Research: Tips and Tricks

In this blog post, I have decided to put the videos which helped me achieve something in Maya such as a roof cloth that appears to be slightly weighed down because of no wood beam support to animating the camera in different angles and doing cut scenes.

 

I used this for the roof cloth because it applied gravity and helps with how it looked.

Previs: Textures

In this blog post, these are pretty much the textures I have used and most of them I have created myself. with the exception of the roof and dirt.

Visual Research:3D Previs Environment

For the environment, since I have decided to having castle walls and the market place, to look at the set up of a market place in Game Of Thrones and other places. I searched for pictures and found this.

I also looked for castle gate references in game and in real life. I also included some shots of the animated film Aladdin because there was a market place scene in it and I could use that as a reference of the placements and other things but obviously in a different style.

 

Previs: Rough Sketches

So these are my ideas for the previs and I have pretty much narrowed it down to something that I would actually like to do and create. I started with picking the genres and then the environments. I drew what it would roughly look like in Maya from my imagination to paper .img_3416

I added more details? but its still really rough sketches and added market stalls inside the castle gates.img_3417

This is my finished storyboard,which is also made up of really rough sketches, shows how the 30 second scene would go, what the arrangements of the objects are and  camera positions.img_3418
