Minion Run, TMNT, and Inception Dialogue

I decided to animate something a little more subtle and with more subtext.  I went through some sound files and found this dialogue from the movie Inception.  About half way through I found a minion rig online through CG Meetup and had to download the rig and do something with it.  I haven't done a walk or run cycle in awhile so I decided to make one with the minion rig.  After completing the Inception piece I took a few days to work on a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle inspired piece.  It was a lot of fun and really challenging to get the character rotating three full rotations during the jump.  Thanks for checking my blog out! :D

Farewell Chico State and Ghosts Animation

Grades were posted about a week ago and I am officially done with college! Much thanks to Frank Pereira, John Pozzi, Jeff Underwood, Clark Steinbeck, and Mark Pullyblank for all of your help.  I worked incredibly hard during school and outside of school on animating and video game design.  
I finished this piece the other day.  I wanted to do something with cool stretching and fast movement.  I really like the Malcolm rig and love using the picker.  It really makes selection of the rigs parts a lot quicker and is well organized and easy to make your own custom pages with other rigs.   Thanks for your continued help Mark P. Thanks for checking my blog out! Enjoy! ;D
