An animation tutorial would be greatly appreciated! I’m learning animation as we speak, by websites, books, interviews with pros and some 2D animation, but I want to do 3D too. I’m definetly going for it, but a tut with tips for animation in Blender (I can’t afford Maya, and PLE watermark bugs me a lot) would really be useful!
please please, pretty please make one
Now, about the animation: Very nice camerawork and great animation. Not “the best I’ve ever seen in any program”, but it doesn’t have to be at all. Being one of the best I’ve seen with Blender is more then enough. Only animations that could top it for me were in the Siggraph demo reel. You’ve really succeeded in giving a mechanical chair character. Robosounds contribute a lot to the character too, which is great. Lovely texturing too, although I feel the red is a wee bit out of place. Don’t know whether it’d need to be a lighter or darker tone, or a completely different colour, but it seems a bit strange. At least in some shots, in other it looks just fine. I also like the camera effect a lot. A last crit would be the lightning of the electricity. It’s hard to get that right, and although you’re coming close to it, it’s not “all that”.
