And more geek tech...

I'm sick so I've been sitting in the same chair for like awhile...hence the mad blogging...

I seem to remember I took a year designing and creating all the elements for WATS and for HSM I have it scheduled for 6 months...So just now when I should be going to sleep I started to freak out a little..OMG all that in 6 months!?!?! Ya know what freaks me out the most modeling, boning, rigging and skinning... cause I dont really know what I'm doing and when it comes out right I'm all surprised haha... but yeh I could hit major time snags with that... I dont really worry about the other stuff...like the ideas...

I can't wait to start doing some 3d tests so I can develop a new style... there's been some 3d stuff that I liked the look of FF7: Advent children being one... I also liked the 3d in the intro of Hellboy 2 I saw recently....but ya know me I have to be original so I will develop something that looks WIN but doesn't take 1000 years to render... also I'm not sure about my humanoids...how stylized will they be? I don't know yet...

BREAKDOWNS learn to love them...I break everything down at each stage of the production process... as soon as I finish the animatic I will make a breakdown sheet listing all the sets/characters/accessories I need to build... pretty much building blocks of the HSM universe... ya know trees, buildings, monsters, weapons...stuff like that... after I list it all I make a schedule to design it all after building a new workstation to design it all on and fixing up the new studio space to put the computer in...SHIT its all so complicated...that and I'm sick...well at least I have a composer now so I wont have to do that, that will save some time and I'm meeting with the sound designer Thursday so he'll have more than a year to do his thang rather than 3 weeks like last time 0_o

But I should just say from my experience FEAR and ANXIETY are just a part of the process... being UNSURE being AFRAID feeling like your skills are INADEQUATE feeling like you DONT HAVE ENOUGH TIME...feeling like YOU DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING... all them thangs come with the territory... so if your feeling like that don't worry just KEEP GOING full steam AHEAD! ^ ^

I'll be here doing the same! Lets see what some "amateurs" can do!

  1. Your mention of 3D style and Hellboy reminded me of a favorite clip from a recent SIGGRAPH: "Monster Samurai" by Sprite Animation Studios.

    It's probably more cartoony than the style you're looking for, but I note that, like you, they aren't afraid to make hard-edged polygons part of their style. :)
