      Back in July ¡MAYDAY! released a new album called Believers. After having worked with Wrek on Tom Hanks several months prior, he and ¡MAYDAY!'s manager Andrea gave me the chance to work on some animation for the track On That Jack. The track is an anthem singing the praises of Jack Daniels. Once I'd finished the bulk of the animation, Wrek and Bernz, shot footage both in Miami, and while on the Something Else Tour. They laid the two elements together in an amazingly cohesive fashion, and the video was released on the 7th.
      Watch it on youtube
      As of writing this post, the video has had 97K views! It has also been linked on 2dopeboyz.com, crazyhood.com, thatsenuff.com, and given an entry on imvdb.com. It also received a feature write up on djbooth.net!
      I blown away by the positive reception, and I cannot have been luckier (No.7) to have had this chance.

      There's a tile on the floor of my bathroom that looks like this.

      After seeing it every time I walk into the bathroom I decided to draw it, and attempt to add a bit more of a story to it.

      I've been working off and on, on a rig for a face model from TurboSquid (Thanks to the folks at Bitmapworld for making such a nice model!) After unwrapping it and finally finishing the rigging I got to start animating it. The whole goal was to create a subtle and "realistic" animation. I'm pretty happy with it, and I plan on continuing the quest for subtlety.
      Here is the "Final" product.

    • "Realistic" Face Rig #3

      Here is a breakdown of the lighting passes for the final animation.
      9095342.jpeg?473
      Initial Key light, with the stripes on it to make the window-ey blinds effect. (The only light casting shadows)
      9008170.jpeg?452
      A Fill light so that you can still see somewhat in the dark stripes.
      4185777.jpeg?446
      A Fill light to the side, to keep him from looking like he's coming out of the darkness.
      2524225.jpeg?459
      A Back Fill light to create a partial Rim Light and to fake bounce that might come from his surroundings.
      3633804.jpg?464
      Cooled off the left side of his face in After Effects.
      7960082.jpg?442
      Added another Rim light in After Effects.
      Breakdown Video
      All the lights broken down in a video.
      As I said before this was a lot of fun to do, I learned a tremendous amount about rigging and subtle animation and I'm looking forward to applying those newfound learnings into my next projects.

    • "Realistic" Face Rig #2

      6 years ago

      Here is the animation progress from start to "Finish" on the face animation (In YouTube Videos.)
      Blocking
      Initially I blocked the the main keyframes, then tackled the breakdowns of the "Miracle", "Sham", "Switch", and "Fool" lines separately breaking down each one in succession. Then after getting some critique, I made some tweaks and broke down the holds and added the major jaw movements.
      Splining
      Next I splined it, cleaned up the graph editor for the neck and head joints. Then after getting some critique, I toned down the accents on "Miracle", "Sham", and "Switch". Finally I added the sync for the lips.
      Polish
      Lastly I did some more polish, toning down the accents even more, and cleaning up the eyebrow motions a bit.
      That's it, for this one, the final part will breakdown the lighting and show the final animation. I've had fun with this one, learned a lot about rigging and a TON about the way I perceive motion, I'm comfortable steering away from "Realism" a bit, but I do want to keep working on subtlety, it's been a pain, but I need to keep improving on it.

    • "Realistic" Face Rig #1

      I don't like admitting it, but my reel is sorely missing some "Realism" (I use quotes, cause it's still gonna be somewhat stylized, despite what it's called.) Since I also need some new dialog, I decided to do a "realistic" face. I found a great model on TurboSquid and I set out to learn more about rigging in the process. What started as a simple idea got bigger and bigger. Eventually I got to the point of unwrapping & texturing the head while learning about SSS sharers. Finally I think I'm ready to start animating, but here are some screen caps of the work I've done on it.
      7207821.jpg?551
      My original bone structure for the head (I started with the misguided notion I would be able to drive the entire mouth with a spline.)
      9461386.jpg?549
      I also decided to try using more "Intuitive" controllers by putting them on the face, instead of using sliders.
      9682864.jpg?551
      After discovering the wire deformer wasn't going to cut it and I needed to use bones, I wrote out all the weights I wanted for each vertex.
      1517414.jpg?541
      Nearing completion of the base head joint weights he begins to look like a Juggalo (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
      943470.jpg?539
      "Completed" face rig, although as I write this I realize I forgot to add a controller for his Adam's apple and his three tongue controllers.
      4876682.png?543
      First pass at the texture, went way overboard on the scattering.
      6019094.png?536
      After getting advice from friends I toned back the scattering (Ended up painting maps for each level) and cooled down his face a bit.
      So, that's where I'm at, I throw those last controllers on there and then start animating this weekend, if all goes well I'll have some blocking to post next week.

      Here is a link to a 2D animation I did a few weeks ago. I toyed with the idea of cleaning it up and giving the characters a more rendered look, but somehow I think the rough animatic style drawings work for it. I took some major story cop outs, but it was still fun to do.
