ok, i didn't make the first thread right, let me try this again... :)


here's yet another VFS new grad, how's everyone and my fellow VFS 3D class37???

so here's my demo reel, it's "finished" but there're a few effects and animation that i hope i have chance to refine, especially on the clouds particles and cloth simulation. please take a look, and i really look forward to all your comments!

Wow, you're project came out great! I'm very impressed with how good it turned out. I'm glad to see that all of your hard work paid off. Can't wait to see you in the industry in a few years, showing everyone what animation is all about!

Helen, so everything turned out just fine for you eh?? hehheh, I think you have done a good job on the compositing. Your animation is smooth, very fine piece of animation you have got there, keep up the good work

I agree with what has been said, it looks good. Two Problems I see(It's easy to find error in everyone elses work, just not my own, lol) The first, the camera flys through some foilage at one point, and continues on, why? This part of the scene is not entertaining, so should be reworked. Second, she is flying and foating, but has no secondary action from her legs. If she is moving through some supernatural force from her center of gravity, then fine, but have it move and things follow that action, and be effected by it as well. I think maybe if you tried to tackle half of the length of the animation ,really prefecting that stuff, it would be killer.

I really like the model and scene, good work!

thanks everyone for your kind words!

dtrimble, many thanks for your valuable feedback, I'll watch out the problems that you mentioned when i refine the piece in the next few weeks. Indeed I had a hard time figuring out how she was gonna move before I animated her, even towards the end of production I was still experimenting with some of her movement style. It's a VERY FUN piece to work with as the first student project, but my next project is SOOOO gonna be cartoony i'm sure! :scream:
