Experiments with Airbending

My kids and I have been watching the Avatar series – both The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. We love so much about the universe – the mysticism, the fight choreography, the factions, the individual journeys. It’s so so good and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to dive in!

I made a quick and dirty low-poly model of Aang to try out some ideas with a character controller. I also rigged a staff that actually folds out into his signature air glider. I honestly don’t have much of a goal here and am just enjoying aimlessly adding to its abilities with stepped framed animations. It’s really satisfying to try out ideas with 2-3 frames of quick poses and have it running around on screen in a matter of minutes without getting caught up in polish and refinement!
