fish.

We just finished our Salmon project in XSI. The project entailed modeling and texturing a salmon (or any kind of fish really), rigging it, then animating it using sin waves and constraining it to a path. We also got to play around with particle systems for the bubbles, and volume effects if we wanted to. :)

Group Environment

Our group environment project was a Ski Lodge. Everyone modeled and textured pieces of the Lodge and then pulled it all together. I modeled the fireplace, pokers, windows along the side and the mugs. Then each of us took a copy of the scene and found a camera angle we liked, rearranged the props and lit it to our individual taste. This is still in progress (and hopefully it's not tooooo dark on your monitors).
