What About Bob?

EDIT: I've revised and rendered out the skull animation!
Download it here!


For the past week, I've been hard at work modeling a skull in Maya. It does double duty in my fandoms: give it blue eye lights and it's on its way to being Discworld's Death, or give it orange eye lights and it's Bob the skull from The Dresden Files. It's not finished by a long shot, but it's in a state where I wouldn't mind showing it off. Click the thumbnail for the full-size image!



Then this afternoon I decided to use Bob to teach myself how to lip-sync on something that has no lips.

Check it out here!

It's just 4mb. You'll probably want to rightclick+save to your hard drive, as I've found that trying to view the file directly tends to clip the first second or so. Audio is the panties-melting voice of James Marsters from the Storm Front audio book, brought to us by the lovely ladies at Buzzy Multimedia.

Ignore the little orange balls! I don't have the resources at home to render out the entire clip properly, and in this low-tech version, the little balls represent where the eye lights will be. Refer to the rendered still to see what it looks like in the alternate universe where I'm willing to fork over 600 bucks for Adobe AfterEffects.

Do it! Do it! They're so much fun, and 13 hours of listening to James Marsters is time well spent.

The first book is 8 hours, the second is 10, and the third is 11, and they just keep getting better as they go along. The fourth should be coming out in audio format in the next few months, I understand.

Gah, you are so amazing -- that looks awesome! And that would be not "some awe", but "full of awe". So perhaps it is awful. Or... perhaps not.

Heh, teethsinking. :D

LMAO... Remember: if, for some completely unreasonable and bizzare reason, you don't get abusrdly keen jobs with Disney/Pixar, you will still be (more than) qualified to do films like Pirates !
