Pixar - Behind the Scenes

After this week's classes, looking at 3D animation has a whole new appreciation and understanding.  Even though this week, we jumped right into Maya and 3D sculpture, it is important to take a step back and look at the creative aspect of things.

In this video below, we can see that it is very important to have a sculpture idea before jumping into editing software.  Coming up with a detailed plan will help immensely before jumping into programs like Maya.  It also seems like a lot of fun, watch the link below to understand what I'm talking about.

Another important part of animation is color schemes.  Color schemes can be generated from anything, such as a sweater pattern or a pattern on a blanket.  Experimenting with color expands options and also seems really fun.
