3D!! It's like I can touch you!!

So I decided I would have another go at 3D animation and I liked doing the 11 Second club before and so here I go again. So far I quite enjoyed doing the "blocking" stage, I drew poses I wanted on paper and replicated that on the modesl and it was almost just like 2D animation and then it got to moving onto the curves ... and I closed down the program. The curves took ages to start and wouldn't work at all like I hoped but after lots of guessing it started coming together and then I did some blocking of the lip sync which was pretty cool. I'm not going for any extravagent, just focusing on poses ... oh and I found the IK/FK stuff really annoying.

Ill post another update when I've done more.

Simon Allen Pixar Masterclass

Went to the Simon Allen Animation Masterclass today ... hes an animator from Pixar and originally from Perth, he gave us a taste of his animation knowledge in the space of two days. I found it quite inspiring and it will hopefully give me some motivation to get some projects going and practice my 3D animation =).

I'll just post the doodles I did =).

Another Life Drawing paint.

I wanted to try and do a more detailed one, it was looking good but then I just kept fixing things and I got a bit fed up with this one. I decided to stop here so it's a bit unfinished.

Ewok

My friend Heather makes great teddy bears so I thought maybe she could make me an Ewok hehe, so I had a go at drawing one for fun and ended up trying to colour it in, didn't really succeed in that part.

Life Drawing and Paint

I was pretty happy with some of the drawings from this life drawing session and painted this one because everyone seems to be painting these days =P. Also Marcus was talking about using colours from light sources so this is a play with that.



Here's my two favourite pencil ones.





I can't seem to stop listening to this "all i know" song as well by these guys =/ Eagle and the Worm.

New Toy!

I've been in a bit of a imagination rut for about a year now. Trying to get in the habit of posting more and doing more artwork =D, so heres a start ...

I just got me a new Intuos 4 Wacom and its awesome, so I decided to test it out properly and made this ..



Also trying to make a new film this year, while I have a good job, but will have to look for work after my contract ends =( hopefully I can find some more work in the feild but I don't feel very optimistic about it. Going to try and help a friend with some Special Effects work too, maybe that might lead somewhere also.
