@01:29=P That part had me thinking a lot, and in order to get a deeper message, I decided to let it open again.

Sleeping Dragon

Completed: April 2010
Medium: Maya
Time: Approx 7 months
(3 visualizing, 3 animating, 1 touch ups)
Quality: 50% of original
---
Music: "Eternal Hope" by Kevin MacLeod

This is a student film I created while I was in VanArts. It was extremely fun and laborious, I usually spent at least 12 hours a day at school learning and working on my film. Surprisingly, I had fun throughout the whole process with the exception of pre-visualizing. I just couldn't come up an "acceptable" story/characters.

This is where I'd like to give a special thanks to Alannah Mayes :icon0behind0blue0eyes0: for being a great friend and helping me come up with the building stones that has become "Sleeping Dragon".

Unlike the rest of my class, I had an extremely fun time constructing the set. Though some details (like the roofing) were left out do to having time constraints, I loved it. It came up to a total of about 4 million triangles if I remember correctly, even with the roofs not being complete, luckily I was able to shrink it down to less than 2 million with some polygon deletions. On a side note, I still wish the well was in the middle of the courtyard, I think it would've brought a greater majesty to it. The reason I decided to veto the well in the middle was because it would be in the way for a lot of the shots.

The modeling and the rigging of the characters weren't a problem for me either, I understood the majority of what I was doing (though I wouldn't be able to explain what I was doing if you asked me), and got results that I was fairly happy with.

Animating, this part was even more fun! I saw animating it like choreographing a dance, with twirls and flows with each part of the body to creating something beautiful, creating life.

After school I wanted to submit this film into a few festivals, sadly a majority of them wanted me to submit films in the format of a literal "reel". Which seems like an odd thing to do if I have a digital format... So after my film was turned down for the ones I applied to, I decided to place it up here on dA, for it's first "world-wide release".

I had an incredible time at VanArts, my classmates were probably the best people I have ever met, and I hope that we'll see each other again in the future.
Here are their dA pages that I know of:

It's not *that* secret, lolz. I'll give it to anyone who asks. In fact, most of friends already knows it, so secret? Not really.
