Another render

Here's another rendered image- this time of one of the sushi plates. I think I've nailed down that background texture, and just hint at the restaurant space through the toon outlines and occlusion. We'll see once I put all the elements together.

Here's some blocking for the first 20 seconds or so

FX test

So there's two teeny shots that needs effects in this. One is when the tourist dunks sushi in soy sauce. I was playing around with it today, and am pretty happy with the rough results. Sure it looks a little thicker than it should, and the liquid reacts too early, but those are just easy tweek fixes.

new animatic

Here's an updated animatic with my actual characters in place. There's a few places in the middle that I think go a little too fast, but seeing as it's already over two minutes, I'm not terribly eager to add any more time. I'm going to head into animation, and maybe adjust the timing a little bit there.

whelp, the title says it all. I'm re-rigging at least the tourist rig. Serves me right for using an auto-rig- it just can't do everything I want. It will probably just easier to rig it from scratch that try to modify the rig that's there. Fortunately I haven't actually started animating yet, so I won't lose anything. Hopefully the other two rigs will be okay, but I might end up re-doing the chef, too. We'll see.

I'm back

I recently finished work on a few projects at Fisher Price, so it's back to work on thesis. Here's a little rendering test.
And here's the node network for anyone who's interested.
