So here are my attempts at one of the main characters, the father. He is a college professor and researcher. This is not meant to be photo real, these characters are hopefully meant to be similar to a pixar type film. Even they have a tough time pulling off 'real' and I cannot hope to set the bar that high, but I do hope to beat them in art and style, which will take a LOT of work.
I am an amateur filmmaker and back in the day I have produced two feature live action films. It is my hope over the coming years to produce (in my spare time) another. Due to my lack of resources I will be using mainly open source software and this film will be entirely computer animated. The background to this blog is one of the sets I designed in blender 3d and rendered in luxrender. I hope to slowly add more and more artwork until I can develop the entire movie. Up to this point I have been using blenderartists.org and luxrender.net works in progress forums, but I decided to create this blog so I can coalesce all of the art of this project in one location. I also hope I can use this blog as a sounding board so others can give their opinion (please be tough). This project will not be successful unless I adhere to the absolute highest artistic standards. I also want to be up front and state that this is a Christian film. I am a Christian and one of the things I learned about my first two films is that if you are not passionate about the content of the film you may as well not do it. That being said I do not mean in any way to slight other religions or beliefs (although the content of the film may do so, I have absolutely no intention of angering opposing opinions I merely want to articulate my own) and I encourage all input (preferably constructive). I humbly thank you for reading and hope you enjoy this blog.
