Modeling: The settings

Hi there.

Heres a setting I made for the short animation im going to do.

The idea is to have a astronaut expressing some strange behavior before leaving earth in his small spacerocket.

Hope you like it.

Cute looking spaceship! Is the astronaut going to be a human?
It kind of reminds me of "Astronaut Farmer" project!
Looking forward to see more of this!
Good luck!

Modeling: Astronaut

Hey there.

Another update.

The astronaut in his rough form. Im not sure about his dimensions yet.

My idea is to depict the astronaut doing something non-action behavior. Calm but strange.

He could be packing the rocket with a picnic-basket and a tiled blanket while talking on the phone. Ofcause the animation is gonna end with the rocket taking off. Im aiming for 10-30 seconds of animation.

Hi .
I love the background setting! It has a certain cozyness to it. (It seems like the stool is floating a bit though ).
I like the astronaut's style too, but the torso seems to be missing some detail. (Maybe astronaut suits are like that )

Good luck and have fun ^^

Modeling: More work on the settings

Hi there. A bit more stuff in the settings now. Im going back to those sphere trees. They are so cool I think.

Old 07 July 2007   #11
Good idea witht he sphere trees. You're right, sphere trees ARE cool! ^^
Might I ask how you made the leaves on this one?

mim-Armand: thanks m8. I dont know about his hair. Think ill redo it.=)

DeadSquirrel: Thanks. About the leaves, they are 4 polygons and snapped around the sphere. Make 10 or 20 evenly around the sphere, and pop the pivot in the sphere center. Then you can copy the 20 leaves and rotate some 10 times or so, to get the desired density of leaves. Actually, I think ill double up the numbers of leaves and then hide the sphere. That looks bit better (but is obviours more heavy).

Modeling: more work on the settings

Hey people.

I moddeled the car which the astronaut is going to arrive in. Hope you like it

Hope to have a storyboard up and running soon.

So far the plot is as simple as it can get. The astronaut arrives at the rocket with his car. He steps out, and takes a picnic-basket and a fuel-container from the trunk of the car and jumps happily to the rocket and puts the basket in the rocket. He fill up the gas on the rocket and enters. The rocket starts and is blow off into the air.

Sweet! modelling and rendering aghill, the new textures look great too and compliment your style well
Those who know it can't be done should stop interrupting those who are doing it

hey, this might be my favourite entry so far. modelling, texturing, style and storyline are all top notch. should be fun doing some sweet dynamics stuff on the rocket take-off.

seems like you could throw some more polys at the car, (aroudn the wheel rim)
