Some more things I’m working on for class. The bottom one was an in class assignment where we needed to design a cross between a walrus and a rhino.
Even more concept busts for the Night Gaunt
for reference, here’s the character description:
"Shocking and uncouth black beings with smooth, oily, whale-like surfaces, unpleasant horns that curved inward toward each other, bat-wings whose beating made no sound, ugly prehensile paws, and barbed tails that lashed needlessly and disquietingly. And worst of all, they never spoke or laughed, and never smiled because they had no faces at all to smile with, but only a suggestive blankness where a face ought to be. All they ever did was clutch and fly and tickle; that was the way of night-gaunts."
Long time no post! The school year has started up again, and I’m taking a lot of interesting classes this semester.
Finally learning how to use Zbrush! We’re sculpting H.P. Lovecraft characters, so this is the start of my take on the Night gaunt.
Here’s a final demo reel that I made that complied what I thought was the best work that I did last semester
2nd demo reel! The music matched up really nicely with this one!
Had to compile all my work into a demo reel for class. I actually had to make two for two different classes, so I might make a third with all the best stuff in there.
Hopefully will be done with this scene soon! I need to do a test upload, because the lab computers are really bright and don’t give an accurate feel for the lights.
I split up the scene into the objects and all the lights shining on each object and ended up with 50 some layers. It was tedious, but now I have a lot of control over the final scene in post instead of tweaking it in the actual scene file
Almost done with this one too! This sure went a lot fast then I thought it would.
This is a test to composite the piece of the image together. At first I just had a beauty pass, an AO pass, and a depth map. But I had to split up the flowers, because none of the file formats could support the flower material and the transparency of the image. Everytime I tried to export the image, the flowers also ended up transparent. This actually happened with my hallway assignment too, but at least this time I found out what went wrong.
I also realize that my school computers are a lot brighter then most monitors, so I need to check out how they look on other monitors.
Starting to wrap up this room. I’ve been tweaking the lighting a lot, but then figured that I can do that in post. I’ll probably split it scene into various passes; the flowers in the back are really bothering me.
