Ribeye 3D short!

Well, I’ve been really busy practicing with Maya lately and with a bit of time on my hands right now being between jobs, I have begun animting the first Ribeye the Bullbarian 3D cartoon! Granted it’s no Incredibles but it will be pretty cool if I do say so myself.

Today we recorded the dialog and my daughter Melissa played the part of Cubesteak. With a little bit of pitching down of the voice she sounds just like a 10 year old boy! Have a listen!

Also here’s a render from one of the scenes. We’d love to hear your comments!


This was rendered in a program called Maya which is the premiere program used for 3D films today. great studios such as Pixar and Dreamworks have used this software to create such hits as Shrek, the Incredibles, Shark’s Tale and Finding Nemo.

Granted I must admit I did not do the modeling for this scene; that was done by Trentity DeWitt. I only did the animation for this one scene which Harry will post in the next few days. I have plans do do an entire short film of Ribeye telling Cubesteak a story around the fire just like on the back cover of the first book, Ribeye and the Jewel of Baloni.

I have to say I have not been so excited about anything in quite some time as the thought of having two books of ours out! Awesome! I’m also loving animating again as I haven’t done that in a while either. Ahhh well, God works in strange ways doesn’t He? Out of work and happy! Imagine!
