Re: Your Random Creations

Video isn't working for me, for whatever reason. But this thing looks way cooler than I thought it would.

Must be the lack of lego-bumpy surfaces, maybe. It just looks like a big, proper model. Fuckin' rad.

Same thing here now. I think it's on Youtube's side. Weird.

Re: Your Random Creations

Just checked my embeds in the Shelterbooks thread; they don't seem to be working, either.

Hm.

Re: Your Random Creations

Something to do with embedding it I think. I just copied the link and went directly there and it worked fine.

Re: Your Random Creations

My anxiety has been kicking my ass about how my anxiety is preventing me from playing with the rest of you lot, and the stuff I'm working on right now isn't super conducive to sharing Fuck yeah, make stuff things... so my brain is just kinda in a permanent fomo -> anxienty -> guilt -> fomo -> etc loop as of late.

So IDK, here's an eyeball I've been working on for Innervate. er somethin.

Re: Your Random Creations

Thanks doods. It's been... uh... a long road. This is 4th time I've tried building this thing from the ground up since October, and finally found a way to make it work the way I wanted.

Re: Your Random Creations

Haven't posted anything in a while so here's a still from the shot I just finished that I'm really pretty damn happy with.

This also represents the last shot of the shots to be fully completed for this scene *pops mini bottle of champagne*.

Re: Your Random Creations

I'm gonna go out on a limb and call this a "speed build", start to finish of actually working on it about 4 days interspersed with a million other things.

Small growing flower element for Innervate, and certainly one of the more interesting rigs I've built, the entire thing is controlled by one slider.

Re: Your Random Creations

Thanks duuude big_smile It's an absolute clusterfk of shape keys, armatures and curve modifiers, but it actually works and looks pretty much like what I was hoping for, so that's an A+ win in my book.

Did a fully rendered test last night: https://i.imgur.com/t2nAJhC.mp4

And hey, since we're on the subject of blooming things anyways... another flower element for another shot: https://i.imgur.com/rv3SEL7.mp4

Finally managed to find a way to make this one work by making a boatload of shapekeys based on inverting the flower and throwing some softbody physics on it, so gravity pulls it down into the folded up form, and then reversing everything so it "blooms".

Re: Your Random Creations

Today was Convocation Day for the college I work at, and due to all the *makes world exploding gesture*, you know, the College decided to go with a virtual convocation. So that's been my life at work for the past month and a bit.

I have no expectations of anyone to watch these, but I figured I might as post em in case someone's reeeeaaaaaaaallllllyyy bored. But there's a few nice bits of mograph I'm proud of, including the end title animation which has been an ongoing process since I started last year.

Feels a hell of a lot longer than 2 weeks since I posted the growing flower wow, but digging back into Innervate with one of the shots that growing flower is for:

Re: Your Random Creations

Thanks dude, it's gotten a lot easier/smoother/better since I decided to steer into the skid and embrace the glow-y painterly look, there was a long while there where I just really hated the look of some of the stuff I was putting out, but over the past 6 months or so I've really found the groove and started bringing everything to a place I really like.

And I've been avoiding making claims like that cause the universe has invariably come along and gone "HAH, fuck you" and thrown a meteor at me that pushes it back another 6 months, but considering it's 2020 and like, that's basically been this entire year.... if I can actually work on it consistently, about another month/month and a half on visuals, and then a couple months for sound design depending how quickly I pick up on Reaper's shenanigans.
