This is the formation of how my fruiting body will grow, I'm not entirely happy with it so i do believe there will be some changes to it. I thought this part of the animation would be the easiest to animate, but i was drastically wrong. Its nice and simple to model with the out come being the most interesting of the stages, but animating it to grow was quite tricky indeed.
I animated this using blendshapes, starting with the fished model and worked backwards through some stages. Any suggestions on other ways of doing so???
