'ere @ de flwr tmpl init (Adam, seriously?)

I'm running out of punny/play on word titles. :I

Anyway! Multiple amounts of progress with The Flower Temple!! :3 It's all looking so beautiful!! Every scene we make looks so pretty, but all I can really show is screenshots right now (I don't want to give away anything just yet) here are two screenies. :3

"Good house, you've been very well behaved."

"Elvis, stop eating the set!! Can we get another flower on stage please?"
Its so darn beautifuls!! :3 (Good enough to eat according to our unicorn) I cant wait till this animation is done, its going to look so amazing. Its also taught me about working with textures and setting up the network so I can use special effects x: I plan to re-use these textures in future works :3 we'll just have to see what they are. ;)

Here at the Flour Temple...

"Gawsh, now thats purty!!"

The 2nd version of the Flower Temple is completed!! :3 After conformation from Aaron our client (basically making sure he likes this one), I cracked on with rigging up the temple and quickly animated a scene of how I wanted it too open, he also added he'd like to see some of the middle of the plant shoot off and explode, leaving seeds/pollen falling from the sky. :3 So I had a go at that too, just waiting to see what he thinks of that. Meanwhile, here is a link to what I've made. I'm jolly proud of it. X)

Button button who's got the button?

Decided to play around with the buttons we scanned in for the flower temple :3 Started with copying a few random shapes from the felt we scanned then added buttons.

These quickly ended up looking like houses, so I ran with that Idea and made some pretty looking houses from the nonsense I had. :3

At this point I started concentrating more on the angular house rarther then the round one. Probably because I was very happy with the roof i'd made in the above picture, but the way I'd arranged the roof made me do this :x

I made the designs on the roof look more like suns by using colourize, I didnt intend them to be suns but they just look so much better going from yellow to red. :3 looking at this again I also love how that window turned out, asif it just exploded out of the wall.

And finally, the entire colour scheme changed so that those suns really stuck out. X) I've no idea what I'll use either of these houses for, but they can certainly count as a good few hours experimenting with textures/buttons :3 I enjoyed it anyway.

I also made a prettyful sun in the same way as the roof suns, I keep getting ideas of it spinning, but with all the bits coming off it as secondaries, the sort of thing only I would bother to do, I'll animate that some day. X)

and so ends my to be honest, longwinded blog post. I guess I'm in that sort of mood :3
