Mechawhales Animation I

Postby hauke » Thu Mar 22, 2012 12:11 pm

Hello everyone!

My name is Hauke and I just joined this forum. I would like to show you an animation with a character I created last year. It is basically about whales in giant mecha suits defending humans against evil aliens. There is quite a bit of text to read in the beginning but it gets quite action heavy in the end. Or at least as action heavy as my humble animation skills allow me to do. :-) This is also the first time I tried toonshading my characters. So I hope you will enjoy it.

Here are some screenshots from the animation:

Thanks for checking this out, Hauke
