Over the last few days we have been extremely busy trying to bring all our work together, here are some rendered stills of a couple of the scenes.

Environment // Tower Test


The last clip was how I originally positioned it (with the components more logically nesting into each other) but it seemed to lack dynamism, so I went for a slightly more radical elevation.

Male Character // Rig



The rig is now finished for the male character, so I went ahead and posed him.

Environment // Cog test in Maya


I followed an online tutorial which Charlie found to make a cog quickly and easily. Our animation will have lots of different styles and sizes of cogs which I'm quite looking forward to making. I've made these as a quick test to see how they look.

Male Character // Model #2

I've added a few things to model and here is what it is currently looking like, It has surface shaders as a temporary texture for the moment.


Male Character // Model

Yesterday I started to model the male character, this is how he looks so far. Some tweaks might still be required.

Male Character // Orthographic 2.0


We are still having a bit of an issue as to how the arms should be shaped to work best with both the animation and the design, which resulted in the making of the following options. (We should normally be able to use influence objects to bend the limbs in some of the gaps area.)

Costume and Character // Concepts

A few skirt designs for the costume change. We were thinking using #2 as a base with some further accentuation of a cog-like design pattern.


Some body and head development from last week

Male Character // Thumbnails 83 - 88

Today we got together and discussed the design for the characters, this resulted in quite a few changes that I've started to sketch out, he still needs some work.

Male Character // Thumbnails 64 - 82

I created some variations of the hair and the key for the character. I like 70, 75 and 76 out of these thumbnails.



Environment // Concepts #2

Just as a reminder, we are planning on having the tint of the short change as the story progresses. At the beginning, the overall colour could be as follow: a cold blue ― a dull, military, toxic green or even just black and white values.

I took one of the thumbnails that I thought was strongest from the last page and sketched him out a few times.
