Are you guys getting tired of my dolled up renders? I kind of am. With not so much as two months still left for thesis I am working on getting shaders and textures done so I can render the front animation portions while still being able to move forward with the animations. Since I am focusing on the environment for the time being I still won't show any animations yet- but I thank you guys who did get to see what I have in the labs and whom all gave kind feedback and constructive input! I am pretty much done with the animation of the civillian side of things (the whole intro being their everyday-sides first)- so it's up to the heroe-sides to finish the job now. Just Keith is left to be finished with blendshapes and weighting then the whole team is golden. And... an egg... one vicious alien-laser-spewing-egg is looming over me. After I complete the environment's textures I'll finish up the characters' textures too... gotta get to some test renders quick to debug if need be.
Anyhow- up there are three more further developed concept/renders to close in on just how exactly I want this intangible-amorphous thing to finally look. But- as we all know, the word "final" is nowhere near these images either, but it's certainly more than the starters I had when I first made this blog! Cheers to progress~ of any kind, big and small! Since these were just mock ups, I just used old renders of the characters and so those are not the latest of the models (sorry). Only the town is updated there.
Winter break was lovely- oh so lovely, but no more. To arms brothers~ let's go slay some monster theses! ("thesis" in plural form, I have just learned from dictionary.com, is "theses"... but I still like to blurt out thesisisiss or thesiIIiiii...)
-later all, lemme know what you think of the LOOK! W.I.P. look mind you~
