I'm finally free!!!!
Ah, just as I expected, I was not able to make a full animation, it takes a lot more time! So my final work is an animatic, but my topic was not a creation of the animation, it was the character design, so I got the highest mark ^^.
I want to share with you the animatic, because I will continue to work on this animated film and bringing it to the end. It's just a playblast from viewport of Maya, without rendering and animation. I will totally rebuild the environment, remodel the trees and other objects and repaint texture. And the boy needs another skeleton, because I made some mistakes in his skeleton, eh.
so here is it
Animatic from Mar-ka on Vimeo.
And here the the final concepts of the characters.
And here is my progress, looks like I have a ton of work here -.-
Did I say that I hate the Russian education system?
A few days ago I learned that my animation is not an important thing -.-, much more important to write a note on 60 pages. And another awful thing that the committee doesn't understand anything in the animations and films. They are economists, lol. This is all because of my institute was attached to the Higher School of Economics and now we are surrounded by economists.
Anyway, my work continues.
This weekend I spent in searching for a rig and i chose the "FREE RIG&SETUP AUTO v2.2
". i didn't test it much but looks like it something that works really good.
I think textures are done. Sometimes I forget that the boy is bald, haha. I hope I will do his hair soon.
I started to work on the monster. Here a rough zbrush model. I still have much work on it.
I decided to make textures in a painting style. Boots and eyes are not finished I just added some base colors. That is why it looks so rough.
back to texturing.
Watched “The croods”! =D Oh this is so emotional film! So epic!So many cute animals! Dreamworks amazed me again. I don’t remember how looks this cat, so I peeked from Chris Sanders’ drawings ^^
And a bit about my project. Сurrent stage pretty boring and slow but UVs finaly done!
I played with this
method of the whole week and I'm not sure that this is what I need, it is pretty slows down my computer =(. So the textures is still in progress.
Here super quick sketch just how I imagine the environment haha =)
back to work ;)
Oh, nothing to show today =(
I've got too many tasks at the studio, so I had very little time to work on the boy.
I'm working on UV's currently. I hope I will make the textures in the next weekend and some blendshapes.
And the small sketch to make this post not so empty
I think that can be called like: "I'm ready for spring, but the spring isn't ready for me"
