I am very upset with Kevin (from school).

Thankfully there is Wendy being funny and Raj and Naf who understands my anger.
I was rendering my cloth when he came up behind us and looked at my screen.
The first thing he said was "Your clown looks like it came from somewhere"
....ok,so I asked him what he meant.
He said it was like some Venetian clown or something.
ok, like no, i created this character myself, basing it on the Pierrot.
I was a little cheezed off already as it is and he made it worse by saying
"wut, its not like as if you did this from scratch".
WUT, like there is a Freaking preset in Maya???? like, noooo.
Everything was created from scratch; modelled and textured carefully.
wuts him and being all judgemental like tt.

Yay!! I did 1 scene :D
started yesterday and...well, actually got all the movement done (with Naf's help) yesterday as well but tweaked it again today. and for the first time in like.......a loooonnnnggggg time,
i was the first one in the lab...kinda miss those times when i had the lab all to myself in the was....a very nice calming feeling.
The skirt was giving me a bit of a problem but after
F1-ing and reading the Maya help-line,
I got the skirt to work out :D very very very happy.

Showed Alan my first scene, I thought she twirled around too fast,
but he doesnt think yay!
i then started on my second scene and am almost done with tt
but got carried away with trying out the lighting. shame.

During Mid Crit, all of us died....this is so traumatic. I've been telling myself the whole day that I NEED TO START ANIMATING TODAY.

When I woke up in the morning, in my mind, all I had to do was Noir's shoulder controls and knee Pole Vector. Then I realized something!!! I need to do the strings!!!!!!!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

I decided not to do that yet while Alan was helping me look for tutorials online, since the strings I tried using nCloth with didnt work.

So, i embellished my stage instead.

During the weekends, I created my room. As a backdrop for Marion's POV when she's looking at Noir for the first time. I think my english is not making sense anymore right now. My eye can hardly stay open.........SIGHHHHHH. and in the process, I learnt that I cant set lighting well

With Alan's help, I did the strings. Learning from the online YouTube tutorial. Then it didnt work the way I wanted it to. Tried unsucksesfully to constraint the string to the wrist control and all.....until....RAJ to the rescue!!! and it works :D

and a BIG THANK YOU to Wayne and Diana for creating such beautiful music for me. Anyhow Hantam also can.

oh. i did my credits as well.nothing special, just the words scrolling up,
in case I dont have time to do an elaborate one, i can always slap this one on.

Yes, after a loooooooonnnnnnnnggggggggggg hiatus, i should seriously put something up here. haha.

I am now combining Marion's body to the bodice.
then, I still have to do Noir's blendshapes and get the cloth right.

I did a leg lift test thing for her nCloth skirt, its nice :)

Someone PLEEAASSEEEE inspire me

belated Christmas and Cheers for the New Year

I FINALLY figured out the UVs and mapped it somewhat properly. this took a LOT of tries and unfoldings and cutting and sewing.........omg

So yeah, notice im not showing the back of her head, cuz...its not the nicest view. haha.
the uv-ing is still kinda messy. but this was the best i could do for today.

2.December.09 Part2

Consulted Alan today.

Then he helped me with Final Gathering and all. Awesomeness

Then Raj helped me sommore with sorting out my brain and what to do next. Toooo much info for my brain!!!

Sooooo, i have to just finish modelling and UV-ing my stuff and start animating. Only later can i think about my lighting and cloth simulation and strings. yep

This was with Final Gathering, source of light from just the moon.
Super nice, but it took forever to render!!

This, i added a point light on top near the fairy lights
