Default cowboy character

Hello there,

as I said in my speeder bike thread I'm finally going to give character animation a shot. Here's what I'm going to be practising on. It's a paper model that came with my mobile phone bill, I scanned the pieces and texture mapped them to a simple poly model.
I'm not sure what direction to take and I'm sure I'll make alot of mistakes on the way so any feedback or help along the way would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Mat.

Cheers Matt,

I have managed to get BOXBOY moving now, it's only a simple jump but it is my first animation so I am pretty proud of it! I had such a hassle posting this file and ended up having to build a website to host it (go figure!). So hopefully you will now be able to see it, enjoy.

have a good'un,

Mat.

clicky to see

Hello again,

I've been messing round with animation again and have made these 2 short clips. Once again they are not much but they are all progress. Hope you enjoy, take it easy,

Mat.
