My animatic WIP is now in Tumblr because blogspot doesn't support video uploads, but the final version I will upload to youtube, for embedding justice. I hope you like it!

Here are some progress sketches of my sketchbook assignment from last week's and this week's. There are some familiar faces from DigiPen, although the other 5 of the sketches are from my Indonesian Church group.
This week's sketches are mostly about gesture poses for next semester's character. I think by drawing a few sketches I've already thought of the personality of my character on the fly, an overconfident and reckless spy.

Hey guys, I have quite an update this weekend, so let's get up to speed. I have a few things to show this time around, yea?
The first, is my (crappy) Samurai. Turns out putting on alphas on armor isn't as easy as I thought it'd be, as the leg armor and hip guard are lacking in detail. I promise I'll fix it by the end though, don't worry. And these colors aren't going to be the final colors, as they are just the default colors of the matcaps I'm using.
The next batch is my storyboard pass before I change it to an animatic. The only critique I've been getting out of people seem to be that the water pipe in the 3rd page didn't show up until the end of the scene, and the crane shot at the 3rd page isn't reading very well. Overall, it's nice though, so I will fix those before my final animatic.
The last thing that I'll show you guys for now is my exterior design concept to model in Maya. It's pretty much a hillbilly shack in the middle of the swamp/bayou. It's going to be quite interesting, shaping this environment as it goes along. What happened to my interior? Well, it sucks, for now. I will improve it and show it to you guys at the end of the semester though, never fear!
And, I suppose that's all I have to share for you this week though. I know, I still have some sketchbook dumps I could put in, but I really want to try getting some life drawing stuff in, I haven't done those in a while. Next week, I promise.

Well, ZBrush isn't going to swell for me now. I've tried to sculpt in the basics, but unfortunately, I can't add the finer details through my alpha brushes without my computer crashing on me. I might have to reinstall ZBrush. But overall I am quite proud with the results of my character, sans the details on the armor. Next week, DETAIL, and COLOR : D

This week, we're supposed to seperate the story structures in shorts. We need an aanlysis of 2 different shorts, so I did Alma, and Death Buy Lemonade.
2. Death Buy Lemonade
And here are the sketches for this week. It's back to doing a single figure in location. There are some proportional issues, but so far, they are at least still within the standards of what I did last week.

For my Digital Sculpting class, I am done with the base model of my samurai. Final result is around 8000 polys. It's unique because I have to intentionally model each part differently. Currently, I am sculpting in ZBrush. Will update when it's done.
On the other hand, for my projects class, I have to model in one basic shape, and pay attention to the basic edge loops. Currently, I am unwrapping and texturing my character. Also will update when it's done.
Well, here are some of my recent sketches that we have to do as a second assignment for Storyboards class. I had regressed in my drawings quite a bit, but I am quickly gaining momentum every week I do for sketches. Sketches for week 2 are sort of.. weird.
And.. I guess that's all I'm willing to show for now : D
