Yes, It's out!

Hi!

My exam results just came out yesterday! I'm amazed that I've got distinction for the two 3d modules (3d techniques and advanced 3d techniques)! I'm also still happy with achieving A for Advanced 2d animation :D Overall my GPA is still 4.0. I can't believe that i had maintained my GPA for the past one and a half year. XD

There'll be a group meeting for my group's fyp! hope to have some snapshot of our meeting later :)

Daily Night Sketch

I usually loved sketching at night. I don't know why. But i'm always free at nights, so that's probably why my brain thinks better when i draw at night.

And last night i drew a guy. My sister laughed at portrait because she felt he has this annoying "attitude" look on his face. I told her I'm going to introduce this guy to my father as his future son-in-law. XD

^ my first sketchy version


^ and my cleaned up version

Awww, he's seriously a bad boy, don't you think? :P

New blog header!

Yes, finally the new blog header is up! I've been wanting to change the header for quite a long time, but finally i had an inspiration to do this header! :D

So basically, i took an old drawing from my sketchbook and had it traced out in Flash. Spend like two to three hours to design this piece in Photoshop after that :)

The original chicken:



The coloured versions and the coloured traced versions:





And the background design. I used a variety of different brushes and the glow effects in Photoshop to get the effects i want:



and the end product of the whole design! TADAAA~!

Introducing my hobby into Blogger!

Being in animation, drawing became a hobby that i would do almost every single day. It's like it's already become a part of my life. But there's another hobby that i would do when i get a little bored with the usual routine i have, and it's photography.

It has been my hobby for quite a long time but i don't always do it because firstly,i don't own a really good camera to snap pictures, and secondly, drawing is my number one hobby, and photography is like the second or even the third and i don't usually do it unless i'm seriously bored. The thing is when i'm bored, inspiration usually comes, and that's when sometimes when i get to imagine things better and see things in a different light. Things will become very beautiful and you'll just learn to appreciate it, and you can't resist taking pictures of it. So basically i will take pictures of random things i see, and rarely they mean anything! :)

But it's just a hobby and i would really love to share it here!


^A photo taken many years ago. I did Art in secondary school and while mixing my paint, i spot a face-like mixture in my palette.

^I realise how much the glasses resemble a night city, and decided to snap it XD

^my new socks

^A very nice ship sailing at the Avenue of Stars, Hong Kong

^My first time drinking McCafe cappuccino :)

^I manage to take a photo of sunrise while camping out at the beach. I woke up specially early to take this XD

The Boy In The Bubble Teaser Trailer

Hello again guys!

For those who are a fan of Harry potter... or Severus Snape or even Alan Rickman, this teaser might interest you.




This story is about Rupert, a ten year old boy, falls hopelessly in love for the first time. When it all goes terribly wrong, he wishes never to experience heartache again. Turning to a book of magic, he invokes a spell to shield him from emotion forever.

I don't think it will be out in theaters, but this is something that is being shown in this year's film festival i think.

Doodles!

Hi everyone!

As promised, i will be updating my works more often now, since it's school holidays. Anyway, i've just logged into my school site and my exam results are not released yet. I'm really anxious to know my results. Hopefully i maintained my grades and gpa points :)

I've gotten abit sidetracked from what i wanted to post about. so, i have been drawing hell alot now and now i'm almost finishing my fourth sketchbook! :) Most of them consist of my collection of human drawings. I'm kind of lousy at human proportions and kept aside one sketchbook specially to improve my human drawings. So these are some of my human drawings. I've improved a little abit, and still got my body proportion wrong at times. and yeah, one of them was an old work which i intended to colour, but in the end decided to improve on the perspective and the character itself. :)


^She's my western superhero. XD Alot of people like to ask me why you like to draw your characters with Afro hair? My answer will always be the same. I like it because it's different from my other characters. Usually characters with Afro hair shows the personality i have. :)


^I watched too much cosplay, and came up with this! :)



^My handsome prince. My guy. I want marry him! ^_^



^This girl has my blur look! :D



^This is my favourite of all! My sexy girl from my holy sketchbook! Wendy says it look abit fat like her. -_- Fat is beautiful! :D



^one of my old animation layout. :) I redraw the perspective and make some changes on the proportion of the female character. It looks much better, I've start colouring now... but not just done yet!


So that's basically all! :)

Birthday?!

Officially 19 yesterday! XD

A big thank you for all the birthday wishes from my friends, classmates and friends from overseas! Really apreciate it! I thought that i'm going to spend a quiet birthday this year, but it was full of suprises! :D

just a short update on my Rapunzel film: i was in school for a while yesterday to check on my group members' fyp part. The outlining and colouring of background scene is going quite well. I knew Rosanne and Liza will do well for this part. and, this remind me that I should start tackling my in-between animation for all 26 scenes of the film :3

and here's a snapshot of the birthday gifts i had :D


^Chocolate from my youngest sister! :D




^This is from my good friend, Wendy! :D




^This was from my second younger sister :D my favourite character! Meowww~





^Seri surprised me with a slice of super thick chocolate coffee cake along with my favourite chocolate ice blended drink from coffee bean! :)





^And my parents surprised me with another chocolate cake! :D Loved the ferrero rocher on my cake! <3

Thank you, once again, to all my friends, classmates and family for the birthday wishes! i really appreciate it. :D

Big loves,

Trying out Ndynamics in maya 2010

Hi!

Been quite a while since i've updated! :D Yes, i'm on school holiday finally, and it seems i finally had proper holidays. you know what i mean! hehee! ;D

By the way, I tried something new during the holidays, other than drawing, of course. No one taught me this in school because it's not in our syallabus. We're suppose to learn only the basic stuffs in ITE, but i like to add some spice up in my life by trying something new. :D so i decided to learn abit or two about Ncloth in Maya.

Now the strange thing is, probably there's a lot of people who couldn't find ncloth in the newer versions of maya. It's actually in Ndyamic in the menu sets. :D

and to those people who really need help in using Ncloth in Ndyanamic, here's a short and simple tutorial about ncloth that i learn from: http://cg.tutsplus.com/tutorials/autodesk-maya/create-awesome-cloth-simulations-using-ndynamics-in-maya/

Wendy and Friends Rocks! :D

Bean character turnaround :D

Modelling my own character during the weekends. :D Bean is an elf character from my imagination. He's a grouchy guy but he can be nice to people who deserves his kindness. I was thinking of modelling some props to show he's a sort of magical elf XD

here's the character turnaround:

azianah :D
