For the past couple weeks I’ve been working on a scene from my thesis, where the dog that’s been swimming around in the lake during the lake monster auditions actually transforms into a monster. I’ve been working on the character animation for my directed study and on the effects for my fx final. I recorded the super-awesome sound effects to help with the timing.
Here’s the latest pass:
In the next week, I’ll be working on completing/cleaning up the effects, as well as adding some character details like the ears/horns, scales, gills, improving the tongue & teeth and making the hand wave at the end.
Here’s an earlier pass, where the water whirlpool twists up at an opposite slant (and where I was still thinking of doing a smoke effect):
And last but not least, the version of the scene that’s currently in my animatic… you can see that I’ve expanded on it quite a bit!
Sarah, I love your work and your portfolio is so impressive. Congrats on getting that internship. Happy New Year to all!
Thanks so much Cynthia! Hope you are enjoying the new year so far!
