3D Practice

This is a scene I made, to practice some 3D/Maya Animation.
It was mostly done by using key frames and not much tweaking of splines in the Graph Editor. Maybe I can find a good tutorial somewhere about giving more punch to the animation by tweaking the splines. I signed up for lynda.com for their Maya Essential Training tutorial, Highly recommended! Thanks for letting me know about this, Mitch!
The character rig is from 11secondclub.com

Pretty good Amir! I wasn't aware that you had a handle on Maya!

This I mist say- even though I can't use sound on the computer I'm using now- I could tell that your animation had the character say something that rhymed with "live". So I'd say your lip animation is very good.

In fact, I found all of your animation takes effective- even without sound.

Very good Maya animation, Amir. Doesn't seem easy to do though.

Sorry about the comment that I submitted on Sunday's post. I just wanted to express my thoughts on that subject and that I wasn't trying to start any controversy with it.

Thanks Mitch, Austin and Roberto!

Roberto- I thought your comment was good, I tried to publish it but it kept giving an 'error' page.
