I couldn't let go of the idea.

You're probably in for a surprise too...



I will later reveal how it's done.

the chewing noises during the credits... that's just wrong on so many levels... ;-)

(The T-Rex really looks good! The movement is believable too!)

Thank you Pat!

Yeah, I couldn't give up on it. It was not easy, but I did it... It's still in an early modelling stage, but I had to first test animating with it.

I'm looking forward to seeing everybody else's reaction to your accomplishment here...

also looking forward to seeing how you did it!

I think I can sum up everyone's reaction - WTF?! How did you do that? Amazing!, etc. Really impressed by the biting action and whichever devious way you got her into the mouth. Awesome Ikes - see, told you that would be your nickname Big Grin

Thanks all for the replies!

I will explain how I did the T-rex. There is a version for head movement and one for walking. Because he takes big steps, you can't actually let him walk from point A to B, his feet will slip on the floor. But you can let him walk in place and move the background.

In this see-through you can see the character is standing on an invisible raised platform. The head of the t-rex is attached to the face mask socket. All the jaws are connected to the other face sockets, which visibilities can be key-framed under the character properties.



The body for walking is attached to the waist socket, the one for head movement has it at the neck socket.
The tail is attached to the tail (duh)
The legs are connected to the feet on about the knee hight. To avoid his legs going almost horizontal, I found that the angry mood walk is the best one. All running is too exaggerated to be used, his legs are going through his tail.

The biting part was done with key-framing the visibility of the jaws as well as the running/static girl. I made a static pose of the girl in the mouth, that was attached to the hair socket. I had some glitches however with rendering. Some rendered frames showed the jaw as a grayed translucent object, like you suppose to see only in the viewport as invisible, not on a camera. It also varied on multiple renders, sometimes it happened, sometimes not... strange.

This is still an early version, maybe I'm going to detail it further and make it available in the store, if there is a demand for this creature.

I modelled the hole thing with sculptris. The texture was something I googled for reptile skin. It fitted quite well actually.

Over scaling it all, of course, shoulda guessed. Actually Fazz68 did a similar trick with a robot to create ED209, but the jaw movement - wow, hadn't thought of keying the visibility of positioned objects to animate something, that's genius that is Applause

Did you have to offset the axis zero points of the jaws to get them that far away, or is that using the 'tweak' <cof> to move them further out?
