Next test - gunman

08 February 2018

I am keeping testing parallax method for simple animation. The most tricky are characters. In this test I've used many techniques 2d/3d, photos and painting... Effect is done in Maya but you can achieve similar result in many other apps. Next time I'll try to be in 3d space early to prepare shapes before final illustartion, because fitting geometry into existing picture is pretty tricky. Cheers!

Dancer - parallax figure experiment

06 February 2018

This time I've tried to make a figure in parallax style. 3d effect is done in Maya and planes with textures are sculpted to suport the shape. It's not easy to sculpt into existing painting, but it's somehow possible. Maya sculpt tool is pretty helpfull system.Cheers!

Transfer into 3d
Here is the little timelapse from working on the Mermaid. You can see how I am trying different colors, textures and details. I am also focusing on lighting, atmosphere, water "dust" particles, and skin  translucence. Everything has to give deeply dark, underwater feeling.

Chosen sketch
I've chosen the sketch for the mermaid character. It's gonna be this type of creature. The sketch is more schematic and simple, just depicting the feel of the figure and silhouette. But it's enough for me to start detailed 3d version.

Workflow test
In this update I am proofing the 2d/3d workflow for myself. I love experimentation, but it demands a lot of testing without guaranteed success. So I've decided to make small bust from the sketch before to explore my ideas. I am usign mostly Maya and it's sculpting tools + Photoshop. It supposed to be a sculpt, with clay look, but finally I added subtle tint to enhance the gill and special eye to add more character to the creature. Result is not bad, for design purposes process was faster than I expected.
I hope I'll do some tutorial for the technique itself later. Whole thing is rendered in Redshift.

Pose sketching
Here you can see how I am utilizing some stuff from exploration before and trying to capture the creature with simple gesture sketches. I am watching references of girls, mostly under water, to get idea about some nice figure pose. And in the same time I am projecting all the water body elements into their figures. Many of them won't be selected and I delete them. But they are not useless, the bad sketches can help me to distinguish the good ones.
