Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: freeFall

Here is my pre-vis stuff. this animation is going to be based off a 2d cartoon idea i've been working on recently. decided it would be cool to convert to 3d for this competition. still getting the idea fleshed out, but it will revolve around this skydiver and his interaction w/ an alien ship. depending on the time, i may introduce some "men in black" into the scene as well.

the original cartoons for freeFall can be seen here:, this should give you an idea about the type of humor i am going for.

thanks for taking the time to check out my entry!

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: swan dive

just a concept. this pic actually gives me a bit of motion sickness!

still working out the maya cloth...hoping it works...the tests look pretty neat, but a bit out of control.

Shading (Textured and lit): body parts

almost finished textured, lighting, etc. i'm sure i'll make a handful of tweaks. i want to add a spec. map to the helmet, still. i have a few other things i "want" to do, but we'll see how it goes w/ time.

Modeling: alien test

not finished.....but this is progress on one of the inhabitants that will be in the ship that our brave skydiver will encounter.

still have some modeling to do, trying to make him look non-threatening...almost as if he could be friendly. the texture is not complete, either...have a handful of details that i want to add.

modeling with polys in maya.

Modeling: alien progress

more progress on the alien. i can't help but work the textures and the modeling at the same time. anyway, all polys from maya. made the skin texture in photoshop by creating a few different layers of skin to try an add some depth. a few bad seams, but that can be corrected down the road.

The alien looks good, the pose of the man too.

Very nice and friendly monster! Reminds me somwhat on Star Wars. Also atmosphere is very good, colours are in harmony of mad fall . Possibly you can work a bit on the parachuter's face, it is little bit plain, flat, when compared with alien!
