So when I started talked to Ryan a few weeks back, he suggested that I make some mock screenshots of my animation.
I started doing that for the first scene but thought that it would be easier to take the screenshots whilst I animate the character for each scene.
This mock screenshot was made in Photoshop with the character just rendered in Maya and saved as a .png and the orb was made in a separate layer with an outer glow effect.
I decided on the more simplistic orb which was made in Flash and imported into a After Effects to add a glowing effect on it after asking for the opinion of several people and I agree that it looked much better than the other ones I have made.
The above scene was taken from my After effects file for compositing all the videos/ image sequences together. Effects and colour correction will be on a different posts. Above is Scene 1.
More of the Mock screenshots will be up and posted once I have animated them.
