Still working

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

I haven’t made any update posts for a while.

I have to hand my project in next Friday, so i have been busy working on getting something to hand in.

This won’t be the end of this particular project, as I will probably re-do it, and complete it better next year, using different software I want to learn.

My status is…

All primary and secondary models completed (sculpted, rigged, textured). Landscape completed for now (if I get extra time, I may touch it up, but it is sort of having the feeling I was after when I first envisioned my project).

I am now in the middle of putting scenes together to carry the story through. At present I have 8 scenes completed (though two need re-working if I have time), adding up to 490 frames (19.6s at 25fps).

Below is a quick flash render of the current project. As I said, still needs a few scenes to make the story and timing work.

You need to click on it to download and start it.

Yes, I’ll post something next weekend after I have handed in something. And then it will probably be next year before I return to the project, with a different software package.

Grumpy Garden Gnome

Friday, June 18th, 2010

Hi, haven’t updated the site for a while, thought I’d post a quick idea I had, just to have something new here…

A grumpy looking garden gnome wakes up as the sun rises, starts to smile, goes into the house through the cat door, struggles to get a piece of bread out of the bag, maybe bounces on the bag a couple of times to get it out. Toasts the bread, spreads butter & peanut butter on it, with a big smile is about to eat it, but then somebody comes in. He hides, they yell thanks to somebody out of scene, wandering off with the toast. The Gnome, still smiling comes out, finds his toast is gone, he reverts back to his original grumpy face as he marchs back to where he originally was and goes back to sleep.

Can include things like him trying to climb stairs, and onto the table, maybe trying to sneak past cat, etc.

May try to use the jug cord as a lasso buy end up hitting himself in the head with the plug for his efforts

Skateboard Dude

Monday, May 31st, 2010

Well I said I would post another (undeveloped) story ideas today, so…

Skate board dude.

Guy buys a skateboard and places it on ground, stands on it and smiles, waits, nothing happens, picks it up and moves it to a hill, puts it down, it rolls off.

Next he is walking up the hill with the skateboard, puts it down and stands on it.

Starts to roll down the hill, wind in his hair, smiles. Gets faster, bigger smile. Starts to really race, smiles a little less. Gets even stepper/faster, looks worried. Now going straight down, looks terrified, skateboard starts to floats past him, grabs it and is now falling, while holding onto the skateboard. Loses grip, finger by finger, skateboard floats away above him, looks down, sees building roof approaching, then bang he hits it. Latter second bang. Scroll to bottom of building, skateboard comes rolling out the door (maybe a sliding door) little latter dude walks out the door, looking bruised, picks up the skateboard, drops it in the trash bin, and walks off, maybe pausing to look in the window of another extreme sport store.
