Default Stick Man Animation

Well I have decided to drop my mexican projecct for now because Dragonhawk wanted to do a combined project with me
This project is going to be a cell shaded, samurai stickman animation. We still dont have much of a plot but were working on it. Sadly Dragonhawk has went on holiday and will be away for the next 10 days or so and left me in charge of the project, he asked me to model characters, weapons clothes etc... so here is my progress so far:
a dagger type thing


a samurai sword


Comments welcome as always

Cant take much credit for the cel shading as its just a standard toon shader that I have optimized slightly... but thanks

Looks cool so far mate! But what where the stickmen made out of? or did you just lower the diffuse?

FrenZy: thanks

twisteddragon33: This is actually a very popular shape for a knife... I seen it in countless films, cartoons and even shop windows but why you have this type of knife I do not know
*scary*

Anyway I was hoping to update this thread today but I just couldnt find the time to do any work on this project

Zyk0tiK: Yeh that futurama shader is quite amazing, shame they cancelled the series...


Dragonhawk: Im glad you like it and dont worry there is still pleanty to do on this project so I will need you when you come back. BTW I hope your having fun in Bavaria

Back to the project now. I have made a few new stick men characters but there isnt really much point posting any pics as all these stickmen are just very similar to each other. Need a brake from maya, but tomorrow I will hopefully get some envoiroments done
