Optimus Transform animation!

This one took me more or less 2 days and was great fun to do! It's one of those "impulse" animations where I just go with the flow and animate straight ahead. Part of the reason would be because I don't even know how to set a KEY-ALL button on the character set in Maya to even attempt the pose-to-pose method.

Optimus walk cycle!

I realise I havn't been updating for a long time. So here's a little animation. Just installed Maya a few hours ago, and found this really awesome Optimus mini rig and could not resist just animating it asap. I've never even used Maya before so it took a bit of trial and error to learn how to keyframe, but here's a little walkcycle for an hour and a halfs work.

There are a ton of other polishes I could do, like fingers, more subtle rotations in body parts, etc and not to mention this is only just a vanilla walk and none that really shows character. But heck, it was fun, and was a great exercise to get me into Maya!
