Just finished this big of fan animation for one of my favourite Youtube channels and as it's done in A:M I figured I'd share it here. Also Rodney mentioned that it would be nice if my next project wasn't as scary as Breckridge so as the title of this topic suggests, this one is a bit nicer.

Nicely done.   That's a lot of work in there and you are making production look easy. 

 

Keep it up!

 

 

P.S.  I don't recall saying that but I'll take whatever credit I can get.  

Nothing against 'Breckridge' (I like it!) but 'Nicer' fits you.   :)

I would have Liked it on YouTube but you must have it turned off. Good work.

Thanks, guys, took about a week and a half. Luckily I had a fair few background resources already in my archives, probably nothing worth sharing. I mean most of the guys here could knock up a wardrobe or a desk etc quicker than it would take to download.

 

Also, it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance, Martin. You had seemingly moved on to pastures new by the time I joined the A:M community. Not that you need telling, but A:M is a great bit of software so thanks for bringing it into the world. I would probably have never gotten into 3D modelling and animation if it weren't for how easy A:M was to learn.

The niceness continues. This time I remade a YouTuber's intro in A:M. He loved it and while no guarantees may be using it in place of his old original one in a future video.
 
Here's a link to the video.

and his original intro for comparison.

The unending niceness.

Character model of "Looka" the giraffe. Another bit of Fan art for Outside Xtra. Long start short, after the game "Yooka-Laylee" was released the hosts Luke and Ellen joked that they should be a game called "Looka-Nellie" Looka being

a giraffe. So yeah.

Very cute.

 

 

The irony that I'm over in another topic posting of bullet holes and flesh wounds and you are upping the ante on niceness is not lost on me.  

We need balance so keep it up!  :)

So I made Looka and now I'm working on Nellie (Why? I have no idea) she doesn't look very feminine yet but I wanted to get the basic shape down. She's a Golden-maned Tamarin   Anyway thanks for looking.

I've been considering starting up a new YouTube channel (although to be honest things don't seem so great for content creators at the moment). Anyway, after a bit of quick research, I've discovered that nobody seems to have a channel called Game Train and as trains and games are two of my favourite things, I thought if I'm gonna do it then Game Train would be the name.

 

As such I've been working on a model to use for an intro and promo related stuff and so far I've come up with this. Bare in mind it's nowhere near finished.

Thanks Martin :)

 

The Train is coming along slowly by degrees.

Added more parts and Toon lines to the render and I think it accentuates the image without being overbearing. It still needs the actual wheel mechanism and the bogies need colouring. But it's getting there.

Cheers Rodney,

 

Been a trying couple of days, getting the wheel mechanics installed but they're in now for the most part. I've uploaded a shaded render of the wheel motion loop because it takes quite a while to render because of all the reflections I suspect, damn this train is shiny. Took all day to get everything rigged and animated and I still ended up frame-by-framing a whole whack of it. Rigging is not my forte, but it's a train, it's not like the drive wheels turn (around the Y axis) so the loop I've put together should suffice for most situations.

 

Anyway, now the engineering bit is in, anything else is pretty much window dressing. Needs head lights and pipes connecting the steam chamber to the wheel mech. More valves and all that good stuff.
