The Doodler Update: Week 21
With Week 21 well underway Sammy Butler is the sole polydoodler at base camp while Polydoodle Chrissie and Stitch are away in Prague checking out the sights (please refer to the Drop Shop for Photo’s). As you can see though Sammy is not capable of disappointing our followers (check out the video above). We are currently in the process of figuring out how we want our characters to move and operate now that we are closely approaching the animation phase.
Sammy has also begun texturing our characters using a variety of techniques (including traditional pastilles) Benjamin as now pretty much ready to go after a high speed rigging effort from Stitch before he left. Rigging Barnabas will be started by Sammy until Stitch comes back so there is no halt to the workflow. There is not much further to go but team Polydoodle is committed and is looking forward to the final hurdle.
Above you can see some image highlights from our blog for this week (week 21). If you wish to see the posts themselves please visit the Polydoodle Pictures studio blog.
Tutorial’s are occurring less as we begin to commit to our final approaches there is less and less to discuss with Alan or Phil. However, this week it is mainly because Stitch and Chrissie are absent in Prague. Never the less Stitch did managed to dig out a tutorial for Week 18 which he forgot to post. We discuss time frames with Alan particularly in regard to rendering duration and timescale for each of our respective goals.
