Butch Auntie: Creating Fog/Mist

I created this type of mist effect using turbulence displace in After Effects.

This effect is more swirling compared to the last, and I created it using the Fractal Noise settings in After Effects.

Butch Auntie: Creating Stars

For the first task of my internship at Butch Auntie I looked at creating stars in Maya, which I firstly created by using the space brush presets and creating stars over my scene at different depths. This is just a test to see if I could create the feeling of moving upwards through the stars and if this method would work well.

ADAPTATION B: Reflective Statement

Adaptation B: Reflective Statement
Overall I think this project went well, even though it has aspects that could have gone different and better. I have learnt a lot in terms of softwares like Maya and Mudbox, and I feel my knowledge on techniques inside Maya has expanded. Although I started in Maya early on in the project, I should have carried on and not put off my Cgi model until later, which I realised I could have made a more detailed and fully rigged model if I had not left it until later. I realised that I should balance my work better and ask for feedback more often so that I can take my work in the best direction and that tutors and I know what is going on in my project. Overall I am happy with my outcome, although I would have liked to have done a little more in terms of rigging and animating.
I learnt that I need to work on my blogging and updating my work online, so that it is more clear what I am doing, what I am working on and when, so that I can get feedback earlier. Also I've learnt that I need to be more professional in terms of writing on my posts and describing what I am doing, not just posting images, so that anybody who sees my posts will get what it is about.
