here is a little test animation I put together in Maya.
I drew an arcade shoot-em-up space ship, and decided I would have a go at modelling it in 3D, I am an animator by trade so modelling is still something I have to get used to. I was most happy with the results. So much so I animated a short flying sequence in the vein of Transformers prime's animation style, with jets whizzing past, that kind of thing.
Also, the ship was originally meant to be a transforming ship, but since I need to remind myself of the basics of Rigging, it is a basic spaceship right now, but maybe at a future date he could transform as part of a sequence, you can check it out right here:
Enjoy, look out for more 3D animations :D
