Birth of A Beast

So I may have had to start the Maya model again but practice makes closer to perfect and while its not there yet the first Futurist Waverley is born, many happy polygonal returns. I only have some screenshots for tonight for sleep beckons, camera movements to follow soon. Now if anyone has any idea how to begin UV mapping this beast I would be happy to hear...

HDRI's of Edinburgh Sites

Not perfect in places but very fun to complete and more location tests! The original photographs, the Nuke composed panorama and then the image lit by the photo in Maya.

Maya Model

This screen capture is for the exploring practice presentation due tomorrow, although not nearly finished this was the only way I could get a MOV export as my computer and maya have once again decided to rise up against each other. Still it is only supposed to be a snapshot in time of progress so it will do for now. I am also having issues with geometry disappearing when I instance it for duplicating the other side but once this issue is resolved or I find another way of doing it, it should not take much longer to complete the model. Hooray.

Taking Shape

The master's blog has been submitted so all updates on that have come to a least for a week. In other news the Maya model is slowly taking shape, the aim is to have it roughly modelled for the presentation on Wednesday but I fear that may be too ambitious!

Tower 2: Complete.

Now its time for the complicated parts...

Construction Continues

Futurist Waverley Model Side Tower 1 is modelled.
I had to start again due to having a corrupted Maya file, a complicated model and forgetful snap issues however it was clearly for the best and fun to remodel as I had Ciaran's good company and mocha on hand. It is also a much more manageable file and feels like it is maybe slowly getting there. Maybe....

The Science of Christmas

Advent time and so my mad advent calendar returns. This year because time is limited It is going to be pretty boring so here we go, day number 1...

Multi-Purpose Label

This was a quick thing I did for my friend Michael as a thank-you/leaving/birthday gift. It had gotten to the point where I had a lot of reasons to and really should do something but time is pretty limited. The rationale was that he has a good appreciation and knowledge of fine wines and wears a ridiculous amount of stripes. Simple but it worked pretty well...
