Here a little body mechanic exercise ��♂️�️
Despite it is only a jump shot working with all the rotation properly was still a challenge.
(We’ll never be free from gimbal lock �) The ideas to make intresting a jump shot were countless, this choice i ended up with is a mix of my personal taste and a manageble complexity level for a solid introduction to animation.
Let me know what would you like to see this character do, i’ll do my best! ��� I also added some breakdown phases:
1) a layered hip pass, to guide me trough the workflow and focus on weight
2) the finished blocking playblast, ready to spline
The rig i used is Stewart from @animationmentor, the best!
