Guess who is back !!
So Glad to have him back on track with the rest of my coming projects. Bob is the kiddo that never lost hope, and in fact, he turned 1 this month. I’m so happy to have planned and geared some matter to his direction, to a possible dope video.
My storyboard is underway and I will soon be posting some storyboard ideas I had in mind to get this character back on track.
Oh I found this interesting ceramic artist the other day and thought to share it here:
The designs she is able to create the reused material is impressive and somewhat incredible. Although she did fail, haha she didn’t keep herself from doing what she really loved. This is a testimony that doing what you love is the only success you need.
I have been preparing a lot of material for the coming lectures and all of this is quite exciting! My students are doing an amazing job with their portfolio and I am very happy with their performance.
Hope you too are having an amazing sunny day as mine.
All the best micheliners.
These are some updates of my work. Although I am still working on developing the UVs for my project I have learned so many things and I striving to find better solutions into producing something effective and something that identifies me and my voice.

This week has been a pretty crazy week, but I have built some momentum that I don’t want to loose. I’m starting soon my fish model and hopefully get cracking quickly with modelling, re-topology and developing the proper UVs for my animation.
This is a video that I came across two days ago and it really made me think of how much hard work and truly believing in yourself can actually make you become. This is all that I have been talking about, but I strongly believe that good vibes and positive attitude build up can truly enhance and develop ones internal core to become a better practitioner in this industry.
Keep your head high. Stay authentic to yourself and don’t stop.
Learning from people and understanding that my journey is the same, and it takes time. Being constant and hard working will bare great fruits. I am better than I was yesterday.
Today the weather has failed us from any sun rays. Its been a long and exhausting day. I have worked on the topology and reworked myself again, as I realized that some parts were not working properly and could be problematic when I try to UV unwrap everything on a later stage, another development that I should work on is the 2D element that is part of this animation.
A deeper evaluation and construction of outcome should be undertaken for me to fully acknowledge which parts I should make emphasis on and somewhat develop my look dev for the eventual outcome.
I shall be discussing as well some animation elements that I might be embedding within my work. These are the following inspirations that I am inclined to develop and further enhance my work into.
Although i don’t have any dance involved within the development of my animation, the rhythmic pattern and energy and same element of fluidity is something that I would like to capture within my animation.
Dealing mainly with developing and formulating the first animation model, and working into achieving other assets this week. Together with this the development and getting on hold of music artist that will help me achieve the final outlook and development.
(more sun tomorrow please :))
Today is the third day of my production work, and its a long way to go.
I’ve been trying to keep this updated but its hard. Yet, I want to try to revive this platform and share more of my ideas and content. Sometimes I find it hard to get my head around to what I should develop all of this into, but somehow I will never succeed if I will postpone everyday for a better day. So to this I should try to maintain and equilibrium and become more fluid and fluent within the content that I post.
I’ve been still recording my days and somehow I want to share this with you guys. These images although they might seem quilted with some sort of tension, they have been the get away and instance of my constantly busy days, where I took a slide and a moment for myself. Me time. Absorbed by the work, and constant battle of developing creative things I find it hard to make a constant self persistence of myself. I will try.
Here is a sneak pick to the development of my thesis. The narrative as I explained before is about a guy nicknamed Brice, who takes himself into a journey in understanding his purpose and relevance within his quiet and voided world.
Initial design developments that I have undergone, through my post production development.
The concept art that I am eagerly developing. I hope this gives you an idea of what all of this is about and how I will develop and generate my content in.
I will be working on models in the coming week and as well I will kick off with my initial 2d animation development, hopefully keeping you updated more often. I will look forward for this, but for now salute!
‘It’s not the having, it’s the getting.’
For today’s agenda I shall talk about the aesthetic and narrative that I am developing so far. It’s a bit complicated but bare with me.
So as I said earlier before the narrative that I am exploring is that of an individual that is facing inner dilemma, and he escapes within the wonders of his inner childhood and dreams. It sounds complicated, and to some extent it is. Nonetheless, what I am trying to capture is an aesthetic that delineate and submerges well the scope and resonating factor of the medium in the context of the narrative.
This in all intent is possible, yet I am finding it hard to actually express it in solid 3d spaces. To this I have been considering shifting the essence of 3d aesthetic into something that is more 2d in a bear essence. This sounds awesome, but developing enough power to gain this is somewhat hard and I need a vibe of momentum that will ignite me to find something interesting within.
Looking through splendid work of Glenn Keane and his wonders, I was awestruck how such a 2d animator could evoke 3d elements even within the essence of flat planes.
I know that here there is something deep through which I should look closer. There is something deep, that if I analyse deeply I will find my way into expressing this confusion of thoughts that I have within my head.
‘What is this amazing new world I stepped into. ‘
A testimony that whatever you dream about can truly be accomplished with some perseverance, power and ambition!
That’s all folks!
Brief. But to the point today!
Off to continue
‘Art is like a border of flowers along the course of civilization.’
The narrative that I am currently exploring is emerged within the development of a character that is finding struggles within the inner self. The idea behind this narrative is about how this struggle will take this character into places and with some perseverance and obstacles a long the way he will define and transform into realizing the definition and permanence of being in this world.
A very brief synopsis but to some extent this character is still an unfinished development and I am still letting my thoughts breath within this brainstorming.
The visual attempt to this approach is one that is mostly taken within hybrid formation of different media and development. In this manner I would be allowing the definition and understanding of these chaotic thoughts to have their freedom and expressive freedom.
Perseverance will make this happen.
