Hello everyone.

If You guys have suggestions for tutorials, written or video, please let me know, as I am slowly returning to animation full time.

  1. I don't know if you've got my mail? Anyway, this is what I said:
    * I’m curious how you would handle head and body turns with smart bones, front - 3/4 or even better front - back.

    * Different ways to handle animation with ”target bones”, like walk cycles, what is, in your opinion, the best way to make a walk cycle, pose to pose? Do you move the target bones first? etc…

    1. Hello Ulrik

      No I did not get your email.

      As far as head turn goes, I posted a test a while ago.

      I don't use smartbones for head and body turns really, they look too static for my taste, not dynamic enough, and the rigs are a pain in the butt to make.

      Here is one way of making a head turn without smartbones.

      Body turns can easily be made with a simple turn around, like the one I posted on YouTube a while back.

      And yes, I would animate target bones first, especially for the legs.

  3. What about, to use references and masking, for make shading and highlights?
    I guess there is a smart way to use references on original "vector" art for that purpose

    1. Hello Ulrik
      Normally I only use masking for these, but I suppose that reference layer could make the process more dynamic, I'll look into it.
      Thanks for the suggestion.
