This piece is from Environment Look Development class. The animation is a comidy talking about a dog tries to get rid of a "cute" bird.
Look Development Process
When I took the project, the modeling is already done. But I found the style of the character and environment are not match very well. So I started to work on the look development of the design, texture and lighting.
A. Design development
After discussing with director and many color tests, I made some changes both on model and color pallet.
B. Texture Development
Director wants to go for relistic texture but which still fit for cartoony charactor.
This project gave me a good chance to practice look development skills. What I've learned from working on this film is getting dirctor's need and visualize it quickly.
Special thanks for Pro. Moon, Rachel Start and Daniel Furlow. :)
