3D Bouncing Ball with "squash and stretch" technique.
This is my bouncing ball that I created using Autodesk Maya 2016. The two videos show the same ball but bouncing at different angles. I am a perfectionist so I was quite stressed out at first because I felt that I couldn't get anything right especially because I am new to Maya but I didn't give up and finally I finished it. I feel that the "squash and stretch" technique here really adds to the ball's character and therefore makes the animation overall more believable. Although working in 3D is difficult for me at the moment I am up for the challenge and can't wait to do some more 3D work soon!
