I haven’t touched hair in Maya in about a year and a half, so working with it was very refreshing and new to me. Since I’m primarily cloth based, it was a struggle to figure out the basics of hair again, but I finally got something to work.
Here is the only progress of my film which I will be updating you guys with- I want to show the cloth simulations when they are finished products!
A little run down of my film~ It’s about an Arab girl named Saffiya, who is trying to break through the strict structures of an Islamic society which she is living under, focusing on male dominance and not having the proper freedom to express herself. This is a very personal and touching subject matter to me.
Enjoy this four second video that took six hours to render!
i made a stop motion video while in paris
check it out!
Experimenting with making a car explode… in Maya
For my Advanced VFX class.
My professor handed me a rig of a dude who’s kicking some gnarly butt and told me that he couldn’t be naked (obviously), so I simulated some clothes onto him (based off Middle Eastern and Indian swag).
PS: There is music.
My second assignment for my Advanced VFX class was the put clothes onto an animated character and simulate them.
I added on some music and a layout of her dancing somewhere in the Middle East.
I’m going to add in some particles (sand) near her feet over the summer so stay tuned for that!
Updated the smoke on my “Flight” scene.
For my Advanced VFX class, I had to recreate a scene from the movie, “Flight”.
Still updating the smoke, but I’m happy with the overall product.
A compilation of the works which you see below, which were worked on during my Fall semester of 2012 in my first VFX class.
I decided to experiment with making a camp fire in Maya using dynamics.
I attempted to take my simulated hair (hopefully you all saw my last video because this hair is from that scene), and imported that into my ninja scene, where I proceeded to input that on to the ninja’s head. For a first attempt with hair simulation, I’m very happy with it.
AND SHE’S NOT BALD!
