Yesterday, at genius hour time I turned on my computer and go to open my warrior blender, it loads and then the computer dies on me :( so I had to do the work after school, also last time I had genius hour, I thought that i had saved it, when I got home and opened blender, it was where it was two days ago. That really annoyed me, so I just redid it and played around with blender for a bit after school at home. I really need to figure out the painting for wednesday to make it look better than just a mesh and give it some colour and shading. I can make an animation after I'm done painting the mesh, which shouldn't take too long once i figure it out and after give it a skeleton and weight paint it.
I finally brought my laptop yesterday and worked on my genius hour YAY! I finished the arms and legs, so I need to start painting my character (not the kind of painting you’re thinking about). After painting It, I can give it a skeleton, which isn’t easy if you don’t know what you’re doing. After making the bones, I will need to weight paint it, so when I do the animations, they will look smooth moving. Making the character itself is easy, painting, making a skeleton, and animating is a lot harder. My character for animating, as you may know if you read my other blogs is a warrior, but I decided that it should be an animal so I made it a penguin warrior. It actually doesn’t look too bad. I just need to start painting it tomorrow and I should have nice flowing progress. I hope that I have no troubles making the skeleton and weight painting and animating, worst comes to worst is that I need to redo the skeleton at home.
I have nothing to blog about so I can't really blog because I couldn't bring my computer on Wednesday. L I will see if I can't go home on Friday and work on it extra after school. L - Sorry.
Welcome to another gh reflection! This week, so far I have made even further progress in making the warrior. I have the other characters sort of started (I made a little bit of them like the head). I was playing around in Blender a little bit yesterday, so I didn't get as far as I wished that I could have gotten, but nevertheless I still made progress, progress is fine by me if it means one step closer to the finished project. J I just need to keep on truckin' and believe that we can do it and finish the game. For me, that would be a big feat because I've always been interested in what's behind a video game and wanted to see what it is like to make one ever since I started playing games when I was a little kid, so it would mean a lot to me and I would feel very proud of myself.
yesterday Moses and I were working on our genius hour game. I was working on starting another character, a warrior. I guess I will show you what I am using for reference. I didn't make tons of progress, but I found a little thing out that made it look really cool. I only got most of the head finished on both of the characters and will start a new one on monday. I will start the archer on monday.
Hi, as you may know, Moses and I are going to make a video game together for genius hour. Moses will code the game and I will create and animate the characters, I can help him with some of the coding though. We started learning code yesterday on code.org/learn and I was downloading Blender on my laptop off of blender.org so that I could make the characters on the computer. It took a while, so we started to learn very basic coding. I already know how to model and animate, so it will be easy/hard for me to create the characters and animate them.
I achieved my goal of downloading blender on my laptop and starting to create my archer. It was an easy goal, but it was necessary to make progress towards finishing our game. The things that I did well were bringing the laptop so that I could download Blender, bringing a mouse because I personally like them more than the finger pad, Finding a reference for our characters to base off of to get an idea of what to make so I could save my progress after starting the characters. Moses and I figured out what the future characters will look like. There will be a MAGE, a warrior and an archer.
I am going to make a video game with someone else, Moses. I will make the characters and animate their actions.
i think that i will make the game on the sidelines, and i will post audio blogs of me drumming songs that are suggested. :( srry
my genius hour is going to be a video game. The game will be based around other games changed with BAaaaaaCOoooNNNN. I will be working through with it this year and for years after that. i want to take other games like "fruit Ninja" and "mega jump'". I have sort of similar ideas to those games, but they're not that much like the games at the same time. I want to ask some of my friends and classmates for some ideas. also if you have an idea, please tell me :)
What do you people want to see in my genius hour? my genius hour will be a video game, but I wonder what you want to see in it because i will be leaving links to the game as i progress with it. Please comment on what you think. :)
