How I made two love bird's on a branch for the Mardini daily challenge.Build uses KineFx, VEX, and some good old fashion keyframe animation.

This year I was fortunate enough to have five wins during the Mardini challenge. I took two 2nd place, three 3rd place wins, and finished in 10th overall. I decided to make breakdown / tutorials of all of these winning entries, as well as some of my other entries that I enjoyed making. Even if they didn't win.

Some highlight points of the breakdown video:
