Animated head loop

While experimenting with the Animation Nodes addon for Blender (and trying to understand how it works), I came up with this simple loop, and decided to make a gif out of it. Crappy quality and lots of noise because I didn’t wanted to spend a whole day rendering this…

For anyone wanting to create procedural animation and/or motion graphics in Blender, I heavily recommend this addon, doing animation with nodes is really cool 🙂

New progress in the facial rig

3d, Animation, Blender, Character Design

I managed to finish the face rig and it looks pretty cool, but now that I fully understand the process I’ll go back to polish the model and add a few things to it. I’ll turn him into a mexican Luchador, so there’s still many things to do. Once he’s finished and fully textured, I’ll create the rig again from scratch, to study it more and hopefully make it better. Finally, once all that is done I’ll make a little animation to test it.

Here’s the ref sheet for the mask and the overall look of the character, and a few more render tests:

Masonry, Blender add-on

3d, Blender

I´ve just watched a new tutorial in Blendercookie.com about this cool new add-on called Masonry, which basically let’s you create procedural medieval like walls. And it seemed pretty awesome!!!

So obviously i had to give it a try and this is what came out with a little help of the compositor 😀 Right now i’m rendering a little animation, and it’ll be uploaded tomorrow.
