Storyboard and Sketchs of my character. I use drawings to get the story and personality going, and leave much of the design work to 3D (no blueprints etc.). Not always fastest way, but gives interesting results.

Modeling stage ready. Lots of clean wall area. Hope that reflections will make them interesting.

My idea was to put more detail to the environment than on the bat. I just wanted to keep him simple and get the attention to the animation.

It's a bit difficult to read your story from the storyboard (too small), anyway, is it a bit complicated, or am I wrong? It would be nice to see a playblast, in order to grasp the action better. The bathroom is looking nice, have you thought about adding a few errors, like a broken tile, or some dirt. That might give the scene more atmosphere. Good luck to you!

I think you can get some idea of my characters "inner feelings". I think he hasn't had a very easy life.

Hi everybody and sorry for beeing silent for a while. It seems that one can use 3ds Max fluently, but still manage to mess up with simple file transfers.

- For some reason I cannot post attachments so I could only post staff on my milestones, therefore small filesize and too small storyboards. Probably I could enter both sheets of storyboard separately, but as I've already posted the final video, and don't want to put any milestones anymore.

Broken tiles, dirt etc. for the bathroom would usually been the way to go, but I wanted to keep everything clean. Maybe something really small, like little spots (dryied water) could have worked. In the end there were lots of stuff that I couldn't get in because I wanted to do quite a long story, so everything isn't so polished as it could be.

Thank you for your comments.
