In this post I wanted to show you a Nabolos, a squat little alien creature that populates the world of Nabulu .
This particular Nabolos will be the main character of our World of Nabulu project. The modelling and rigging was done in Autodesk Maya and the texturing was done in Mudbox.
We wanted to give our alien a wet skin texture, a bit like a snail or a slug, to do that we created a specular paint layer, took a stamp and painted over the head and hands.
We also created a complete facial rig for this character so he can smile, look sad, angry, cruel, crazy…
The next big challenge for our project is too duplicate this Nabolos character and make different variations of him so we can then make our Nabolos town look more lively and real.
That’s it for now, come back soon to see how the Nabolos town will look, what space ships the Nabolos will fly in and what adventures our alien characters will get in as they travel the Nabulu world !!! 🙂
Hello everyone and welcome back yet again on BlackthornProd ! 🙂
Today I want to share with you BIG news, now that Halloween is over and our (Halloween projects) our completed BlackthornProd has planned out a massive new project called “The Nabulu World”. In this project we are going to create a small world from scratch starting by a “zoomed out version of the world” and going on to create a small town; the Nabolos which are squat little alien creatures that populate the Nabulu World as well as their different cool space ships !! As you see there is a lot of work to do but it is going to be extremly fun ! This is going to be BlackthornProd’s second “official” animated movie and of course, we want our animation to be better than last time, our characters more fun and exiting and the story more interesting ! This project has a lot of challenging aspects to it that we definitly think will help BlackthornProd to progress in many different ways so if you are interested in seeing how the Nabulu World project is going to progress I urge you to stay tuned on BlackthornProd ! 🙂
