These are the final animations for our Wing Cycle project. Students spent time designing unique flying characters and created an animated loop showing the character in flight. The trick was to make the action of the wings and body feel realistic and animate the secondary motion of tails, feet, ears etc. so they appear to be a natural part of the movement of the character as a whole.
You can see the great mix of creativity and technical ability that had to be used by the students to succeed in this challenging assignment.
