this year (second year) we're doing 3d animation in autodesk maya, and these are from the first week. the first 2 are pretty squashed in the format, because i didnt know how to do proper playblasts at the time... :)
the assignments were:
1. do a bouncing ball.
2. do a bouncing ball with smaller and smaller jumps, and one jumping up and down.
3. build an environment for your ball-with-attitude.
4. do a ball with an attitude, in your own environment.
5. do a sqaush bouncing ball - do two balls interacting with each other.
