Narrative - The Rest of the Character Pose Sneak Previews

Here are the rest of our characters in a test pose. Doing a test pose like this has proved useful as I've found some of the less noticeable glitches in the rig, that couldn't necessarily be found from only testing it's basic functions with only the skeleton to look at. In some cases I have also noticed a few more little problems with the skinning, but I think they will have to remain there as time is running out.

The Scientist - looking very creepy!

The Generic Female - screaming as per usual

The Soldier - he almost looks ready for battle, except he has no weapons.

The assistant - So shocked at the sight of nothing (in the space suit)

The general - fallen asleep on set

Anyway, these are our team of actors who are going to make 'The Day of the Invisible Cannibals from Beyond the Stars' a masterpiece... or a B movie disaster.


  1. Hey Ethan - you're clearly working very hard - and these posed characters are making me smile - I especially like Mrs 'Running & Screaming' :D

  2. The whole team is working very hard. I'm now in a position to start animating stuff... (finally)

    While Ruben is modelling all the environments and Shahbir does the facial rigging, ready for lip syncing.

    The race is on to finish the project... and maya tasks in which I am way behind in...

  3. Of course, animation is something I don't want to rush though

  4. I know you're very preoccupied with Retrofest stuff, but I saw this guy's drawings and thought again of your transcription project; there's just something very satisfying about the minimalism and quality of line that reminded me of you...
