Up Here for Thinking, Down There For Dancing

Today I was supposed to have my presentation to display the work that I have done over the last term. I knew I had it on Tuesday but I wasn't sure of the time so at 9am I went down to Waverly to check. I found my name and it was under Thursday, being very tired at the time I thought that I was given the wrong day and I had longer to prepare my work. If I looked closer I would have seen that the page where I saw my name said "Review Week - Thursday April 8th".

I wasn't untill I got a text from my friend Will that I tripple checked and found out my mistake. Hopefully I can reschedule my presentation for sometime this term. It's just annoying that I made such a stupid mistake, espically after the presentation I was supposed to give for my first terms work.

Untill I have my review here is something to keep you entertained:

Avatar Almost Done

Well it's closeing down on the last few days of term and I need to have my avatar completed and in an enviroment. I also need to have a 30 second clip of my avatar from diffrent angles.

All I have left to do is give him hands, map skins and produce a rough enviroment for it to exist in. I think that I might include all the other 3d work i've done in this enviroment too, but only have the focus on my final avatar.

Here's the (almost) finished avatar:

On final thought I've decided that these are the main influences behind this avatar:

I Love The Bevel Tool

I've been doing some more work on my Avatar.

As you can see I created a body for my avatar, and I changed the head. I thought that the Predator like dreadlocks at the back looked a little ghey so they're now gone. Also after watching one of my favorite films, Return of the Jedi, I decided to take the helmet in a new direction.

I'm planning to group the shoulders and torso into one shape but leave the head with a simple link, like I had with my walker, so that I can animate with it.
