I've been adding finishing touches to Ellie's 6 headed, 3 winged monster for Nikki Christie's film "Wee Monsters".
If this is him finished now, i will need someone to uv map him for me because if i have to uv map one more thing, i think i might implode. Seriously, it's my kryptonite.
So fingers crossed someone takes pitty on me.
As expected, I've finally reached a standard i'm proud of, just in time for the Christmas holidays, during which i will no doubt become rusty once more and spend next semester producing terrible drawings up until the last few weeks of my university career, when i'll make another break through just in time to become a proper adult.... joy.
Some problems came up in the last few weeks with the Farmer model i made for Jamie Buchanan's film, Stupid Kow. Here are the blog posts detailing how i fixed them:

I forgot to link this yesterday, but i stuck some test textures on the wellies i modelled for the kids' room in Nikki Christie's film, Wee Monsters, to check the UV maps were ok: http://djcadmonsters.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/ellies-wellies.html The rag doll is also now UV mapped but not yet textured as i'm experimenting with her in Zbrush.
My life's heading for disaster in the form of one dissertation ruining my entire uni career, so naturally i watched an ancient episode of DW and drew from it. S01E06, Dalek. Eccleston will always be my Doctor :3 Sir, your ears and nose defy logic.

These days I'm not producing enough work that I'm proud of in every individual life drawing session for separate posts. So, here's a selection from this week and last. I might try out this new-fangled drawing over my far-too-subtle graphite drawings digitally, and try to make them cooler to look at.

A productive day was had by all, Rob O'Hara, Scott Sutherland and I were up at the Dundee College Kingsway Campus today collecting reference footage. Have a look at my pick of the videos we recorded; including final choreography and cloth tests, here: http://dancingnina.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/reference-footage-from-space.html We even had time for bloopers...
