Hi-Rez week 5

I have to go by myself on Thursday this week, because I have to go to a Taiwan opera school  with Lolo to film something, and Tuesday is the only day they are available for us to go.

Sean showed me his models for Tribes, they are awesome! I really want to get out of my comfort zoom and try something new, hopefully I get to do some modeling, zbrushing or texutring in the future.

After few weeks of interning in Hi-rez, I found something interesting : that ppl in Hi-Rez are being way too nice to us lol, especially our supervisors!XD take Sean as example, I think I've never gotten any negative feedback from him - 3 -...well, I really hope that's because I'm really doing a amazingly perfect job XD
but not because they are just too polite to correct us~ ; P Anyway, my biggest hope for this intern is to get familiar of the pipe line of game designing and get my design in a real game and make it popular!!! > .. <

Today's task: detail line drawing for male character. The only reference is the general from star craft. hmmmm~~~attractive old man~~XD  lol

Hi-Rez week 6

Seemed it's been a long time since last time we ride to intern together~~last week I have to go by myself, and the day before Leandro had to go by himself. feel better to drive with friends :)

Today Vermont came down to the "intern room" to check on us XD
he's really friendly, he told us to ask him if we have any questions or need any comment. After showing me how he sets up his hot key, we just start chatting Annick is cool, she can speak Spenish, French, plus English  lol.

Today's task coloring for two characters, been doing some test color for one character, now it's time for detail rendering!!

Hi-Rez week 4

Due to all the make-up classes, we have to move our intern day to Tuesday,
and Annick has class till 1:30 so we can only go at 2pm till 7:30  which is actually better, because any time before 7 is heavy traffic hour.

Today I decided to pay more attention to what everyone else is doing in the studio, because after meeting with Tony, I figure "to learn" should be as important as "to do" during internship, and the 1st person I should learn from is Vermont(errrrr, did I spell right?>.>) Vermont is the concept artist in Hi-rez, he's doing amazing job on designing Tribe's Universe's soldiers right now, what he does is took a rough block out of low poly model, and paint directly on top of it -口-....the finished work is really beautiful and just like a zbrushed high Poly model!!

Today's task is do a detail line painting for male character~~~
Turn out my design is a little bit over sexy for the game XD

need to tone it down a bit....lol

Hi-Rez week 3

Pizza day! Today we all got free lunch @ Hi-rez, everyone  is out of their cube (finally~) lol but still the three of us are way too shy to make a conversation with anyone else >////<

Other fun stuff besides the pizza is that I've started my 2nd project the "King" character, which should have sort of military general feeling to it....

Hi-Rez week2

Second week~officially start to work as a concept designer! The flu's finally getting better, but still hurts when I talk much or louder....T_T

Today, Sean gave me detailed information about the two characters I will be designing. Sounds to me it's the King and Queen characters from the two clans in Tribes Universe o.0" glad my 1st task is designing the main characters already!

After a while I show Sean the silhouettes I did for the "queen" character, and the feed back I got was "more sexy" XD i like that~~
