    Remake of Pixar's Luxo Jr.

    Hello BlenderArtists,


    It's been a while since I registered here, however this is the first time I post. A quick presentation is therefore necessary. I am a non-professional graphist passionate about the production of animated movies. I have been using Blender for 10 years and I am really impressed by the evolution of this software. I hope someday to be able to work in the animation movie industry and, why not, with Blender.

    So now, as mentioned in the title, I would like to show you my remake of Pixar's Luxo Jr. I hope you'll enjoy it !

    Wow! I have no criticism, this is incredible. I had to reference the original short just to make sure they were different. Spot on! I would have loved to see some sort of a twist at the end though Maybe a follow up? Did you use cycles for this or some other render? Would love to see a behind the scenes.
    Thanks!

    Luxo Jr. (Remake) - Breakdown

    Hello,


    Thanks for your replies.

    No, no suite planned. Maybe another time. Yes, it's rendered with Cycles.

    I tried to make a breakdown. It's the first time, so I hope you'll enjoy it.

    What an excellent idea for an animation exercise. It's kind of like the old masters being copied by students.

    @rontarrant: Yes, that's exactly it! There is some interesting challenges for the beginners in animating Luxo Jr., especially the cord. I learned a lot in remake this short movie.

    @Asmund: Thank you !

    What's next? Tin Toy? Knick Knack? Red's Dream?

    I've been trying to talk myself into learning animation 'the Blender way' and your approach has inspired me.

    What's next ? I'm working on a new short film. This is not a remake. It is an "original" content based on a known universe.
    Otherwise, to stay in the universe of Pixar, I sometimes work on a technical demo of Wall-E. I started it a few months ago. I'll open a topic if it's worth it.

    Thank you, boruland. Yes, that was the idea. I wanted to keep that old feeling, but have a more modern look.

    Incredible work! I'm a HUGE Pixar fan so this was fun to watch.
    This inspires me to learn more about rigging.

    Thank you, Jared.Owen !
    Yes, you should. Rigging is a very powerful tool.

    Thank you, Aang !
