January 28, 2014 : Pre-Production Modeling

As mentioned in a previous post, I have started working on a new short. There are still quite a few things that need to get done before animation can begin – most notably, a whole bunch of modeling. This includes generating a fair amount of amount of characters. Last week I cranked out some preliminary models for a few of the smaller characters. Below is a shot of one of these models in Lightwave.

I still want to tweak the colors, and obviously I need to set up the bones for the rig (hence the static pose); but I’ve liked how the characters are starting to turn out, this one in particular. This week the focus is more on the main characters, which probably means it will be slower going since they are of greater importance. The plan will also be to work on some storyboards… along with a few other things, time permitting.

Nice model. Did he time travel from the 60s? Because that’s technically possible! Forward time travel is a real thing!
