Gone nuts for nuts for nuts (Part 3)

No more nuts this time round, I promise! But I’m lazy to think of an appropriate title so…

VC3A – Invitation, Poster, Book Cover

Awesome advice which I’ve been neglecting to follow, much to my regret.

I didn’t put in quite as much effort as compared to the previous term because of the increased workload and other commitments. Ahem, that’s hardly a good excuse. Anyway, typography and colours were this term’s focus, hence the lack of images. I also tried going for a vastly different style from the cutesy kind I usually doodle (the invitation especially).

Was contemplating between The Matrix Trilogy and BTTF for the series covers but settled on the latter because it’s 2015! Need I say more??? But I feel like I have let Steven Spielberg and myself down. It was pretty last minute work and the lack of any DeLoreans to begin with is just… disappointing.

In case you are wondering, the pattern is made of the flux capacitor (It’s what makes time travel possible!) graphic. Okay enough babbling, let’s move on.

This was the first project I completed! It’s a real shop, mind you, I only revamped the pages, edited some of the content and replaced some photos here and there. The pretty lady on the banner of the home page is my sis-in-law!

VC4A – Magazine (four pages + cover)

I was so full of hype upon hearing the news that we were to design a magazine that I asked Matthew if I could, instead of only doing four pages plus cover (which cannot be bound into a book), design an entire magazine! He said no much to my initial dismay but gradual relief as the deadlines ticked nearer and I still hadn’t completed any of my projects, LOL.

Rule of Thumb: Never attempt to bite off more than you can chew.

Anyway, I’m so glad I was kiasu enough to consult my multimedia lecturer on this project (LOL). The photo montage on the last page was a product of his suggestion!

M3B – 3D makes my heart go ping pong piang

This module is called ‘3D Animation’ but the second word remained irrelevant even after ten weeks (kekeke). We were to model, texture and light a scene then render out images from four different angles instead. I never particularly enjoyed my Thursdays for the past ten weeks because of MAYA. The fact that it is a powerful tool remains certain, but ε¦ˆε‘€! (pun intended) the sheer abundance of buttons and stuff in this software was daunting enough 😦

So I left this module to the very last, choosing to finish all my other projects first before finally plucking up enough courage to start on this a week before submission. Didn’t want to jeopardize my other modules you see? Anyway, I think I managed pretty decently:

Couldn’t have done it without Mike Hermes!

My christmas tree didn’t have any decorations other than the star because my Fujitsu was lagging so badly (takes 2 minutes to rotate / zoom in) after its addition that I had to forgo the idea. Lights were also a tad too yellowish for my taste but I couldn’t change it due to the crazy lag (it was a miracle I even manage to render anything) So when Min commented “Wa shiok, super warm”, I replied, “Yalor, because it’s winter outside!” in defense :p

Anyway, if you’re a student, you can get MAYA for free and there are tonnes of YouTube tutorials teaching you how to model various stuff (I definitely recommend Mike Hermes!!!). So do give it a try if you’re interested!

Am feeling a little lost now that I’m suddenly quite free. It’s only temporary though, my to-do list remains as unending as always! πŸ™‚
