AnimatorSteve - Stephen Vyas - Breakdown of Fight Animation

https://vimeo.com/196117478

Animating a fight with multiple characters is tough.

For every contact, the silhouette needs to be extra readable with a clear line of action.
I think this fight is a good example if you want to animate one!

Stephen Vyas drew over some of the contact poses to show the importance of line of action and silhouette.

The Artistry Of 'Samurai Jack'

If you were watching Cartoon Network in the late '90s and early 2000s, you probably have Genndy Tartakovsky to thank for some of your favorite cartoons.

But one of his cartoons stands above the rest as a visual and animated masterpiece — "Samurai Jack." With it's unique drawing style, distinct minimalist feel, and perfectly choreographed action sequences "Samurai Jack" has gone down as a seminal work in cartoon history.

Never having received the ending it deserved, "Samurai Jack" is finally returning to Adult Swim this weekend to finish the epic animated tale started way back in 2001.

ICARE (Icarus)Teaser

From Cartoon Brew... The Greek myth of Icarus serves as the basis of the film, but there are some new twists to this classic tale about a boy who flies too close to the sun. “The idea is to imagine the youth of the young Icarus, a part that goes unmentioned in the myth as we know it,” Vogele told Cartoon Brew. In Vogele’s version, the story will focus on the friendship between Icarus and the Minotaur, both of whom are portrayed as outcasts.

The logline:

The cheerful gods of the Olympus are rewriting the myth of “Theseus and the Minotaur” from the perspective of Icarus, who befriends the young Minotaur hidden in the royal palace of Knossos. When King Minos imprisons the “monster” in the secret labyrinth, Icarus risks it all to save his childhood friend and becomes entangled in a tragedy of manipulation and betrayal.

The Greek gods—Zeus, Poseidon and Aphrodite—serve as the narrators and spectators of the story. They are re-imagined as newspaper journalist-gods who are trying to craft their version of the story, and the story switches between them pulling the strings from above and the mythological story in ancient Crete. The gods are cg characters, but rendered with flat lighting to merge with the painted backgrounds, “like a moving illustration” Vogele described.

Ancient myths are the wellspring of contemporary superhero stories, and Vogele believes that returning to the source will yield rich material for a film. “The mythical heroes are ruthless and relentless,” he said. “They are archetypes who will sacrifice anything and anyone to fulfill their mad passion, no virtue too big, no vice too cruel. Their lack of empathy is truly chilling, but they are the bright-eyed defenders of their own justice and integrity, which makes them fascinating.”

Nicolas Steil, Iris Group CEO and producer of Icarus, is setting up the film as a co-production with still-to-be-determined studio partners in Belgium and Germany.

The family film has a targeted completion date of 2019. The budget is undisclosed for now.


Samurai Jack Season 5 Trailer | Samurai Jack | Adult Swim

It has been 12 years since a new episode of Samurai Jack.

But Jack is indeed back. The fifth — and final — season of the Emmy-winning Adult Swim animated series created by Genndy Tartakovsky finds the samurai still trapped in a dystopian future after Aku, the shape-shifting demon supreme Master of Darkness, destroyed all time portals. The bearded, armored-up Jack has stopped aging, a side effect of time travel.

“It seems he is cursed to just roam the land for all eternity. His past haunts him as well as a cult of assassins dedicated to killing him for Aku’s glory.”

Check out this clip from the season premiere, in which Jack faces down an army of robots with his spiked motorbike of death.

Adam Demo Executable Unity Assets Released

 

More here...


Adam executable download (size: 3 GB; Windows DX11 only)

It is expected to run 30 fps v-synced @ 1440p on a GeForce GTX 980 and Intel Core i7.


Adam Character Pack: Adam, Guard, and Lu – download  (size: 876.5 MB)

This package contains re-rigged versions of Adam, Guard and Lu.

For the original film we used per-character generic rigs with a lot of prebaked animation onto bones. However, for this release we decided that the characters would be more useful to you, if we rework them with the more flexible humanoid rig – so we did. We removed the additional rigs which were functional only outside of Unity, and made a small rigging tool which tries to replicate some of Adam’s shoulders functionality.


Adam Character Pack: Sebastian – download (size: 483 MB; Windows only)

This character was not reworked: we are shipping it exactly as it was used in the Adam demo. He has a complex rig and will be more difficult to reuse without doing quite a bit of additional work on your own. However, this pack is revealing for those of you who wanted to see exactly how we set it up.


Adam Interior Environment Pack – download (640 MB, DX11 only)

The Interior Pack gives insight into how we put together this environment. You would not want to use this approach in most game dev scenarios, but it is applicable to the production of cinematics, cutscenes, trailers.


VolumetricLighting – download (DX11 only)

We are shipping this isolated version as a more practical way to help those of you who would like to use the demo’s custom lighting and volumetrics in your own projects.


Adam Exterior Environment Pack – download (size: 2.7 GB; DX11 only)

Our main focus while building this environment was on the actual camera locations shown in the main demo.


More about Adam

The Unity Demo Team built Adam with beta versions of Unity 5.4 and our upcoming cinematic sequencer tool. To learn more about how we developed this demo, check out Adam’s web page for other blog posts, articles, and videos.

You may also want to check out the releases from our 2015 demo “The Blacksmith” (exterior, interior, characters, atmospheric scattering, hair shader, unique character shadows, wrinkle maps). We are not diligent in keeping them up to date, but we see many of you still find them useful. You can find more Unity demos in the Demos page.


Aria for a Cow

Aria for a Cow - Final H263 Stereo HD from Aria for a Cow on Vimeo.

Aria for a Cow is an animated musical short based on a previously unreleased song by the Oscar winning team of Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (“Little Shop of Horrors”, “Little Mermaid”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Aladdin”).
When a callow young farmer shows himself to be completely uninterested in the sensitive art of milking a dairy cow, Aria, a bovine diva, along with her singing and dancing back up bulls, belts out a tune demanding to be respected for more than just dairy products. Aria and her friends take us through a fast- paced musical journey. In the end, our young farmer learns to respect the collaborative effort that made Krelborn farms and its cows an award winning dairy farm.
