Elizabethan style 3d assets

I   have now completed the modelling of the Library, globe, desk and stool, the reseach I did for the models was on the Elizabethan era. I looked at different periods in time and the Elizabethan Period caught my eye as being the most interesting. the library wont feature fully in this animation just one corner, so I may come back to finish this off for another project in the future

storybook test

Working with the textures and Tea-stained effects I created a back drop and then went back in to reduce the side of the mesh on the trees. Animating them to grow out of the book once the page turns. need to introduce the bushes, a sun, clouds and then design the light for the shadows.

Red Tree tests

I   want to keep it looking quite papery and resisting the urge to go all out with paint effects for the look and animation. I built this tree using just a simple poly plane and textured in photoshop using a Tea-stained effects. Upon doing this I really like the old Tea-Stained effect for the textures and may use this throughout the book. I am currently playing around with making similar assets like a sun, moon, bushes and clouds.

For my final year at university I have taken on the task of producing an animated music video for musician Heg Doughty

The song Red is based on the well known story of Little Red Riding Hood. But everything is not as it seems in these woods as Little Red and The Wolf let fear get the better of them.

In collaboration with Heg we have decided to produce a 3D pop up book style animation to portray the story.

Little Red Playblast from Stuart Taylor on Vimeo.

This is a quick playblast to how to the opening of the song may start.
