polishing AnimJam among other things (Class 06 Week 08)

hey there,

this has been an intresting week... as i mentioned last week i started working on a new shot using spiderbot unfortunatly i havnt completed blocking it (not much time with me working on 6 different shtos at same time all of it on polishing stage...)

here is the upload for this week


also over the weekend thanks to a friend of mine i got a test in prana studio... it was an interesting test had lot of fun over the weekend doing it (sadly it meant i had to work on sunday but... oh well... ) finally got to use malcom... and its a good rig... and i mean really goood rig... its a really really good rig (once u get over the fear of over 500 control curves on it :D) i didnt get a chance to push the rig to its limit (since it was a test after all ) hope i can try out malcom and bonnie rig at some time in future... (more things on my animation to do list :'(   )

sadly i cant post the test up on net...so i guess it stays in my hard disk for now...

speaking of hard disks... another awesome thing happend this weekend... my good old harddisk crashed (luckily day after submitting my work to the HR ) i did lose a great deal of date but luckily none of the important stuff.. it was a good thing that i back my work up every day (or atleast quite often) onto my external drive... thought i lost my secondary drive (the 1TB one which was secondary to the 500GB one ) it ws still weird that it wouldnt boot up even thought the hard disk containg windows was connected properly so i had to reinstall windows (thats when i found out really) so now in the process of reestablishing all the customization i made to my windows... though it did give the oppurtunity to do a clean start and just install the stuff i need... but still lot of work... and lot of work left to do...

well thats it for now...

p.s being tech savy rules... thanks to singing into chrome bar i never lost any of my bookmarks... so as soon as i installed chrome and signed in again i got back my old preferences... YAAY!!!

polishing and more polishing (class 06 week 07)

hey there,

this week was very different... since Jason (my mentor :D ) was unavailable this week so I had Dana Boadway fill in for him...
it was quite a fresh eye on my shots...

apart from this I kinda started working on a new shot... it kinda started more as just an expriment (same thing can be said with Ice-Scream shot ) using a spiderbot rig is really challenging... hope to get the blocking done so its kinda good for upload maybe in a weeks time r so :)

well thats it for now

weight Lift refining and misc polishing (class 06 Week06)

hey there,

late post as usual... and making use of the awesome time travelling device blogger has invented to put this post in the past...

this week has been really intresting (especially the weekend) went to aero show india 2013 on saturday with my cousin... and shouted myself till i lost my voice to cheer the awesome aerobatics skills displayed there...

one thing i noted... there was an awesome composition built into the show with use of smoke trails... no matter how fast the jets were moving... with clever use of smoke trails and such the audience never missed a trick... and always knew where to pay attention to... (i suppose since it costs quite alot of money to organize it, it would have been waste if audience missed the tricks)

well back to the reason i make these posts.. my progress
this week i finally got my animation out of step and  into spline... i noticed that unconciously i have changed my method of working... it has become more strightahead then i intended it to be (i blame it on auto tangent... but then those are only excuses) so will make sure that my next shot (most likely after the course ends) will be more ok the old pose to pose method that i had come to know and love...

well thats it for now
