Combat Exercise - Interpablocking 3

Got some very helpful feedback from Isabelle!  I'm going to polish as much as possible and then probably render this by the end of the month so I can participate in the next 11 second club.  I'm much much happier with this now than from when I started.  Learned so much!

Combat Exercise - Interpablocking 2

Added breakdown poses and adjusted timing. Time to interpolate!

Also, as suspected the gimbal lock issues are pretty bad...

Combat Exercise - Interpablocking 1

Lots of changes!

- Changed the object the blue ninja is hanging onto, and made it bend based on his movements
- Finessed Blue's head scarf in shot 2
- Extended shot 3 with a crazy move that involves tons of constraints (and I'm terrified to interpolate due to there most likely being a bajillion gimbal locks).

The ending is sort of a placeholder right now - I got a bit lazy after the whole 'quarterstaff twirl' sequence :P.

Combat Exercise - Interpolation 1

Got some VERY helpful critiques from Brian Kim especially regarding the general weighting.  Shot 3 (the fight sequence) is very difficult but also fun.  The timing/weighting is a continual challenge..

Combat Exercise - Blocking 3

Interestingly enough, this month's 11second club competition involves just sound effects, so pretty much just involves body mechanics/movements.  I think this was an interesting practice for body mechanics so I might hop on that next!  But first, I have to interpolate this exercise!...
