Still 3d ing

Light Sabre 

Continued learning more modelling.  For now I am just following the Tutorial by CG geek.  Though it is not all virtual - to balance here is a watercolour.

Venture into 3d (again)

First 3d in a while 


I think this is the first time I have shown any 3d work on this blog.  I started out learning 3d way back when.  I did some tuts in Maya and decided the software was too cumbersome for 1 person to work on projects at a reasonable rate and my 2d skills were too poor to model well.  That was about 10 years ago. Well the software and myself (I hope) have improved so I thought it would be useful to get some skills in 3d.  I decided to use Blender primarily because it is free but also because I have noticed more folks using it. So I went back to the tutorials and have been working through them with varying success,  This was the first one a tutorial by  CG geek  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lj643VmTsg&t=867s.

Little buildings

Abbey

Castle
Practiced a few isometric buildings in Photoshop.  Not too much  to say about these except I was trying out a few different processes and tools to see which would work best.

Water Scheme

Water Scheme 
Tried something a little different here.  Went back to Photoshop with an isometric layout and some simple animation.  Played about with some different techniques and work flows.

I had previously tried some basic animation in Photoshop.  With this image I did create a simpler animation but I did want to try it in Flash. Yip I have some old software.  This was the first time I had tried to use it for this.  I got some basic animation and then dropped some sound in as well so there is a still image and this animated version.  The biggest thing with the animation is to plan ahead and have the right elements separated out - still lots to learn.
