i travelled home for the holidays and was concerned about not being able to keep up on my work - for a graduation present / christmas / best son ever gift, my parents got me one of those new fancy macbook pro's with all the fancy software i needed... i have been able to update / finesse my final film and get it looking sharp for some festivals... there are two scenes which incorporate the 3d character which were not fitting in with the overall look of the film - so i been gone done learned myself some toonshaders in maya and played around a bunch with different looks in AE. here's what i got so far. the edits are gonna look real sharp animated!
here are some shots of the modeled character (designed by kory hubbell / modeled by jake black / rigged by levi harrison) - i stuck it in a quick pose and threw some lights on it. i am trying to decide if we want small pupils or zombie eyes...
all my time has been eaten up by my senior BFA project. these are just a few screenshots and concept pieces for the film... i wanted to do a project that touched on lots of different parts of animation: live action, effects, 2D, 3D, motion design, etc. i have a great team working on this with me.
i went out this evening with some friends to see another friend play at a small cafe - while she was performing i was doodling on a napkin. i was gonna bring my sketchbook but i didn't want to appear too anti-social. although i suppose someone drawing on a napkin looks more so...
