We finished in the early hours of the morning and it was so worth it! This project has been an challenging, but fun! Enjoy!
Ritisha's working on the candle FX for the cake, after the animation is done -- the flame can be added to the candles to sync up with the movement of the melting cake. Currently, she is working on steadying the flame and keeping the light consistent.
Kelly is working on animating the cake, she has added some dripping frosting and if you notice the cake is slowly squishing down. We agreed that the cake could be more exaggerated and that there should be movement on the broom.
Before we added the textures, we decided to take a look at our latest scene set up in comparison to our reference image. We made notes of anything that was missing, small improvements and some final adjustments.
Textures have begun being created! Here are some progress screenshots as they're tested on their objects and progress screenshots for scene setup. We also realized we need a quick tree trunk model for the left side of the scene. And Kelly used a wider shot from the scene to set up perspective lines and then used the lines to help set up the scene!
We completed all of our models! There are a few tweaks that need done like putting cake batter or icing on the bowls but that is an easy fix and our next focus will be finishing textures and finalizing our scene set up!
Miranda set up an asset list of all the objects within the scene so that as a group we could decide who is modeling what objects. We split them up into groups:
Group 1: The broom and the cake
Group 2: small objects (these were mainly given to Aicha, but a few were given to Miranda)
Group 3: Big assets (like furniture)
Group 4: Other (such as windows, walls, and the big objects on the walls)
We were then able to start modeling and creating our assets for our scenes!
After some deliberation for our project, we chose a shot from Sleeping Beauty the Disney animation. It's a shot where one of the fairies is looking at the cake she has made for Aurora. We chose this scene because it lent plenty of objects and challenge for us to create. Also because we will be able to make the cake wiggle and the fire also move with it, the fire being our natural phenomena.
Hi! We're the Sleeping Beauty crew, Kelly, Ritisha, Miranda, and Aicha!
