YPGTTO: The Harp District Texture & Compositing Test Update

The Harp District Shot 1 Revised: Basic Composit

Details have been added to the balcony to help it feel less generic in close up and distinguish it more from the background.

YPGTTO: The Trumpet District Texture & Compositing Test

The Trumpet District Shot 1: Straight out of Maya

The Trumpet District Shot 1: Basic Composite

A start to texturing the Trumpet District. This is very much in the early stages and doesn't contain a defined sky dome yet.

Digital Sets: The Cello District Continued

The Cello District digital set is now assembled (and looks quite pretty with its textures already applied). Peta-gaye Brown (CAA Class of 2015) created the initial space and layout of the Cello set before being sent off to be textured. I then augmented the textured set to populated it some more to prepare it for the pre-vis and so on.

YPGTTO: The Harp District Texture & Compositing Test


The Harp District Shot 1:Straight from Maya
 
 The Harp District Shot 1: Basic Composite

A start to texturing the Harp District. A few tweaks may be needed, the sky and 'hero' harp in the foreground may need more detail. The hero harp railings could possibly be adjusted to help distinguish them from the background objects too.

YPGTTO: The Cello District Texture & Compositing Test

The Cello District Wide Shot: Basic Composite

The Cello District Close Shot 01: Basic Composite
 
The Cello District Close Shot 02: Basic Composite

A start to texturing the Cello District. This is somewhat straight from the concept art in terms of colours, however much of the buildings and environments a unique so colours have been repeated and reused to initially 'cover' the scene. Tweaks and a bit of a rethink in some areas will be needed to pull it together.

Trombone and Tuba: Building the Set 01

Few screenshoots from the Trombone and Tuba district. This is the first set I am putting together so the more feedback the better. I also apologize for not providing actual renders but something is not working properly in my Maya and I need to investigate. 


YPGTTO: The Cello District Sign Texture & Compositing Test

The Cello District Sign: Basic Composite


A test for the underwater Cello District. A couple of things to note, caustics (or feel of them) will be needed to complete the underwater feel. This can be achieved cheaply (both static and motion versions) using a caustics map generator. This application generates a moving caustics image sequence which can then be modified in After Effects to suit needs.
