Follow the latest updates and progress on Project Heist right here.
The last couple weeks I primarily wrapped up the remaining modeling of Huginn and modeled the security guard.
This week I mainly focused on being able to render the introduction sequence of Heist without any too noticeable shading issues. There were a bunch of props that needed a first shading pass, as well as the background in the hut that needed more shading adjustments and other fixes. Other than that I experimented more with stretch maps for Einar's facial expressions. This needs to be followed up further.
This week I started populating the poselibrary with handposes for Einar. Next to that I continued animation a couple of shots including 040_0040. Next week facial poses will also be made, and more animated shots to come!
This week was all about the conveyor belt robots. These diligent little fellas work tirelessly on the battery manufacturing until Einar disrupts their daily life. I detailed the existing blocked out versions and added rigs to all of them so they can be animated.
