HI everyone we are currently in the process of developing a 40sec animation here at our studio for a sanitary company. Needless to say i cant post up the storyboards but what i will post are wireframes of the the models and some of the playblast animations

ill start off by showing what i have been modelling. The character will have facial animations so let me know if you think the topology will have any problems

cheers

Topology looks ok to me, pretty clean from what I can see here. Look forward to seeing the finished animation.

Animation looks pretty good, maybe just linger on the last bit for longer.

It's always good to put away the toys from time to time and get back to basics.

Nice job so far.
