Download my creatures

So I had all of last week off from work. That gave me just enough time to do a few things that I've been meaning to do. One of those things was laundry. Another one of those things was to share some of my creature rigs online. There is a Quadrupedal creature and a deer (for the creature to eat of course). Check them out on Let me know if you enjoy them, and send me animations if you make some with them!

This seems like a pretty staight forward question. Thanks to newer technology, many people are having a hard time definig just what qualifies as an "animated" film.

This article in Variety describes the truly difficult question of what defines an animated film these days.
