Steampunk Project - Complete

With the deadline just a couple of days away I have finished my first second year university project with time to spare.

Even though this was my first foray into 3D animation I am extremely pleased with my finished result as well as astounded at the ease with which I was able to animate after laying all of the groundwork and rigging my character.

Having entered my second year unsure of a more specific area of the industry I wanted to head towards, I am much more confident after completing this project that animation is definitely something I could easily see myself continuing with in the future.

Whilst I find some parts of the animation pipeline tedious or time consuming I understand their importance as well as how having one aspect of an animation be weaker than the rest can still bring down the entire piece.

I can say without a doubt that the most enjoyable part of this project for me was the animating and bringing the model I had made to life with the simplest of movements.

Here is my completed animation.
