Throughout the semester I have been creating a few extra bits and peices in my spare time. This stuff is for me personally as I feel that it allows me to continue my learning process within nuke and maya.
I tend to split it up into three different sections
- Digital Painting
- Visual Effects
I draw this on my Ipad, using an app called Procreate. I feel that it allows for alot of freedom, especially when you are using an ipad brush.
I am not a fan of modelling things such as Heads or humans or weird creatures within Zbrush. I do tend to like modelling hard surface objects within Maya though. Items which have a hard and solid structure to them. I am not a great modeller in general, however I do enjoy going into Maya and modelling smaller, less complex things.
Personally I feel that my piece ‘Wee Onzies’ doesnt hold many great shots that I would put in my personal showreel, therefor throughout the semester, I have been creating my own VFX clips to help improve by showreel and also to help build my understanding of Nuke. I didnt get as many pieces done as I would have liked as the Major project work load became increasingly larger each week, but I feel that I kept on top of a these extra pieces and was able to create a couple of extra pieces which I can plane in my showreel.
