Rigs, sketches and frustration.

Hello everybody!

This week has been quite strange. I had to do 40 seconds of animation in 5 days. To me thats a lot. I was working for the whole night yesterday, didnt sleep and went to work. The thing is, the rig was doing strange things, I didnt really know at the time it started to happen, but it seems it goes a bit crazy if you switch from FK to IK and viceversa. So after keying all my keyposes, Maya would go completely crazy and my poses looked liked shit.

After too many hours without sleeping, I had nothing. But I have a super cool boss, he fixed the problem and gave me some more time.
While I was waiting for the program to render or when I got completely frustrated, I tryed to relaxe, looked at some pics/drawings/paintings from the artists that I like and sketched. This are the ones that I like most. As u can see, I really need to start drawing poses, not only heads. And yeah, I tend to draw them always the same. Have to keep on practicing!
It also looks like Ill be giving an After Effects workshop in the animation studio. Im really looking forward to it, and its also pushing me to do some little animations. Hope I can show something soon.
And I still cant believe Im feeling so bad, Its hardly been 30 hours with no sleep. The days where I could spend days without sleeping are gone...Am I getting old?...

Ánimo hombre, qué son 30 horas sin dormir? Seguro que con tu historial de toda esa frustración van a salir unas animaciones estupendas (por cierto me gustó mucho la del soldado). Estoy deseando verlas. Un saludote.

The guy next to the bush is excellent!

Maya does indeed throw some weird shit at you if you are not too familiar with the app. I just ordered 2 advanced rigging & technical design books for maya unlimited. Should get me going.

I'll post a project diary on my website once I get the rigging study going.
