Plod is back and then gone again in his second movie!
About this creation
Second animation, once again featuring Plod.
2 aims: to study the walking motion to see if it was okay, and to attempt a fluid motion with a static build.
I've also used a "rig" for the first time! You can see the rig in the main pic which is removed in the final movie.
It's almost there but maybe not quite. You can judge for yourselves on the degree of success. I have an increased respect for the professional animators. This was another Saturday to film following an elapsed month or so of prep, and I think it probably needed more.
Made with Stop Motion Pro and finished of with Movie Maker.
This is an excellent animation! The character design is unique and engaging, and the walk animation and subtle facial details are really nice. The secondary action on the tie and the timing of the splash could use some work, but overall this is a really great piece.
