More texturing

I'm done. For now. So basically I'm not done. Is one ever done? Anyways, look at what I'm turning in for the purposes of class.

Up next is texturing. Major props to Rick for helping me get started on these.

The radio isn't textured, if you were wondering. I'll be finishing that up soon, and then on to animating :)

Wiggly lines

I've been playing with Maya's toon line to get it to wiggle nicely. It has been a challenge, but I believe I am very close. Check it out

The set

Moving onto modeling the set now. I think it goes pretty well. Just wanted to show a sneak peek

Remus acting test

So I did an animation test with Remus to try out the rig and also to explore some limited animation in 3D. My hope is that the "dead" times shall be brought back to life once I add the toon line. Check it out

So I've been rigging. Have a look-see:

These are just the blendshapes for Nelson, courtesy of Natalia. I haven't skinned him yet so I'll show that later. Now here is Remus, who is skinned but lacks blendshapes (see what I did there?):

Prop and set designs

While I am rigging, Nate has been coming up with some designs for props and set items. Here are a few of his concepts:

I haven't updated in a while because I've been pretty busy rigging. I should be able to get some stuff up soon. In the meantime, run and be free

More playing with textures

've continued to experiment with the texturing and shading on the model. I believe I have come up with something closer to what I want. Still messing around with the toon line. The Maya toon line has many attributes that I have yet to explore.

Here is one without the toon line

Texture test

Just playing around with shading techniques, and toon lines. This is by no means finished. I do like where it is going though. I definitely need a higher res texture though. Also trying to see if I can get the lines to show up in more areas


Nelson Model

So I've been pretty quiet for a while. I've been enjoying my summer break, but it ha snot all been idle time! I've been working a bit, and I have finished the model for Nelson. Here he is:

3 Moods

Heyo, Nate again, checking in with some additional concept paintings for All In. We decided to come up with concepts expressing the moods 'Tension' and 'Retribution.' After some discussion we thought a good tactic would be to vary the color palette to express the changes in mood, but keep the continuity of location. Here is what we came up with:



The characters were added in with significant less texture and the addition of outlines, to separate. them from the environment. Here are the same pieces, sans characters:

Overall I'm very happy with the final product and I'm excited to translate this place into 3D! See you guys next school year! ~Nate

Nelson Concept 1

Oh snap, finally some Nelson stuff! I didn't do too many drawings of him, because I mostly kept him the same as before. I mainly played around with his face and his suit. But yeah, I already started his turnaround and I just finished Remus's. I'll be posting those once they are nice and clean. Anyways, here are some drawings, yay

Also a quick scale sketch, to see how they relate to each other.
