Texturing well underway. Here rendered in the new Animation Master v.18!! :-) (Have not had time to check out the new AO rendering mode - sounds interesting!!)

 

Looks wonderful, great texture!

Export baked, triangulated and subdivided .obj model, then import to and paint in 3Dcoat.

 

 

Tore,

 

I have been considering purchasing A:M Paint and had never heard of 3Dcoat until I viewed your post.

 

From an creative / technical workflow stand point; Why have you chosen to use 3DCoat as opposed to using A:M Paint?

...Now the texture of my little circus artist lady is finished - 'ish.

Her skirt does cause me problems though, partly because it looks wrong (both too transparent and too opaque at the same time) and partly because using transparancy and transluscense really drives up the render time...:-/

Well...experimenting ahead!

Hello ToreB

Have you considered using a transparency decal on the dress?

This should render faster and maybe give you the transparency+opaqueness you are looking for.

Attached if a very quickly thrown together example using an image of some lace for the decal.

I like it!

Your characters are great, they look to me like stop motion handmade puppets.

I like the mysterious mood of your scenes.

Those textures add a lot! Looking good!

 

I suppose a "Sprechstalmeister" is like an MC?

Tore, Do you use A:M Paint as well?

 

Your style appears to be influenced by stop motion animation? Are you also a stop motion animator?

 

Have you seen the short film of Peter and the Wolf?

Tore,

 

Very cool. The hand painted textures and the visible ball and socket joints really help sell the hand made feel.

 

Do you also go to the Stopmotionanimation and stopmotionworks websites?

 

I created a logo for stop motion animation a few years ago and I got to send a t-shirt to Ray Harryhausen for his 91st B-day.

Real nice mood to this image. For me the most powerful aspect is the handmade visual appeal.

New year, new head, new texturing!

 

 

Tore

I particularly like the way the neck tie contrasts ( clashes ? ) with the rest of the figure and it retains the signature worked texture .

good piece.

regards

simon

Has it really been two years? Wow, how time flies.

 

As strange as usual Tore. Congratulations!

I'm trying to imagine what Kafka would make of these shorts (and in particular this last one). I can't help but think he might offer a biting bit of cynicism mixed with curt commentary and utter despair for the animation art form and then subtly admit he was proud.

Sprechstallmeister ;) those are all german words but they do not really add up to something I know if ;).

 

sprechen = to talk

stall = staple... something you would put in a horse for the night

meister = Master.

 

very interesting. we would call that a sprachführer (no nothing you might think here ;)) or a zeremonienmeister.

 

sorry for reacting to something that old. of course your work is great and very amazing. ;)

 

see you

*Fuchur*

Gerald, an answer to your post - somewhat delayed!! ;-)
My guess is that "Sprechstallmeister" is an old german word that no longer is used in germany, but which has survived in danish.

"Stallmeister" has since long time ago been a profession: a person who are responsible for the wellfare of the horses in the (big) staples.

Cirkus also had/have stallmeisters, and propably there once was a situation where the cirkus director (for whatever reason) gave over the job of presenting the artists in the ring to the stallmeister, that then became a talking stallmeister: "sprechstallmeister".

"Sprechstallmeister" is still a part of modern danish language, even if the more often used term is "Cirkusdirektør" = Circus Director or Circus Manager.

The following is taken from german wiki:

Cleaning up my harddisc, I stumbled upon this small render while the project still was done in A:M. As it's a quick test there's no anti-aliasing or anything, but the A:M renderer never the less is one of the best renderers around (imho).

 

attachicon.gifcirkus.mp4

NICE!

 

(and high praise indeed about A:M's renderer, since you've been testing so many of them...good to know, now I don't have to test!)

I like the styling of that. Its within that range where you cant help but wonder if parts are CG, parts are stopmotion and if all the various elements have been composited together.
