This summer I plan on developing my skills for environments and set pieces. This is a quick broken column test for a potential project I'm planning on the idea of discovering Atlantis.
For those interested, to get this marble texture, it's an Arnold Surface shader with the Clay preset merged with a yellow colour on top. The specular is turned up slightly for that new shiny marble effect.

Updated Pre-viz which now includes text synced to the voiceovers. Main question cards are missing - font will be moved in the final version to stop the overlap of text and models. (I'm aware the quality is low but this was made using old playblasts to test the final look and any spelling errors will be remedied too)

The original jetpack man I modelled was very rushed and although it closely resembled the orthographs, it was not fit for purpose. I have spent time remodelling and creating a better model. Although it strays slightly from the original image, I think this visually works a lot better.
This is the model from the front and a diagonal view in grey, the white paper texture and finally with an outline test.

In a bid to make the models look more 'hand-drawn' with choppy outlines, I've been experimenting with toon outliner even more. The car looks absolutely fantastic with this choppy outline but on the other models, I'm not so sure. The normal outline works very well but I'm unsure if this adds to the look or ruins the effect. I might tweak this outline further on individual models to try and perfect it.

While waiting for some of my shots to render, I've had some 'spare' time to continue updating and working on the Art Of. I've updated Chapter 1 with a more recent render rather than a render dating back to the minor project. Chapter 2 is pretty much solidified now although I'm not entirely happy with the layout of the pages within the chapter so some changes might be made later on. Chapter 3 is a work in progress. It's set up ready to go but the layout of my Art Of is pretty fluid currently so eventually there might not even be a Chapter 3 but a Chapter 4 could also be on its way - who knows!
