Firstly, I tweaked the butler scene on the laughing jumps, I have made them just so they are more subtle and are a movement around the chest area rather than the pelvis.
On this scene, I just have to animate the props, such as the tray, the ice cube and the drink mesh. Apart from that, it is ready for rendering.
I am also animating other scenes, at the moment they are at the blocking out stages. but they will be finished as soon as possible.
Also I have blocked the investigation scene, but it is not uploaded yet.
I have been playing around with dynamics, in order to get a smoke effect for the burning paper. after fiddling around I came to something that seems to be the right track. further tweaks will be on the particle size, colour, turbulence and conserve attributes.
As I said I have been working on the matte paintings for the interior and exterior environment. I have tried to conserve the painterly style.
Outside Matte Painting
Interior Night Matte Painting
Interior Day Matte Painting
Note that this not Moon or Sun on the Matte Paintings, it is because I have created them separately, in which I will render and animate in AE.
It is all for now, more updates coming soon... Stay Tuned
