"I just completed an animation of a bumblebee for a microgranting project. I'd love to share it with the blendernation community, and if there is interest I'dÂ love to share the rigs and write up a tutorial of some aspect of the production."

I love when the bee dives into the pedal near the end. Got a good laugh out of it. Good video! Good to see a good video for a good cause.
Super cute and very well animated! Please do write a tutorial about the production of this animation - I would love to see the rig for the bee :)
Very nice indeed ! Clean and simple yet powerful.
Please do share via tutorial.
Very nice work! Loved it!
Really nice. Very clean, well designed. Great pace and feel. Would love a write up on it.
Cute and simple, i love it!
simply thing are more efective, great work.
Please share the work flow via tutorial.
Having the rigs for checking, experimenting with would be nice.
Thank you for these kind comments!
The rigs can be downloaded here:
I was thinking that maybe a tutorial about building up keyframes to make pleasing movement would be helpful, or maybe a tutorial about deciding where to put the energy into your scenes in order to get them done by deadline. Do either of these topics sounds interesting?
Please do them both Daniel. I liked the animation and the two topics are both very connected in a project like this. I have a had a hard time knowing where to put the most effort, but if you have a good animation structure things goes alot faster.
Very well done. Perfect style and animation! I really like it, especially the rythm of text and animation and the end.
very nice work, very simple, very beatiful.
wow, nice animation!
A+ by me! Excellently done. Would love to see some tutorials.
Excellent, Daniel!! The animation was great, the little bee had tons of "expression". LUVED the head-first dive into the flower and when s/he flew thru the dandelion!! Wonderful flourishes.
Looking forward to the tutes.
I love it,clean, simple. I like word too.
Mention the climate change rubbish and you can get grants for anything. Make it cute and you can get even more.
Was this done entirely in Blender!?...
it's really amazing... I love how you animated the seed that becomes the organization's logo... it looks like a flash animation... (that's why i asked if it was entirely made in Blender)
This is the kind of style that i like the most, simple and clean, you make me want to learn how to Blend (propperly, lol).
Keep it up!
WOW... one of the only animations done in Blender that I can actually say "that was really good and well animated." You are an animator, sir. Congratulations.
Very nice animation. Simple and efficient. Well done!
Very nice video! Its nice to see such professional work made with blender!
it's a pretty damn good animation ;) i love it
Thank you all again for these encouraging comments. I'll sit down tomorrow to write down a tutorial and should have something together by the end of the day or the following day. I'll post a link here.
all the things are right that are hard to pin down. pacing, style consistency, colors, length.
very very very professional...smooth animation and great soundtrack...
Amazingly simple, beautiful and brilliant!
I love it, its a very fuid and clean animation, the contrast is very nice and the idea is cool.
Good job, better than a lot of other blender animations that I saw lately
Okay, I've got a write-up on planning and keyframing at
Congrats! Is a very good material. Keep it doing good. Bravo!
Wow! Beautiful! Very charming. The animation is very great too. Thanks for sharing.
yeah nice, but words or sentences disappear to quikly, not enough time to read.
