Finals Week: Test Renders

These are several test renders for my assignment and upcoming short "Wide Rider".

Our goal is to create a 30-second short by the end of next term using at least one
character and prop. My character makes it to the top of a water slide just to find out that he's forbidden to ride it. When he goes down anyway, hilarity ensues?

These screenshots show the sort of look and feel i'm going with. I'd say my inspiration is a cross between bugs bunny cartoons and the Team Fortress 2 environments.

Lastly we were required to present 30 seconds of our animation as an "animatic", clearly conveying the shots and key poses of the story. I'm hoping to finish the whole thing early next semester to devote more time learning proper modeling and texturing.
