Playing around with some new models uploaded to the Steam workshop while practicing more IK-rigged animation and lipsyncing. God bless the TF2 community makers!  

Audio is from the Ring of Fired dub, highlighting the voices of Lunarch and Druox as Grey Mann and Saxton Hale.

Where did you actually get the enhanced Saxton model? I've been trying to find it with no luck....

I believe Maxxy and a few people are working on a new one.

Sounds awesome, I'm sure it'll turn out great! I just had a quick thing I wanted to make for a friend and thought a posable face might be nice. =\

Lunarch does an excellent job with villains and gravelly voices, I hope to work with him personally in the future! 

And thank you, it feels good to make progress! :D

I've watched this a few hours ago, but and I can clearly see that you have gotten better, since your last video.
Really lliked what you did with Gray Mann, at the beginning and the IK rig, is a very good choice too. ( never look back at FK, if you want to finish your animations in this century. )

To add some criticism: The pelvis should always move, especially with cartoony animations like the one you did with Hale.
That pixelated cloud background is ehm... okay for a test video.

And respect for making an adaptation of that comic. Comic adaptations should really be a thing, now that we have all these cool models and tools.

Thanks you for the crit and I'm glad you liked it! I added some idle animating to the pelvis before the last part where I realized there was literally no motion attached to the pelvis after Gray Mann answers him back. I forgot how important pelvic animations are with this sort of thing.

For the skycard: it's super poopy. I worked on a black screen and I have no idea where any of those nice skybox cards that were on SFMBox are. I settled for "pot_of_gold.mdl" from the SFM beta files because it was all I could find, but in retrospect I should have set some DOF. DOF couldn't be set the way I wanted with Saxton AND Grey in the clip though. Either way, a skybox card would have worked better than what I used for sure. :lol:

Oh my god that was hilarious, and so well done too. I love the way you animated Gray Mann

Thank you, this is probably the best so far I've gotten with animating in SFM! Gray was fun to animate from being sinister to being outraged. :lol:

The Gray Mann one or the Saxton Hale one? If it's the Gray Mann one, it's pretty detailed for a TF2 model, I had way too much fun with it. If it's the Saxton one on the model itself, it's really tough to work with since the moustache likes to clip and some of these faces look derpy. If you're talking THIS particular Saxton Hale, it's so fuckin' derpy. I love it.

The saxton hale model here, there's just something about it that i don't like but i can't put my finger on it.

The face doesn't really resemble Saxton, there's not that much detail from the comics onto this model. gamebanana.com/wips/43008 I like this one myself if not a little put off by how overly toned the muscles seem to be, but for now, this one will do since it has facial flexes.

I really like how happy he was in stark contrast to Gray Mann. It's like, nothing will make Saxton Hale upset when he's focused on steak and eggs. :lol:

Thank you! Lunarch's Gray Mann is really good and Druox has been around for a while as Saxton, so the moment the HWM Saxton came out, I knew what I wanted to do. :)
