GumballSince September I'm working on the 3rd season of "The Amazing World of Gumball" as the 3D (Animation) Supervisor. It has been a great experience so far. Check out the first and second season, can't recommend them enough.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

Trailer of the Project I currently working on. So far it's a great learning experience. Working with so many talented people is intimidating and inspiring at the same time.

Descendants PlayOfficial WebsiteCG Society Thread
芒鈧綝escendants芒鈧 is a short done by some friends of mine. I just helped them by animating some of the 'deer like animal' scenes. A few days ago it has been released on CG Society. - Synopsis: The two main characters are flowers (voiced by Whoopi Goldberg and Christy Scott Cashman) who grow on the edge of a clearing next to one another. One is old and jaded by a mysterious history - the other one still young, vivid and curious. Destiny has brought these two together and it seems as if they would exist without possibility for change, until one day a visitor to the clearing brings something unexpected to their lives.

Animation Test 001 Jump

001 Jump Play (QT Sorenson3 0.92mb)

After animating effects for almost 12 hours a strange inner feeling to do another short animation test came over me on my way back home ... why... I have no idea 馃檪 ... It's nothing fancy, I only spend 45 min so don't expect to much ... In the end I played around with Maya's Hardware Render Buffer and I was surprised how well it works. It's almost as fast as playblasting but looks way much better because of antialiasing plus you can have motion blur... For anyone who is interested ... Maya >> Window >> Rendering Editors >> Hardware Render Buffer. Under the Render tap you'll find Attributes, just play with them until you like the result.

Almost done :), I still need to work a bit on the lip sync especially on Shot 3 and doing some more polishing but I can see a light at the end of the tunnel (German phrase, not sure if it makes sense in English 馃槈 )

This week I polished a lot, body mechanic wise it's pretty final maybe some last little tweaks. Only the lip sync wasn't touched :).
