Online Interim Review - 15/12/09Hi Dan,Looks like your moving quickly to resolve your Maya scene - which is good, and the desolate petrol station could make for a suitably urban 'unhomely'. Part of the first year experience, however, is to ensure that students create a clear 'pipeline' of creative development - the procession from thumbnails, to resolved sketches, concept art, and model. I suppose I'm a bit concerned that, in your instance, the making might be eclipsing the thinking. I assume that lighting is going to play an important part in your scene, so I would certainly expect to see some digital paintings reflecting this aspect of your 'production design'. Also, specifically, what time period is your petrol station from - and what country - avoid genericism in your models; give yourself context and detail by which to realise your environments; to know the 'where' and 'when' of your scene will ultimately precipitate your progress.Not much on here about your proposed written assignment; this aspect of your degree work is something you need to focus on with some urgency, as I don't want it becoming somekind of creative handicap. See next 2 posts for general info re. the written assignment and some hints and tips for a better result.
