    uniE608 Arcade Avatars - Animated Short / Pilot
    'Arcade Avatars' is an animated opening sequence inspired by 'Dunegons & Dragons' but is a modern take of the cartoon series, re-imagined for modern day audiences. It features 14 characters, including the 5 protagonists that enter the arcade world and change into their avatar forms. The group must battle through the enemies and antagonists in order to return back to their world. After a lot of research into 1980s and modern day cartoon representations we created the storyboards, animatics and video reference materials to help support the animation. Following from this we designed, modelled, textured, rigged and animated all characters in the animation, as well as the 3D environment. #3D #video #animator #3Danimation #animation #animated #3Dmodel #3Dmodelling #3Dcharacter #character #3Dcharacteranimation #characteranimation #pilot #animatedshort #animatedpilot #short #autodeskmaya #mayaWW
