More 3D Animation Goodies!

Here are some of Mike’s recent 3D versions of ‘Charlie Hippo’. Mike is still plugging away creating 3D versions of the Zaptoons characters, and figuring out how to rig* and animate them. Mike has been building these models using the 3D modeling and animation program, Maya. This is one of the most commonly used applications in the animation industry, used in virtually every 3D animated film or TV show from the likes of Pixar, Disney and Dreamworks.

Charlie Hippo comes alive in 3D!
*Note: Rigging is the term for applying the mathematic ‘bones’ inside a 3D character that allow it to move and bend like a puppet, according to real world constraints.
