Bowling Animation

For my animation I decided to make a bowling alley. I thought it would be really hard and complex, but it was more of really small steps and a few obstacles. The biggest problem I had was figuring out how to make the bowling ball look realistic. At first it was just to figure out how to make it look 3-D and then after I figured out how to do it, I had the make the ball get smaller and smaller as it rolled down the lane. To fix the 3-D issue, I used a gradient and made the ball look brighter near one surface of the ball. To make the ball gradually get smaller, I added more keyframes in and just made the ball a little smaller at each keyframe. Making the bowling pins go flying was pretty simple because I just added a rotation to them. Overall, I am happy with the outcome of my project.
