New 2013 Generalist Demo Reel

Over the past few days I have been working on my updated demo reel for this year. Now, my computer is really not the greatest, so it has taken me a few days to bang this thing out. However, I am getting a new computer with in the next couple of weeks and I am sure that once I take a few days away from looking at it I might want to change a few things. But for the moment here is what I have so far! I hope you enjoy it!

Character Update

New Knife

I know it has been a while since I have posted any new updates on my character but here is what I have been working on. At first I wanted to keep the original knife design but after a few considerations I decided to change the look of it.  There where a few factors that played into the changes that I made. First off I tired using the JSMulti Layers shader node by Jan Sandstrom and I realized that if I was to render it on any other machine besides my own it would not render correctly. So, I decided to rebuild the knife so that I could add multiple shaders of my own creation that could be rendered from any machine. The second reason that I changed the design was because even though I liked the look of the original knife I didnt think that it really fit with the character. Plus I wanted the knife to feel like a "real" knife the first one left me a little wanting.

I am pretty pleased with the way the new knife turned out but i might continue to work on the shader for the metal hilt later on down the line. But since you wont be seeing much of it up close in the film it might not truly matter.

New Character Update!

Cloak Designs

Happy New Year!!!

Starting the new year off right I am sitting at my desk with my dog at my feet, working on my film and enjoying the day off from work. I have been going back and forth on a few of the designs that I created for my characters cloak.  I am leaning towards the blue and green color schemes but I am still not entirly certain if I want to stick with it.  I really dont want to have anything flashy, but I will have to admit I am really liking the two green cloaks with the Tree of Life on it.  However for now I am going to jump back onto working on the knife just to keep moving forward with the process.

Leave a thoughts below if you want, its always great to get other views on the creative process.
