Character studies, a 3D course work (2002)

Theme and Objectives

“Pushkin and Petronella” aka “my first 3D”. Animation plot in a nutshell: Puschkin is a horse-headed man and Petronella a female centaur, who chases Puschkin ­– armed with a kyudo bow.

I started my 3D-career boldly, making toroughly detailed, complicated models. Lesson learned: after some“funny” errors with the skeleton and the model hierarchy I noticed that technical complexity may cause problems for novices. “KISS” would have been a good rule of thumb here too.
