Edgar the Janitor

These are model sheets are a playblast of a model.

Meet Edgar the Janitor, who is in his mid 70's and has worked as a janitor at the same elementary school for over 40 years. He enjoys his job and likes the children. Even though he has a stern look, he has a gentle heart. He always brings candy with him and shares it with the children that pass him by. Egar also likes to have everything squeaky clean and suffers from mild OCD. When overcome with OCD, he becomes a cranky old man, but as soon as things are cleaned up, he returns back to his kind personality.

Spoznajte Edgarja, hisnika, v svojih 70-ih letih. Ze vec kot 40 let dela kot hisnik v isti osnovni soli. V svoji sluzbi uziva in ima rad otroke. Ceprav ima oster pogled, ima zelo nezno srce. S seboj vedno prinese kaksne bonbone in jih deli z otroki, ki gredo mimo njega. Prav tako ima rad vse blescece cisto in trpi za obsesivno-kompulzivno motnjo. Ce se motnji prepusti (kadar otroci umazejo hodnik ali kaj podobnega), postane siten stari dedek. Takoj, ko pa so stvari spet ciste, se spremeni nazaj v tistega prijaznega hisnika, ki ga vsi poznajo.

Angry employee

Have you ever worked at a place where you were asked to do something and you really, really worked hard at it? Then when it was almost finished, you were told that it's not needed or a drastic change was made to the order? Unfortunately for this young man, he is experiencing something like that in front of you own eyes...

Ste že kdaj delali v pisarni kjer so vas prosili, da nekaj naredite in ste se res, res za to potrudili? Potem, ko ste pa skoraj dokončali, pa so vam povedali, da tega ne potrebujejo več ali pa je bila dodana naročilu drastična sprememba? Na žalost tega mladeniča, on izkuša ravno to pred vašimi lastnimi očmi...

P.S. This is basically just a test to see how the animation would go. To je trenutno samo test za potek animacije.

Bus Stop Lady

When you are at a bus stop, what do you do? Listen to your iPod, watch other people and cars pass you by, maybe talk to someone on the phone, or even eat? Well, this heavier lady has a small snack of a greasy burger that unfortunately falls out of her hand... But she adores hamburgers, so she needs to get it... How? Watch the video.

Ko čakaš na avtobusni postaji, kaj počneš? Mogoče poslušaš svoj iPod, opazuješ mimoidoče ljudi in avtomobile, morda se s kom pogovarjaš po telefonu, ali pa celo ješ? No, ta nekoliko bolj zaobljena gospa ima za svoj prigrizek oljnat hamburger, ki ji na žalost pade na tla... Ampak ona obožuje hamburgerje, torej ga mora pobrati... Kako? Poglej video.

P.S. This is not finished yet, it still has to be fixed... To še ni dokončano, potrebnih je še nekoliko popravkov.

Muca Copatarica ~ Cat Shoemaker

For our final we had to demonstrate that we know how to rig our characters. There was no set theme, so we could do whatever we wanted.
I chose to do something that reminds me of home; a story about a Cat Shoemaker. Instead of making a book illustration, I brought Cat to life.
I short synopsis of a story for those who are not familiar with it:
Children from Little Village (Mala vas) never put their shoes (sleepers) away. Their moms would warn them that Muca Copatarica would take them, but children would not obey. One night Muca really took them, so the following day the children left to search for her home. They went into the forest where they saw a white house with a red rooftop, and on the door was a sign: Muca Copatarica. They knocked on the door and Muca invited them in. Her house was all cleaned up and everything was in order. Even the shoes were neatly put on shelves, all in different colours, all patched up. Children found their shoes and happily walked back home.

Kdo ne pozna zgodbe o Muci Copatarici? Za svoj koncni filmcek smo morali demonstrirati, da znamo uporabljati "rigging." Tema je bila karkoli in lahko smo naredili kar smo zeleli.
Jaz sem se odlocila, da bom naredila nekaj kar me spominja na dom, nekaj domacega. Izbrala sem zgodbo o Muci Copatarici in namesto ilustracije izdelala zivo Muco.

Lego Man in Action

My first try at animating in Maya. Used the basic move, scale, rotate tools and key frames.

The bug! ~Jantar

As a final presentation in my Introduction to 3D class, we had to create a bug. Any kind of a bug.
Because I went to a natural museum a little before the assignment was given to us where I saw many ambers with tiny bugs in them, I decided that it would be a cool idea to make an amber as my final project.
~
Za svojo koncno predstavidev v mojem razredu "predstavitev v 3D" smo morali ustvariti insekt ali hrosca.
Malo preden nam je bila dana koncna naloga sem sla v naravni muzej kjer sem videla ogromno jantarjev z malimi insekti. Ravno zaradi tega sem se odlocila, da bi bila kar zanimiva ideja, ce bi lahko sama ustvarila jantar za svoj koncni izdelek.
