Here's my groups first year final animation project, based upon the theme sausages from mars.
The task was to render a character in 3D, rig them, and animate them. I think we did pretty well, specially since most of us had never touched 3D software in our lives before October 2011.
We came up with the idea to feature our characters in a sort of "wacky races" style race where we had wildly mismatched competitors.
Our group worked beyond the criteria, spending time adding features such as blendshapes, as well as facial modeling and animation to our characters.
Anyway, hope you like our first 3D animation!
Animated in: Autodesk Maya
