This is what I call character animation

Cameron Fielding.  Animator.  To say the images speak for themselves, is an understatement.  Well, press the play button and see.  If I could character animate half as well as this guy, I would be a very happy man indeed.

Character animation has never been a strong point for me.  Organic modelling is something I don’t get a lot of time to do professionally and on occasion I feel that I am losing my skills a bit in this department.

Saying that, when I see something as wonderful as this, I realise that I am happy to be able to see work of this quality even if I can’t achieve it myself.

WEBSITE FIXED!!!!

Thankfully my wonderful lservice provider has helped in getting my site fixed.  It seemed that there was a permissions problem in the linux server for some unknown reason.

Anyway, it’s going back up as I type, so please take it easy on the downloads and PLEASE don’t hack the site and take everything in one go.

Whether this messed the permissions or not I would like to keep my bandwidth at it’s current cost.  If people want unlimited downloads, then I shall have to put in a paypal button to pay for it and heaven forbid that happening.

Speak to you later!

My Maya Tutorials are back online

Hello there, long time no blog.

Well, I am delighted to let you know that the tutorial section of my website is back up and running.  About time too.  There are 33 tutorials covering a wide range of topics from modelling objects, through animation, dynamics, rendering and some compositing. 

I have some more up and coming – one in particular about nCloth which will go up in a couple of months that shows exactly how to make it… well, you’ll have to wait.   Wow, I’m such a tease.

Anyway go to http://www.garynoden.co.uk follow the link to tutorials and check them out.

Here are some images of the Computer Arts Projects tutorial in magazine 117 that I wrote.  Doing something and then seeing it in print is just an amazing sensation.

Showreel 2008

Well, it’s finally finished, and I should have it up on the website sometime in the next couple of weeks, but my new reel – albeit a product of a lot of old and some new work – will be up and visible at some time in the not too distant future on my website.

Due to one or two things on their not actually being out in the public domain yet, I will have to keep it back for a while, but I am pretty happy with the results so far.

I might tweak it though, I’m a bit of a beggar for that sort of thing!

Anyway, when it does go up, I hope you like it
