test1 audio lip sync

the audio is a little off the 2nd half of this animation, it might be that i put in the wrong audio. it's right in maya.

this is the background i plan on using and the crown is finished. this week i'm focusing on finishing animation, and getting her skin and hair finished.

lip sync 1

i realize the video has no audio. in maya, the audio track suddenly decided to disappear, and i was unable to figure out the problem. basically i modeled the last few words with no reference audio. as of right now, i only have her lips moving, nothing else. i have her face posed into an angry stare.

what she's supposed to be saying is:

i said 'off with THEIR heads!'

i will probably be adding 'not off with MY head!' later. i plan on re-recording ann's voice to be a little bit more faster and angrier.

queen with some very bad makeup

i'm still messing around with her neck/chin/cheeks. also, when i added some "makeup", i noticed just how bad her eyebrows looked. the hair and crown i threw on really quickly and needs some work.

assignment 2

elmer fudd

elmer turned out to be more difficult than i imagined. although he's very spherical, trying to figure out how those intersect by looking at very simple line drawings wasn't easy. i started with a cube, but inserted spheres so i could model around those to get the curves. his mouth was the hardest to figure out.
