Sivus the Virus: Blocking out continuation 2






I found out that Zbrush has blender shapes so I plan on using my character sheet, with Sinus's expression on, and creating them in Zbrush to be exported into Maya~

Silent Animatic

The silent version of my animatic, its around 4 minutes long.

T.Machine Introduction essay

 This essay will be about Lord of the rings and its various influences and interpretations. 
The collections were written in 1954 by a man called John Ronald Reuel Tolkien who was a professor of English at the oxford university. Lord of the Rings can be seen to be tied with the “world wars” in terms with the coming together against one great evil, Industrialism, racial segregation, pollution and religious undertones. 
‘I wrote The Lord of the Rings because I wished “to try my hand at a really long story that would hold the attention of readers, amuse them, delight them, and at times maybe excite them or deeply move them”. As a guide I had only my own feelings for what is appealing or moving; and it has been a great pleasure (and a surprise) to find that so many other people have similar feelings’. – J.R.R.

@Alan: Sivus's eyes

Alan could I get your opinion on the matter of my virus's eyes. I'd like his eyes to change shape, in which case I'll be using the blend shapes, but I also want the eyes to be able to move from their original place i.e. if he looks up his eyes will shift to the top of his head.

My question is how best could I make the eyes move around the circumference of his head?

Sivus: new character designs

Sivus the Virus: Blocking out continuation


While doing this I realise the importance of making sure the lines in Maya are either triangles or squares, it makes for better geometry and will get rid of any "holes" that occur when exporting them into Z Brush.

Sivus the Virus: Modelling (W.I.P)

I've decided to learn how to use Zbrush for this project, and others that follow.The idea of sculpting a model you have created in Maya to add more specific and wonderful detail is enthralling.








            (The pictures on the right are my refrence pictures for an "exoskeleton" since cells dont have any...)

Despite the fact I have not finished the tutorial for Z brush yet I know for the next characters I create I will defiently make then in maya first then export it to Z brush~

(Considering this is my first piece in Z brush I'm rather excited)

Time Machine Essay Idea: Plato

After being put on the right, and then talking to father about philosophers path I got an idea  'Platos' name came up and The Ring of Gyges, mentioned in his second book, a refrence to it was Lord of the Rings and that is when it clicked.

My essay will be about Plato philosophized that good people only behave good because they can be seen, but if they had a ring that turned them invisible they would become immoral. We can see Pete Jacksons take on this by how whenever Frodo or anyone puts the ring on they seem to become evil but in fact its just they no have no consequences and in terms of Freuds' idea of our mental state, the ID side would be dominate where we steal, kill etc.

'Through the story of the ring, Republic discusses whether a typical person would be moral if he did not have to fear the consequences of his actions.'

Designs for Virus: Plauge/ Beak Doctor

I looked at some of Disneys' old villains and was aware that if in silhouette you'd mainly be able to see points,spikes, or something with sharp edges on their person. While altering my virus to have some of these attributes I remembered something which had these qualities and was quite terrifying were the masks of a Plague Doctor worn in the times of  when the 'Black Death' was epidemic.

The Black Death was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, peaking in Europe between 1348 and 1350. It is widely thought to have been an outbreak of bubonic plague caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis.

Character Development

I have already finished the 'Official Storyboard' but after having read Phils' comment, I will go over my designs (mainly for the virus) and see if I can adapt Disneys' approach to villains in its new design.

I will also create Silhouettes to see if the characters really do work and are easily recognisable.

Character notes

While talking about my W.Cell and Virus it was noted that my virus looked more attractive, after that interesting realisation I decided there is a reason why the virus is more attractive. Just like in real life when we do get sick because the body either couldn't detect the virus etc,  the body's unaware that a virus is floating around and, looking at it in terms of my story, The virus looks "beautiful" so to unknowing cells it takes them a while to realise.

~The virus's deception is helped by its beauty~

After Effects Tutorial 1

Changes I'd make would be making the first character come down a little faster.
(also the first time I exported it it it somehow went upside down, then I had to filp it making it mirrored. I'll fix that when I can)

Maya walk:: Loose Rhythm

This is not the best I have done. but considering its a first go from a rig I made specificly for this character I'm very pleased that it actually looks like walking, dispite her stiff arms. I am looking forward to improving my animation skills.
