Last year I was really fond of the youtube video format from "the animation squad" folks like Domics, Jaidenanimations and such who tell short stories humorously using cartoon characters.

I'd like to try doing something like that, except with 3D animations instead of drawn ones. I took a lot of time trying to come up with a look that I feel represents what I stand for, is easy to read, but also not boring on a conceptual level, I doodled this:

Then I spent some time coming up with a pallet. Since my favorite color is green, I wanted to make sure that was the main color, so around that I came up with the idea to use secondary colors for the pallet (Green, Orange, Purple).

Just finished rigging the model, 2 versions, chibi and less-so:

By the way, I am still planning on using Robin-Chan in videos too, likely the tutorials will feature both.

So I made a ton of poses:

In the past year I noticed a lot of channels coming up in the flavor of just talking about some topic or funny life expirence in the form of a cartoon, one of the best examples being JaidenAnimations :

Soooo I've been wanting to do something like that for a while, since it looks fun. I'm going to try and see if I can take my own spin on this format of videos, but instead of hand-drawn animation, doing it using models made in anim8or.

Hopefully I'll animate with this model on Youtube soon enough, probably after I'm done with the splash screen contest.

Great work! if you render with antialiasing you'll avoid those pixelated edges
