Update on the Street - Nearly finished

SO i'm nearly finished on modelling this street, it was taking a lot long than I thought I went with a lazy idea of copy and pasting most of the building but in a different order to show varity.

I'm happy with how it looks, I'm not bothered about the uv's for the moment because most of them wont be used. The ones that will be used will be sorted out first.

To save time I will model the subway station entrance in this scene so I can used to building around it.

The next steps for me is to add accessories like lamps, mail boxes, etc... Apply the shaders, Render it all and then create matte paintings to extend the background.

To Dan

Hey Dan,

Can you put up your new and improve script for the teaser and and can you give me confirmation of how much you have done on the characters please.

Plus could you keep this in mind for the scirpt, remember Kolade's idea of have a shadow of the centipede going throught the subway station at the beginnning of the trailer, I think we could reintroduce that now, the station will be very easy to make and the scene will be effective for the new teaser.

Science Room UVs sorted

This has taken a lot longer than first anticipated, however this was the most detailed room and all the props inside the room will be used to flesh out the other sets, e.g the General's office.

To Dan

Hey dan I changed the windows to be portrait like you said, do you prefer them like this or like they were before?

Tank Model

Including ambient occlusion pass, but no UV layout yet

I think the stylisation works quite well.

Generic Car Orthographs

Like the generic man, we should be able to use different radiators and bonnets to create some variation, and also dress these to be either cabs or police cars.

Generic Male Orthographs

Since we have a crowd scene, we'll need plenty of slight variations on this guy - I'm thinking different hats/hairstyles, moustaches on some, as well as different coloured suits

Modelling the Characters plan

As you guys know, we are a little behind and time is running out so we need to get as much done this week as possible. To spread the workload a bit all three of us must model at least one character each and then Kolade will model the remainder. What I want to know is, what character do you want to model. Personally I don't mind doing the Scientist. However it is mostly up to you Kolade. Seeing as I have the head already done for the centipede, I could finish it leaving less work for everyone. So comment back on what you guys want to do and then get cracking.

On another note Dan the Orthagraphics look wicked, however how are the car concepts coming along. Please get these all done today if you can, remember we need a tank too, possibly an army truck of some kind.

Kolade this is a shout out to you, where are you mate! We haven't heard or seen from you in over a week. Let us know where you are mate.

Science Room Update

Almost there with the modelling, just a couple of things left to flesh out the place. I'm really liking this! The room is very busy and well arranged. My only issue at the moment is, does is look like a scientist's room or an office? Maybe I will look for some objects to add to bring it back and make it look more scientific. However if this gets the greenlight then.... woop :D

Science Room Improvements and Developments

I felt the large window wasn't working so I cut it down to two small versions either side of a wall and I think it looks a lot better. Curtains will be added in time. I have added a couple of lamps and frames to flesh out the decor.

Science Lab Development

For the lab room I looked at the science room in "The Deadly Mantis".

So its just a Lab in a terrace like house and thats what I have kept in mind whilst doing it.

Heroine Orthographs

Since she's meant to be the niece of the Scientist, I tried to show they are related.  They share an underlying head structure and nose, and also there's a bit of similarity between the silhouette of her dress and his lab coat.  At the same time, her shoulders are referencing the hero's sleeves too.
