Animation and Game Design student Timmothy Drury did an excellent job on his final exam for AM204, Character Setup.  The final exam consisted of an odd little character that students were given two and a half weeks to create a skeleton, bind, paint weights, and create controls for so that the character could be animated without problems.  Students were then to test this character by doing an animation range of motion test.  This exam put to use what students had spent the entire quarter learning, but in a different way.  Part of character setup is using what you know to solve complex problems.  Timmothy's character was not only well rigged, but had a very good range of motion test. The character had weight, balance, and personality.  This is significant, as Timmothy has not yet had any character animation classes.  He shows promise for his classes in the future.  Very good work, Tim!
