I don't know why I did that :P Yes, animation takes a lot of time, but, if spent well, it's totally worth it! Here's the second animation assignment of second year (second second second)! The weight lift and toss took a lot of planning and thinking in order for the object to appear heavy, but I loved animating the character! It's like your own character starting to move and act. It's still pretty rough, and I didn't even have time to do the extra animation bit at the beginning, so I just kept in the key frames for that part. Hope you like it!
I was going to upload my 3D Maya walk cycle as well, but YouTube made the video all funny looking :| Hopefully I'll have it up shortly, along with some other, highly necessary updates!
