“…a utopian world in the form of a digital 3D animated short film titled Traces. The viewer is introduced to a fictitious extraterrestrial society identified as Alatian, which operates without the concept of personal property. Instead, resources are combined to solve common problems in an environment of mutual co-operation and support.”
Here is a test animation for the rigging of Boris. I can see that the clothing needs more work as it is going through the body mesh. Oh well, more work… not like I hate it! 🙂 Still, Blender is way more easy than Maya on this stuff.
Here is the version for Jara. Like I said in Vimeo directly,
“Here is the test of the walk cycle for Jara, the female character for the short story Traces. I like the hair simulation, it is particularly unique for a cg character. The pause on the walk is annoying and will work it out to get it smoothed. Like the steps but not the speed. Also the hands are too stiff for my liking. The cloth simulation is quite awesome. It can be better and with time it will be.”
I found this post from Sarah Cath’s Adventures very inspiring for 3D printing artists. You most go see this “IT Professional” making excellent art designs for fun. Read more below and follow the link!

I graduated last Sunday from PNCA’s low-residency program in Visual Studies. Now I can concentrate fully on my projects and my new career path.
Once my employer institution gives me green ligth, I will announce it, but I can say I am starting a path as a college professor! Never thought that to be my route. Here is to new Horizons, cheers!
So, from now until August 8 I will be engaged with finishing my MFA show and graduation, which means no time for a bath… I mean… no messing around.
After August 8 you will have a flood of visuals to look at in this portfolio of mine.
See you soon!
Here is the beginning of Boris’ illustration showing him seating on the hover chair with a foot on the floor to keep it from moving (he does not like it moving on its own). This is part of a character board I am getting ready for the MFA show coming August.
Stay tune, this will be in color down the road. One started, 6 other to start… 🙂
