Animation WIP: While They Slept

Post by Michael J. Dowswell » Tue Feb 24, 2009 8:21 am

While They Slept is a animation that was born inside another animation of mine / is running parallel to another animation of mine The Pilot.

You can view part 1 and a clip from part 2 here

Went back onto the gang plank vehicle...I looked at it and thought to myself “that’s terrible, there’s no detail on it at all” so have put in some details, I still think it needs more though.

Couldn't resist putting the old one next to the new one.

I’m very happy I made this change to the gang plank vehicle...as you can now see...it badly needed it!

It's always fun to see... Nice detail on the second gangplank.

Keep it up.

The not quite complete While They Slept - A Brief Making Of video. But I wanted to upload anyway. Just one of those days where I'm a bit depressed and feel the urge to upload somthing.

Ah, noticed you bounced projects :) The last few pics with the two types of robots looks really cool! Specially like the second one, much due to the lighting and that you dont have to any black or burned out white areas. Looks really nice. The designs of the robots looks whacky and fun!

Thanks Mathias!

Yeah thats the area shadows doing that...they always make things look great but take a age to render, which is not so good for animation rendering with just a couple of machines. I've come up with new ways to go about things though recently that might solve my problems...a bit of a compromise though.

Well...I kept on going like some sort of a mad thing here with this. I've now got another one minute nine seconds.

This next bit of music lasts quite a bit longer, so this is going to be quite lengthy. I'm definitely insane.
