Andrew A6 Doodles

My toe. From life. Started with a pencil then colored with colored pencils – matching the color as best as I can. Quite happy with this – really looking forward to the life drawing next week!

Animation tests in the A6. I will take these ideas and apply them to blender. The first cycle is a basic walk cycle – a large lift of the leg as its brought forward and the front is brought backwards.

The second animation is a simple movement of rectangles out then a flick of the end – followed by quickly bringing it back in and back at the start.

Maybe it could be a looping animation of something being dropped.

A second walk cycle. Andrew mentioned this was working better.

Blender Animation Update

I’ve been up north so n access to the internet. Fun trip away, I did have my laptop with me and worked on a little Blender.I haven’t drawn. Next week I’m spose to be back in Wellington and I’ll have a model on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Looking forward to it. I’ll like to keep the Blender learning happen this term. I had a good talk with Andrew yesterday with ideas of what I could do.


Here’s an render of recent blender animations:

The first 5 secs is the model recent work I’ve been doing. These models can be seen in another recent test. This time it’s less animated (just the camera), but UV textures have been applied. I’m still trying to understand how UV textures work. I found this video that was a great help:

Changing the mapping coordinates from Generated to UV was what I was missing. The texture was being rendered – but not correctly.

Screenshots of the animation currently:

Overall shot of my workspace. It’s a bit messy but gives me lots to work with.

This shows how I traced my drawings – lining a cube in front – then extrude, rotate, and scale. Working in a 2d plain.

These are not correctly UV mapped yet but I plan to fix them. I’m not sure where this is going but I’ll keep experimenting and learning.


Blender Animation Test

I did a scribble in Andrews a6 visual diary. It was the first time I’d used a pencil all holidays. I’ve mostly been spending my time with Blender – creating animations. I imported some of my artwork into the program and traced around it. I’d like to explore the idea of a 2d world further with the help of my artwork and blender.

Can you spot my artwork in amongst the mess?
