here we are then, the latest installment of my film. only 3 1/4 finished and missing some sound effects but its coming together ok. the animation is never going to be right as each time i watch it i find another problem i could try to refine or polish. and im learning about character acting more by the day. but ive got a few shots i can use on my show reel, so its all good. the unrendered animation in the last section has been refined a little and rendered, but i havnt finished those backgrounds yet so i havnt included them in this animatic. the music has been re-timed to. also premier keeps ofsetting the sound. i'll get it timed out for next version.

my latest animatic, a few slight alterations with the animation and that should be finished. then i have to finish the backgrounds. i will be rendering the final shots with the correct lighting as i finish them. also the music and sound fx need tweeking to fit the new timeings.

in other news, i talked with a few tutors about bringing back his eyebrows. so i attempted to reattach them, but after skinning them and testing there manoverability, they turned out to be extremely clumbsy and they floated around his fourhead irritatingly. so there still out. i then had a go with some smaller ones and attaching them with a skin wrap modiffier so they moved with the morph targets, and it worked for a while, but then it went wrong, so rather than waste more time faffing, i will be leaving the brows out for good.

after some splendid crits, it was drawn to my attention that the dog seemed to be a bit dissjointed. so i had a look and realised that this was quite true. the body was ok but the head and neck had lots of issues. the neck was almost swan like and the nose was too large. so i had a fiddle and got the proportions better. i also mad a few refinments on the body. im much happier with this updated version.

the dog is pretty much finished, heres a turnaround. ive decided he should be a little stockier as he's been living on a mountain for most of his life, but ive also tried to to maintian some cuteness for appeal, with big eyes and a larger nose and feet. ive also gone for cutesy rounded cheeks for extra cuteness. did i say cuteness?
now i just need to work out how to rig the little bleeder!
