One of the trees I've finished up in Maya. My candy tree! Yah! Still quite a few more props and candy stuff to texture. My aim is to have the entire world set-up by Friday so I can see if I need to model up more props and stuff.... see how I go!
This is a prop I designed last year for Dukes of Broxstonia . I am pretty exhausted today. I am seriously considering sleeping now...mmmmm...to sleep or not to sleep...that is the question. I am also getting my taxes done tomorrow...scary stuff.
Howdy, one of the other concept art stuff I did last year. Been busy today and I find that I've been snacking waaaay too much the last few days. I know it's because am in need of a distraction while working and I keep getting hungry in front of the computer. Anyhoo, got to try and stop that. Much to do as always. I really wish I had more time on my hands.
Howdy! This is a quick concept art I did for a Christmas gig I did LAST year. A bit of fun but the project never went anywhere which was a shame. Anyhoo, did a lot of work today which was awesome! Still a bit more to go though....
Howdy, check it out! The bunny houses have some textures on them now! They actually look like the Flash concept art which is pretty cool! Took a while to get it right though but I am pretty pleased indeed! Working on the trees now and trying to figure out the best way to get it all done.....
Howdy. Here are the houses I modelled along with their mailboxes. It's going pretty well and am hopping to finish up the last of the 3D model builds today. I still haven't started on the biscuit flowers and bushes. Got to get cracking onto those after lunch! Always so much stuff to do!!!
Howdy, last of the trees modelled today. Pretty pleased. Did a lot of the props and even finished one of the bunny houses...so here's hoping that I finish modelling everything tomorrow because unrwapping everything for texturing will be a pain!
Here's some of the props I made in season 01 for Dukes of Broxstonia . Been working on two episodes doing props, backgrounds and characters all day today. Exhausting keeping up and am back at school tomorrow. I would like a breather...soon.
A cat design I made ages ago for a job. I really enjoyed designing this as it was a bit of a break from my normal style and I do like the sleek look of it. Busy day but taking it a little slower...have barely recovered from food poisoning after all....
Howdy, here's another tree and catching up on my daily blog posts. Food poisoning sucks. Absolutely sucks. I spent almost all of Friday night hurling and all of Saturday having other unpleasantness and sleeping for most of the day. Today I feel a lot better and can eat again. I need to sleep a lot though. My body seems to be craving it and am spending most of the time up feeling light headed. Not great. I really can't afford to get sick right now but not much can be done about it except to rest as much as I can. I have been pushing myself really hard lately.
Howdy, here is a screenshot of one of the models I've built so far. My doughnut tree! I ama slow modeller I must say. Takes me forever to get something looking pretty! Grrrrrr.... A lot more to model. Watch this blog....
Consider this a sketch in Maya. I've pretty much placed where the miuntains, trees, houses and roads are in my world. Then it will be me dropping the elements and adjusting things accordingly! Been a hard slog the last few days and it's not slowing down yet at all.
Howdy! This is the bunny character that lives in the candy land I'll be building in 3D. I don;t know if I will necessarily model this guy though as characters are not a part of my assessment for Environment Modelling. We shall see if I have any time. It would be more impressive if I had these guys there. I animated close to 10 hours straight today and I've been designing constantly for weeks. I am feeling a bit burnt out but I am so close to the end of this year! Well...sort of.
Howdy! Busy,busy day today and tomorrow will be even busier. I need to get a massive amount of work done. Anyhoo, here are some of the props I will be modelling in 3D for my Candy land! Too tired to write more for tonight....just hankering to not be studying and working at the same time anymore. I'm starting to feel the wear and tear of it all. Still, end of the year is nigh! I shall see it through!
Start of the Race End of the race Howdy! I don't normally post anything non-art related but am pretty pleased with my achievement this morning. I joined the Melbourne Marathon and decided, with a boost of confidence from my trainer, to do the 10 km run. I ran this morning and achieved it in 59 minutes and 28 seconds. Not bad for a girl that in January this year was huffing and puffing doing a couple of minutes on the treadmill. Making the time to train this year has been great. I feel that I have more energy and more confidence and belief in myself, regardless of what other people think and my work has not suffered at all. Not one bit actually and am busier than ever! I have my first sport medal. It's so cool. Anyway, I am now going to treat my amazing self to some well deserved brekky and enjoy the sun! Maybe take a nap.
Sooooo....I am going to be modelling these in 3D. Behold my bunny houses where the cute, carnivorous bunny characters are going to live. A bit of cutesy fun. Makes the houses look alive too. The modelling stages is going to be very interesting.....
Tree designs done in Flash Rough 3D Model of tree 02 Howdy! Well, I've been working on my concept art and look of my 3D major project today and these are a few drawings I came up with for the environment. Tree designs! I did quite a few other drawings too...am quite excited about this! Making the candyland....which is Rabbit Town!
Howdy! So we've started our final project in Maya and I've decided to do an environment design and I've opted to do a candy world of sorts. I am required to do a back story for my background and so I've come up with the idea that the town is all edible and that Sugar Bunnies live here and they entice children to stay with them for a little bit. The bunnies fatten up the children and then eat the children. A cautionary tale of greed. So it's Dr Seuss, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Hansel and Gretel kinda rolled into one. I did this one really quickly in Flash today at school while finding reference images and trying to figure out a colour scheme. I need to do more work still though...and perhaps try out other building designs and palettes.
Original Character Re-dress Howdy! So am currently working on Dukes of Broxstonia season 02, a series to be screened on the ABC. Anyhoo, these images are from the first season so am allowed to show them. One of my jobs in this series, aside from creating props and backgrounds, is to re-dress the characters. The image above shows the original design and the image below is my handiwork of putting the character in drag for one of the episodes. A lot of fun and it gives me experience with working with someone elses set-up. Been drawing and drawing aaaaalll day and it hasn't ended yet.
Come to Squishface Studio and check out our new window display for the Coaster Show ! 215 coaster made boys and girls! We would like to thank Micador for their sponsorship! Visit it us and you can see MORE coaster inside the studio!
Hello, hello! Here's a still image of one of the animation series I worked on, called Dogstar . This is a scene from one of the episode in Season 02. A bit busy as always! Will let everyone know once my plate is semi-empty!
Howdy! Another coaster I did a few days ago for the Squishface Coaster show ! Things are so hectic at the moment. Working around the clock, trying to fit in school work, training and social life..it is insane! doing my best to make time for everything and everyone. Difficult though I must say. That said, and as I've mentioned time and time again, I would rather be busy than bored. I get stressed when there is no work. Anyhoo, once I finish school I want to get onto finishing 3 comics, creating a 3D portfolio and making pieces for a solo exhibition. Essentially...means am going to be busy for a very long time.
Another old gig I did...gee, I don't even remember when I did it anymore. I must check. Anyway, another busy day again. I love freelancing, I really do. It comes at a pretty high price though but I find that the rewards are worth it.
