Today was my last day at Muucine. I had an AWESOME time there, to say the least. Really great group of artists, all very talented. Thanks a lot guys!! I’ll miss you!! Gracias chicos, se les extraniara 🙂

An old picture with some of them (yep, the same people who helped me win the Scavenger Hunt at AM by dancing like crazy, haha):

I’ll start working this Monday on another production company called Gizmo. We’ll see what the future brings.

Hey everyone!!

I’m not using AM ball rigs for the first assignments. I’m using a rig I did following the awesome rigging tutorials by Jason Schleifer.

I find it has more flexibility in the SS control, since it has rotation independence from the main control of the ball and you can change the SS pivot to anywhere you want.

You can download the ball here: BALL RIG

It has a simple ramp texture applied pretending to be a basketball, haha.

Have fun!!

Victor Escardo, a really talented and passionate animator from Uruguay and fellow student at AM, handed me this link:

Go to the Tutorials section and be sure to check every single bit of info in there 🙂

Thanks a lot Victor!!!

I’m starting to realize this could be more than a space about myself only, haha. That’s just too boring!! I think it’s time to start sharing more and more.

Lets share 🙂

End of Class 1
Ok, this is a sad but happy moment. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this way for school. I mean, I do want to take a break (because I had to work my ass off, haha) but I really want to keep learning from such great people (mentors and students). Last Q&A was really fun, […]
