Hello everyone, my name is Remo Wieland. I have also just graduated from Vancouver Film School where I specialised in 3d modeling. At long last here it is, the last few months of my life summed up in 2 and a half minutes: (

Good job Remo. I especially like your chapel, the textures and lighting is very well done.

Good luck to you and keep in touch.

thanks for the props. People do seem to like the building more. I probably should have featured it instead on my teaser card. Let me make up for that now:

also jigsawe, let me know about my model, I'l love to see it animated. I even have time now to custom-make you a rig just the way you like it if that would help.

I like the demo reel a lot. Though I would like to see more of the wireframe or show off of the actual chapel as it looks like a lot of work was done there.

Also good idea to provide direct download links on your first entry on this thread so we dont have to go any further then we need to ;).

Keep it up!

Hi Remo,

Congrats on getting the reel done and online. I really like it and I think It shows how much work you put in over the year. I love the "butter troll" though I must say seeing all that reference for her was interesting...

I love the atmosphere you got into the cathredral. Looks great :)

Good luck with the job hunt.

yo Remo, awesome to see your demo online!

Cool Stuff man. First time I've seen a 'heavy' women modelled, you did a good job. I especially like the jester, take off his head and put it on another body and you have an Excellent Joker, i would love to see THAT! Like the other guy said I would LOVE to animate that Joker.

Nice job Remo its good to see this all finally put together. I really like the transition from the drape to the actual jesters eye. The lighting and girl came out really nice as well. Good luck on the job hunt!

Hey, cool stuff. I think it conveys a real nice sense of mood and atmosphere.

I've got two suggestions tho; The hair over the concubine's shoulder falls in too straight a line, with the ends being perfectly even, I don't think it would ever fall like that in the real world unless it was just cut in that position. Might be worth tinkering with that a little as it jumped out at me.

My other suggestion would be to add some wine splashing out of the cup, everything else feels suspended in time, and when you panned up to the cup I immediately looked for that to be splashing out, but it wasn't, and I was a bit dissapointed that it wasn't. I think a little splash, or bringing it right up to the brim so its just about to spill, would be more interesting, and add some more suspense to the scene.

Other than those to things, it looks pretty solid all around, great mood/atmosphere, the concubine's face looked particularly real to me. Nice work.:thumbsup:

Yea, the hair was the last thing I worked on, and I kind of ran out of time. I tried splitting the hair ends, but it just ended up splitting the whole length instead and then interpolated it in a strange way that made it grow through her neck. I gave up playing with it when I realized I wouldn't have enough time to render it out before it was due if I didn't start right away.

I hear you on the wine too. I always thought it should spill out like that too, but I thought maybe it was just me, and in the end I cut that idea too for simplicity even though it would have been pretty easy to do.
