A Chessy Love Story

Postby Yorb_Boss » Thu Feb 28, 2013 2:50 am

Another university animation, this time we had to make an inanimate object go through around 20-30 seconds of animation. I chose a pawn piece for my animation and we had about 3 weeks to do this start to finish. I'm hoping for some useful critique as we will be doing another similar animation assessment in a few weeks. Thanks in advance.

Nice job! Here's your embedded video. The thing that came to mind for me is that I don't get the impression the pawn is fully making contact with the surface. There's a reflection of the object on the chess board but there's no contact shadow. It feels like it's floating. Otherwise there's many positives about this video. Thanks for posting. Look forward to more of your work!
