I changed the material of the glass to have more specular highlight. Compared to the other material, it looks more like glass. I just have to play with the lighting since it seems to have too much highlight.

I modeled the water can. My attempt to give a flat look without using "cartoon shade" may work out if I test out a lot more with textures, shapes...
I am learning paint effect at this moment. We will see if I could use that method in my tree growing sc.

I am leaving for a week to Hawaii to have a wedding and get together with my family. I can't wait to see my family. I just hope that it wouldn't be so tiring. All preperations and decisions will finally paid off, I hope. I only have a little less than 5 months of time left to finish La Lune. Since I am so not logical, I would say I will die trying or be sad for another 5 years. Everyday has been so challenging in that I had to shift a gear from the design to assignments to CG courses to dealing with all kinds of occassions outside of CalArts (2 bridal showers, 2 weddings, trips to Frezno for thanksgiving, birthdays...). Yet, finally got the song that we want for a bride and groom dance. haha. The creative and technical challenges that I face everyday, I get knocked down or one more step-up. I can't be burned out yet. It is a start.

I gave Moon Su a color study of the hourglass. It is a such a joy to look at it in 3D. He added a transparent look on top of the tree and it gives dreamy look to it.
The design process is the bottle neck right now. I wish I was faster...or stop making excuses and do it!

Today, I decided to make a blog to have people see the progress of my short film. The title of the film is as "La Lune" tentatively since the moon is an important part of the film. When I put a bunch of thumb nails from my "storyboard" and made a simple animatic, it turned out to be 8 min. I am trying to find a way to make it shorter, simpler, and more interesting.
My design skill needs to develop and my drawings are rusty. I've come to realize that complicated drawing doesn't mean good rather being confusing. It all goes back to your imagination and drawings. An old man once said...
It is a just start yet hope to flurish...
