So first of all I'll explain what this blog is going to be about.
As some of you might know I'm a 2nd year student in digital arts and entertainment, this year I had to choose my major and I went with 3D and VFX.
Because I went with this major I also have a class called 3D prdouction, that basically is about how to render, light setups, texturing ...
Last week we had our first class and he said I have an unusual method, I like to let my students pick what they want to make for the end assignment, so by next week I want you guys to come up with an idea and present it to me.
So yup my furry side kicked in I was brainstorming about something with werewolves right away, when starting to really flesh out my idea I had this epic idea: what if I remake a part of my favorite movie ever, Van Helsing, in my opinion no werewolf can match the ones that were used there, plus, the werewolf form of Van Helsing well *blush* I think he looks kinda hot :3.
So without further ado, behold my idea:
Yup, this gif is the part of the movie that I'll be remaking.
The teacher gave me a green light yesterday to do this, he said it was the most ambitious idea of this year but that it could be done, with lots of work and effort put into it and that he would love to see me make this happen.
So short list of things I'll need to do to make this happen:
zbrush model -> add fur (maya) -> rigg the model (maya) -> animate the model (maya) -> add fur dynamics to automate the fur animation (maya) -> texture (idk what program I'll use for that) -> model background (zbrush) -> add lighting (vray) -> add background effects (fire and sparks - vray) -> render forever (vray)
So as you see I still have to do a lot in those 13 weeks, and on top of it I already get huge piles of work for my other courses, but I'm determined to make this work :3
side note: the teacher said that if I can't finish the whole thing in time I can just use a picture for the background and drop the light effects or only add those on top of the picture
