UV maps of model (WIP)

Soooo...after I unwrap my model I have something that looks like this on my UV map.  A UV map is essentially showing me the placement of my textures.  To unwrap a 3D object is to pretty much flatten it so I can generate some textures in photoshop.  The first map shows all my head elements...the head and the hat.  The second map shows all of my body pieces.  Looks like a confusing jogsaw puzzle huh?  That's what it pretty much is though!  A confusing jigsaw puzzle.  Now that my model is unwrapped, I can start generating the textures, most likely at school.  Am planning to use a combo of Flash and Photoshop.  Fingers crossed that it will all work!

Ps....I really, really need to practice drawing hands.  It's the bit am not happy with in my model....

Some journal entries!

Hi, hi! 

How are things going?  Thought I would touch base.  My first week and a bit at work has been quite full on.  Lots of work to do for now.....will see how that goes.  Rob and I went to Sushi Jiro at the QV last weekend for some delicious sushi train.  We love sushi train.  I especially wanted to draw the scampi nigiri and the spicy salmon nigiri.

I also drew my fatty boombah kitty, Hanzo.  He is on a diet...but it's going to take time to lose weight, so he's still fat.  I need to lose weight too.  I really need to lessen my sugar and certainly exercise more. 

Working on some test animations tomorrow.  Should be good fun!

IF: Burning


This is my illustration for Illustration Friday and the theme is Burning.  I wanted to do something simple with bold colours and I went for "burning passion" and why not?  I think it's the type of burning most people wont mind at all.  This was illustrated in Flash.

I bought two awesome fashion books today: Dreaming of Chanel and Dreaming of Dior.  I would definitely recommend them!

IF: Mail

"Peggy was so surprised when she discovered that........"

This is my submission for Illustration Friday: Mail.  Thought I would leave it open ended for everyone else to fill in the blanks.

I haven't been able to submit for two weeks because of freelance work and it feels so nice to have something up for this week.  I am still on fashion illustration mode and enjoying it a lot.  Done in Flash and tweaked in Photoshop.
