walking reference

For my own personal use really, Ive added a link to a walk cycle from the hitman game of the Hitman walking with a brief case in his left hand. Sheer luck that its spot on what i need. I like the shift in weights and casualness of the walk

SHOT 2 Opening pose

So we can finally animate the hitman. So far so good. No animation as of yet but ive got the starting pose of the dude

out a jiggle on the jacket as i think it looks pretty damn good and ultra realistic and will make animation look slick and too good. Gonna add it to the sleeve too and this will be ready to go. when animating though it needs to be disabled otherwise it will lagggggggggggggggggggggggg

hitman fully weighted


I can reassuringly say the hitman is now fully weighted and maybe a touch here and there but its done for now. All that is left to do is the hand driven keys and the tie which means that the H man will finally be ready for animating on monday. Although it is not the best rigg in the world but it will be fine for our purposes as it has the functions required for this film. Good times!

weighting them damn shoulders...

Mate...taken me most of today to weight paint those damn shoulders cos its a pain in the arse. I do too much on one joint and it messes up the other and vice versa so i decided to put it in its most extreme position which is reaching forwards and weighting it till it looks ok. This is the point im at now and just a few more tweaks and we can start animating with this bad boy. the above is the unsmoothed version....rubbish right? and below is the smoothed version which i think looks pretty nice. But as i said a few more tweeks and were ready to rumble
