Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Beware of Dog - Conceptualizing



Okey Doke, I'm extremely jazzed about this challenge. Here's a simple character sketch of the main guy in my story.

Allright,

I saw the topic posted this morning, and I immediately remembered an idea that I'd had a couple months back for a short animation. Basically it's about a hideous Sphynx cat who would rather live his life as a dog. He dresses is a plastic dog's skull, sniffs other dogs rears, plays poker, all in a vain attempt to be a dog.

Here's a concept image that I drew at work this morning:




This is going to be a challenge because I've never animated quadrapeds. I threw together a quick skeletal model this afternoon for an animation test and did a very sloppy 4 legged animation. It's two hours worth of work all together. A very basic rig, mostly FK with IK for the legs (hence the stiffness of the back). Anyone have any tips or tutorials for creating quadraped rigs?

Nothingness - Yeah, it's been a while. I'll troll the forums, mostly the HCM challenges, but I'm working 80 hour work weeks. I'm afraid I can be a little ADD-ish with challenges. Hopefully full on animation will keep me motivated.

Intervain - I've wanted to do an animated entry for a while. I'm always coming up with new ideas for animations, but can never find the correct forum or practical reason to make them. And voila, the CGSociety just dropped one in my lap. Cheers.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Humphrey



OK, here's our straight-man. The cat that attempts to be the voice of reason against our Dog-wannabe.

Concept Sketch or 3D pre-visualization: Wannabe Model Construction



Okay, since this is going to be an animation, there really isn't any use doing a 3D layout just yet. Here's the preliminary construction of our main character's pre Zbrush mesh. Lots of work left.

Not so fast my friend! slow down abit!! I can't catch up , good start .
 
Old 06 June 2007   #11
No kidding. I always get REALLY excited towards the beginning, so I ride that adrenaline rush and get more work done. But the thing is, I'm thinking this may end up being a full 3-minute animation with LOTS of dialogue. I just hope I finish this time. Thanks for the support.

Allright,

Tomorrow I'll be busy with work, so I figured I oughta finish off the Pre-Z version of our main cat tonight. He looks a little Chihuahua-ish without wrinkles. Think a Sphynx cat, that's what I'm going for.

Here's his head turn-around. Click.



Don't expect any more updates until Thursday.

Fast modeling man.

Only little comment it that there should be like a hole inside the ear. Just cause now there is just the ear-shell on the head.
If you understand what i mean.


cheers
