i am also added more green and blue to gain the atmosphere under the swamp and dramatic.


After the OGR by suggesting to create a harder cell , i have create more egg cell designs
i like this one with smooth curve lines and open the cell like a flower and i think it is more united with my concept and the character.

life drawing class

 Life drawing with paint, really enjoyed the time to be relaxed and focus on drawing.

i chose blue and yellow for the colour and mixing to create the grey and i tried not to start with sketching the draft but colouring with shapes of the light.
This one was challenging as the perspective of the model was quite flat and it should be shorter than the normal size.but i think i should also give the painting a base so it make more sense.

CG artist Toolkit - Balls animation (final)


Bouncing Ball
By learning from las time, i changed the ball distance for each frame so it can gain speed when the ball drop down and slower when it against the gravity.

it is also important of the material of the objects that they have different weight and motion.

3D blocking out of the secret lair (1)

From the photoshop class, Jordan suggested me to use Maya to block out the spaces so it could create more interesting composition quickly, This is a develop process from thumbnails 36 and 38  i was also applying the learning from Maya, creating the sphere for the atmosphere for my lair.









After that i was trying to film my digital set in different angles and render it with simple lighting and texture to see the effects.






thumbnails 39-49


Continuing with my the last colour thumbnails, i was trying to rearrange the composition and i like number 36 and 38 as it showed more organic and interesting. Also i was trying to make it more functional as well with the heat and light sources .
