Current Project : Steampunk Myths and Legends CGChallenge

2008-Oct-10
Hello all

I'm Ronald.
My two buddies, Yongyi and Zichao, and I have worked together on numerous occasions on creative projects and results were quite desirable..

3 of us suddenly have come up with an idea to create experimental CG projects in our free time. e are in discussion of our first experimental project and progress will be on the way!

The objective of this blog is to log our progress as we go along. We will get wacky and creative as we progress and hopefully be able to inspire other learning artists :D

Here is the blog address to keep our log: http://channelbox.blogspot.com/

Our first project is to focus on creating an appealling character.

So far, we have decided on creating a traditional chinese lion dance character with a playful personality.

We have developed some visuals so far and locking down on the final design for our character.
Yong yi will be posting final design soon :)

Here's some updates for the Eyeka Asia Competition!
The objective is to create a short animation with tells the audience how to pronounce
Eye - ka as in... "I" "ka"...

It's pretty challenging for us and we came up with many visual ideas and aids such as a crazy wacky mouth character to lip sync the pronounciation! Hahaha! Hope all goes well!

I checked out the video first and I didn't have a clue what was going on until I read your post about what it was. Very abstract and confusing. :curious: sorry I don't really have a contructive input.. just giving you an initial response as I do with everything else.

the final movie looks much better than what I was looking at.. it looked like a tough concept to translate into a movie. good job.
