I'm almost there! The animation is almost ready to be rendered and forgotten about forever. I spent today animating the weight frame by frame...525 frames! I also built the set and textured everything! All I have left to do now is to animate the camera a little bit on impact of the character falling over.
Here's how everything is looking so far:
I worked out that the 21 seconds of animation should take just under 9 hours to render (with mental ray). So that's going to be left on tonight...hopefully I'll be able to sleep for 9 hours! :P
P.S. Here are the posters just for fun:
The last one is just a chart that I found on google images.
