Anatomy For Artists by Scott Eaton

I’ve been taking this course for the last month or so and only want to say that is totally recommended. Even if you (think) you know about anatomy you’ll learn lots about muscle function, position and behavior. Essential for artists and riggers.

Check it out yourself. Anatomy for Artists – Online Course

And here are two early examples of me practicing ‘discovering’ the torso muscles from photographs…
They are a bit messy but I’m still practising… ūüėČ

I’ll upload more stuff every now and then…

A very early Test Screening review of Alfonso Cuaron’s GRAVITY! Surprise, it is described as ‘next level’!!!

This is what aintitcool.com has to say about the early screening of Gravity! So proud of this team amazing work!

Some quotes:
“Gravity is a fucking¬†masterpiece.”

“This is not just next level shit, this is several levels ahead of next¬†level shit, & quite possibly the highest level shit you could possibly¬†make.”

“It‚Äôs beautiful, and¬†awe-inspiring, and profound (and a little scary too), everything you¬†thought it would be since you first thought about going to space when¬†you were a kid.”

“It has some of the¬†best uses of first person POV shots I‚Äôve ever seen, making you feel¬†like you too are hovering right over the Earth, so close yet so far¬†away.”

“Sandra Bullock‚Äôs character has no¬†family down on Earth. No friends. Her job is up in space. She‚Äôs¬†struggling to get back to survive, but in truth, she doesn‚Äôt have much¬†to live for down on that planet, so why even go through the effort? To¬†me the film is about apathy and isolation. It‚Äôs about people today not¬†knowing why they should be excited about living but only knowing they¬†don‚Äôt want to die.”

“This cut still gets my¬†ultra-rare 11 out of 10 rating though, & it can only go up after I see¬†the 100% completed version. ¬†Congratulations Mr.Cuaron, you sir have¬†changed the game.”

I joined Framestore!

Almost 3 months late but here it goes!

Since late February I’m a Rigger at Framestore-CFC. I’ve been really busy between the new job and London so I haven’t been able to write a decent entry on the blog until now.

It’s been 3 months now and I feel like I can fairly say that so far it’s even better than I expected. I’m working in some really cool projects, that I’m not sure if I can’t talk about them or not, so I won’t do it… for now… ūüėČ ¬†and surrounded by this amazing and at the same time frightening REALLY talented people.

I just hope to take the best I can from this new exciting experience and do my best!

That’s all for now… Jose out…

Dummy Rig – Video Demo Reel

Long time no see!

 

It’s been a long time since my last post but I’m been really busy working on some cool stuff. So, with luck, I’ll been updating more constantly the following weeks to show them to you.

 

The first one, a video to show a rig I’ve been working on bit by bit the last couple of months.

 

Here’s a list of the features:

– IK/FK Limbs with Stretchy, Volumetric Stretch, Follow, Global Space, reverse foot attributes, etc…

– LOD. Proxy and Skinned with Low, Medium and High smooth levels.

– Completely scalable.

– Seamless IK/FK Switching.

– Mirror and Flip controls. World Space and Root Relative Space.

– Pin controls one to another. Also to extra pin controls that can be created dynamically.

– Bake the animation and delete the pin from pinned controls.

– Seamless Global/Follow Switching.

– Dynamic Main Pivot.

 

Also, this rig and it’s video are both part of the demo reel I’m working on (coming soon).

 

And last but not least, within a few days I’ll publish this rig with all this features in http://www.CreativeCrash.com.

 

And now, the video. Hope you like it.

 

 

Cheers.
