ALTER EGO project VI

HERE WE GO

I am proud and… not, at the same time…

giphy (18)

This was my first 3D, ever

I really didn’t know that rendering takes soooooo long… I mean yeah, people tell you this but I gues you don’t really feel it until it happens to you…

giphy (16)

I am really unhappy that I didn’t make it in time. And it’s not that I started working on it two or more weeks after I should have. I was working on it from the beginning… I started building things right after our Dr Seuss lamp lecture and I was working on it all the time…. I think, maybe, I just wanted too much, or at least too much for my first 3D project… and I expected too much from my laptop.

I really hope that my next 3D will be GLORIOUS!

Now about the video

I hate the camera, it is so bad, so robotic… (but I think the moment with jumping of the bed is good) I’ll be sure to find a way of doing something to it so it actually looks alive next time. Also, I need to figure out creating a path for the camera.

Shiny things! – I love my shiny things! Especially the bath tub ❤ I am also pretty happy with the colourful vase in the living room, I think it looks really… ‘glassy’ .

I think the texture I have used on the sofa is great, I added a little bump to it and it looks really realistic. The same with the wall tiles in the bathroom.

Shiny on the stairs… I think the stairs are too shiny… I wanted them to be highly glossy black but it came out looking like a mirror, which could make the audience confused as the ceiling is reflecting in it and it looks weird.

I am happy with the kitchen cupboards, I like the little sparkles in the texture and it’s reflectivity. But I wish that we could see the reflection of the actual character in them.

Bedroom furniture – I love it. It was actually inspired by the first and only piece of furniture I got when I came to England (actually it was bought for me as a present)

My cute one draw thing called Antonina

FxCam_1378231691029

The view behind the window – I like it, I just dont know why it decided to get bright, like it’s day time for a few seconds and then goes back to normal… I really don’t know….

Basement

I like how the aquarium looks – it looks realistic. When I look at it, it makes me think that the person who lives there should buy those fish that suck to the side of aquariums and clean them…

I am also proud of the the table that the aquarium stands on, it actually looks like it’s made of real wood!

The chairs – the chairs look cosy enough to me, and I somehow managed to apply the texture to it properly (dunno how haha)

Pillows are cool, just like pillows – I didn’t use the nCloth on them, I just manually made them, but I did use nCloth for the blanket one on the bed in the bedroom.

Some pillows decided to start floating above the ground, this is not how I designed it, don’t know why it is happening….

giphy (10)

WHY FIRE IS VISIBLE IN THE FIRST PART OF THE BASEMENT VIDEO BUT IT VANISHED IN THE SECOND PART?? Maybe someone knows… but it’s not me. I dont know. I tried to fix it but it just wouldn’t work. I even tried to make a new one but that didn’t work either. I don’t understand this. It just happened.

giphy (22)

The projection. After I had to cut the scene into 4 pieces, I totally forgot to change the settings on the projection, that’s why there is a really wobbly transition on the video… If the project was in one piece, the moment when the camera gets to the projection, there would be the correct piece of the film on it, but because I had forgotten about it, the part that was shown was near the beginning of the film so I had to change it afterwards….

Timing – I don’t think that 1 minute was enough time to show what I wanted to show in this house. What was really important in the basement was the books and films all over the place along with the cat toys and cat bowls. I also wanted to have cats lying all over the room. I wanted the basement to be very different, very cat friendly. Warm and cosy and furry, with an interesting aquarium full of fish and good stories to watch on the projector or to read. Unfortunately, I didnt have enough time to show this.

The music I have chosen is a cover I recorded long time ago (and the video on the projector is the video I made for the cover) and it just seemed right to use. The video has a cat in it, so it obviously fits in with the room and the song itself seemed right.

giphy (20)

Blinking… I had to use blinking because of the horrible camera… I thought that I’d onl have to use it only for the transition between rooms but then I found out that the camera is just evil and I had to patch it up somehow…

giphy (21)

Rendering.

I set every scene on different PCs to render overnight. When I came back, I found that both parts of the basement had rendered black, the ground floor finished and was okay and that the 1st floor managed to go through 40%…

I fixed the problem with the basement (for some reason the lights were off…) and it finished rendering before the univerity was about to close.

The 1st floor… I really don’t understand what was sooo heavy in this floor that it took so much time to render… I somehow managed to finish it before the university closed for Easter break but I was rendering it on all of the computers in 108 at the same time, running around and changing frames from PC to PC and selecting which PC I want to start rendering at which time…

IT WAS A NIGHTMARE BUT I MADE IT

giphy (11)

Many thanks to Maria for helping me to log in to all the PCs and turn the rendering on because I wouldn’t make it otherwise… ❤

Even though I didn’t achieve exactly what I wanted, I think that the lair I made redeems the goal.

ORIGINS project VII

Researching four animators placed in the brief as a reference.

 

Will Eisner (6th March 1917 – 3rd January 2005) American cartoonist who popularized the term ‘graphic novel’.
His most popular work is the comic series ‘The Spirit’.

