I've completed the walkway now and dropped it into the scene and I'm much happier than I was earlier with it. I'll work on the other parts of the Launch area now I think it's coming together quite well.
I thought that I would give you guys and update of where this environment is at the moment. I have just finishing qickly blocking out where the sign, hills and satelite will be place. Now I am gonna start adding alot more detail to them and then start working on the foreground of the environment.
Ok guys, I put the chimps head into ZBrush to make a little bit of texture for a displacement map and then made a colour texture for his face. It needs more work and it's not definitive. Let me know what you think anyway.
Here are the notes about the points we discussed today in our meeting. If there is something I missed out just let me know.
So we decided that we would divided the share of the modelling with the aim to get all modelling done in the next 2 weeks.
List of what there is to Model
The Moon plus the buildings, Mars ,Earth (First opening scene) Space Station Space Capsules Spaceship Desert Environment (plus all props within that environment rocks etc) Plane Crash Environment (inside if needed) Frog Design Hollywood Sign & Satellite Characters (Adam, Eve, Bubbles & Frog)
Plus here are the other tasks Previz Final Script Looking at the text we could use for our trailer Textures & Matte paintings
With only 8 weeks left, we decided to spilt the remaining time up into sections, so we know what we have to concentrate on and when
1. Modelling (2 weeks) 2. Previz/Script (1 week) 3. Texturing/Lighting/Rendering (3/4 weeks) 4. Post Production (1/ week)
These are really rough sketches of different props that the characters could either carry or props that could be placed in certain scenes. I am trying to make the props look really bad so they don't look like they either work or belong there.
I am not sure if we have talked about this, but I was thinking maybe our characters could be carrying some kind of weapon, that they don't know how to use or looks so ridiculous that it wouldn't work. These are just a few inspired by different films but I was think even more ridiculous than this. What do you guys think?
