Baby, Let's Take Over the Earth

Here's my current progress on my piece! I was hoping to have 1st pass spline done this weekend but couldn't do anything due to food poisoning XD. Still, fairly happy with it for a first pass (apart from the obvious blocking bits at the end). If you notice anything or want to provide any feedback at all i'd be very grateful. Thanks!

Re: Baby, Let's Take Over the Earth

Hey! Nice first pass the idea plays out smoothly, I only have a couple of suggestions that maybe will help you out smile

- The kid's facial expressions are to mirrored, you could benefit from having more asymmetric eyebrows and eyes.
- You gave him a playful attitude which matches perfectly with the audio, maybe you could make the kid poke "earth" after saying "I'm going to ruuule..." that way he can interact with his context a bit more.
- After the "journalist" says his line it would be a great idea to have the kid trying to eat earth (like kids do when their teeth are growing and their gums are itching) instead of levitating or doing something supernatural.
- I think the journalist should't loose his mic when he's surprised.
- Lastly but not least when the journalist says "go about" the arm pose does not draw well maybe you can have it on the other side so it looks cleaner.

Those where my 2 cents on the subject hope you can finish on time and that you're feeling better!


Happy Animating!

Re: Baby, Let's Take Over the Earth

Cheers that's really helpful Matias, I think breaking up the expressions has really helped. i've avoided doing the "poke the earth" thing, because I think it might be a little too on the nose, and I think most other people will be doing something similar, so hopefully I can get it to work without! Also not sure about getting the "eating the earth" bit to work, I think I'm going to avoid making this big of a change so late in the game, but definitely a fun idea! big_smile. I haven't edited the journalist but will be doing this tomorrow!

Mostly focus on the first half of the baby today and then gets a bit carp when the camera pans. Let me know what you think cheers!

Re: Baby, Let's Take Over the Earth

Looking good! smile as a very general comment you could try to keep the eyes of the baby more fixed, they seem to be hitting a lot of places in very few frames, hope you can make it on time, best of luck!!!

Good, maybe put some bump mapping on the item in front of the baby. TEXTURE before a huge scene.

Re: Baby, Let's Take Over the Earth

Thanks for the tips! I barely got around to fixing any of them as I haven't had much time, so tried to avoid anything too "big". Also I consulted some other people about changing how much the babies eyes move but they said it fits the energy, so i decided to leave it smile.
