Reflective statement

This term has been a real up-hill battle, with the work ramping up in difficulty, personal issues deciding to rear it's ugly head and even trips to the hospital delaying everything. I had to work days without sleep to get everything at a very basic level of competence.
Still, having modelled the characters including the mouse i do think on the 3D front that i have more than adequately delivered, as for the 2D however... Well Out of the 3 characters i designed only one had a full digital make-over, the other 2 were left with sketches and rough digital images.
If i could have done anything differently then i would have dedicated a little more time to my tablet so that i could create fully coloured and shaded orthographs for said characters.

@Phil 3D Maya environment, layout and Mouse model

Looking for opinions on what i've done so far and if it's either good enough for pre-vis or too far in the opposite direction.

Maya lesson 13/02/2017

Soundscape Homework

Location: Chatham Train Station.


A constant background noise of cars.

The screech of the metal wheels on the tracks.

The horn of a train.

The hum of the trains motors.

The sound of doors opening and closing.

The beeping of the trains door mechanism.

The sounds of peoples feet as they run.

The muttering of the people waiting.

The yelling of the train conductors.

Phone Ringtones going off.

The clicking of people typing.

The automated announcer blaring through the speakers.

The echo of distant trains in the tunnel.

The sound of disappointment as a train is once again delayed.

More 3d models: Table, Lamp, Controls

Some simple 3D models i threw together.

The surgery table, The lamp and the control computer, the control computer has very little details aside form the buttoms because of how the camera is placed you only see the buttons and the rim above the buttoms.

3D Model of Surgery machine

Took a stab at modelling the surgery machine that will be in the animation.

The black mass on the left is the outside of the surgery room. I still need to sort out some textures for it as i'm just using a simple blinn with the specular shading tweaked, i will also need to make a blood soaked version as well.

The yellow line is glass with chemicals inside, the same colour can be seen on the glass around the syringe, it's what the machine pumps into it's "Patients"

The arms rotate individually around the small cylinder on the bottom and the saw blade spins.

Character design class 01/01/2017

In class we were tasked with creating an environment and to treat said encironment like a character in itself.
I was given "Abandoned Theatre" and i instantly imagined a theatre falling apart, having been attacked at some point and over run with vegetation. To make that a reality i made it a theatre created by pirates on a secret island, the island was attacked by a militarian force and the pirates were driven out. When the conquering force tried to take over the island they found it full of booby traps and thus they gave up after losing many men.

Here are my sketches:
