Everything looks better in Slow-Mo!

Hi folks, how are you?

This week, what about some slow-motion?
With those few more cuts, the flying kick scene is over,  I am ready to move on to the next parts.
But first, let’s take a look!

 

I didn’t use the 3D model for Gaya this time because I wanted this special shot to be in 2D. I don’t really have any reason for this though.
After finishing it, I did realise that it would have been faster using 3D for almost the same render haha.

Ok, that’s it for today, thanks for watching and have a nice week!
See you next monday, same time, same place!!

EIEN Episode 1 (First 5 minutes)!!!

Hi folks, how are you?

Well if you ask me, I am pretty happy. Why?
Because, this sure took me time, but after one year, I finaly managed to reach the 5 minutes checkpoint I fixed to myself at the begining!

Oooow yeah baby!…sorry, got carried away haha.

Anyway, without further suspens, let’s sit down comfortably and enjoy the show!

Now you guys get a better idea of the whole thing right?

Of course, this is a work in progress and everything will be brushed up in time, so no worries ^^)

Well that’s it for today, thanks for watching, don’t hesitate to let me now what you think in the comments below and see you next week!!

Beginning of scene 3!

Hi folks, how are you?

Finaly, everything is ready to begin the third scene!
Gaya and her father has been skinned and are now ready to move.
So without anymore suspens let’s take a look at he first cut of the scene:

Don’t be mad at me because you couldn’t see the character’s face.
You know, that’s the thing about the new characters, there faces are never to be revealed before the second time you see them.
Don’t ask me who made this rule hahaha.
Hope you liked it anyway.
Thanks for watching, have a nice week and see you on next monday!

Brushup 0001

Hi folks, how are you? HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!!
This monday, I decided to come back on a previous scene and take it to the next step.
I will put the links to the 2 versions, so you can compare.
Let’s have a look:

Next step is to add the animations for the characters.
Thanks for watching, have a good week, an excellent year and see you on next monday!!

Hi folks, how are you?
Today I will share with you a short plan from the upcoming cut.
Let’s watch it together:

I tried a different way of creating the 3D background.
Instead of making it full 3D, I’ve put 2D images in a 3D space.
As a result, the rendering time is faster. Once the last fix are made, this can
become a good point for my workflow (since my computer is getting old).
I have put some efforts on making a good looking 2D smoke effect.
All that’s left is to put a lighting on it, here is a little test:

Well, that’s about it, thanks for watching and see you on next monday!

Everything done until now!

Hi folks, how are you?

Today, I made a clip with all the cuts created until now.
I added a short title screen and the third cut from the second scene.
Now you will have a good view over the whole begining.
Enough with the explanations, let’s take a look:

Still a lot of things to edit but that’s ok, I’ll do this after finishing the whole episode.
On to the next part!
Hope you liked it, thanks for watching!
You might have noticed that I did’n’t post anything last monday…well,
let’s just say that I had some troubles dealing with both anime and that little thing we call life hahaha.
Hopefuly, things are going to be back to normal once and for all.
Sooo, see you on next monday!

3D Eyes

Hi folks, how are you?

Today, I would like to show you an upgrade for the eyes of my characters.
Now that it’s done, I can get interesting results by changing the size of the pupils…
I still need to rig the eyebrows by the way…hahaha.
Ok, the video is faster than the blink of an eye (WOHOHO) so don’t hesitate to replay it.

Ok that’s all for today.
Stay tuned and thanks for watching!!

Scene 0002 Cut001 (2 versions)

Hi Folks, how are you?

Sorry for being late, you know what it is, waking up early, feeling like you have all the time in the world to get prepared and find out that you are already 20 minutes late…

Anyway , today what about taking a look at the first cut of the second scene!
I put two versions in the video.
The second one has a character animation whereas the first one is closer to e a rough shot.
Let’s see!

I’m planning on changing the camera to the one from the first shot for the final version.
That’s it for the day so, as always thanks for watching and see you next week!!

EIEN BB Scene001 (COMPLETE)

Hi folks, how are you?

Last week, I made a little mistake.The post’s title stated something like “all plans” didn’t it?
Actually the last cut was missing, but don’t worry today things are settled.
Today the puzzle’s pieces are getting together as the first scene has finally been complete.
Things have been updated.
Will you get the differences between this version and the previous ones.
Let’s figure it out now with this FULL MINUTE OF ANIMATION!!

First scene is over! YES! Of course I intend to polish the whole thing but because I need to go on,
I will be going on with the next scene starting next week. 期待しててね! (Kitai shite te ne! / Look forward to it!)

Oh! I almost forgot, if there is somebody you know who wants to make voices for characters, let me know. I need to start thinking about this in advance.

 
And as always, thanks for watching!!
