Thanks to a friend suggesting to me that I try out animation, I have started planning a new project. The ideas are still in the development stage, but I’m excited to start working on something completely new and different from anything I’ve done before.
A few weeks ago, on a trip to Louisville, I got an idea to start a project based on nighttime photography and my interest in film noir. I am working on a website for this project right now. As my idea grew, I wanted to incorporate some other elements to tell stories. As I have talked about this with a friend, he encouraged me to try putting together the stories with an animation program.
For about a week, I’ve been learning the Daz 3D program. It is a nice free 3D animation program. Right now, I’m using it for creating still and playing with understanding all that it can do.
This is a character I made, rendered out to a pgn file then in Photoshop added a background from a photograph of mine.
