Advanced Max Rig (walk,sneak,lift)

Just finished these three for class.  Used the Max rig for 3ds Max.  Took a while to get used to the rig, but it's really good, you can do a lot of stuff with it.  Next up for the class is some facial animation and lipsynching.




You can go to the youtube page for each animation for a higher quality video option.

Veer Redesign.Final

Here are my final designs for the veer interface.  From top to bottom inspired by: movie/2001: A Space Odyssey, painting/Matisse's "Snail", music/Ochre - Me and My Variflex, and print ad/Jeep.  These specific inspirations for the designs can be found in previous posts.  I'm pretty happy with how they all came out, it was a really cool project.

Here are also some sketches done for different types of layouts for the inspirations, forgot to post them.

Veer Redesign work in progress.2

Update.2 on the Veer redesign work.  This time, for the interface design inspired by my movie choice, 2001: A Space Odyssey.  I like the way it came out, real clean.  I think the colors and white space came out well based off of the styles in the movie, as you can see in some more screens from the movie.  Now, just need to do the interface based on music, and finish up the two other interfaces in the previous post.

Veer Redesign work in progress.1

These are some early comps of redesigned layouts for based on inspirational media shown in the previous post.

This concept is based around my print ad, using some of the colors and ideas of color blends.  I like it so far, pretty clean layout.  I'm trying to make my concepts and layouts for these look like a site that I would actually want to go to and use.  To me, I think their search is the most important thing for the veer site, because people are going to the site to look for specific pictures, typefaces, or illustrations to purchase.  I'll probably have the search bar be prominent and at the top in most of my layouts, with the big banner being number 2.

This concept for veer is based on the Matisse painting titled "snail" that I chose.  I like it so far, but need to find better positioning for veer news so it doesn't feel like it's floating there.  I've got a good start on these, but need to start getting comps for the movie and song inspirations next.
