3D Preview of the Main University Set Design







What's up?  A new gallery has been posted up to show the progress a major 3D set for the upcoming episodes.  CLICK HERE for the full gallery.

Animating during the holidays sure is tough (might have something to do with the cold weather and the desire to curl up and sleep).  Episode 2's release will still be a while from now, but the tutorials promised from Episode 1 are also in production and will be released in the near future!  It will start from the basics and will dip into the animation fundamentals later on.  Lots of patience is being asked from anyone eager to see the release, but as always, I intend to make it well worth the wait~.

Harford University of Greenswoode is a prestigious private university that serves as the main location of the Cherry Weapon series.  The gallery shows the main campus quad, where we'll get to witness student life unfold.  The huge main building is the University Atrium, where the college's foot traffic is at its highest, and in front of it stands the college's largest monument.  The overall design is supposed to realistically represent a typical college campus but at the same time bring an outlandish quality to it.


3D Set Designs for Upcoming Episodes

Update!  It's been about a month since the release of the first episode, so how's the progress of the second one?

Overall, moving very slowly.  And it'll probably take a while to dish out the 3rd and 4th as well.  All the animation sprites (characters and objects) and 3D sets (the backgrounds of each scene) still require building and final touches, but once a large amount has been created, the episodes should be dished out at a quicker, more solid pace.  I would liken this to creating costumes and backdrops for a broadway show.  I mean, once they're created, all the show needs is the actors to don the costumes, stand in front of the sets, and act out their parts, which can be done over and over.  That's the overall goal of Cherry Weapon's release strategy.  Until then, there's lots to do and I appreciate the patience to those eagerly waiting.  The support is felt, and it will not go in vain.  =)

In the meantime, check out a few of 3D render samples below which will appear in scenes in Episode 2.  See the full Gallery posted in the Gallery Section.
