20: I feel good!

What did I do over the weekend. Other than some animating, I got some sleep! It was great. You may have noticed there were about 4 days of no animation. Well, probably not, who actually looks at the date? But I was exhausted. So I slept in on Saturday, and then had a 4 hour nap on sunday. Such that animating yesterday and today was great.

This particular shot has Maggie's hands completely off of the screen. This allowed me to rotate her without worrying too much about how to make it look realistic.

This shot and the previous shot was inspired from Tom-Yum-Goong, when Tony Jaa goes up against the Capoeira fighter. I actually want to put more flips and such in there, but we'll see.

Anyways, to explain this shot, I actually went and looked up the names on peeron! Mind you, I also have a picture too, but I figured I may as well call things by there real names as opposed to grey thing and black thing.

I took two "1x1 Tiles with Clip" and placed them on a "Turntable 2x2 Plate". On the 1x1 Clip Tiles, I put an "Antenna 4H" and then I had Maggie hold onto that. There. That was a lot of work, trying to find out what all those things are. I also learned what a "Tap" was, or I now know the name of that thing. All goodness.

Anyways, the first red guy getting kicked goes too fast again, but his feet when he falls is perfect. At least I got something right.
