Subtle animation test

Last month I found I had a little spare time so I started an 11 second club. There was only a few days left till the end of the month so I knew it wasn't going to be something I finished in time but i've been plodding along with it and its slowly coming together.

The clip is from 'Iron Man 2' and is the exact kind of clip I have wanted to animate for a while. I've wanted to animate a man as I think most of my work comes out quite child-like or female. I also wanted to do something subtle. Subtle animation is my favourite kind so I challenged myself to do something new.

It still has a way to go and i'm not a renderer so I have to experiment.

Here are the first few stages:

The block was much too rough and ready but I was struggling with not blocking enough or too much for a subtle animation.
I still need to figure out the edit and I think sections need a little more varietion and definition but its getting there.

Walt Disney

I have been looking forward to this film for so long.
I remember reading about it about 5 years ago before they cast Tom Hanks. I had him at the top of my Walt Disney wish list so i'm extremley happy they have choosen him.
