What kind of Anim8or are you?
« on: May 01, 2008, 08:27:38 am »

Some of you from the old forums may remember this post that I made under my old alias of "Sega".

What kind of Anim8or are you?
This means what do you specialise in modeling? Environments? Buildings? Spaceships?

Personally, I love to model airliners like the Boeing 747-400 and I also enjoy building environments with water. Water is very challenging and fun to get it looking perfect.

So what else do we, here in the Anim8or community, like to model?

colclough: Yup, me too.  It's relatively easy to make, say, a spaceship that looks really cool, but I am yet to see anybody, on any platform, make a CG human that actually looks like a human.  Sure, Beowulf comes close, but they still look artificial.  My personal interests tend more towards machinery and technology than plants and animals anyway, so I suppose my animation follows suit.

My modelling background is parametric (latheing, extruding, etc) and this whole wireframe modelling caper is kinda new to me.  Seems to me that there is a whole art just in edgelooping.  I also have little interest in gaming, so my models are built more for accuracy than low poly.

I feel I'm mainly a modeler at this point, though I aspire to become an animator as well.  Mainly, I tend to model organic things using subdivision modeling and focusing on edge loops.  My style is mostly stylized cartoons, but that doesn't limit them to simple (as it never should.)  I've also gotten into a good deal of lowpoly modeling in the past.

I do anything I can, I try to present myself with new challenges everyday and find a new way to do it,i will do anything from block modeling, to high poly organics.and I try to take it from object to scene, instead of focusing on one.

I'll try my hand at any modeling technique as long as it produces the object that I want in an animation for that is my goal, making animated stories.

We have quite a diverse range of Anim8ors here, I see! :)

You know what would be neat? Like, an Anim8or party! All of us, a high powered computer lab, access to unlimited resources (food/drink/textures etc) and 24 hours to Anim8 something really cool! :D

it'd have to be using Anim8or 0.97 Stable Release, of course, so we could do ART renders without any beta/preview bugs.  wouldn't be much of a party if things kept crashing on us!
