I'd be happy to make a tutorial, just tell me what exactly you want to learn. As for the use of 3ds Max, It's mainly because my friend who introduced me to 3D uses it. He let me play around with it for a while, I went home and downloaded the demo, eventually bought it, and at that point, it was too late to switch over to Maya. Although, I think M0le's explanation is also a good one.
On a side note, I made a new short animation, (nothing to do with Futurama). It's of a pink alien being stupid. I call him Ajax.

Thanks for offering to do up a tutorial!  I know the few areas that I've having issues with.(I think I just need some more practice but it would be helpful to have another person's perspective on it) Creating a bone structure for instance and the constraints on the joints.  I'm also wondring how you go about your modelling?  Do you box model or create splines then connect them all together?

The other issue I'm having problems with is on my Bender model.  He's basically finished but I'm trying to refine his chest door.  Right now I it's just one piece but I'd like it to be able to open etc...  Now I can't figure out how to refine the mesh to get the outline of the door in plaec.  Once this is finished, I figure I can just select and detach it and go from there.  I've tried making a spline and conforming it then attatching it to refine the mesh, create a chamferbox and work with the compound (This will at least give me the curved edges I need for the door)  Now whenever I compound it, the front part of Bender's body goes faceted when I do that which is no good.  I'm running out of ideas!  If you like I can send you my Bender model and you can have a peek at it to see what I mean.

Thanks again hobo!

Time for Hobo's weekly (or so) update! Everyone say woohoo!

Basically, Things are coming ok with the animation. I made the mistake of joining my highschool's track team, so I haven't had as much time as usual. Also, I've been coughing like no tomorrow, and the doctor has me all drugged up to make it better. Now that you've listened to my excuses, here's my progress:

-Was nearly 2/3 done with animating.
-Made most of a tuturial on how to make bender cool, then found out that I don't have a good screenshot program that will let me take pictures of my unrenderedviews in 3ds Max.
-Got distracted; and made Ajax, which none of you commented on before.*
-Got distracted again; made Super Fight*
-Lost a file (for the film that you all care about).
-Am in the process of remaking the file.


So there you have it, comments on the two animations are welcome.

*I'm really sorry about posting all of the non Futurama-related stuff, it wioll stop soon. Also, sorry for corying your little asterisk thing, Jinnacon.

So what's this film about? I was gone for a while and am too lazy to look back.

On a more futurama related note, and to keep my thread alive, I grant thee a shiny new background:

Way Hey!
My desktop is now all freaky mushroom Zoidy  big grin.

I can't wait for the film...
Have you thought about setting a release date, or would that cause too much pressure to get it finished on time?

Thanks! I'm about to buy some software called "Voice-o-Matic", which should speed up the time a lot. If I had to estimate, it might be ready by... June? Don't hold me to it though.

I bet you all thought I had left, didn't you? Well, I haven't. And I also haven't finished the fanfilm, but at least I'm working on it. In the meantime, here's something for you to enjoy-



...And the cel shaded version-



Comments?

Awesome! That Fry is just Awesome!!  I'm glad you're still doing these 3D pictures. Could we expect to see more characters in Animated GIF style?

Hobo, I thought you had died in a fit of rage induced by jealousy!

Great to see you back though!

And that cel shaded version is sliiiick.

Hobo,
that is just... wow! I can't believe you modeled a 3D Fry so well, but this time, I like more the Shaded version than the Cell version I usually like more in 3D images.

Thanks! I just felt a little bad about not having modelled anything for you in a while. Yes, I'll make an animated GIF with Fry very soon. As for the 404's, you should only get them for the first page or so. I don't know about the other ones...
