Text Animation

Cloud from braeden cox on Vimeo.

Here is my animation involving text. There were some difficulties getting what I wanted done but I 'm rather pleased how it turned out. The text is made out of two random phrases that I thought used interesting words and created imagery, at least for me.


Here are what the loops look like,and here is what they look like on the vine. The next step will be to animate them along with the growth of the vine.

More Updates for the Future

So I have been working on perfecting the vines, as I have mentioned several times in other posts. Once that task is finished I will finish up the vines and place donut loops around the bottom of the vines and make them move the at the same pace of the vines as they grow. In this group I seem to have become the overseer of the vines. I know the vines and they know me, we are one.Loops, like this one here.

Update on the Project.

So the idea for the project has changed a bit, or a lot, at least the ending. As a group we decided to go in a slightly different direction. At first we were going to use an orchid that I modeled in a tv screen that loads up and does some other things. That idea is no longer happening. Sadly the orchid is no more. So instead of working on that I have become the editor of the vines. Making sure that they don't overlap, go behind the wall, grow before they are meant to, and look smooth and finished etc. This is what I have been up since the job I was originally doing is no more.

I Forgot to Put this up, so here it is

Vines that Dont Overlap

Part of my job in this group is not only modeling but putting the finishing touches on the models. Here is a shot of the work that I have been doing. Below is a short animation of the vines. I've been going through everyone's vines and making sure that they don't over lap or go behind the wall. You can't really tell with the animation but the vines are not going through each other. I still have a few more things to fix in this area, as I now have the wall to work with.

Orchid Model

Here is the model for the final part of the animation. We decided to use an Orchid because they look menacing and beautiful at the same time. I also added a few new elements to the orchid, they usually don't have pincers coming in from the side.

Here is the first attempt at building my own armature. I meant for it to walk but it just kind of wiggles.

Toxic Array

Here is the third version of my array. I changed the shape and the colour. There were some trials to get it to match up with the sound but I think it's pretty close.

First Array Test and Still

For the next project we I was to animate an array. I made a quick and small test to see what it would look like and help get the movements down.

For my next Array video I plane to work along the same line and use a similar shape and colour. Here is a still of one of the forms it's going to take.

Paper Air

As part of a larger animation I made a segment that made a ball change into a paper airplane.
