Our first animation tests.

This is our main character, naked!

None of these animation tests are part of our short movie. They were made only to test the RIG of Gadanthara (the main character). Thanks to these tests we were able to find a lot of bugs and correct them. The RIG is quite OK now. We will post more animation tests soon.

Paper test

Posted in Tests with tags on February 17, 2008 by Dilly

Short Shading / texture / Rig Test made some time ago (about one month). Things like render time and memory consumption was tested to. Several things are not so good: Like the “Edges” of the paper folds. But this shows how the paper can be in the short.

Made using development versions of Blender (Revision 13xxx, I think). Making use of things like: Mesh Deform Modifier and AAO and new Constraints. GIMP for texture manipulation.

This one is the last paper test, since we are aiming for a different design for the whole movie (in the original idea everything would be done as if it were made of paper). But make no mistake: we still have allot of paper on the movie and this “Paper” is crucial for the history of the short.

But design decisions, character concepts and other things are parts of the next posting…
