I'm still sick today...I've been sick since Saterday afternoon!

Here's what I got done. I uv all the frog and finished both models. I haven't the chance to uv the hawk yet. Uving is taking longer than I had expected...But it'll be done soon.

AlsoI did'nt know if you got my render of my box yet so here's another shot of it.
Hey Andrew do you have a class you teach this week besides today? I would like to meet up with you to show you my models first hand.

Test movie

Test animation I did in flash. This was just to see what textures, colors, and my characters would look like. It's a test opening as well....

Crap Week >.O

Well talk about taking a step foward and several back. So I'm still working on my frog because while unwrapping it I realized the insided got all screwed up so here I am redoing it. >.<''

I don't thing my schedule I set up is ruined just delayed. Just more late nights to catch back up.

Here are the rest of the concept art.

Update on Story, Character Concepts, Model List, and Enviroments

Yesterday we had Jeff Paul sub for our class and he went over our stories. In short, my original script and idea is TOO grand. So, after much grumbling, I agreed. It's something I kind of always knew but didn't want to admit since I've done so much work on it already. So From yesterday on I've been cutting off any extra fat and trying to clean up on the story so that it's short and sweet, but still keeping the heart of what I had.
Doing this made me cut 2 evinorments so now I only have one and I'm down to just my main characters. I won't be needing all those extra frogs and snakes. I want for this quarter to get everything model and textured. My main characters all have to be done by midterm so I can start rigging on them, I'm going to try to get a character done per week, starting this week.
Here's a list of things to be model
Fira (cobra)
Chura (frog)
5 different module tree trunks
5 different module tree branches w/ leaves ((I was inspired by Andrea's work))
a Sky
3 different module clouds
a gravel path
8 different module pebbles/rocks
6 different module grass ((for close shots))
Far away grass ((either don with planes or fur))
3 different module vines
A far away canopy of jungle ((perhaps a plane or somthing))

If there's anything I need to add just tell me.
Here are some character concepts. They are almost completely finalized in their design the only one that needs more work is the hawk and the butterfly. ((Butterfly needs some design for it's wings))
