Run and jump WIP 2
More work on the animation I uploaded yesterday. I've finished off the action, added detail to the feet, body rotation, arcs and so on. Altered timing and spacing issues and gave it more of an anticipation before the jump. I think it's looking better anyway.
I learnt to use my Wacom tablet with Maya with this animation. I'd never tried it before so I thought it was about time. It's surprisingly easy to get used to and quite fast to work with. The only thing that bothers me is that when you hold the pen down it acts as a right click so sometimes when you want to move an object you'll end up showing it's vertices and silly things like that. But those small problems aside I'd highly recommend it!
Comments and crits are moooooooooore than welcome and I'd love to hear what you think.
Here's how the animation currently looks following some fixes (thanks to some crits from folk on the 11SC forum):
