Just before I went to bed the other night I felt a sudden urge to scribble the portrait of an alien. My friend said that he looked like the sort of character that has servants, so maybe hes a member of a aristocracy or something like that..
These envrioment peices were done for a Set design module, I hadnt heard of S.T.A.L.K.E.R before but it looked like a really interesting game to do some nice grimy industrial european/soviet type designs for.
Got some interesting modules this semester, the main one is modelling an interior and extrerior envrioment in maya 10 meter squared. This enviroment is then imported into the Crysis engine. I struggle with maya a bit so this is deffinitely a challenge for me.
anyone who works in VFX can smile when they watch this video...
Whilst despairing over four hours of maya work that i thought id lost (but then found) i decided to take a break and do soemthing in my comfort zone, so heres some more beasties from mysterious Belkin.
I think this year im going to try and treat some of my own ideas with a bit more worth. When i have alot of time .. or not alot of time, well pretty much all the time i come up with my own ideas for things like the idea for a fictional nomadic race or alien civilisations, but normally i just get bored of them after the initial passion for the idea wares off and never return to them. but ive been returning to this nomad idea a fair bit in the 2 years since i first came up with it and i think each time the quality of the idea and the concepts improves so im going to give it a try and redo a few of my ideas.
Im going to a industry convention in Stuttgart, Germany in may. This event is quite an important date whilst on my course at stoke, so im going this year and the next with the idea that criticism that i get this may will help me to prepare a better portfolio for the next year. so i need to crack on with stuff to put into a portfolio for may.
