As you can see from my posts, I’ve been producing truckloads of work as the semester ends. Tried a different style for the last image, which has gotten mixed reviews. I don’t really know how to make a chinese landscape painting look colourful and blend into the rest of the shots. Much to learn, I still have. Let me know what you think in the comments!
Hans Bacher, the legendary production designer for Disney’s Mulan and other great movies came down to NTU to give a lecture on colour and composition. This was a fantastic refresher course in how to create effective images. We often get so bogged down with datelines that we forget to incorporate basic rules of colour and composition in our works. We students need reminders like this every so often. Not to mention the harsh but constructive critiques he gave for all those who dared to approach him for advice. Tough love man.
Like everything on this site, I allocated a ridiculously short amount of time to complete this. It’s still a work in progress. Only 20% completed, so that’s where the bulk of my December holidays is going to. Feel free to drop any critiques!
This was an animatic done for storyboarding class. Like the rest of my school assignments I did not have much time for this. Each frame was a quick 15-30 minute painting. Sort of a therapeutic retreat from maya and animation seminar. I miss digital painting.
Spent quite a bit of time on these 16 seconds. And it still isn’t as perfect as it could be. I guess i’ll tweak it again for my final showreel. But for now it’s submission. Voice clip from the US version of The Office, performed by Rainn Wilson.
Number 2 for 2 reasons. This was my second stop motion animation ever, and this was the second proper puppet I made, since the first one looked too much like a naked human version of Homer Simpson. Sound effects were once again produced by my vocals, but this time some processor fan interference got in the way of my recording, and as a result the sound sounds more shitty than it was originally.
Didn’t really like how the animation turned out, but I guess I’ll upload it just so everyone who is the least bit interested can log my process. Like my parents.
Did this as an exercise for stop motion class this semester. It was to practice animating a walk cycle against a strong wind. The reason why the dude fell was because the wire armature broke. Turned out to be right on cue though. Might develop this into a full length feature film in the future.
Yup, that’s my face there. All sound effects were produced from my mouth.
Yes I know I should have uploaded this onto my blog a long long time ago but guess what? I was lazy. Here it is, the non youtubed version. Something tells me I’ve got to delete the one on youtube.
Anyway for the uninitiated, this was the final assignment for my Intro to 3D production course at NTU’s School of Art, Design & Media. My first attempt at 3D animation and Maya. Let me know what you guys think in the shoutbox.
