As another week rolls around and Christmas gets that 1 week closer we're given our two tasks to complete. the return of the 2D task saw us animate two Cubies 1 big 1 small and make them interact with one another. As for the 3D task, there was the same concept of interaction but this time between Cubie and a little ball.

I started with the 3D task as Maya was still fresh in my head. Having been told that this was the last time we would animate Cubie in 3D, I decided to give him a big send off by doing around 15 seconds of animation, which may seem small but at the time felt borderline epic. Having planned out what was going to happen I started to key frame all the moves, which took most of the time. I animated all of Cubie first then animated the ball second, though problems arose when I had to animate both together. I've gotten into a routine of key framing, checking the graph editor, then rinse and repeat, so I won't bore you by going through each key frame. Overall I was pleased with the result, however I'm not too happy with the twist at the end as I felt it looked odd to have the feet spin as well.

On to the 2D and a little pressed for time I decided on going for something plain and simple. Little Cubie jump, Big Cubie scares him. After Simply drawing out the frames i played back the animation though appearing ok it was too quick meaning that you could not see the anticipation in the jump which makes the animation look a little strange. Not much more I can really say than TiMe MaNiGmEnT
