Amarok landing his jump

Amarok now lands his jump and runs off camera for as much of the environment I have built. I will render this out tonight and I will start a run cycle which I will hopefully finish in time to render out tonight as well then put it together for hand in tomorrow.

Amarok Running in cavern Rendered

Thanks for the feedback Phil I've cut the sequence so the camera rotation happens sooner. In terms of your other pointers - 

I will work on finishing the jump sequence however there isn't too much room left for him to run seeing as I modelled only what the camera could see. There may be room for two strides in shot but that's it.

After I've done this I will hopefully have time to do a running sequence...(The renders in the icey cavern scene took roughly 4-5 hours to render so hopefully I have the time to get it done for rendering and testing on the televisions)

Anyways back to the final push! Onwards!

Making of Books have arrived

Through my own sillyness I uploaded the wrong cover and it is kind of blurry and the title doesn't fully fit on the front :( .... but other than that the inside of the book is looking great :D I'm really pleased with them.

Played around with texture and orange lighting

Playing around with lighting for environment

Had some help from Aidan and Alan today and it has really made this environment look the way I want it much like the concept! Alan suggested looking into the textures and creating lighting effects in the textures as well to make certain parts of the environment pop out i.e the dropoff of edges.

Amarok Pre-production Slide show

I have also sent off for my business cards to be made they should arrive this weekend or monday as well :D

Textured environment

I am going to put Amarok in the scene and begin animating the sequence. I will be in this week to ask Alan for some help on the lighting for this scene.

Atka Rim Light

Added a rim shader to Atka now he pops out a bit more. I also tweaked the texture as well around the eyes which I think looks a little better.

Some illustrations for Amarok - Business Card Ideas

With business cards in mind I did some illustrations of Amarok which I think would fit well on a business card. The backgrounds are obviously subject to change but was just a little exercise in bringing cheeky Amarok to life

Updating Atka from feedback

Addition of the marking under the eyes for Atka I think this will make the design work all round now.

Environment design for Action Jump shot

Trying to open up the crystal cavern environment up for more options to create an action shot to show the project off as a game project.
