Concept Work - Character - Butterfly Hunter

So this is some basic concept work for the Butterfly Hunter, I experimented with a few ideas like a candy store owner (inspired by the 1970's version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) and grumpy, disatissfied store owners. My last design (No. 5) was an approachable old man, who looked like someone who would lure in children with his friendly demeanour.

Some minor details like the stick underneath the fat man propping him up and the pairs of eyes peering around the leaning grey guy.

Concept Work - Environment - Joke Shop Front

This is the front of my joke shop door, the shop is meant to look out of place; bright colours amidst ruins. As if the shop was just "dropped" in from somewhere. The paint on the small signs is running and the door is scratched and rusting, this probably isn't the first time this joke shop has been dropped into somewhere.

3D Animation - Maya - Toadstool

 
This is the toadstool animation, I added a few extra nodes on the timeslide to give it a more bouncy impact on the ground.

3D Animation - Maya - Chain

The chain tutorial, this one didn't quite work out properly. Some problems with the final nodes in the graph editor.

3D Animation - Maya - Pendulum

The pendulum tutorial for Maya, this one was pretty straight forward.

3D Animation - Maya - Bouncing Ball

The bouncing ball animation for Maya tutorials, quite complex with all the values needed in the channels box, this will take some practice to get the hang of.

Concept Ideas - Buyers

This is concept work for the buyer of the butterflies. I pondered whether or not it could a client or prehaps an agent for a client who wants to buy the butterflies, this ties in with the idea that the buyers are unscrupulous and care not where the merchandise comes from or even who the butterflies are.

I tried to make the poses and the costumes look snooty and rich.


Concept Ideas - Trampoline Prop

Some basic ideas to do with my trampoline, rather than having an actual trampoline I liked the idea of having some alien monster being the one to act as a trampoline.
