So after some technical trouble with Maya not saving my original virus I modelled and textured, I had to go back and start from the beginning. I am hoping that it has turned out like my pervious virus but the one thing that I do like is the greeny glow it gives off. So altogether I am quiet happy with this virus.
It is nearly there, the texture is right but now just to play around with the lightening to create the right atmosphere. But at the moment I really happy with the texture because it is just like the style I picture for my animation.
Finaly after several attempts I have finally found away of texturing the blood vessel in the style I decided in the beginning of the project. Now to just play around with the texture and colour untill I am happy with the final outcome.
So here is my animatic with the changes that were suggested to me in my pitch. I have changed the perspective in act 1 from a third person perspective to the perspective of the virus itself. Also I added to my original ending, by adding a scene that would suggest that there is still parts of this virus inside and that it has not been totally destroyed. The music in this animatic still needs to be work on, in terms of the timing as it is out just a little bit but this is something I could work on with my final animation.
These are just a couple quick experiments I have done to help with find the right texture for my red blood cell. I pick four different textures and out of the four I think that the cork texture works the best out of the all. Now that I have done these experiments, I think that I am going to experiment with playing around with textures for the other parts of my animation.
During my pitch there were several suggestions about how I could improve on my animation. So thinking about what was said, I have decided that some of the suggestions, I was going to add into my original idea. As I believe that they will improve my animation as a whole. Then I decided to go and re-write my Act 1 and the end of Act 3, so here is the amended treatment with the changes.
