Nicely put together. I love your lighting and camera sense, it is very cinematic. Keep up the good work, don't stop! :beer:

I would think about getting rid of the copied pictures from Princess Monenoke on your reel. It looks bad passing off plagiarized work as your own to future employers.

Thanks dongle for your comments, i really worked hard putting together dramatic shots with slow "arc" camera moves.

ed209, i think you've got the wrong idea about the monoke paintings, i would come to think that most people in the "art biz" are well aware that the paintings are from miyazaki's film, i painted them because it's one of my favorite movies... i've already posted that painting before.

A demo reel is a representation of YOUR work, not the works of other artists. I was just trying to give you a bit of a warning that including that type of material on your reel may in fact hurt your chances at getting a job. Do whatever you wan't though, I was just trying to help you out.

ed209: I totally agree... if you are gonna put drawing on your demo reel they should be your original designs not copyied artwork. Copying artwork is great for learning but not showcasing your skill.

The modeling was pretty good.
Here are some crits...
As far as the animation is concerned... it was pretty weak. There were too many freeze instances in the motion and the motion needed more follow through. Also, I agree with _ed209_ but I would extend it to pretty much all your concept work. It doesn't match the quality of your modeling skills. The figure drawing was not bad but I would re-think your concept stuff. One piece of advice "Employers judge you by your weakest piece... not your strongest."

I hope this was some what helpful. Just remember that we all are working on improving ourselves and don't take it personally.

:hmm:

Umm, thanx for all your comments. seems i'm getting more comments on my drawings during the credits, rather than the 3d stuff.... oh well :eek:

RedSilas: thanx for your comments man, i made this reel as a modeling reel, the animation in the reel is very short and very subtle, i didnt want no exaggerated movements in it. as for the conecept art, i really got good feedback on the concepts from others so that's why they are in, i guess it's a matter of taste.

i'd appreciate more comments, cheers

everybody knows who princess mononoke is...

and since art of her WAS in the credits... i think its fine,
should maybe have a small title, saying its your rendering of your/ FAN ART. then you'd pass for the copyRights :)

just say FAN ART... everybody will understand...
after all you were just distplaying your 2d skills... Not character design :)

btw i was at ur graduation screening, on june... congrats!:bounce:
