crappy video.
Deshret Trike

I'm trying to get a nice slow paced "trot" out of this thing.
somthing to set a calm before the storm kind of pace.

as you can see the bike has changed a bit and its almost done. id give it a 90%
aside from texturing and adding reflective shaders on some of those pipes.
some things need to be pushed around or resized a bit.
I also need to add in some dust and exhaust emitters
and mayve a flame emitter on the smaller pipes

the character has a terrible rig and bad weights, so theirs some warping and clipping in some places but i think you get the basic idea from the pose tho.
unfortunatly i forgot to give him an idle animation so he doesnt look so damn stiff.

may also need to get some of the engine parts to vibrate just so you know the bike is turned on.

used xvid to compress it

should have another go at it a week from now.
my wobbly camera work make anyone else wanna vomit?

yeah bar the wheels turning, I had no sense of movement. The character model is still so again you're not inclined to believe he's stationary apart from that it seemed pretty cool.

How bout now?

basicly the same. just with some character movement now.

personally i only like the last 2 seconds.
with the eye movment and the camera looks like he's about to speed away.

tried to have an idle knee tap kinda motion. turned out weird tho.

looks pretty damn good to me

if i needed to be picky, i'd say the bike's paint looks really blah. a stipe or something would help it a bit i think.

thge movement is kinda random, is he waving at the viewer :P


I was thinking about something smaller, chest rising and falling or slighty bobbing up and down cause by the trike engine vibrating.
