Abridged - Death Scene, Joshua Harvey (3D)

Title: Abridged - Death Scene
Name: Joshua Harvey
Country: United States
Software: Maya, Photoshop

This is a styleframe for the last scene in my short film "Abridged". It is an attemp to recreate a hand drawn feel out of an animatable procedure. All tweaks in photoshop are replicatable over time.

EDIT:I've had several suggestions to lower the right knee to the ground, but after painting it down I found that the knee being lifted gave more energy to the pose. I felt it adds to the cringe of the right side of the body.

I have motion tests of another styleframe created from the same passes.

Also here is an image of the passes used.

Really nice love the style like your previous post.. but one small thing though, his right knee's not touching the floor..

There's another thing though... I saw that you used several PS filters to achieve the final look, which makes me wonder how are you going to do that for your film?

aha!, you've caught me, yeah that knee kinda sucks, but I really didnt want to re-render it and I forgot to paint it down some. As far as PS filters go, I have two options, I can load the filter up in AfterFX and see if AfterFX wants to play nice, or I can just batch process them inside of photoshop. I've done some tests and the filters hold up during motion...I'm waiting on some animation from a guy today to do an actual animation test. So hopefully that will be up somewhere soon...

I'll paint that knee down right now...

For some reason it is clearer in the wireframe one that the book is an important part of the image. Not so much in the first one...

i though it was 2D for a second:P love the wire

Very good model. I love the compostition. I noticed that one of his knees is floating from the ground. Also like that toonshade plugin. It does wonders. Nice job.

I felt the sensation of... how to say it... comformation with the shattering of one's faith, the acceptance of a sentence... and that underlaying trait of dispair, just beneath the rational side.

Trully an amazing convey of emotions

The wireframed one did seem smoother, looking forth for some enhancement

EDIT: edited for grammar corrections.