2-1

**********************

other examples of his work

 

***********************************************************************

 

Preston_Blair_large

Preston Blair (24th October 1908 – 19th April 1995) American character animator. Started his work with Universal Studio then worked for Disney after that in MGM and in the end he worked for Hanna-Barbera.
Mostly known for his work at Walt Disney Productions, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
He’s first book ‘Advanced Animation’ was published in 1948 and is still one of the most important and useful books about animation.

I actually had a chance to look at the newer version of this book. I find it very useful. It’s full of many tips and tricks that help to make animation more believable and alive. It also helps understand many matters of which you may even never think and they are really important(e.g like the way things move in particular situations)

**********************

other examples of his work

***********************************************************************

Jay Ward ( 20th September 1920 – 12th October 1989) American animator and producer.
Mainly known for creation of Rocky and Bullwinkle. Owner of Jay Ward Productions. He designed Mr. Peabody & Sherman which was made in to the film by DreamWorks in 2014

 

**********************

other examples of his work

 

***********************************************************************

Bob Kane (24th October 1959 – 3rd November 1998) American comic book artist. Co-creator of the DC Comics Superhero Batman.
Widely known for creation of Batman.

**********************

other examples of his work

 

***********************************************************************

I think that Will Eisner and Bob Kane don’t fit into my vision of the character. The style and the subject of their work is very similar, and it is not exactly what I am comfortable with. The style of Jay Ward is closer to what I am looking for but it’s still not it because his characters are far away from being realistic.The closest to what I want to make is Preston Blair, I really like his designs for the Flintstones. I also really like the way he draw women they are very neat, curvy and a little bit cheeky .

ORIGINS project VII

brief

This project is connected with ALTER EGO project VI (the lair was created for characters designed in this project).

What this project has to offer is especially valuable. It will help me better understand the nature of the golden age animators, I will have time to practise drawing and actual design things in particular style. This is very important to me because I realise that being able to create in variable styles is a very useful skill in the animation industry. Also it would be great to have a complete character design in my portfolio.

Lets get to work

ALTER EGO project VI

I really thought that everything is going to be fine this time but no….

 

giphy (19)

The house is too big & has too many things, nothing is working, I can’t rig the camera…

IT TOOK ME 3 HOURS TO DELETE 3 CARPETS…. After that, it still wasn’t good so I decided to cut the house into 3 separate scenes, 1st floor, ground floor and basement. In the end, I also split the basement because it has the aquarium (wtih many, many plants) and a fire place with fire and the video projection on the wall… So I thought it would help.

200w

Even after spliting the house into 4 pieces, rigging the camera was a nigthmare…. I don’t even know how it actually looks because I can’t play it… I expect the part when the camera goes down the stairs to be a total disaster. I tried to create a path for the camera but it didn’t work, I couldn’t figure out why and there was no time to play with it….

INCEPTION = the video projection on the wall

That was also a nightmare, after spending hours on actually being able to stick it in Maya, we couldn’t figure out WHY IT ISN’T VISIBLE IN RENDER VIEW.

Now we know. Importing a video into the scene is only visible in the scene, not when you render it, so basically it’s there just to help you animate stuff.

Alright then – Andy said that I can make an animated texture. It took me a while to find out why my image sequance didn’t work. MAYA REQUIRES A SPECIAL WAY OF NAMING FILES (Maya – special care patient!) It finally worked when exported files were named like this: NAME.XXXX.extension (X = a number).

ALTER EGO project VI

Maya, Maya, Maya… what a great program you are ! But honestly, sometimes you make me wanna poke my eyes out….

giphy (17)

I really feel like I have watched every existing tutorial on the whole internet…. and I know things! I know how to make stuff! But I have no idea why sometimes nothing works, even when you follow a damn tutorial, step by step, like six times!!

giphy (12)

Anyway…

BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER – don’t make separate scenes for everything you want in your film if you plan on importing it to the main scene IF YOU ARE USING A STUDENT VERSION OF MAYA! It will make you click ACCEPT for every single imported scene when you try to open it or save it… also, things would move around or change size or both OR EVEN DISAPPEAR after saving the main scene, closing it and reopening again…

Another thing

I brought my laptop, thinking of working with Maya and guess what! MENTAL RAY DOESN’T WORK ON IT ‘CAUSE… SOME ANNOYING ERROR!..

giphy (3)

***********

In the end, I really like working in Maya. I found, surprisingly, that it’s almost like playing The Sims… you know, when you build houses and decorate them. I always thought that it would be cool if you could create your own stuff in it and voila, Maya lets you!

In the beginning, it seemed terribly difficult but after a few of Andy’s lectures and a few more tutorials it was like walk in the park.

giphy (14)

Here are some notes I made on the lectures (I had more but I remembered everything from them and now I have no idea what happened to them…)

Improving working with Maya.

