It’s not often i get the chance to go through the whole process of designing and creating an entire bust just for the craic. The students on the BA Animation course were asked to design and create an Alien Head. From concept sketching and painting to sculpting and on to 3d modelling and digital sculpt and render. Anyway I decided I’d join them…. I’ll add to this as I go.

This is the first draft of a showreel showing a collection of some of the work done by the students at LYIT HDip 3d Modelling and Animation. This is 3 months in and already they are producing some pretty impressive work. Be interesting to see what they come up with for their final projects in June! They have also been working with some Augmented Reality which isn’t displayed here. I worked with what I had to hand!
SOOoo the students of the “3d Modelling and Animation” course at LYIT took part in a clay modelling workshop for the day today. The characters were designed by the students as part of their “Concept art for 3d” Module and created over the course of around 5 hours today. For all but one this was their first attempt at modelling in clay. Great to see a character generating from ideation through to a clay sculpture.
