FAO CAA Yr 1: Toolkit Submission 02/05/16 - What & How You Need To Submit



You've been asked to submit the three projects comprising the unit CG Artist's Toolkit to your blogs by 5pm on Monday 2nd May.  Those three projects are Drawing with Vicky, Animation & Character with Meg, and Autodesk Maya with Simon.  When Vicky, Meg and Simon assess your projects, they're expecting you to have done your housekeeping in accordance with their respective briefs.  For your convenience then, I'm summarising those expectations here. 

Project 1 / Drawing

A final Scribd portfolio of all archived drawings produced during your drawing sessions. Portfolio should be presented professionally and all drawings dated and compiled in chronological order. (This should include any extended studies you may have produced in response to photographs of your life-drawings)

You should also ensure that all Drawing related blog posts are tagged appropriately and consistently, so that all your work can be gathered together under one label.

Project 2 / Animation & Character

Your completed Animation Showreel

A final Scribd portfolio of archived drawings from your sketchbooks. Portfolio should be presented professionally and all drawings dated and compiled in chronological order. (This means all work undertaken in preparation for your animations, so sketchbook character thumbnails, storyboards etc).

You should also ensure that all Animation related blog posts are tagged appropriately and consistently, so that all your work can be gathered together under one label.

Project 3 / Autodesk Maya

In order to meet successfully the learning outcomes of this project, you are expected to complete all tutorials as set during the following classes. You are asked to produce a comprehensive blog archiving and annotating your growing knowledge of Autodesk Maya & Supporting Software for the duration of the project. You should use the blog to demonstrate the completion of class tutorials  

You should also ensure that all Maya tutorial related blog posts are tagged appropriately and consistently, so that all your work can be gathered together under one label.

To see how to organise your completed Maya tutorials visit Charlie Serafini's submission here.

In short, the expectation is you will present 3 organised submissions that will make the very best of the work you've undertaken during the year long Toolkit unit.  You are required therefore to curate your work and think about how your assessors are going to experience your submission. Present your work with confidence and with an emphasis on good design.  I suggest you start thinking about your Toolkit submissions now and utilise your current experience of producing your Fantastic Voyage Art Ofs as you prepare them for assessment.

Please use your social networks to ensure your classmates have seen this information.  Many thanks.
