Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Tata o' malanga (guateque) Party


My first challenge, no good skill in 3D still beginner in this matter and worst English but pa’ lante, the concept is based in this history:

The great master sorcerer Cuban tata o’malanga, discover very old ritual of the Osha, who give the name of the sentence “making conscience”, sprinkle (pitch) a little plant very gentle care to rise in your mind for this come and sleep in the guateque (party) of this tata is no the best form to end, only is you want to convert in one of the living moving irocos plant.

Best wishes.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: story


This storyboard is a excuse to call this animation, I star to think maybe I wrong to go for animation but i have a little experience in traditional animation and some in rigging but with the rig etc is a great time to do something nice.

To understand the story here a few explanation:

Close up of ear we see drop a seed and star to grow inside of this - the camera travel in zoom back, and show the scene of the concept, and close to the eyes of the poor guy and I use a fast change and go to the optic of the guy, and see a close-up image subjective of the Irocos and Tata face.

This all, I hope I can finish.

All comments and critics are welcome.

PS. Sorry for my English, lucky for you never listen my tarzan spoke.

Modeling: wire mesh face second character


Beging 2 character, very simple is only the basic mesh wire.

Modeling: Tata smooth


The Tata smooth, the hair and cloth I do later with dynamic not model, for speed the animation, well I try, some time the cloth simulation are very hard and is better cloth poly and some reactor in vertices, I not sure for this in this moment, any comments and critics are welcome.

Ania – yes is the evil, thanks I try to spend more time in this because I am very slow and when I see the others works I feel I need more practice and speed jeje.

Hola Gustavo, me gusta muchiisimo la idea! Great idea and very original approach! A Osha ritual sounds cool man!! and the design of characters is really nice with a unique style, great latinoamerican touch!! (sabor!! hermano!! sii!!) I cant wait to see the Irocos plant men models!
(Sobre tu storyboard, creo que al final, siguiendo en subjetiva, el "chavo" al que le implantaron la semilla, debería observarse las manos y los brazos y ver como se convierte en una planta, sólo una idea, no me hagas caso english version - I think that at the end of the animation the guy with the seed, in a subjective shot, stare his hands and see the transformation to a plant, only a comment-) Again great work and following your progress in the concept and animation ( Aqui sigo para apoyarte Gustavo !! )

this is funny how there are so much common points between your designs and african masks. I love this kind of character but i prefer the first one, the shapes are clearer.

Jayf - Thanks for the comments, is true i based in african art, here in caribbean are much african culture, with rituals, music, dance, etc i love too this art off course with sabor latino, look alike but not the same, i try to clean the shapes.
