This was a college project I did a couple of months ago, where the brief was to come up with a piece of first-person dialogue, about a minute long, then model and animate a CGI character in an interview-type situation.

So, I chose Rincewind, naturally :) He was great fun to animate, although a little hard to model in 3D whilst trying to make him look like the way I generally draw him. My apologies if my various attempts at compressing this and converting the file type have caused and syncing problems with the dialogue and made is sound al compressed, and apologies also for the file size! This was as small as I could get it :)

The vocals were provided by my wonderful colleague Tim Andrews, and were combined extracts from Sourcery and Interesting Times. Created in 3DSMAX.

I love how he looks and how he talks :)) I envy those with animation skills...my oc's just exist on paper....and the closet thing to them moving is customizing them into games (or try too..most of the time i try to make their "human" versions on things )...

By far the best animation I've come across here amidst the Deviants. It even makes me find Rincewind a tad less irritating.

I can well imagine your take would the way Sir Terry himself would want his world visualized in animated form. My humble congrats.

Discworld is series of books written by Terry Pratchet
It's a fantasy/comedy series with many charaters, storylines and it's moderatly unimportant what order you read them in
The animation is Rincewind, a Wizzard*... of sorts who people depend on who can't do magic, who goes on exciting travels that he dosn't want to go on and whose best talent is running away :D

*Rincewind spells wizard that way

Ah so wonderful, the lighting really gives it great effect. The character design is excellent too, though the only thing I'd say might need a bit of tweaking is his lack of expression in his upper lip- I think it should articulate a little more. I hope you got the worlds best mark on this because it's too great

I found this first on youtube. This is awesome, and pretty well executed =)

I keep thinking that the eye balls are sunk into the sockets a bit more than they should be, but that's about it. You can see the excess room between the eyeballs and the bottom lids when he turns his head to the sides especially, but you can also see the space when he's facing us too.

Good stuff!
