3D Work in Progress

This is a first rough of a character for a new series of illustrations I'm working on. The thumbnail links to an HDTV 720p render.

I'm planning to add a few tutorials for budding 3D animators out there. Effectively the workflow is:

  • Create the puppets and sets to specification.
  • Rig them (that's the computer equivalent of adding their strings).
  • Pose, light the scene, render and composite (a fancy word for layering your image output)
  • then tweak it if necessary in P.Shop.

Watch this space. Next time this poor little gentleman should have hair and clothes.
