Marcel Gotlib hommage.

Here is where I am today….. still a looonnng wayyyyy from finish but I have integrated a lot of comments from my buddies and especially the ones with no CG character animation knowledge. Those are the ones who usually come up with the most challenging feedback but that’s always for the better.

I rotated the camera around so we see his face better and hide the women’s reaction. I don’t have time to design, customize and animate them so a silhouette will work nicely ;-) The character walks left to right which is not very cinematographic but I could always mirror the video with the risk of having him looking left handed.

I still have to work on the knee pops, posing of the left hand at the beginning, change the design of the cane for something more Victorian stylish, tweak the grab of the hat, and the speed of the steps at the end of the fall, work on the unfolding of the spine and add few more steps at the end, fix the gimbal locks and constraints pops…..

The guy is supposed to wear a knee long coat but I am not too keen on covering his legs and spine with crappy cloth simulation. I don’t even know how to do it. The ground should ultimately be a cobbled street. I will had a small hat for the women so they don’t hide him too much…..
