This is my latest work on Jason. It was supposed to be a test but I couldn't help but love what I came up with. But time is tight especially with my new job so I'm still deciding whether or not I should go on with this animation. What do you think ?

Onimaru - Turntable Slap Animation

I applied the same animation from my first character to this one just to see how it comes together. I didn't bother with the facial animation on this one. However, I did upload a series of still images for the facial expressions below.

Enter Onimaru !

Finally some decent updates !! He was previously called The Ninja, then went on to Kagemaru but I decided to go ahead with Onimaru. Yes, I'm making things up as I go along.

Turntable Slap Animation

Jason Chow - Turntable Animation - Final Gathering on Vimeo.

Jason Chow - Turntable Slap Animation - Composite on Vimeo.

This is a quick animation test I slapped together just to see what the final outcome looks like in motion. First render was done with Final Gathering. Second render was done using separate passes to speed up rendering. Rendering took forever on a classic Quad Core Intel desktop. Purpose of the the render tests was to explore different rendering styles to use as a fixed production pipeline. Personally, I like it better with Final Gathering, it's just not the same without it.

I need to have an intel core i7 with six cores in the least if I ever want to get this short film done. Sigh ... time and money.

1st Character Design: Jason Chow

Hello everyone,

This is my first official blog. I'd like to keep everyone updated on what I'll be creating on my free time. So what I have in mind is a funny Kung-Fu character with a Chibi concept in mind. His rival will be a Ninja, who's design will follow soon.

Original Character Concept

Character Profile: Front & Side 

Facial Expressions

And that's just scratching the tip of the iceberg. Characters will then be modelled in 3D and animated.
Hopefully this will be updated constantly as I progress. I really look forward to sharing how everything was created and put together from start to finish. Until next time  ^_^
