Silverback Test #2

I was recently testing at Silverback, using Cinema 4d, and with Willie's help produced this image. The table, though not its contents, and the statues are courtesy of Silverback. The rest is my work.

This scene turned out really nicely, and Willie taught me a lot of things in a very short amount of time. He's an interesting guy who's really in love with his craft - I have a different idea of how to light scenes to bring out a bit more "magic" now.

Here's a real link to that image:

Silverback Gig

... and the (almost final) reveal...
It's not quite finished, as I need to add a lot more little details, but since it's just about end of day Thursday this is what I sent Silverback.
Fingers, toes, eyes crossed for good luck. =)

Still coming along...

I'm going to take a break for an hour or two, but it's coming along nicely.

Busy busy

Hey hey,

It's been a whirl of life since I last posted. Worked as a roto artist for Hatch Post for a month and a half. Good work, doing roto and tracking a bit. I liked it a lot there; the people rule. Contract is over, however, and it's time to move on. Hence I'm working on a test for Silverback.

I've put a little under 20 hours into it so far, counting just blocking it out for hours in the beginning. Since the test is a Chinese meat market I'm modeling it after the ones I actually went to, but trying to make it look a bit dreamier. Whether or not it gets accepted, this has been a fun project, but I really would need more time to complete it to my satisfaction. 6 days, including Saturday with the power out, isn't enough time to really dig into it.
