The Magic of Movement in Oya

3D Animator Explores Gymnastic Movement

This week we were followed by Damon on Twitter (@MinnowsAbyss). Damon is the creator of “Oya”, a 3D animated gymnast. Damon uses the character to explore the artistry in the movement of gymnasts; and even examines the trajectories of movement in some of his YouTube videos.

“The Oya Project is a personal project for the creation of 3D computer animation and simulation. The project currently consists of six character animation movies of a fictional character named Oya. The rhythmic ball animation was the first to be completed. It was pieced together using movement from more than thirty dancers and gymnasts. Animated Gymnast.”
