edit: replaced with a close-up version because the original was laughably tiny

Had an itch to do some 3D after not doing some for a while, and decided upon a Kiwimon since it has a pretty simple design. Did a simple walk cycle a couple weeks ago just to test the rig and practice animation again. I want to animate other actions with the character, but just haven't had time to yet :( So uploading this for now.

Any crits on the model and animation are very welcome! Though the render is low/preview quality. Maybe I'll render a full quality version when I get a chance.

I created all assets - the model, rig, animation, shaders (lol what shaders) and lighting. It's all hand animated/no simulations were used. Everything was made in Maya.

Kiwimon is a character from Toei's Digimon series.

This is really neat, and here I thought I wasn't going to be able to see it either. xDDD;; Well I'm glad I got to at least. ^^

He's a cute little rubbery looking fellow. xDDD <333 Makes me think of the animation/graphic they have for Milo & Kate I think it was. The world that they are going to have it in is kind of soft and childlike, it's really interesting.

I know what you mean, I used to never be able to view animations on deviantart, but it's a lot better now than years ago. I'm glad you got to see it too ^^

Thanks ^^ What animation/graphic is this? Is it a movie or series or something else?

Yeah that too! xD DA back in the day was horrible for viewing animations or really large images.

It's for a video game on the Xbox 360 Kinnect. It uh is where you talk to this kid in the game and you build a relationship with them. It hasn't been released yet but that's what they've been going for.

WHOA!!!

I think that about sums my reaction. Really. This is LOW quality...??? Now I wonder what the high quality version looks like!

It's walking on a very shiny floor. :XD: And its head reminds me of Cubone for some reason. O.o;

The quality just refers to the rendering, so the high quality version would be the same just without that slight flicker in the lighting xD

Yes xD I had fun making a shiny floor xD Should put some kind of electronic like a phone or laptop next to it xD Now that you mention it, it does! It has a beak under there, though you can't see it from this angle. I also gave it a tongue, so when it opens its beak its tongue sticks out :D

Oh. :XD:

But then you'd have to make the background scroll if you put objects in it. ^^; That'd be great though.

:XD: I wanna see! :XD:
