Light Conversation - Hunters

This was my animation project for this hellish term. It's nowhere near finished, but... yeah, it's not finished. I've been butting heads against software and the lecturer since late Feb and it's still the most complete out of the pieces though. :|

Hopefully once school reopens in 2 weeks we'll find that the final renders have completed without the server falling over or spitting out black frames.

This was handled in a round robin fashion. Everyone wrote a scriped, passed along for someone else to model, then passed along again for rigging, animation and comp. Done in 3DS Max, After Effects, Premiere Elements 1, MotionBuilder. Grr.

    It looks really good to me... though, one of the skeletons keeps forgetting to put back on his hat. :)

    Really nice work, the key poses are strong and there is a nice flow from seen to seen. Can't wait to see the finished piece.

    Glarggh, well I checked up on the renders and they still managed to mess up. And by they, I mean me.

    I dont know if I'll do much more animation on this, I'll just get it rendered out, maybe fix that last shot, then work on a new project.

    Takin ol' Iron Man from the sketch thread and trying to work him up.

    And taking out the colour so I can work on the values a little better, and recolour him so I can use it in a portfolio with a little less shame.

    I love that iron man to bits, but the mouth hole looks off to me - like it should be further in perspective due to the slant of the head.

    Otherwise, man, that's a seriously moody drawing you got going. What are your brushes you're using?

    Just a few variants of a pretty generic splatty brush, some with pressure sensitivity, others with a dual brush texture. As for the eyes, I was going for a slightly different look, having huge gaping holes in the face.

    edit: dammit, now I'm obsessing over the mouth.

    Man, I need to sit down and work on something like that...I usually get really impatient, and leave my work as a sketch. I have an Iron Man sketch around here somewhere...

    My art teacher used to give us 10 minute speed sketching sessions.

    At the end, he'd look at all our sketches and go "I lied, you've got two hours, fifty minutes to finish your sketches."

    And we'd fall for it every time.

    That's pretty fucking badassed man. It sucks you didn't do it back for the Iron Man contest at ole' Project Rooftop. This does however make me want to see the rest of the marvel universe designed in a way that is cohesive with this.

    linework2.jpg

    I'm dying here. This is for CG Society's Steampunk challenge and I just finished off the majority of the linework last night. The remaining bits, the background, the door detail and the chains will be replaced by cg elements since they're annoyingly fiddly. I've still got to colour up the whole damn thing. (my entry page if anyone's interested in the whole sordid process)

    The time remaining on the challenge? 24 hours.

    Doot. Deet. Doot. Deet.

    Great? It reveals the workings of a fraud!

    Timeline:
    2 months ago : a lot of concept art
    7-5 weeks : lots of research and preliminary modelling
    4 weeks - 1 week ago : Sweet fuck all, stuffing face with turkey, massive shopping holiday overseas, etc.
    Last week : Panic, abandoning 3d, do practically everything in pencils and photoshop, ton of research material goes out the window, may not finish.

    And this afternoon they announced a 7 day extension due to technical issues on the site. Hurrah!

    Holy bejezus. I agree with NotACrook. Your progress on this is unbelievable.

    If I had any suggestions at all, I would say that the hanging andriods could use some of that gold lining (much darker, to keep them out of focus and not too much either) but so there is a better balance of color in the picture.
