Part 3, Finished.

So over a month later, Obstacle Course Part 3 for Advanced Body Mechanics is complete. I can see many successes and failures in this, and it'll be useful for learning either way. I enjoy the leap, roll, and climb, even if there are some robotic moments throughout.

I'm still setting up a version that links all three pieces together, it's coming along. Trying to clean up a few things too along the way, so that could help. I'll post that when it's ready, hopefully in the next few days.

Silhouette Tutorial Clip

Made a super quick "tutorial" on how to make a character silhouette in Maya. Pretty self explanatory stuff, but I know some people aren't used to the quirks of a tool, and maybe wouldn't think to try something like this out. Heck, I didn't really think of it till just now, and it already seems like a good idea.

Here's the video clip, using my current project as an example. May update this later if I get any feedback on how to make it more useful, but it's such a simple concept that it may be all it needs. Assuming you already know how to use layers anyways.
