Room Test 1

This is not nearly close to being done, but I was doing some lighting/rendering/compositing tests over the last few weeks. I still need to populate the environment, add more lights, and fix some of the textures just to even be satisfied with a basic environment test. Plus, this composite is done in After Effects, but for actual thesis, I'll be using nuke. I have to decide soon whether I want to do an all 3D thesis, or stick to my live action idea. I'm not sure what to do, but in the mean time I'll keep modeling.

Noah's Train Set

I figured Noah needs a train set. (Noah is the main character for my thesis). In this render, I used a z depth pass from maya and composited in AE using the lens blur effect.

Spring Break WOOOO .. and other good things.

Well, it's Spring Break of my junior year. It's weird to think that I have one more year of college left. Time flies. It was only about a year and a half ago that I really started learning about Maya and computer arts in general. And, now I'm applying to an internship at Pixar... what?? (My dad fedexed stuff today, and I hope that they take overnight packages/ I'm very paranoid about this whole process). I feel so incredibly lucky that I found something I'm passionate about, career wise. I can't even explain my love for computer art lol. It's strange to think that I started at SVA as an illustration major, and randomly switched my major after one week. Especially being very indecisive, I can't believe I made such a spontaneous decision. But, it was one of the best, most important decisions I have ever made. (Kudos to 17 year old Sari). So, I guess as a junior working on primarily my own thesis project I am extremely happy where I am right now. It feels good to work on what you love, and not consider it work. In any case, I made a model today based on my friend's logo as a DJ. She goes by the name Bearbot, and she's awesome.
