we were introduced to ZBrush on Tuesday so I went home and downloaded Sculptris (the free version woooo) and made this one evening. It’s obviously not finished but I’ve been enjoying learning how to sculpt so far.
Had to make it somewhat interesting so I went with some elf ears (although they looked like very Shrek-like ears for a while)
so we’ve dealt with showing emotion without dislodge so now I have to tackle lip-sync- I’m actually looking forward to it.
These are some concept sketches for my characters, my story is about a techy guy who’s homemade A.I goes wrong.
I’m planning on combining both 2D and 3D for this short cause gotta love those hand drawn backgrounds and I have a new found love for sculpting in 3D. Also the colour palette is going to be very blue (wow can you guess what my favorite colour might be??)
I got some col-erase pencils for Christmas so I can now have those pro animator looking concept sketches
and this is my idea for the setting for my animation. I think the main source light being only the PC monitor will create an interesting atmosphere and aesthetic feel.
adding some extra bits to my animation just to set the scene and all that
still needs some extra lighting and stuff in places but it’s looking good so far
“Sip” first edit from CJames on Vimeo.
Now that I’ve added some lights/shadows and some texture I feel like my animation is looking a little more complete. I’ve made sure to give myself plenty of time to fix any mistakes and do all those post-production stuff and things.
Finally added the table!!!!!!!! also added some steam and her cheeks go red after having a sip of the hot drink
In every project I find one thing I always put off doing. This time it’s adding the table into this scene. So simple…
just need to add the table, then it’s all good- now on to part twooooooooooo
At the 5 week mark for this project which means we’re halfway!!! ahhhhhh I think I’m making good progress
The legs and hands aren’t added yet as I want to add them once I’ve fully animated this line work (as they don’t have as much movement)
