In the first year the 3rd project was about the use of space and learning simple animation through the process of anamorphosis. The original project worked well in terms of animation the illusion but the overall model and texturing abilities are of a low standard, acceptable for the first year then perhaps, but I have gone back and remodeled and textured the environment, with a few modifications to the animation.

The Improved Scene:

In the improved scene I have so far paid less attention to the anamorphosis stage and instead concentrated on the animation and texturing of the book itself. The animorphosis stage is my next priority.

Digital Environment

The first project I under took was recreating the digital enironment scene from the first year. With a better knowledge base of what I can do in Maya and a fuller understanding of producing an effective scene it was a good project to start with for making improvments.

The Original Scene:

This project was influenced the liveing pictures by Gregory Crewdson. This Image was surposed to provke a primale fear of the plant life taking over a modern, civilised, and very human setting.

The improved scene works better to provoke that desired mysterious effect with a more finalised location.
