We are ready to animate! Rudy and Me have set to the task of setting up the cameras for each scene. I finished The cameras for the caravan site last night and having some extra time I thought it would be fun to build a hedgehog. I've been doodling him at work over the last couple of weeks. The model was easy enough to build but creating the fur wasn't so easy, the result being lots of research and tests! but I got the knack in the end. Think I might stick him in the film. Maybe a good way to introduce the title sequence with this little guy running past the screen wiping the title on.
Oh and some more good news we've also booked our tickets to travel down to London in mid March. Our plan to force ourselves on the industries finest. fingers crossed we'll stick up the first test next week!!!
its finished! the box represents where a statue of the king is going and I've got the lighting to sort out bu the texturing/ positioning/ is done, we can now animate in the scene! wwnt with these types of trees because it saves over 3 minutes in render times and I personally prefer them!!!!
The guard, I'm not to happy with, I've decided to design a coat of arms that will go on the chests of the two guards, one will be a bull the other a ram. in a form of a shield. then the designs will be combined and added to the flags that will be flying in the court! but apart from that I think its ok. opinions?
The king I found hard to do. I found that the jester could be quite dirty and his clothes stained. The king and the guards should realistically have neat and tidy clothes. the hardest thing about texturing is that you can't really add shading because that will be the jobs of the lights!!! for someone like me who's very interested in painting and shading this is a hard habit to break. But I have, At least I think so. what does everyone else think!
Hey my fellow bloggers its been a while, I've been texturing like a monster over the last week and a bit! So there is about to be a major uploading of the work!!! the texures are more or less complete, and Rudy's done a fantastic job with the rigging which is also done, i'll get him to do a couple of tests and we'll put them up during the week. We start animating on monday! Tell me what you think.
