King of the Dirt

This is my final project for my 3D animation program at Dev Studios/PixelBlueFX in Edmonton. It involves bikes and dirt jumping, so I thought it would be appropriate for pinkbike. This project took me over a month with many 18-hour days of work. Enjoy, and please let me know what you think (keep it constructive, and remember i'm just starting out). Music by Micheal Andrews.

 nice animation and models,rig,etc.. keep doing good jobs like that! (same comment at the same video you upload again, why you do that?)
  • + 0
 This is great, you may have a future in animation that is if youre not in the field at the moment. The models were great looking, but the prairie dogs movement looked a little awkward. Except for that it was perfect, I enjoyed it alot!!!

 Mega props on this!
Very well done!
I will remember to look out for the crowbar weilding gophers next time I'm down my local jumpsWink
  • + 2
 Sweet animation for someone whos starting out. Would be even more awesome if you could smoothen out the movements of the bike mid-air abit but i dunno how hard that is, ive never animated anything haha. Keep at it dude!
  • + 1
 some very nice angles you've used and some very very nice modeling also im loving the back drop. some things i have to say tho is that the textures/materials are a bit repetitive or in some cases streached eg. the jumps. one more thing the air the character gets from the jump is a little bit jumpy but besides that is was a very very very good animation. im currently character modeling using blender and zbrush but im jsut doing stills with high detail.
agian congrats it was very good
it deserverd VOD
  • + 5
 music=shit
  • + 2
 that kid isnt bad.... and the biker is awsome Razz reeally good. i hate it wen ur doing doubles nd animalls come nd try to kill u allways annoying
  • + 0
 For animation thats sick, But no offence man i just dont think that deservers vod maybe if a little longer, and im not a bmx fan,but thats just me. Good luck on your next video.
  • + 2
 Great computer work!!! Lol when i first watched it i saw that random shot of that gopher and i was like WTF?!
  • + 0
 wow it's awsome i can see it in the beginning of of a biking vid, kinda like pixar has those small videos in begining Razz

it cant be VOD, hes not wearing a helmet! joking of course...
  • + 1
 you should try to get a job at pixar studios. they are always looking for good animators like you and its one of the top places in the world to work. VOD
  • + 3
 that was legit.
Could make for a unique vod??
  • + 1
 nice work! cool VOD. should make a longer one. o and put a bucket on the guy! lol
  • + 0
 Did you motion capture the rider or just animate from scratch? really liked it whatever, plot is a little thin, but technically it's very polished.
  • + 1
 he should have done the peter griffon scene on the ground after the little sh*t made him fall lol
  • + 2
 the gopher is a fuckin wanker
