Ichigo 3D model animation test
Created in Maya 2014, model created by me, animation from mocap data in Maya.

Just a quick cloth simulation test of an Ichigo model I created, it's not perfect as there are some penetrations and there's no hand animation but I'm only concerned that the cloth doesn't get tangled up too much. I'm planning on using it for an upcoming animation, I might post a few videos along the way to show it's development. Any feedback is appreciated!

And I know Ichigo doesn't do kung fu or dancing but I thought it would be fun to watch him do them =p

Hey all, wanted to show you guys a screen capture of what I'm working on right now, just so that you know I'm still creating stuff! This summer I'm planning to animate a fight scene with Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach, so I've been busy these past couple of days figuring out Maya's toon shaders and find out what works best. Ichigo's hair was probably the hardest part since it has to look good from every angle, and when I apply toon lines they just end up all over his hair (why does is it have to be so damn spiky?!! ) If anyone has any tips on cell shading in Maya that would be very helpful!

First of all, thanks to all the new people who've watched me and thanks to everyone who's watched my latest animation (if you haven't already watch it now!! www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iVJEi… It's been a pretty big project of mine and I've been working on it for quite some time, I'm just glad it's finished... it feels like such a heavy burden has been lifted off me now. I guess it's sort of been my dream to create a battle with different anime and video game characters. I'm also happy it's got a lot of positive feedback, I wasn't really expecting this much :D Anyway, I'm not too sure what I'll do next ^^; I think I'll take a break from animating for now and perhaps start drawing more (I don't think I'm too good at drawing atm so I think I'll practice a bit before I submit anything) I would also like to create some vocaloid music videos some time in the future. As for a sequel to this animation, I have a few ideas for it (some characters I'd like to include are Raiden (MGS), Ulquiorra (Bleach) and Caius Ballad (FF13-2) ) but I haven't given it a lot of thought, and I probably won't start it for a long time anyway. But if you have an idea or want a character in it then please comment below! ^^

Also, I'm hoping to upload it to niconicodouga (I guess it's sort of like Japan's version of youtube) since after all, all these characters do have Japanese origins so it may be well received there too. If somebody can and would like to translate my script to japanese please let me know!

You should do some awesome anime fight between Naruto and Goku or Ichigo. Especially Naruto Senjutsu of the Six Path!

I think you should because the fans would want an epic long battle between Naruto and Goku.

Seeing how Naruto has gain powers that rivals a deity.

Hey it's been a while! :D I just finished Ichigo's body now so now I have to create his bankai clothes, then rig him. Then I'll model and animate one of the fight scenes from Bleach. All in 2 months. Maybe... (knowing me it will probably take much longer XD )

Dude check this out.3d animation that was made to look like 2d:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKGPhK…

It really looks like 2d anime.Unreal engine was used for rendering.I am actually trying to research how they made it look so anime like.I might be using 3d afterall for my animations.Currently occupied with my archviz masters project using UE4.

:o Damn that looks good! Some parts really do look like they were hand drawn. I think the low frame rate helped with that, to match up with the same frame rate as 2D anime. I considered lowering the frame rate of my previous animation but was a bit skeptical as I thought it would look too choppy, but I might try doing that for my next one seeing how it looks good here.

Exactly,I read somewhere the real trick to it was they used stepped animation only.The same way u would animate in 2d.That just makes animating way easier.That also means u don't need a complex rig to get the job done.Just pose by pose is good enough.
