Work of this week or work since last post



I really don't know what made me write and post this blog post today.It is almost4 O' clock in the Morning!(I mean I didn't get up at 4 in the morning,I've been up until 4!)

Well what did I really do since the last post?

Ah!, went one tiny step ahead in Sopwith Pup- the WW1 Fighter Engine model

Gave Aelita a mouth, now I only have to make ears and hair for her head.I thought of not making eyebrows and adding them from the texture

And did lots of colour tinting in Photoshop! That is really a great technique to be used on black and white photos.Unfortunately I can't post any edited photos here.Because all the photos I used to practice on are googled ones and I am still awaiting permission from the owners.Hope I'll get it soon,so I can post them in my flickr photo stream and here too.
By the way, I think there should be a new law of the ownership of images.Something like "since I googled and found that image I should have the right to use it!".

Did some PS editing,on a logo for a friend.And building a sword which I keep getting problems in texturing.

Found a good e-book on lighting and still on the page one!
Haven't touched one bit on character rigging!!

Finally started to figure out Unwrap UV W Modifier!Look what it did to my cat!!
And made a character model.

I think there are some problems with the topography of his face.Some vertices are misplaced or it needs more vertices.


Made castle walls for a castle for 3Dvia.com challenge. Didn't have much time to finish it after I wasted(I'm not sure I wasted or not) much time on the still for webshots CC

I'm going to finish the castle as soon as I get time.

And learned about matte shadows. I'm not going to post the render I tested matte shadows on,because it doesn't look right!Have to work on it more.

Now it is 4.20 am and my mom is going to kill me if I don't go to sleep

Happisis thanks for following me! you are my first follower
And I'm glad to get to know another girl who likes 3D works!!

Good Morning to you all and good night to me!
Cheers!

MEET MELINE




I wanted to write this blog post a while back but the short film was out on the net only last 1st of April.

Meet Meline is a animated short film made by Virginie Goyons and Sebastien Laban.

Before I say anything about the film better watch the trailer and making of.

click HERE

You watched the film too, right?
You didn't?
Then you are either,
1) Hey mister, you didn't say about it k? type or
2) Oh was there a link to the film? type or
3) Following orders is everything! type or
4)Hey I'm lazy today type
person
or
5) You just don't understand how to appreciate good work!

When I first saw the making of what I did was dig in everywhere on the net and start to read every article and every video on the film. Plus see who on earth are these guys who are making it.And guess what I've learned a lot from these guys!

Ah if you are interested in 3D Animation or making a short film you definitely should see
Official site of Meet Meline - www.meetmeline.com
and

Oh talking about the short film, I think you should decide whether it is good or bad.
For me I've only one word to describe it.
It is simply

B e a u t i f u l !!

Please be kind enough to leave a comment at anywhere you view the film!

Cheers!

Well I'm feeling bored today!

Like the title says I'm feeling bored so thought of writing a blog note.This one is going to be a bit long since I'm going to update as much as I can.
I did bit from everything past week.Started rigging,started modeling a new character face,submitted some entries for webshots CC,ah kept on with the WW1 fighter engine,started reading "The Hobbit or There and Back Again" by J.R.R. Tolkien, and whatever else I started but can't remember.

So thought of uploading some pics instead of writing my journal here again!

Below is some pictures from the character face.And I included the blue print (not really!) I'm using incase you can't recognize who she is.


OK! If you can't recognize her even now,
She is Aelita from the French Cartoon Series "Code Lyoko"

Well I've no screenshots or renders from character rigging.I've only just started it!

Ah the Webshots.You know Webshots right?
OK If you don't know that either it is a photo sharing community
www.webshots.com That is the homepage.
Well I submitted 3 entries for the creative challenge this time and got the 4th place.OK thats not big deal since it is a JFF (Just For Fun) competition,but it is the first time I got anykind of place in an image competition.
This is the one which got 4th place

If you have anything to say about it or ask(you know like,why isn't there an orange colour egg in the picture? or why are there only 6 eggs? or anything) just leave your comment or question here or at my Flicker account.
And if you want to download the big picture,you can get it from here

Now about the fighter,inserted a spark plug to the engine
this is the photo I uploaded at Flicker

I guess you don't need link to Hobbit but since it is so easy to post a link

And nearly forgot to say, I made a football too.From a tutorial.

Guess I'd better get some sleep
YAWN! It is 12.43 am!
