The comment you put for this suggested you realized after the event of animating and not before. It's one of them moments I have trouble wording what I want to say. If it still does not make scene then how similar are the penguin rigs to each other?
I agree. It's a great place where anyone can feel welcome, regardless of their ability level. DA is also a wonderful resource for tutorials, brushes, textures etc. I love being here and am trying to get more of my peers to join.
@00:31They did a nice job rendering, adding textures to, and lighting the penguins to make them look so realistic, and the animation you did on them only adds to the charm. Lovely work! You just keep getting better and better!
@00:31X3 cool! The penguins look so real :3 From the commercials it looks like they're actor penguins but I bet it'd be really difficult to train a penguin to interact the way the penguins did in here :3 Really awesome job! X3
@00:31Thanks! They used real penguins as well throughout the show. We mainly animated them doing things that real penguins wouldn't know how to do. Like you said, it would be very difficult to train penguins to do some of the things required in the movie. That would also take a long time and would probably be very expensive, lol.
Yeah X3 Training wild animals for movies would definitely take forever X3 It'd be quicker to animate them :3 But I really like how you guys made the penguins look realistic in the animated parts :3 Hehe It's just awesome X3 I'll have to watch the movie at some point :3 It looks like a cute movie. And I still haven't seen Hop lol
