Default Lifting Animation (WIP)

Hey guys, after being accepted to start an Animation Mentor class this summer I decided to brush up my animation skills some.
Here is a block in I have done for a lifting animation I would like to hear what you think.

Thanks

Looks good, only thing I wonder is, would he keep his feet planted during the lift, or would he step back with one prior ro the lift?

yeah I was thinking of adding a sort of stumble back when he takes the weight of it but didn't get round to adding it in yet,

thanks for the input

alos once it is in his arms there looks to be no strain to keep what looked to be such a heavy weight at the beginning up.

Overall it is a good base, keep posting as you work it up.

Hey sspikedudley.

You may be my class mate! I start AM this summer too. hehe.

Anyway, your animation is looking good. Nice simple poses. I like the walk at the end.

As he goes to pick up the box I think his right foot should come forward.

Apart from that. Its looking good man.


keep posting dude
