Sculpting and Animating an Aardman Inspired Character

Aardman is my favorite animation studio. I've been inspired for years by their work. Who knows, perhaps one day I'll have the chance to work with them. :) Aa...

that was really cool man. I enjoyed that.. you made me realise how I can just keep it simple and get on with the animation.. the tendency these days is to try and do it all, and do it professionally, people want to imitate the movies that inspire them.. naturally we all love these films.. but trying to imitate them is just kind of crazy, when you consider the scale or talent, skill, and resources available in a movie like that.. we got to keep it simple, easy, manageable.. you had some great subtle animation there, it really impressed me.. I love to see you lip sync some audio next that would be cool, or maybe just a smile, or a laugh, or just a wave.. I don't know, I enjoyed the focus on the eye / face animation you done.. I may try my own now.. you sort of inspired me.. I say sort of because I'm trying to keep my focus on Foam Latex, that's why I came on here to learn about, following Justin Rasch, and now I'm watching your video.. lol.. I am all over the place... good work man.. I hope to see more..
