Heres my final image for the image category..... and work in progress for a short movie. I decided to make a animated version of a mother and her alien child to be. I have a cool vision of how it all plays out..but bringing it to life..will be a challenge.

Ok..heres my first storyboard. It took me a few days to come up with the main idea. This wont be easy..being that I only have two weeks to finish... and a few months of 3D experience.

This is the second storyboard. I might change, or add an additional scene in the beginning, we'll see how it goes later.

Finished modeling the star of life. Its a bit different from the death star that we all heard about. This cellular life-form travels billions of light years away..searching for an which it'll soon find on planet earth. I will start modeling earth and the space scene tonight.

Had to do a bit of research to model earth.... but after viewing the latest entries, I might have to give up. 3D is tough, and I'm years behind:(

Yes! Just when I was about to give up..we get a bonus of 9 days! This is the wire frame for the blood cell ride.

This was a tough one to rig and animate. Now that I have the animation going..Im having trouble with the rendering. Just cant get it to look like I pictured it.
