This is a huge post of the work in progress so I'll put it all under the cut, except the final Maya render.
Read more...Collapse )

Finished Maya model with normal, and adjusted color map, occlusion map, spec map.

I'm lazy about uploading stuff on here. I'm really thinking about putting this over on blogger just so I can upload images and movies there, but we'll see. I have animmations I can put up as well... but I'll have to put those on youtube. boo.

Here's some concept work I did for Delirium, which got cut back in February. I am now on Drifters as the cinematic lead and animator. For now I have Delirium stuff to post!

Yes, I know the bear is messed up :P

Here's a naked man I made in ZBrush. Well, base model in Maya, ZBrushed, retopologized in Maya, projected in Zbrush, UVed in Maya, textured in Photoshop and ZBrush. Woo. If anyone wants to see all the steps, I have it all screen capped for class.

He's not really finished to the point I want it due to time constraints, but this is what I had to turn in.

I've been doing a lot of stuff for FIEA, but so far this is the only thing I'd like to show art-wise. I've been doing too much rapid prototype art for our 2-week games, and let me tell you... planning, designing, creating, rigging, animating 4 different 3D characters in a week to work in a prototype game doesn't exactly turn into portfolio quality work. So yes, here is a naked man without his bits.

Naked man hereCollapse )

I kept forgetting to post this on here. I had more planned related to this, but lost the motivation.

from my dA description:

Mmm the color always ruins it.

I went to New York this past weekend and saw some plays and musicals; one being The Little Mermaid musical. While I loved the actual musical (well, the music/singing, and acting), the costumes and props were so freaking cheesy! Underwater, all the actors had those shoe-skate things on to have a gliding effect. However, to have that gliding effect, they all had to run a little then do the skating with one foot angled up like this and it always poked out of their skirts. It was a bit weird.

Which brings me to their legs. And tail. They had both. The tail was created with wires so it would sway when they moved their bottoms. It looked kinda cool when you couldn't see their legs (behind a plastic wave or rock), but that didn't happen very often XD

This was my entire weekend.

I apologize for the shitty "editing" with Windows Movie Maker... only program I have on here :/ My flash stuff was rendered as a .mov file so obviously they won't work in WMM and I refuse to put any of my animation online without my name on it somewhere. I don't trust people, even if it's a shitty animation test. Gah. I'll put them on here eventually.

For some reason the last bit of frames are missing on both movies... I don't know if that's YouTube or WMM (I'm betting WMM), but yeah... there is more to both movies, but not much.

I think I took too much liberty and Darlene will probably hate them... not to mention the flying or something. I don't care, I was only given a weekend to do this basically.

HW procrastination #1 fun with shaders

HW procrastination #2 (obvious feelings towards our broken iMacs)

First version of craptacular beat board, but I still like it. Sadly probably my best painting yet lol

Secret Project.
Just kidding, just more crap for altimitcorp.com. We had to design a level, and just for kicks I put myself (as Eowen lol) in there since I have no patience with backgrounds.... you can see from the scribble. Alex finished shading it for me while I was working on sounds for THE BATTLE SEQUENCE RAWR. hahaha. BUT HEY! I got a free .hack OST for doing this stuff! (and buttons, and posters, and a -very large- shirt!)

Completely unintended. I'll....do those weekly challenges and all the crap for altimitcorp eventually -_-; This happened when trying to make something for altimit corp lol.

I hope this shows up for people....like...you can see it. I think my monitor is brighter than most. ummmmmmm I really don't have patience to color/paint, and I know I'm bad at it... not sure why I keep trying.

Eh I seriously wouldn't be doing all this .hack related stuff if it wasn't for altimitcorp... I just want free stuff >_> Anyway this is a lucky animal I made up that could fit into the game. I used the same style and I think it fits pretty well. I was gonna model it, but I don't have time before SIGGRAPH (WHICH BTW HOLY CRAP FREAKING OUT).

Just felt like drawing "me" when I was making a card for myself at Altimit...for that card game I can't remember the name of in .hack//GU. Well that's how it started, then I figured I'd finish the portrait. I totally suck at costume design D: I've also realized that my drawings of people are always so boring.... and I've figured out why---- I draw the poses subconsciously from Life Drawing DDD: Goddamnit.

And because I'm short on time, I'll probably submit this for the Love Connection quest at altimit as well XD Poor Haseo. Don't think he'd like a cat girl.

The background was NOT done by me. It is official art of the Forest of Pain in .hack//GU.

This is just my earlier sketch of him colored....quickly and poorly lol I just wanted LJ to host it...

I really just wanted to post some vector backgrounds I made based on a background in GU~ I kept the colors as the original, but they can be changed easily if anyone wants. Enjoy.

Sorry..... totally my first impression of the Arena when I first went there in Vol. 1. I didn't do the background; I screenshot it from the game and filtered it! I give up on backgrounds D:

Don't get the reference? Play Final Fantasy X.

Another mission submission for altimitcorp.com's site. Not too detailed, but they wanted the major stuff, plus .hack stuff, plus what I'll be doing in 5 years. I don't really have a set style so apparently I switched styles on every pic? I thought it was kinda cute at least... It was fun doodling.

Ok, so I've been having this major artist's block going on for like... a month and a half. I have to catch up to weekly challenge soon!

Which, btw, here's an old weekly challenge I never posted on here:

I actually kinda hate it. Because of the painting. This sketch was awesome until I ruined it. I'm going to take it easy on the painting crap from now on I think.

But yeah, today I finally went back to drawing. Once I warmed up a little, I got back into my groove. My thing now is drawing with pen in my sketchbook to see if I can stop being so depended on tools to correct my drawing errors (aka the eraser on paper, aka the move, resize, cut/paste options on the computer). Ahhh 'tis a hard thing for me, but I think I can do it. Plus I like the texture of the paper in the sketch once I scan it in.

Here's today's quicky sketches:

This is my dog Chase (aka The Golden Sled Chow). I drew him mostly, but this is the only one I liked (plus the rest he moved before I finished). This one could have gone on, but I had another sketch in the way :/ Hahah and I don't like the coloring, of course. I'm too impatient with it I guess.

Kristeva from my new obsession, Ergo Proxy. The only reason I drew her was because I was tired of drawing the dogs and she was easy to remember how to draw. Didn't bother to color.

Vincent from Ergo Proxy. He's cute! I had to fix an error in my drawing with the computer, but other than that, I didn't do too bad with the pen.

Eh...I threw together my images of my fake!Incredibles character. I still mean to do an expression sheet for her too... but yeah here it is.

I also uploaded all my animations from Artificial Characters to http://stage6.divx.com/user/kait1114/videos/ ....which apparently since the site is so new, no student animator has found it yet. I'm the only who has tagged a video with "walk cycle"! And since people aren't used to seeing student animation assignments on there, I can only assume that's why I have "thumbs down" ratings on all of them T_T The embedding feature doesn't seem to want to work on here at the moment for some reason so you'll have to go there. >_>
29 April 2007 @ 02:18 pm
None of these were chosen, but I still liked some of them. Just for the heck of it, I threw some color on two of the sketches:

Some of the originals (I hated the other pages lol)

I'm having so much trouble with my model for school still ; ; I think it's the bones I make or something... they're all oriented correctly from what I see... Anyway... this is a result from my breaks from Maya.
