Week 9 - 48 Percent (Re-Blocking)

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes!  That's right, even David Bowie would notice quite a difference between last week's assignment and the current rendition.  The main reason for this was Boola's critique, where he explained that while technically speaking the animation was sound, he felt I was losing too much of the performance from the original video reference.  Aside from feeling flattered that Boola felt so strongly about my acting abilities, I knew this was going to be a boatload of extra work, putting me under pressure to re-block the shot and also move it into spline (which the assignment called for).  None the less, here's the updated product, which is looking solid, if not spectacular.  With two weeks to go on this assignment (and only three weeks left in Class 4!) it's time to take my protein pills and put my helmet on.

He played it left hand:

Let's all take a deep breath.......and exhale.  Ahhhhhhh.  Now, don't you all feel relaxed, just like this hand?  Goooooooood.

Next week: Polishing, another hand pose, no more David Bowie references
