here is the animated balls project
Here is a video that Zbrush can make with taking you history and playing forward and by calculating a smooth path through it. Also it did the turntable, took the program like 5 mins total to both.
The idea for myself portrait was to create a decaying tired look to the piece, while showing how I feel when I am getting no sleep. To do that I used desaturated colors on myself, while the background was this bright vibrant color scheme that showed my emotion. Also I wanted to show that I am precise even while tired so that is why on top of the laser engraver, I made the watercolor pretty neat and precise. I feel like I achieved that pretty while for the background colors match the cycle of emotions that I feel when tired. Also I do fade into the background for I am not as bright as my emotion. The only thing I am not happy about is how the background bleeded into myself. I realize after doing the background what I should have done was flip the painting upside down so that the watercolor ran away from the portrait. Continue reading
Here is my self portrait mostly done I just need to do the background and maybe add some more outlines. That would be with blacks and whites to get the outlines. I enjoying watercolor now that I am doing it right. I watched some Youtube videos and read some articles about how to watercolor. I learned that you had to wet the paper first before the added the water color to it get a light color and to have spread better. Also use less paint and more water. I felt like I did pretty good job for my first time water coloring. I really enjoy doing this. Next year I will watercolor other things that I have laser cut if I have time. Thanks for giving me this idea Connie. The background is going to be inspired by Starry Night because it will give that spiral dream like state in the background. Which will help give off the idea of being tired and I am dreaming, for this what I think I look like when I am this tired. Continue reading
Where Odin and his two bothers kill the giant Ymir, and with his body created the earth. I am doing the section where the gods killed Ymir and made the earth. For they took his blood to form the water, his bones the rocks, his hair the trees, and his skin the land. This is the short version of it. For a longer synopsis of the story please go to Snorri Sturluson’s Edda. If you want a even longer idea go the website called Norse Mythology for Smart People.
Here is what I worked on this weekend. I finished redoing the comic fixed the tree issue. Also fixed the hair issue it looks now like hair turning into a tree. Also fixed the line issues. I tested watercolor over the weekend and found that the one that is cut deeper is better than the lighter one. for the color shows up better and creates nice gradient then the lighter one. I do like the green skin color but going to added more brown to it to get a more decaying look to it.
