Bobby the Bobcat Speaks!

This is a test animation with my anthro bobcat rig. It was lots of fun to make!

I modeled Bobby about two years ago, forgot about him, then took him out two weeks ago to rig over spring break. He’s about 90% done right now. I need to fix some weight painting, and I want to reduce the speculairity on his nose, teeth, and tounge. I’m going to make another test animation that uses his legs and torso more, so I can test those parts of the rig, too.

I chronicled the rigging process and listed a bunch of tutorials that helped me on my website/blog

The dialogue is something that Adam Levine said in the bloopers for the Voice. Everything was made in Blender, and rendered with Cycles at 100 passes.

Tell me what you guys think!
