I've been a lurker here for a while, and I'm making a new animation for a uni assignment at the moment, thought I'd post some WIP shots in here. There's an out of date video on my website as well (don't know if I'm allowed to post links, but it's in my profile if you're interested enough to have a nosy).
The theme is to use some sort of machine, so I've gone with the obvious and used a cyborg type creature for a little fight. The creatures will have attachments to their arms like guns and drills and things, so they look a bit odd at the moment.
I kind of want it to be absolutely amazing so I can get good jobs (and maybe freelance work) riding on the back of it. I've got some other stuff in my portfolio, but this should be easily the best if it all works out.
I'm just working on the animation at the moment, and have only put a basic scenery and lighting in. I've also just discovered depth of field - well, I knew about it before, but didn't realise disabling anti aliasing and filtering didn't have that much impact on the final image, so I never used it before because with anti aliasing on it always took forever to render!
Anyway, any comments and advice would be welcome! :)
