The simplest way to animate a robot in Maya is to use keyframes. A keyframe records the value of an attribute at a point in time on the timeline. When two keyframes are set for an attribute at different points in time, Maya interpolates the value between the two keyframes on the timeline, and the result is an animated robot. Keyframes can be set on almost any attribute in Maya

Innovative and adventuresome, Matthias van Arkel is the only artist who 'paints' in rubber.
Hovering halfway between painting and sculpture, Matthias’ art is a dynamic convergence of color and texture. Though he uses an industrial material to express his vision, the artworks are handmade and highly original. In limited edition prints, Matthias has translated his working process into two dimensions.
