Biscuits, crumbs and cups of yum
Today Eva spent the day making lots of wonderful treats! which i proceeded to devour with much gusto!
Now I know how to rig and program up a puppet using an image combined of separate limbs and puppet pins plus Nulls (and secret sauce) so heres a frog.. Animating like this is very very similar to animating on Maya suprisingly

My Tomb. The word of today is ‘Paper-cut’ Interesting observation: Two most popular items people order are about...

Continuing my maya crash course learning, Am very impressed already with the speed and ability I have already progressed in a couple of days learning. Decided to create a battle walker from ‘Battlefield 2142’ Not only is it an awesome game! but the shapes are relativly simple for me to create. SO far I am using this picture below, at the moment I have just one leg: Learnt how...
Maya: Gotta start moving to get somewhere
