Day 14 Persistence and Endurance

Today it was a huge struggle, I found myself in some dilemma and keeping my threshold high can at times, be a trigger for me to actually feel annoyed and at times upset.

Some things that I should keep in mind to move forward, is that all things that are new can be a huge struggle at first, and Rome was not built in a day, but through small steps I can achieve big heights.

To this I will keep you with a small thought for today. I came from nothing and wherever I’m going I don’t know, the challenge that I have in front of me is something that I have to conquer to move forward for my dream.

Off to challenge myself one more time.

Persistence and endurance will make you omnipotent. Casey Neistat

Day 13 just keep swimming

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.

 

what’s next?

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 :))

Day 12 of the journey

Hopefully the internet connection won’t fail me this time.

Today I have been working and developing a sequence of test in relation to the development of my character Brice. Trying to keep a clean topology and a well formed structure to the anatomy is somewhat hard, but with some patience and calmness I’m getting there.

Somehow the topology got confused when I combined the two meshes and I could not properly manage it. To this I had to find a way to reface and patch the parts that were not working properly.

What’s next?

I will define and develop my topology and connect all the parts together, and hopefully I will then start developing a proper UV unwrap to start developing my project.

Day 7 ‘Fearlessness of being a child’

‘It’s not the having, it’s the getting.’

Elizabeth Taylor

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.
