez, I just fell off my chair with laughter. :) But here's the weird part: then I fell off my chair with laughter again - without getting back on the chair inbetween! :D
Totally awesome! The facial movements, the skin, the beard... Everything is beautiful! Congratulations!
Doooood!! That was brilliant! Great: script, foley, lighting and animation. Please do another one!!
hi hi hi ...:)) good animation :)
