As we are sucessfully modeling a 3d character in Maya I thought I would inspire us and show what we are capable of! We see many 3d animated characters in videos but here are some examples. They are 30 second videos showcasing the model.
Next I just wanted to show you this video of a modeled bird as it is used in another environment, which shows us a possibility for a final outcome of characters that are modeled in 3d programs. I really wonder how many movies I saw with animals in it that I thought were real and probably were animated. I thought to myself, "How did they stay still that long or take direction? How did they find animals to do this?" Now the answer is, "Animation."
