Fantastic Voyage: Sporangia updated UV Textures

Original

Updated

For this update I have decreased the brightness of the occlusion node, and tried to paint ion highlights. I don't think it is the finished texture but its getting there, I also think the updated version looks less CG.

Fantastic Voyage: Leaf Texture Tests

I personally think the final texture shows off the leaf effectively. I have lowered the ambient occlusion node so the leaf (should) stays dark until light hits it.

Fantastic Voyage: First scene Snapshot @phil @simon



This is a screenshot from my first scene. However, during the pitch it was suggested that I try and keep the animation cartoony, does this look too CG at the moment? I'm not sure how to make this more cartoony unless it is something to do with textures?
Any feedback will be much appreciated :)

Fantastic Voyage: Pre_Vis


This is my Pre Vis, there are still a few things I havent figured out with Maya such as the gametophte morphing into the fern Above are only playblasts, within 'Playblast' lighting and glow effecst do not make a difference.

Fantastic Voyage: Concept Rethink? @Phil




I have tried to strip back the detail and really focus on the spores rather than the environment you could find a fern in. I have gone for a more graphicy style.

Fantastic Voyage: Animatic no sound



My Fantastic Voyage Animatic, no sound as of yet though I am thinking of more playful classical music, I will be looking into Vivaldi and Beethoven.

Fantastic Voyage: Second Concept Art


I have chosen to go for a more jungle theme in this concept.

Fantastic Voyage: Thumbnails 13 - 20


I think its more obvious from this set of thumbnails that I am leaning towards the plant cycles, in particular the fern cycle. I think with this set and the previous in combination I can make a visual concept, I don't think one thumbnail is screaming concept but more of a piece to my concept.

Fantastic Voyage

Fantastic Voyage: Further Research into 'Glowing'









I am using these productions as my main form of inspiration, these all had that magical and awe essence that I would like to include in my own work, I want my audience to feel captivated by the use of light. With this in hand I think the style leaves my audience range open, however, when it comes to how much information I include and what music/sound I use I think this will help me narrow down an age group.
