Getting closer

Ok.. I ve played  quite a LOT with Blender . Honestly, A LOT.

I ve read a couple of books about Blender ( The Essential Blender  & Introducing Character Animation with Blender) watched over and over and over again tutorials, then watched them again, then tried to follow them, then watched them again.

It doesn’t sound tiring, but trust me after a while, it gets… Still, the results of all this reading and watching the tutorial is rather pleasant and I think Mr. Birdie is getting there.. I don’t know yet where “there” is, but he is getting closer!

OK, in this picture he suffers from strabismus , but I promise you he is going to get surgery before the Final Project and his eyes will be just fine.

Blendering Mr.Birdie

Here is the very first attempt  to ‘touch’ blender to “model” Mr. Birdie.

He does improve. I promise.
Still I wanted to share this  to make him justice. He is cute.

looking for a character

Here are some early stage sketches trying to find my animation’s protagonist…

Jinx the cat

I do have some sort of obsession with cats so the obvious thing for me was to try and  make a cat character.. I named her Jinx. It sounds a bit oxymoron to love cats and name one jinx but still here she is..

poppy the puppy

Well, say “Hello!” to Poppy.  A lovely puppy.. but it wasn’t him I was looking for…

Lucky the ducky

This is Ellie.   the bunny of the “gang”. In Greek bunny is ” κουνέλι “ (pronounced ‘kouneli’) and this  character is named after my friend Ellie and the long long days spent at her place in Leith.

Rory the hamster

and so it begun..

Ok.. so lets begin.

The story goes like this,  3D modeling and I , well it was love at first sight.
And as “true” love, it looked beautiful but was hiding great expectations and really hard days to come.

When I started thinking of my final project, I knew that it had to be  ‘something’  that had to do with 3D.

I did not have a clear concept in mind of what the story would be  so  I started doing what I know best, took out my sketchbook and pencil and started doodling ,trying to find a character to bring to life.
