Robot Factory Track


This is the track for the animation. Soon I will build the robot arms. This project is going by smoother than I thought it would. I hope to get to the animation aspect very soon.

Robot Factory Walls

I have started on my second animation studio animation. It is going to be an animation of an endless robot factory that builds itself. I have just completed the walls and now I will start on the robotarms and track. I should have more to show by next week.

Midterm Assignment

video

I just completed my 10 second midterm assignment for animation studio. In all it was six weeks to go from concept to fully textured and lit animation. I also might do some post effects with it (I wanted to do heat waves for the background) but that won't be done for a while longer. Enjoy.

Z brush Monstrosity

This is my first manipulation in z-brush with my own character. Work flow: start with z-spheres/z-sketch, export to Maya for clean up and uv's, then brought back in z brush for sculpting. I will most likely redo this character by starting in Maya then going to z-brush. Z-spheres increased my poly count way too much making more subdivisions impossible.

Animation Studio Texturing

I have my scene almost fully textured (shoes and background need some more work), and my characters are rigged. The complete animation with sound is due in less than 2 weeks, so I will have the full animation posted by then. Everything is now coming together and I am excited to see how things turn out.

Animation Studio Biped

This is the biped character that I am going to use for my animation. The base model was created by fellow animator Lance Nelson. I should have him rigged and ready to animate in the next week.
