There were two assignments due for my first computer animation module: an organic model (the minion example below this post) and a hard surface model. I modelled, UV mapped, textured, rigged and animated both, but my aim was to showcase different aspects with these two assignments.
So with the minion I focused on character animation, while with the hard surface example below I created a virtual set and employed camera angles for a cinematic approach. The robot animation was based on a character illustration I did a few years back. The character was a creation of mine for a writing project called Dead Land, and the character's name was Ramblebot. I've included a video character description along with the 3d animation assignment, with plans to develop the latter for my final Computer Animation assignment.
