Alright, I finally finished up the animation for Raul Domingo. In addition to all I did before, I now know how to lip sync, use the NLA editor, and do some other pretty neat stuff. I technically know how to make him blink, but I was having some technical difficulties and wanted to get the animation going, so I skipped that for now. Part of the animation involved creating facial expressions for Raul so that he could speak and show basic emotions. Here are some of the facial expressions. (Link to the videos below)
And you can see the animation at the bottom of this page: drop the bomb productions CG Animation.
I hope to do some more complex animations, build some nicer backgrounds and props, and add some hair and clothes. Ambitious? Sure, but VERY fun!
