Well, here is my first foray into animating in Maya. The assignment was to take our Lego project from last year and animate it. Since I did Star Trek Legos for that project (something that is sorely missing from the Lego Universe) I thought it would be fun to do a memorable scene from the original series. This is from the episode “Arena.” I assembled the image sequence and added audio in Adobe After Effects. Kirk’s hair and the Gorn’s head were sculpted in Mudbox.
I’m pretty happy with it. There are a couple of things that I would like to fix, which I’ll probably work on for our next assignment which is adding dynamics. I think I’ll just add them to this scene.