When I first started building stuff, I would made it in a weird, complicated way (THAT WASN’T EVEN LOGICAL) and then I sort of cracked and everything seemed so obvious and easy. Even though I know that I have gotten better, I do realise that most of the things I built for this project are still too complicated and inefficient but I will get there in the end. After all, the aquarium I built had 3 times as many plants in it than it has at the moment but it just killed the computer so I had to delete it, also I WANT TO HAVE FLUFFY HAIRY CARPETS AND MANY SHINY AND REFLECTIVE SURFACES. I know that in order to get what I want, I need to find a better way to build stuff.

giphy

**************

Now it’s time to show what my work looks like

********

zxvsBez tytułua

Unfortunately, most of the textures are not visible because of the mental ray, which doesn’t work on my laptop… (so I couldn’t really see how most of the things would look).

I also have more objects ready but I dont want to show everything yet.

*****

I also had trouble with creating fire in my main scene. First, I created it in a separate layer just to see if it would work. IT WAS FINE. Then, I made it again in my main scene and, of course, nothing happened… There was no fire at all… After re-doing it many times, it finally worked but I hadn’t done anything differently so I really dont understand the problem.

Other than this, everything is going well I think I should make it in time.

ALTER EGO project VI

After spending the first few days watching what seemed like HUNDREDS of tutorials on maya, I can tell that the software seems easy.

 

But what isn’t easy is, when you are trying to build something yourself, in the beginning you will always make it in a ridiculously complicated way, so after a bit you have to come back and redo it…(building aquarium with 5 different squares…) I guess it’s part of learning process.

Baby steps

Everything is going well, I have the house built and started making furniture. It is pretty fun.

I have the storyboard here–> 3D STORYBOARD

I didn’t see the point in drawing the storyboard this time because its just the environement and the only thing moving is the camera.

I made a quick layout of the furniture and everything in the house but the version I actually built is different. I decided to make the stairs spiral and move them to the side of the house also I decided against having the balcony, I think there isn’t enough time to show it all.

How I imagine a secret house for cats would look

I tried to hand draw it but it wasn’t very straight (I have astigmatism). I spent alot of time  making it just to have a few walls drawn and to find out that everything is collapsing…. then I decided to do it again on the PC

In the beginning I wanted to have this triangular window on one of the walls but now I think it looks weird, so I have also put in the circular ones and I think I will go just with them.

 

FIRST FLOOR (circular wall is the window going all the way from the roof to the floor in the living room, in the basement it’s just the wall with the projection on it)

I’m planning to go into black and white on the ground floor. White marble floor, black sofa, a coffee table, tv, shiny black stairs, white kitchen cupboards with dark tops. Definitely a black carpet on the floor and paintings/mirrors.

For the bedroom I want a black marble floor, dark wallpaper with a violet pattern, light wooden furniture, a big mirror & pictures on the walls.

I’d like to make a blue and white bathroom, nothing special, simple single-colour tiles, blue on the floor and white on the walls, ‘oldschool’ bathtub with shiny legs.

I will make a simple balcony with just one bench with a lot of plants

Room filled with pillows, one mattress in front of the wall with a projection on it, table with aquarium on it, book shelves, two cosy arm chairs – one of them next to fireplace, facing the projection wall, cat bowls with food and water, cat toys, books, DVD cases, carpet covering the whole floor in warm colours, floral (grandma-style) wallpapers (different patterns and shades on each wall).

Outside the windows view

I was thinking about making some bushes near the open basement window and just some grass on the floor in the garden or maybe even just green colour, because I want it to be evening, it would make more sense having the fireplace lit.

Outside the kitchen and bathroom window I wanted to create a street and a few lanterns.

I am also planning to build a porch so the light stripes created by the lanterns could shine through the space between the wood and slightly light the room.

I AM EXCITEEED!

ALTER EGO project VI

FIRST 3D PROJECT

FINALLY!

u

to be honest I have completely no knowledge about 3d. It’s just like black magic to me. I am sooo excited wow wow

I AM GOING TO CONQUER THIS PROGRAM

giphy (9)

Along with this brief, we also have another one going, project ORIGINS (see tags on the right for ORIGINS). Because this one is about creating a character and it’s back story, I have decided to make my life easier and connect those two projects.

In the project Alter ego I am going to make a lair for the character created for the brief Origins.

My idea, once again has something to do with cats… well I guess there is no way for me to hide that I love them a lot…

My characters name is Alisa and she is a human. Actually, no. She is a human sometimes, other times she is a cat, or cat-human. You could say ‘oh another cat woman thing…’ well yes and no. I was always so dissapointed with the creation of cat woman. Alisa pretends to be a human, she works in a big corporation doing something boring (I haven’t decided what, yet) and her house is very modern, cold & boring. She seems to be like her house. Both of them have a secret. In the hidden basement you can find one large room with grandma-like wallpaper: fluffy carpet, cosy chairs, mattress and hundreds of pillows. It has a large aquarium because all cats like to look at fish (some of them not only like to look) and a fireplace because all cats love to be warm. The room is also filled with cat toys, books & DVDs, there is a projection on one of the walls. But the most important is the fact that one of the little basement windows is always open so every cat in need could come by.

Alisa’s sidekick is an ordinary looking cat named Moo, but he’s not ordinary at all. He lives longer than any other cat, he is more like a human that has changed into a cat (think of Salem from Sabrina the teenage witch). I want to show how the house looks from his perspective.
